(11/27/2000) edifying the spirit
|Hello prayer warriors,
1. Prayer note: edifying the spirit
One of the ways to edify the spirit is to increase the
intake of the Word of God. Many times we are not
edified because we have listened to the wrong source.
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the
word of God.
We are the outcome of the input that we receive.
[1 Peter 2:2]
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word,
that ye may grow thereby:
If we want to grow, we need to study and listen to the
Word of God.
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth
nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are
spirit, and they are life.
How do we continue to grow in our Christian walk and
how do we get excited continually?
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true
worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in
truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must
worship him in spirit and in truth.
God wants us to worship Him in spirit and in truth. I
am still trying to graple with this verse but I
believe that when God says that He wants to worship
Him in truth, He meant the Word of God. It is the Word
of God that edifies and cause our spirit to leap
within us to worship Him. When we hear the Word, our
spirit responds in agreement and we start changing our
perspective of reality. Reality is not what we see.
There is a higher reality and a greater truth, and
that is in the Word of God.
[2 Cor 4:18]
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at
the things which are not seen: for the things which
are seen are temporal; but the things which are not
seen are eternal.
I read Jerry Savelle's revelation on this verse which
has completely inspired me. The revelation is this:
what is seen is temporal, which means what is seen is
subject to change. What is not seen is eternal. God is
able to change things and what He has set in His mind
eternally to do will be done if we wait for it and not
give up. But we can only stand when we stand on His
Word, and when we learn not to be frustrated, but to
be edified and worship Him in truth.
