Be Conscious of the Spirit of God in you.

Theme: Be Conscious of the Spirit of God in you.
  

Memory Verse: 

” Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:21)

  
Beloved

We praise God for His love, grace and mercy for humanity. In Christ, God is omnipresent. He is present everywhere at all times. Only the living God in Christ has this divine attribute. If we allow Him to, He is present in our hearts, cars, houses, communities and nations. Believers often travel long distances to search for God in Christ. The truth is , if Christ is well formed in your heart (Gal 4:19), then be sure you carry God within you.

 

 

When Jesus was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God will come, He responded: “the kingdom of God is within you”(Luk 17:21). His answer is loaded with meaning. The Bible says our body is the living temple of God, hence we ought to keep it holy. According to apostle Paul: “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” (1Cor 6:19). He then added: ” For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s”(1Cor 6:20).

 

 

In Christ, we need this God’s consciousness in our daily walk with Him. Once, we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, then the true God dwells in us. This is why apostle John declares : “Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). This is why Brother Paul declares: “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Col 1:27).This why the Psalmist declares: ” I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High” (Psalm 82:6). There are many passages in the word of God from the old to the New Testament, declaring our divine nature and oneness with God in Christ Jesus.

 Once, you have received Jesus Christ into your heart, there is the need for you to grow in grace and knowledge that is in Christ Jesus, to enable Christ to be well formed in you. The plan of God is to manifest all true believers as sons of God on earth, as revealed by Brother Paul: “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God”(Rom 8:19).

 

God is a Spirit (John 4:24). The Holy Spirit of God will not dwell in a vessel (body) that is impure. The Spirit of God is a spirit of righteousness. What is that habit or attitude that you secretly hold unto, which you know very well does not glorify God in your life. You may call it any name, but if it does not bring glory to God, please drop it NOW. Is it procrastination? Is it laziness? Is it miserliness? Is it sleeping too much? Is it impure thoughts? Is it poverty of ideas? Is it speaking unedifying words. As a Spirit, God has ears, feelings, eyes etc. As you have spoken to His ears, so he will do for you (Numbers 14:28). The Holy Spirit cannot withstand imperfection, hence the Word says: “Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity” (Habakkuk 1:13).

 
To conclude, in order to optimise your work and walk with God in Christ on earth, you need to carry that consciousness that the kingdom God is within you. The kingdom of Christ is a kingdom of power, wisdom, righteousness, boldness, transparency, hard work, integrity, truth, care, comfort, peace, light etc. In your walk with God, always remember God does not compromise on humility and contrite heart: “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones” (Isa 57:15).  

 

 

The words of God are spirit and they are life (John 6:63). Meditate on the word of God day and night and be transformed.

  

 Have a Spirit-filled week.

 

 To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). However, the first thing you must desire greatly is total spiritual freedom through the truth in the word of God ( John 8:32, 36). Thereafter, ask God for sanctification by the truth in His word ( John 17:17).

Prayer: 

Father, give me the grace to be conscious of your Holy Spirit in me at all times in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
 

Yours in the Vineyard of Jesus Christ. Ben Bassey, Iyobosa, Esther & the beloved MOW family network.

The Word (52)-the Word is appealing for your return.

MOW-True Spirituality 

Word for Today

The Word (52)-the Word is appealing for your RETURN

“Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning” (Joel 2:12).

Beloved 

There is no situation or circumstance the Word of God can not help you through. All He wants from you is to sincerely return to Him with all your heart with ‘fasting’ and ‘weeping’ as per our memory verse.
As a psychiatrist, I have seen many people in severe mental distress because of what they have done in the past. Some people find it very difficult to come to terms with their past. They often live their present in the past. No matter your past, if you listen to the Word today and surrender all to Him, He will carry your burden and give you comfort and peace. 
Jesus is appealing to every one with heavy burden:
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest…” ( Matthew 11:28-29)
He is knocking at the door of your heart (Revelation 3:20). Hope you will answer Him today.

PRAYER

Father, please, give me the grace to surrender all to you and sincerely return to you in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

The Word (51)-There is FIRE in the Word.

MOW-True Spirituality 

Word for Today

The Word (51)-There is FIRE in the Word.

“Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? ” (Jeremiah 23:29).

Beloved 

The fire in the word of God is better experienced. It may not be easy to explain to others how it look like. There is fire in the word of God. When you are sufficiently cleaved to the Word and you soak yourself with the word of God, the fire begins to burn in your body(flesh). I mean feelings of physical fire in your flesh.

What we need most in the body of Christ (the church) today is the fire of revival. This is what will drive away pretenders in the church. The bible tells us that God wants His ministers to be flame of fire :

“And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire” ( Hebrews 1:7)
Do not be a cold Christian. Wake up and experience the fire of the living God by staying with the Word. Meditate on the word of God day and night. Remember, there is no light without fire. The fire is in the word of God:
“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple” ( Psalm 119:130).

PRAYER

Father, please, give me the grace to manifest the FIRE in your word at all times in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

The Word (50)-Nothing can ever destroy the Word.

Word for Today

The Word (50)-Nothing can ever destroy the Word.

“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18).

Beloved 

The Word of God is the source of true power. Nothing can ever destroy the Word. The Word of God, Jesus Christ is the head of the church. He assured all true believers that the church can never be destroyed; that the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church.
Please, note that the church the bible is talking about here is not a physical building, rather those hearts that have been filled and saturated with the truth. The bible says: 

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). 
The Word of God is the truth (John 14:6). Nothing can ever destroy the truth.
Beloved, hold unto the truth in the word of God, and you can never be destroyed. Hold unto the truth in the word of God and you shall be sanctified. Hold unto the truth in the word of God and you shall never die. Hold unto the truth in the Word and you shall live even when you die:
“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (John 11:25).

PRAYER

Father, please, give me the grace to defend the truth in your word at all times in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

The Word (49)-Have you found the Word?

MOW-True Spirituality 

Word for Today

The Word (49)-Have you found the Word?

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it ” (Matthew 13:45-46).

Beloved 

Am often amazed that people who claim to love Jesus Christ, the Word of God, do not often have time for Him. If truly you have found Him and you understand His value, you would consider all other things as nothing in accordance with the experience of apostle Paul.
Someone has said many people in the body of Christ, are merely befriending Jesus, they have not yet fallen in love with Him. Perhaps, this is true. How often do you spend time with the Word in 24 hours? I do not mean in the religious sense. How often do you eat the word of God? (Jeremiah 15:16). How often do you share Jesus Christ with others in 24 hours? Out of 7 days in a week, how often do you share the truth in the Word with others? 

Jesus Himself taught us many parables such as above, to explain the value of the word of God and the kingdom of God. Apostle Paul considered everything else as nothing after he found the Word. Hear him:
“But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ” ( Philippians 3:7-8).

Please, wake up!

PRAYER

Father, please, give me the grace to value the Word above every other thing in my life in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

The Word (48)-the word of God is your SWORD.

MOW-True Spirituality 

Word for Today
The Word (48)-the word of God is your SWORD.

“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17)

Beloved 

The word of God is your spiritual sword with which you wage war. Imagine yourself being at war front in the physical sense without your sword or any weapon. Some Christians behave as if they have fulfilled all righteousness, once they ‘go to church’ with a big bible in their hands.
Many Christians lack the understanding that Christianity is a spiritual warfare. We are at war. It is a war between light & darkness. It is a battle between faith and doubt. It is a fight between good & evil. It is a battle between truth & lies. It is a battle between good health and sickness. It is a battle between coldness and hotness. It is a battle between knowledge and ignorance. It is a fight between justice & injustice. To be a winner in these battles of life, you need to learn increasing spiritual understanding. You need to put on your full armour of God (Ephesians 6:11). Lack of humility has deprived many from learning, partly due to the simplicity of the gospel.
Apostle Paul admonished his spiritual son, Timothy:
“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses” (1Timothy 6:12).
My prayer is that before you complete your sojourn on earth, you will be able to say as Apostle Paul: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith…” (2Timothy 4:7-8).

PRAYER

Father, please, give me the grace to be a winner in the battles of life in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

The Word (47)-the word of God is for ever settled.

MOW-True Spirituality 

Word for Today

The Word (47)-the word of God is for ever settled.

“For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89).

Beloved 

Trust in the integrity of the word, and you find out that no matter your circumstances, all things will work together for your good at the end.
Everything written in the word of God is true. Unfortunately, some people only obey the word of God selectively, both within the church and outside the church. Selective obedience is dangerous. Every word of God is true. Every word of God is pure.
God is not a man that He would lie. God can never deny Himself. The scriptures cannot be broken. Your responsibility is to trust the Word of God completely:
“Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him” (Proverbs 30:5).

PRAYER

Father, please help me to trust in the integrity of your word no matter my circumstances in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
