Thought for the day

"Ministering in the spirit is a process. First you consciously hold the things of God in your mind and your heart and build up your spirit self. Then you release your spiritual understanding to others as led by the Holy Spirit. Think about it.
How does God speak to you, audibly or spiritually?
How did God save you? Materially of spiritually?

When God releases His virtue to heal you, (physically, emotionally or spiritually), how is that virtue released, physically or spiritually?
Even with physical healing, God performs it by His Spirit. Everything about God is spiritual. When God moves in a situation to supernaturally intervene, He changes the outcome of the physical universe by His Spirit.

When you hear a truth that sinks down into your soul and something clicks, and your eyes are opened to a truth, where did that eye opening truth come from?  The Spirit of God.

It is the Spirit of God that indwells you that recognizes spiritual things.  That is why, when the Word of God is read or preached you can be stirred or moved - Your spirit agrees with the Spirit of God and you have revealed truth.  How can you agree with what you read in the Word of God or what is preached if you don=t have the Sprit of God within you?

  1. Pastor Keith,

    This is an interesting post. I have a question though. If everything about God is spiritual, what is happening when God does speak audibly in the Bible? When He does save people materially? When He interacts with them in person?

    I'm not saying God isn't Spirit, and that interacting with that aspect of God isn't important, but I don't think that's all God is. If we were made in His image, He must have an image to be made in right? And how does He send His spirit, if He is solely His Spirit?

    I don't think it changes anything you wrote, but it seems like something worth asking about.

    You've got a great blog by the way. I've become a follower.
