Producing the Fruit of the Spirit
One sign you are filled with The Holy Spirit is when you are producing the fruit of the Spirit.
Producing the fruit of the Spirit does not mean trouble is absent from your life, or you are not experiencing difficulties, it means that in spite of what happens or is happening in your life, The Holy Spirit who lives on the inside of you uplifts and empowers you to respond, go through and deal with the different circumstances and situations you may face and encounter on a daily basis.
When you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you will become strengthened and empowered to overcome any situation designed to weary, depress, or pull you down.
This is the reason we cannot do it without God, and we should seek to abide in Him ALWAYS.
John 15:4 says, “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.”
Until we understand that without Him we can do NOTHING; we will forever live in misery, be defeated, struggle and be in bondage.
You see, the Holy Spirit is also a Comforter; He comforts us in our times of sorrow, sadness and pain.
Being filled with Him is being so empowered by Him that you feel as though you can conqueror the world.
You see, He did tell us that we are not just conquerors but we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS.
A Spirit filled child of God who allows The Holy Spirit to flow through them will be continuously overwhelmed with joy and bliss.
You will time after time feel free (who the Son sets free, is free indeed) and light as if you are floating on thin air.
The Holy Spirit is also like a navigation system, He will guide you. When you allow Him to lead you, you will not be encompassed with trivial matters or things designed by the enemy to steal your peace, slow you down or distract you.
You will become intentional about living your purpose and walking in your destiny.
May we continue to abide in The LORD as we allow The Holy Spirit to fill and empower us to walk in victory and triumph and not live in self-pity or be wimps and worriers, knowing and embracing the fact that God has already done it regardless of what the enemy may create or set up or send our way.
Have an awesome afternoon guys!
Understanding and Knowing
You will never understand or be able to relate to the true meaning of a praise and worship song until you have been through exactly what is being testified about…
I know God is my strength, because it is He who has taken and continues to take me through…
He is my strength like no other!
