January 3, 2020 Spirit Meat :- DAILY DEVELOPING A STRONG SPIRIT TO SUSTAIN THE GLORY OF GOD – PSALM 11:3
The next daily activity you must carry out to unlock the power of daily Christianity is developing a strong spirit to sustain the glory of God.
One of the lessons I learnt growing up as a minister was to look at men that carried great anointing and crashed. I saw people that stumbled, those who the enemy defeated and I sought from the Lord to find out why! Why did the devil succeed in deceiving this person with the great anointing that flowed on him and the great operations of God in his life? And then the Lord began to show me the difference between a great anointing and a strong spirit.
The great anointing is a tool that God works with but the strong spirit is your own safety and defence. The greater the anointing you carry on a weak spirit, the more endangered you become. So it is extremely critical for us to get into the daily practices that are our true strength and defence. Everything God does in your life comes through your spirit. A strong spirit will sustain you no matter what the enemy brings against you. A strong spirit will hold you up and will stand you in good stead.
The spirit man is the foundation. As God releases grace and glory and brings us into higher levels, greater dimensions and heavier weight of glory, your spirit must get stronger to be able to sustain and carry that glory safely. Do not try to make up for the absence of daily righteous practices with weekly, monthly or annual practices. Life happens daily and spirituality develops daily. There are great ministers who do occasional 40 days fasting and prayers but then stumble because they have no daily spiritual practice(s). The daily practices are the secret of a strong Christian.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to develop my spirit through daily fellowship with you and in your word. Amen.
