2017 Fasting Guide – Day Six
WHEN WE ARE EQUIPPED BY THE SPIRIT, WE WILL STAY IN THE SPIRIT OF HUMILITY
Humility is the opposite of arrogance and pride. Jesus was never prideful, but He was confident, because of His relationship with God. So we must realize that Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, will help us to be so dependent on God, that the only thing that we have to do to have supernatural results is be obedient. And our obedience comes because our heart wants nothing more than to lift up His name. Paul was a perfect example of this as he shared his life and his heart with the Corinthians. Do you know that Paul walked by the Spirit? Walking by the Spirit is:
His humility made a way for more of the power of the Spirit to flow through Him. These are secrets of operating in the supernatural. Humility opens the door to operate by the power of the Spirit. The power will increase when we depend not on ourselves, but on the fact that the message of the gospel, presented in love, carries with it whatever demonstration is needed to get the point across to those who are waiting for it.
1 Corinthians 2:4-5 NIV
What God has prepared for you to do, you cannot realize in your natural mind. There is nothing you could do to make it happen. But by the Spirit it becomes so easy. It comes from the inside out.
You must understand that you can't understand on your own. There is more to be known from God of your own purpose and destiny and it can only be revealed one way.
1 Corinthians 2:10 NIV
When the Spirit of God is in operation, there is no end to the wisdom, the revelation and the understanding that you need.
Do you understand that what you don't understand, you CAN understand, but only by the Spirit of God? Hallelujah! I believe that during this fast, this understanding will be a part of what the end result will be.
Let us pray for the Church as a whole:
Dear Father, We ask, in Jesus’ name, that the Church, all of Your people, will have deep experiences with You like never before. That Holy Spirit is awakening the righteousness consciousness inside of Your people, and drowning out pride. We pray that the Church will arise, equipped by the power that lies within them, which was given to them at salvation. We declare that the world is being shaken with the advancement of Your truth and Your love!
