TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Live this day aware of My life in you. That you are My child, righteous, loved and acceptable in My sight. Not because you feel that way about yourself, but because that is who I say you are.
BY FAITH OR BY SIGHT?
Are you aware of what the Spirit is doing in your life? We can be so aware of politics or the new TV shows coming out, but totally clueless about what the Spirit is doing in our lives.
Sometimes, I’ll be praying and all of a sudden I’ll get a terrible pain somewhere in my body. Before I go blaming the devil, I ask the Lord what’s going on. Many times, the Holy Spirit will reveal to me that while He wasn’t orchestrating that pain, He’ll use it to slap the devil in the face by using me to pray and declare healing over someone with a pain in that area.
“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.” – Roman 8:5
Let’s unpack this verse. If we are choosing to live with our minds set on the flesh, what does that mean? The flesh involves our five senses: what we see, touch, hear, smell and taste. We can take things at face value or ask the Spirit to reveal God’s perspective to us.
Setting our minds on the Spirit means we turn and seek what God has to say about the situation. That means we value His word above what we see or think is going on. The flesh says something is humanly impossible. The Spirit proclaims all things are possible to those who believe God. Oh, I love that!
We choose each day what we will be aware of. We can choose to be overwhelmed by the circumstances we are in or be overwhelmed by the Holy Spirit’s presence and power in our lives to overcome. You can live by faith or by sight. It’s your choice.
“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.” – 2 Corinthians 3:18
