Growing Intimacy in Him

Growing Intimacy in Him
So today as I prepare to leave town, I noticed that I was in a short phase of stagnancy. Not given any inspiration from the LORD for this blog and coming to a stark realization as to why. While also verifying that I of myself can do nothing, but what the Spirit gives me is personified. Because it is not by might or power, but by His Spirit.
As I drove home Sunday night from a particularly harsh and draining weekend of work I communed with the LORD. It was so exciting because the Spirit had been communicating with me, at the same time with confirmation from others. (Including Bishop R.C. Blake’s, Jr. and Pastor Donna Mosley of BALM Church).
With every situation, I was being shown a point in life where God manifested His glory, even the how and why this embodiment was prevalent.
So, let me say this. I know that God will confirm His Word. But as the affinity for Jesus becomes magnified, you will reach a point where the Spirit is saying that “you don’t need to look to anyone else for what I am telling you”.
Confirming Elevation in the Spirit
Now let me give you a couple of scriptures that verify this. “I will bless the LORD who has counseled me; Indeed, my heart (mind) instructs me in the night (Psalm 16: 7, AMP).
And “As for you, the anointing [the special gift, the preparation] which you received from Him remains [permanently] in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you. But just as His anointing teaches you [giving you insight through the presence of the Holy Spirit] about all things, and is true and not a lie, and just as His anointing has taught you, you must remain in Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him] (1 John 2:27, AMP). As more of these come to me, if God is willing, I will add them here.
Please let me make this clear. As I have said in a past episode, the Bible is a book of promises. But it is more than that. It is a contract between you and Jesus. So, if you do not fulfill your part, then you definitely will not expect that God should carry out His portion.
Deceit and Denial Leads to Rejection
God’s Word is truth, as Pastor Mosley stated, facts can change but the truth remains the same. To truly trust Him we must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. This is why being deceived is so dangerous.
I firmly believe that it is your choice to accept the truth or a lie. If you choose the latter, then you are rejecting God because He is the truth. This is imperative!!! God is Spirit [the source of life, yet invisible to mankind], and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth (John 4: 24, AMP).
When we choose to think and believe out of our own desires, we repudiate truth. To drive this point home, I am going to include nouns of the word “reject” which are a failure, loser, and incompetent. One synonym is to deny. When you do this, you are saying that Jesus does not exist.
This is why 1 Corinthians 3:19 states, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness (absurdity and stupidity) before God; for it is written [in scripture], “[He is] THE ONE WHO CATCHES THE WISE and CLEVER IN THEIR CRAFTINESS “;
The Wiles of the Enemy
The Spirit wants you to have a clear understanding so I will give you this revelation as I end this, with the definition of ‘crafty’. “Clever at achieving one’s aims by indirect or deceitful methods”. Hence the saying, “the devil (enemy) is crafty”.
As you are elevated in God the attacks will become more evident. I was in a mental fog and distracted after spending time with the LORD. I was also tested shortly after and failed. God told me to pray on a situation while giving me information that only He could know concerning my daughter. Her unbelief affected me to the point where I started to doubt what God had told me.
Once His Word was made manifest, I quickly realized the error of my ways. I had just been given the reminder that the devil doesn’t care who he uses.
So, beware. Trusting God’s truth is critical in our walks with Him. Without it, we are doomed to fail.
Let me also say that confirmation is good and godly if this is where you are spiritually. But as you are elevated, as you commune with Him, the more intimate the bond is between you two. And the more He expects from you. It is required. Be ready!!!
Always coming from a place of love!!!
