NOW THE MIND OF THE FLESH [WHICH IS SENSE AND REASON WITHOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT] IS DEATH [DEATH THAT COMPRISES ALL THE MISERIES ARISING FROM SIN, BOTH HERE AND HEREAFTER]. BUT THE MIND OF THE [HOLY] SPIRIT IS LIFE AND [SOUL] PEACE [BOTH NOW AND FOREVER]
(Romans 8:6 AMP).
Capture that the human mind loves to reason without the Holy Spirit. However, reasoning without the Holy Spirit causes you to become a servant of unrighteousness, in your thoughts, in your actions, and in your purpose.
AND HAVING BEEN SET FREE FROM SIN, YOU HAVE BECOME THE SERVANTS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (OF CONFORMITY TO THE DIVINE WILL IN THOUGHT, PURPOSE, AND ACTION)
(Romans 6:18 AMP).
The Perfect Father is calling you with a holy calling, this glorious season, to become a servant of Righteousness—to conform to His Divine Will in your thoughts, your actions, and your purpose.
IN THE SAME WAY, THE SPIRIT HELPS US IN OUR WEAKNESS. WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT WE OUGHT TO PRAY FOR, BUT THE SPIRIT HIMSELF INTERCEDES FOR US THROUGH WORDLESS GROANS. AND HE WHO SEARCHES OUR HEARTS KNOWS THE MIND OF THE SPIRIT, BECAUSE THE SPIRIT INTERCEDES FOR GOD’S PEOPLE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE WILL OF GOD
Beautiful One, to become a servant of My Righteousness in your thoughts, actions, and purpose, you need to allow the Holy Spirit to have His way in you. Listen carefully to the Voice of the Holy Spirit inside you and find out how He is praying for you, because the Holy Spirit intercedes for you, in you, and through you in accordance with My Will for you. Then, adapt your thoughts, actions, and purpose according to His prayer for you.
How might you become a servant of Righteousness in your thoughts, purpose, and actions, this Christmas Season?
PRAYER: Lord God, I desire to become a servant of Righteousness in my thoughts, actions, and purpose. Help me in my weakness to become sensitive to the reasoning of the Holy Spirit in me, so I may adapt my thoughts, actions, and purpose in accordance with Your Will. Help me to hear the Voice of the Holy Spirit when He intercedes for me, so I may adapt my prayers to match His and pray according to Your Will, as well.
Maintain an Awareness
So, yes, the deepest urge in human nature seems to be the desire to be important–to matter. But, it is not the PRINCIPLE of wanting to be important that is wrong; instead, it is the way we adapt or the means we adopt to meet this most urgent desire of our hearts.
