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:

1 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 3 I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. - 1 Corinthians 2:1-3 NIV

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.

4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, 5 so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power. -
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.

However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” the things God has prepared for those who love Him. - 1 Corinthians 2:9 NIV

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.

These are the things God has revealed to us by His Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. -
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.

For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. - 1 Corinthians 2:11 NIV

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.

What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. - 1 Corinthians 2:12 NIV
You will experience and be sure of what God has freely given to you. Not by natural understanding, but by the Spirit. And as you do, you will be equipped by the Spirit for all the assignments that He has written for you before the foundation of the world. I pray, as Paul did for the Ephesians, that out of His glorious riches, He will strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your innermost being, so you can operate in the fullness of who God has made you to 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!
