HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR MEASURE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT pt2

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Heb 4:1-2

Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. 2 For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith. a

NIV

Without faith it is impossible to please God (see Heb 11:6). Faith in this case also means a trust in God that He will do what He says and that He wants the best for you at all times; He will never lead you to doom or shame (this is what the Israelites who fell in the wilderness did not have).

There are many instructions the lord has given us that may seem hard for us, they may look as if obeying His will would make us suffer great loss in certain situations. It is in these cases that your faith in God is tried. You need to know that God truly loves you and He wants the best for you at all times. It may not physically look as if the best is what will happen to you if you continue to do the Lord’s will in certain situations, but that is what faith is, faith is what makes you trust God knowing that no matter what, because God is all powerful and all knowing, He will ultimately bring out the best that no human wisdom could possibly produce.

Faith in God also means believing in His power to do great things through you in this life.

This posture of mind (one that absolutely trusts and believes in the integrity of God’s word) is one that the Holy Spirit loves and manifests His greatness through.

One of the ways of maximizing your measure of the Holy Spirit is by trusting in Him; Having faith and believing that you have what God says you have, you can do all that He says you can do and you will go to all the places that He says you will go.

Prayer Confession: in Jesus name, from this day forth , I decree that I have all God says I have, I can do what God says I can do , I will get to where God says I will get to, In Jesus mighty name. Amen
