We are now given the power of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit inside of us to heal the sick. We have the same power as Jesus and his disciples. We have God's GPS installed in us to keep us from danger that can also be used to send God's blessings.
If we can keep our minds and spirits pure by constantly fighting the weakness of our flesh.
Galatians 5:16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
We have quicker access to God now, then in the time of David because of the Holy Spirit deposited in us. But, because of our sinful sin nature we can grieve the Holy Spirit from entering God’s throne when we are filled with rage and anger. Our attitudes and behaviors can prevent us from receiving the blessings of God.
Ephesians 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
We have to continually renew the spirit of our minds. Clean the house. Get rid of the garbage files. If you’re holding anger and rage inside of you. You aren’t receiving the blessings of God.
Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
When you renew your mind you’re cleaning your soul, and the Holy Spirit that works with the spirit inside of you can approach and receive the blessings of God.
Galatians 5:13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. 16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
Romans 8:14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Let the Holy Spirit work in your life by loving and forgiving those all around you, and by forgiving those that have done you wrong. God cannot bless you until you have forgiven others. God cannot bless you unless you’re a blessing to others. When you hold anger against someone you also hold resentment towards them.
Let your life be a walking testimony of how the Holy Spirit is working in your life with the reflections of the fruit of the spirit flowing through you.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.
