DISCERNING THE CURRENT OF THE SPIRIT!

Oct 17, 2021

You ought to always be sensitive to the current of the Holy Spirit if you want to rise in any area of your life.

John 3:8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Christians are likened to an eagle.

He found him out in the wilderness, in an empty, windswept wasteland. He threw his arms around him, lavished attention on him, guarding him as the apple of his eye. He was like an eagle hovering over its nest, overshadowing its young, Then spreading its wings, lifting them into the air, teaching them to fly. Deuteronomy 32:11-12

Eagle is not like other birds who flap their wings to gain speed but it thrives on the wind current.

God put within its system the ability to sense the wind.

Unlike other birds, it sits on the rock and waits for the right wind to flow, it lifts its wings and the wind begins to carry it.

That’s how God designed me and you to walk this Christian life.

Zechariah 4:6 Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit.

Our lives have been designed into a season and work in cycles. You just need to learn the time just like the waves on the sea.

You wait, time, and enter the wave and it carries you.

 Genesis 11:4

 And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens;.. Genesis 11:4

The building was going on but God was not in it.

The fact that your exceeding in something is not an indicator that God is in it.

 Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.

It may begin well but destruction, pain, and frustration show up at the end.

That’s why you can not judge people by their success.

We step out of the realm of the physical senses and tune our spiritual antennas and discern if God is in that thing.

That’s the life of an eagle, discernment built in by God.

Sensitivity to the spirit is the key to the fulfillment of joy, not money, cars, or any materialistic things.

Many people have all that but their lives still want because God is not in it.

You can know that God is not in it by learning to discern the spirit especially in this last age where deception is everywhere.

 2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.

We don’t use physical senses but rather spiritual. That’s the ability of the spirit that has been placed on the inside of us.

Being a lover of the word of God is one of the ways of sharpening your ability to feel the spirit.

 Joshua 1:8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.

God was so emphatic to Joshua when he took over Moses to lead his sons into the promised land.

God was showing him how to walk into the land that had been promised and take possession.

Possession of the land was predicated on Joshua’s ability, willingness, and obedience in meditating on the word of God.

Meditation, singing, and speaking of the word will empower you. You are empowered by your interaction with the word of God.

Everything comes to you packaged in it.

Joshua was very anointed since Moses had imparted his wisdom upon him through laying of hands but he needed to read and walk In the word to manifest the promises of God to children of Israel.

Jesus, the son of God never made a move until 30years elapsed. He was waiting for the current of the Holy Spirit.

 Luke 3:21-22 When  all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized; and while He prayed, the heaven was opened. And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You, I am well pleased.”

From there, He was led by the Spirit and he finished His ministration in three and half years.

The leading of the Holy Spirit simplifies your life and assignment to do.

 John 7:6 Then Jesus said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready.

Jesus did not move because He wanted but He had to wait for the move of the spirit

That’s what makes life and ministry easy. He is the boss and your role is to obey.

Angel stirred up the water, and whoever turned up first received healing ( John 5).

It is all about understanding and discerning and you jump in.

May the Lord sharpen your ability to discern!
