Many who think they are walking in the Spirit are spiritual joggers. Walking is something you do all the time, at home, work and play. Jogging is short lived and programmed to fit your schedule. How long you jog depends on your energy level and schedule. The limit is different for each person. Millions of western believers, leave a Holy Spirit Power charged meeting all fired up and ready to save the world. Twenty four hours later they are spiritually flatlined, and not even interested in saving their next door neighbor.
Some leave home in the morning spiritually fired up and return home depressed. This signifies you are a jogger and not a walker. Joggers get their spirit energy second hand from other believers. At times they glean energy from listening to anointed worship music, anointed preaching, or a dream or vision. However walking in the Spirit requires, a daily one on one with Me in the secret place. The secret place is where I meet with you personally and impart My energy into your spirit man, giving you the ability to abide all day long under My wing, Psalm 91. Spiritual Jogging believers seldom hear My voice directly, but feed off sermons and prophecies only, without a daily time in the secret place.
If your average day regularly ends in depression or a defeated attitude because of the pressure, one of four things is happening. Either you are operating outside your gift, not allowed to use your gift, not where I have called you to be, or you are a spiritual jogger, feeding off other people’s anointing and running out of energy quickly. Those who are more than conquerors end most of their days in victory. When you are more than a conqueror through him that loves you,  you are persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, will be able to separate you from the love of Father, which is in Me, Romans 8:37-39
