Relationship Topic - 11 Things To Walk In The Spirit
Why would you? Walk in the Spirit and you won’t fulfill the lusts of the flesh. Even Moses understood and begged God, if your Spirit does go with me, don’t send me up from this place. The picture of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament was the Pillar of Fire by Night, and the Pillar of Cloud by Day. Just like Moses didn’t move without it, and wherever it went he went. The same picture is for the New Covenant, New Testament Life – in the Spirit. Don’t leave home without Him. Let Him lead, you follow. That’s how you walk in the Spirit. So what are Eleven Things To Walk In The Spirit?
#1 Be filled with the Spirit. You need to receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. It’s the power you need. You can’t walk in the Spirit if you’ve never been filled with the Spirit, Baptized in the Holy Spirit. It was the first step of obedience that Jesus told His disciples to do. Why? So you receive power from on high. You can’t live a kingdom life, by the power of the flesh, by mind, will, or emotions. Your natural mind isn’t the mind of Christ. Your will is insufficient to overcome the enemy. And your emotions are about as dependable as a bad leg. You need the power of the Holy Spirit to live the Christian life – to operate in a heavenly kingdom, you need heavenly power. That’s why Jesus commanded His followers to wait in Jerusalem until the Holy Ghost is come upon you, and you will be my witnesses (martyrs) unto me in Jerusalem, Judea, and the utmost parts of the earth. If you love me, you will obey what I command. You are my friends if you obey my commands. First Step: Salvation (putting your faith and trust in Jesus Christ, letting Him take over your life. And Second Step: Be Baptized in the Holy Spirit.
#3 Praise. He inhabits the praises of His people. How. Jesus doesn’t come down in bodily form, the Holy Spirit is the part of God – that He sends to inhabit your praise. If you are filled with the Spirit, and you pray in the Spirit and you praise – The Holy Spirit will inhabit your praise.
#4 Consume Gods’ Word. Do PRISM – increase your PRISM time, and especially your consistency in it. The sword of the Spirit is the Word of God. So to walk in the Spirit, you need the Holy Spirit to reveal what God’s Word says. If you read it with your brain, you will only get what your brain understands. That’s why people say – I’ve tried to read the Bible, but I just don’t get anything out of it, it just make sense. Of course it doesn’t, not to your natural mind, this is spirit, not flesh. You need the Holy Spirit to reveal what God’s Word really means. God promised the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth.
#5 PiVAT before dinner – If you walk in the Spirit, you will walk somewhere. To walk in the Spirit you must know God’s plans for you. PiVAT before dinner is "Walk in the Spirit Practice," it’s "Hearing the Voice of God practice." It’s "prophetic practice." If you ask God what you need most from Him tomorrow. He will tell you. (not next week, that would be giving you a stone instead of bread… He’ll tell you in time for your need according to your request.) He wants you to know what you need most… because That’s what He wants to and is about to - give you. You need to know what it is, so you recognize it when it comes. So you have it – to do and become what He has for you today! To walk in the Spirit – what you walk in – needs to be what the Spirit tells you. If you ask Him the #1 Thing He wants you to do today, He will tell you! It’s how you walk in the Spirit – walk in what He tells you to do! The will of the Father. It’s that cloud moving. When He moves, you move! If you ask Him when He wants you to do it. He will tell you. God’s really big on timing. Timing is everything - His timing is perfect. The more you walk in the Spirit – the more you will walk in his perfect Chiros time! And if you ask Him what your testimony is for today. What He did when you obeyed, and what He revealed from His Word. He will remind you, you will remember, so you can walk in it. That’s what Walk in the Spirit is – walking by the Spirit of God, not your mind or plans or ideas. Get His plans – from the Spirit of God, so you can walk in them by the power that the Spirit of God gives you! You can’t do it in your own power, but His power for you is limitless!
#6 Obey - To walk in the Spirit you must make it a habit to obey the first thing He tells you. Whatever He reveals through your PiVAT for today – God’s Plans for you. Do it at the time He tells you. Whatever He reveals in PRISM – Do it immediately. The quicker your turnaround, when you hear His voice, the greater your obedience grows. If you don’t obey immediately, you are less likely to obey. If you don’t obey completely, you are less likely to obey. Obey the first thing He tells you. That’s how you walk in the Spirit. Ask Him, Do you want me to do this right now? If He says yes, stop what you are doing, and do it right now. If He says, “No finish what I told you to do in this hour. Ask Him when do you want me to do this? Write down the time today, on your PiVAT page, and do it at that time. If you don’t know for sure, if you don’t clearly sense the time, write it on your PiVAT Maybe List – for God to confirm, delay or delete, and trust Him to reveal it to you at the proper time. To walk in the Spirit – you must make it a habit to obey first thing! Immediately and completely.
#7 Walk Away – To walk in the Spirit you need to walk away from anything He didn’t say. You’ll have other voices, trying to talk to you. The devil will try to lead you his way. Walk Away. The Fear of the LORD is to turn from evil. Instantly, like a putrid smell. The first evil is anything that the Holy Spirit didn’t say. The more you obey His voice, and walk in the WORD, the more your discernment will grow. You will recognize that voice as something other than him. It will sound good, and seem good, but if it’s not the Holy Spirit leading you – it’s the devil leading you astray. If you don’t know for sure. Ask the Holy Spirit – to distinguish it for you. He will. To walk in the Spirit – you need to learn to walk away (turn from) anything He didn’t say.
#8 Overcome - To walk in the Spirit God said you overcome (walking another way) by the blood of the Lamb, and the word of your testimony. God said exhort one another daily, so you won’t be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. That other voice that seems right, but isn’t. Good things to do, that He didn’t tell you, aren’t good for you. To Walk in the Spirit you need to overcome walking another way. God said exhort one other daily. Your Daily Call will help you walk in the Spirit – because you testify to what the Holy Spirit revealed to you every day. Their obedience helps you, yours helps them. And the Holy Spirit prays through you the very words and will of their Heavenly Father for them, and can equally speak the Words of your Father through them for you!
#9 Worship. Get In God’s Presence. Don’t wait until church on Sunday! Do it today! Worship will set you apart, and set the environment for the Holy Spirit to move. God said enter his gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful unto Him and bless His Name. Any time you come to Him, away from every other distraction and noise – He will reveal Himself. The Holy Spirit inhabits the praises of His people, and that time of worship – He will fill with His presence. His voice becomes clearer. Put on a live worship set from YouTube. Sing to the LORD, and make music in your heart to Him. Put your voice to it, and your hands to it. Worship Him, and His presence will fill your heart, you will encounter the Holy Spirit drawing you closer to your Heavenly Father and all that He has for you.
#10 Ask God to Help you! Ask God to fill you with His Spirit every day. Ask God to help you walk in the Spirit so you don’t fulfill the lusts of the flesh. Declare that By His Grace you will walk in the Spirit, Thank Him for His promise. To send the Holy Spirit to lead you in all truth. And you can thank the Holy Spirit as well. He is a person that if fully God, just like God the Father, and His Son Jesus. You can have a relationship with the Holy Spirit. The more you talk with Him, the closer you will be. And if you have the Holy Spirit, you have the Son, because what the Father gives the Son, the Holy Spirit gives you! John 16:13 – But when He, the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me by taking what is mine and disclosing it to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.
#11 Walk in the Spirit Financially - 4C’s – Know the Condition of your flock, give an account. Know where God’s money is so you can do what God tells you to do with it. Let the Holy Spirit make your money decisions, God’s perfect will for you… And not only will you be reminded, that God owns the money, if you learn to fully obey with it, you will love God every day, not money. That’s the #11 Thing to walk in the Spirit? Yep. You cannot love God and money. If you don’t yield your financial decisions, you will make decisions based on money, not the Holy Spirit. It’ll seem right, but won’t be right. They say money talks, it’s true. It’s just not the voice of the Holy Spirit. Mammon wants to lead you, and if money leads you, you’re not being led by the Spirit. Why do they say follow the money? Because most people are led by money, not the Holy Spirit. You cannot love God and money – that means you cannot serve God and money. Either you are led by the Spirit, or you are led by mammon. What ever voice you listen to and obey – that’s what you walk by. See the Money Packet, and Do 4C’s every day – It’s Walking in the Spirit practice. God uses money to teach you to hear the Spirit’s voice. It’s so black and white, there or not. Just like PiVAT for time, and PRISM for your mind, 4C’s will help you walk in the Spirit financially – so you learn to love God, not money.
