Meditation Thought: “He who is greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. (Matthew 23:11)
The Holy Spirit serves as the vital heart to your spirit – as your body depends upon the flow of blood pumped by your heart, so your spirit depends upon the power generated by the Holy Spirit.
Keep a healthy flow of power by welcoming the Holy Spirit in every area of your life: see, hear, speak the Word. Serve. Love. Reconcile. Forgive. Be gracious. Be kind. Do good. Receive with thanksgiving. Praise with enthusiasm and a glad heart.
Always seek to rest in the Spirit – if you abide in the Spirit, you are in the Spirit’s flow of power, which is infinitely greater than your own power.
Keep a pure heart: all else can be corrected if you misunderstand and misdirect your life – but your pure heart is the vital organ needed to let the Spirit be effective in your life.
Look not at people, at circumstances, at the world; look to the Word and the Spirit, and this compass keeps you on the right path to do the Father’s will and works.
There will be pain – and pleasure; there will be disappointment – and victory. But you never need feel guilty, never need to be downhearted, never need to give up hope: for your strength and your joy lie in serving your Lord and He shall never disappoint you if you trust Him.
Serving – especially when it is not expected – works effectively in spirits and minds, to break up the hardness of hearts that the Holy Spirit may enter. Envision your delight and gratitude to receive – especially unexpected ministerings – that you may more effectively serve others.
Over and over and over, does the Word and the Spirit confirm that with the measure you give, with that measure you shall receive.
And have you not been promised that your life is to be abundant?
Learn how to expand your measure – you do this through the leading of the Spirit according to the word.
All things do work together for good to those who love God, to them who are called according tho His purpose.
