The Fruit Of Your Life
John 15:5, “ I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”
God desires the fruit of your life to produce supernatural results through the demonstration of the Kingdom of God. The atmosphere that you carry should push back darkness and set people free from oppression. The fruit of the Spirit is in the mix of this as it is part and parcel of the Holy Spirit. Just as the Holy Spirit pours the love of God into your heart, the river of His life produces this fruit. This helps you to know how important a life of communion with the Spirit is – especially if you want to see the supernatural manifestation of Heaven on Earth. Faith works by love. God's love being in the fruit of the Spirit that produces faith to set the captives free. With this in mind, the love of God will be shown through your activity (just as Jesus modeled it for you) by working miracles, healing the sick and raising the dead. This is how Jesus modeled love in action. The love of God is substance in the Holy Spirit. The peace of God is substance in the Holy Spirit. The grace of God is substance in the Holy Spirit. As you increase your communion with the Spirit, your experience in God's love, peace, grace and joy increases. You grow as you surrender and submit to the Holy Spirit.
Are You Shining?
Psalm 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
A night light plugged in your wall socket is enough light to navigate your foot steps in a dark room. A table lamp shines bright enough for you to read a book. But I believe God’s Word lights your path like a floodlight in the backyard. It lights up the whole darkened area for you to see. God’s Word builds and adds faith to your life. That kind of faith accentuates the light, whether in your immediate surroundings or for a longer journey down the path. John 1:5 says, “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” When God’s Word is shining on and in you, the path you are embarking on will become much brighter. Jesus said in Matthew 5:16, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Are people glorifying God because His light is shining within you?
Restoration Is Coming!
Galatians 6:1-2, “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
Commercial fishermen very seldom throw away a damaged net. Instead, they mend it or add new cords to reinforce it. In much the same way, when your life is damaged and needs 'mending' the Word of God is available to help mend a broken heart. God’s unconditional love is available to restore and heal your broken spirit. When God told Jeremiah to go down to the potter’s house, the vessel the porter was working on was marred. The potter did not throw the vessel away, he placed it back on the wheel to be shaped and molded again. God’s restoration assists in the mending of that which has been broken. God does not tell you to take a dislocated member (example: shoulder) who has been hurt or bruised and amputate him. He encourages you to restore him and to put them back in place so that the body can function normally again.
He That Believe In God
John 14:12-14, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”
As you continue to press into God and pray for an end to come to the things that are holding you captive, God wants you to know that He is accelerating things in the spirit in order to bring about His purpose for your life. He is overturning the dark agenda of the devil. He will shine light onto the darkness. He is releasing angels to do His bidding. Keep watching as you see miracles after miracles take place. Make the choice to partner with Heaven and flow in the Spirit in a fresh and easy way. Watch God move as you lay your impossibilities at His feet. See and marvel at God’s goodness as miracles of provision and salvation are being poured out. God is pouring out miraculous provision to accomplish His purposes on the earth and put a stop to the devil’s agenda of darkness. These miracles will bring many to know Christ.
