WALKING IN OBEDIENCE TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

Dec 8, 2023

 Psalms 32:9 Do not be like the horse [or] like the mule, [Which] have no understanding, Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, Else they will not come near you.

Your usefulness in this kingdom is directly proportional to a life of obedience and yieldedness to the Holy Spirit: whether through the written Word, the conviction of the Holy Spirit upon your heart or His work upon your conscious.

The more yielded you are to the Holy Spirit, the more useful you become in the Master’s house, the more strong-willed you are, the less useful in the house of the Lord.

It is a day-by-day journey. Every step of obedience that you take draws you to that place where you are completely yielded to Him. I encourage you to stay away from rebellion and walk in constant obedience to the voice of the Holy Spirit.

Judges 2:10-11 When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the LORD nor the work which He had done for Israel. Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served the Baals;

I pray that will not be your case.  That is what exactly happened to the sons of Eli, they sold themselves to a life of immorality, wickedness and they died. They became reprobate (were beyond conviction and did not respond to the day-to-day biding of the Holy Spirit) and God withdrew from them. (1 Samuel 2:12-17)

That was the end of the priesthood in that lineage. God raised a new priesthood after the order of Melchizedek’ for which David and Jesus took over. I encourage you, to please stay away from a life of disobedience.

Galatians 6:7-8 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

This means you activate the power of death in everything you do when you sow and yield to the flesh. You activate and release the power of life into your business, family, health, etc when you sow to the Spirit. The choice is yours, if you do not want the harvest, change the seed. God works by laws and covenants.

Genesis 8:22 “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease.”

The law of seed time and harvest time controls the life of men. Please don’t sow to the flesh such that you do not reap destruction in any area of your life. Sow to the spirit and let the power of life saturate in all that you do.

If we want to see great results in the spiritual activities you engage in, we must live in obedience to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Our conscious must be soft and we walk in sync with His instructions.

There is so much that God wants to do with our lives and through our lives but we can only be useful to Him when our will is yielded to His. (Hebrews 12:6)

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
