This Is Rhema: The Word That Lives
The Witness of the Holy Spirit is within you, for Jesus said;
“But you shall receive power, after the Holy Spirit has come upon you. And you shall be witnesses unto Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth,” Acts 1:8.
I believe this means that no matter where you are, whether at home with your family, or visiting friends in your home town, visiting a church you initially are not familiar with, or ministering in another town, state or country, your Holy Spirit witness never leaves you.
For Jesus said also that “the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My Name, He shall teach you all things, and will remind you of everything I have said to you,” John 14:26.
Therefore, You have more ability than you think you have; you have more Spirit led skill than you have ever imagined. You have greater capacity for the Power of God to be poured through you than your current frame of reference can allow you to grasp.
When your walk becomes expanded by the anointing that is about to burst forth in your life, there will be a great influx of Spirit led skill levels that will result from the renewing of your mind.
“Therefore, I beseech you brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present you bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God, which will be your worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you can prove what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God,” Romans 12:1-2).
For the LORD is bringing you to the point understanding, that,
“Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, so that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints, what is the breadth, width , length and height, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge. Now to Him Who is able to do FAR ABOVE all that we could ask or think, according to His power that is at work in us, unto Him will be all the glory in the church by Christ Jesus,” Ephesians 3:17-21a.
The eyes of your understanding are being enlightened, so that you will know the hope of your calling.
“I can do all things through Christ Who strengthen me,” Philippians 4:13.
The new “frame of reference” will be coming from experiencing the Power of His Presence, and, from the Word That Is Sent.
This is Rhema. The Word That Lives
Get On With It!
Get on with it with your calling. No one else has your voice. We don’t all have the same calling.
Your calling has unique characteristics blended together that accomplishes unique outcomes that the LORD designed according to The Father’s specific wisdom. He is The LORD Who sees, and the God Who knows.
There is a tremendous treasure contained in an earthen vessel (You).
The excellency of the Power of God is found in you, yet cannot be produced by your own ways.
You must trust in the LORD with all your heart and not lean on your own understanding. You have to acknowledge Him in everything you do so that He will direct your path.
He gives you the Word to speak “on the fly,” while you walk. This involves a sacred trust that cannot be violated. He will show you things to come. It is not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD.
