2017 Fasting Guide – Day Five
BEING EQUIPPED BY BEING OBEDIENT
Galatians 5 is an amazing chapter of the Word. It is not, however, most people's favorite chapter. Because it addresses things in our lives that we need to be aware of, and produce change in, so we can walk in the fullness of the supernatural.
Being led by the Spirit is a choice we must make every day. And many times, moment by moment. The Spirit is totally opposed to anything of our carnal nature. Are you ready to be equipped by the Spirit? Do you want to live limited or limitless? If so, you must make a decision right here and right now, if you really want God to meet all your needs, or if you also want to meet all His needs. He has need of you to be His representative on earth. But He is looking for a people that is sold out to Him. Sold out to His heart. Completely. Nothing held back. So, here we go - ready for the supernatural?
At this point, each one of us must let the Spirit of God reveal to our hearts where the enemy may have gained entrance into our lives, so when it is exposed it can be evicted. It is our choice. Here is the good news:
Galatians 5:18 ESV
He is admonishing us to walk in the Spirit. And as we do, obedience to Him and to His will, will become something that is very natural. You will obey out of love because you are so aware of who He is in you, and what He has done, that the desires of this world have nothing in you. All that He is will become a part of you and you will walk with joy in obeying. It will not be a struggle, it will be a delight. And do you know obedience brings the blessing?
God has lands assigned to you that you are to possess. I’m not talking about real estate (although that could be included), God is talking on a higher level. He is talking about places that have been assigned to us to rule and reign over. Places that satan has occupied that have now been assigned to YOU. You are where you are so you can displace the enemy, and God can rule and reign in those regions to bring life and hope to all the inhabitants. Christians, we have lost some land because of complacency, because we forgot who we are and how powerful we are IN HIM. But it is time for us to arise again and take back what the enemy has been busy trying to steal from us. Even while I was writing this, this is one of the scriptures God gave me, to put our faith on:
Expand your faith. Believe for more territory in your life. Whether it be in your workplace, your business, your home, or actual cities, it is time for us to believe for MORE. He is the one who will establish you to do this.
Do you want to increase in the blessing? Obedience makes the way.
Your faith will have such power, as your confidence increases, as you know that you are walking in what the Lord has asked of you. The blessing will come to you. You won’t have to beg for the blessing, or seek the blessing. You will live in increase as you change your mind about who you are and why you are here. Let’s change our mindset to the mind of God. We are not here to exist and just get by. We were created to possess, subdue, and have dominion.
Let's be honest before the Lord, let’s be fruitful for the Kingdom, and let’s take cities for God!
