Be Transformed

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Timothy chapter 1:

7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

FATHER has given us The Holy Spirit Who has the inherent life-giving, healing power to deal with every situation we find ourselves in.  The Holy Spirit has the fullness of Agape Love and expresses that fullness as we walk according to THE SPIRIT within us.

As we become accustomed to walking according the leading of The Holy Spirit, our minds become transformed and our thinking changes.  Paul also wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 12:

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

As for me, one of the best things to do when confronted with adversity is to keep my mouth shut until The Holy Spirit instructs me what to say.  Otherwise, I might give a soulish reply out of emotion.  FATHER does not remove or eliminate our emotions but wants us to manage those emotions and not allow them to rule over us.  Our mind must be renewed so that it becomes a servant to our spirit rather than the taskmaster over our spirit and our body.

The good and acceptable and perfect will of God is accessible to all for HE has provided not only HIS written Word but also The Holy Spirit WHO communicates FATHER’S perfect Will.  We must not stop at the level of FATHER’S acceptable Will but should move on to walk according to HIS perfect Will.

THE SPIRIT revealed in 2 Corinthians chapter 3:

17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

It is critical that each of us acknowledges the need to change.  This is what transformation is all about.  We are all at a lower level of glory and FATHER wants us to proceed to a higher level of glory.  This is done by submitting ourselves to The Holy Spirit WHO contains all the potential for us walking according to FATHER’S Divine Intent.

Until we tap into the potential of The Holy Spirit Who resides in our “temple”, we will not ascend to a higher level of HIS glory.  FATHER is not withholding HIS glory from us, but our unrenewed minds are the issue.  We are transformed by the renewing of our minds.

FATHER tells us to keep HIS Word at the center of our hearts and this is done by meditating on HIS Word daily.  Part-time believers will never become mature Sons of GOD.  They will only be observers of what FATHER is doing.  I choose not to be in that group.

What is the key to unlocking the power and authority of The Holy Spirit Who resides on the inside of us?  I am fully convinced that we must mature in Agape Love thus our intent aligns with FATHER’S Divine Intent and HE will release the flow of power and the authority to walk in HIS power without exception.  Self interest has place in operating with such power and authority.  FATHER will not allow the enemy any place by giving power to those who are manipulated and soulish in their intent.

John spoke by THE SPIRIT in 3 John:

2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

Our souls can only prosper if we are being led by THE SPIRIT of Truth in Love.  When our souls are prospering, we are not moved by the circumstances surrounding us and neither are we moved by the afflictions we are enduring.  We know FATHER will deliver us out of all our afflictions so we must let patience have its perfect work.  In the meantime, let us focus on the continual renewing of our mind and be led by The Holy Spirit.  Let our walk be a testimony to all those who come in contact with us.
