Everything that you’ll ever need in this life, in its entirety, is already within your born- again spirit. The author and finisher of your faith lives on the inside of you, in the Person of the Holy Spirit. So the rest of your Christian life is a process of learning how to manifest outwardly what you already possess inwardly.
The only way to experience the power of God and receive the finished works of Jesus Christ is to walk in the spirit. In order to walk in the spirit, you must believe something exists that you have no proof or physical evidence of whatsoever! The only evidence you have in the physical realm is the Word of God. God’s Word is spiritual. And the root to all physical things is in the spiritual realm. The Scriptures tell us that things that are seen are temporal—subject to change. But things that are not seen are eternal.
“Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting” (2 Corinthians 4:18, AMP).
So in order to stay fixed in the spirit, you have to stay fixed on God’s Word. God’s Word
is what makes you spiritual. God’s will is that you live a spirit-led versus a driven life. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” How do you live a spirit-led life? By trusting in the leading of your unseen Partner, the Holy Spirit.
You have to begin to acknowledge the Holy Spirit’s presence in your life. You have to admit that the Holy Spirit exists, that He is real, and that He is true. Jesus told us that God would send us a Comforter, a Helper, Who would teach us all things and remain with us forever (John 14:16, 26, AMP). The day you became born-again, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise (Ephesians 1:13).
When you begin to acknowledge the Holy Spirit’s presence, He will direct your path
right to healing, deliverance, prosperity—whatever you need in life. He will give you inside information. The Holy Spirit knows how to lead and guide you beyond what you can comprehend with your physical mind.
The Holy Spirit will also protect you from hurt, pain, and unnecessary suffering if you’ll begin to listen to and trust Him. He won’t always tell you “why” you shouldn’t move in a particular situation. He might simply say, “Don’t do that” or “Don’t go over there.” If you don’t have peace about something you’re about to do or get involved in, don’t do it! God wants you to trust Him simply because He knows more than you do. He’s all-knowing!
God wants to turn your dreams into reality. So become satisfied with a day-to-day communing with your unseen Partner—the Holy Spirit. The way to hear from Him is with an open Bible and a prayerful spirit. Spend time with Him. Acknowledge Him. Talk to Him about anything and everything. Allow Him to speak and reveal things to you. If there’s ever been a time when we need the guidance of the Holy Spirit, it’s in this day and age that we live in now. He knows where the path is for your life. Give Him the opportunity to become your unseen Partner and escort you through this life. He’s as real as every situation and circumstance that you’re dealing with. So, no matter what you’re facing today, lean on, rely upon, and trust in the Holy Spirit. You will emerge victorious because “greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
There’s nothing more vital in the life of a born-again Believer than total reliance upon the Holy Spirit. He’s your unseen Partner. He’s the One Who will lead, guide, and order your steps into God’s preordained destiny for your life.
