Your giftings, your talents, and the things that you do so well have nothing to do with you. They have to do with the Spirit of God, the power of God, and the gifting of God that He has given you.
Your life can be filled with power only if you are filled with the Holy Spirit.
I know a lot of talented people who have no power because they don't know the Holy Spirit. We always need the Spirit. Therefore, if you want to live outside the enemy's grasp, you must labor diligently and discipline yourself to stay filled with the Spirit.
Imagine that your life is a chair.
That chair only has room for one person to sit in it. And in the Spirit realm, either God can sit in that chair or the devil can. You can’t have both.
There is a fight for position in your life. Jesus said, "You can't serve both. You can't be in the world and in the Kingdom." You always have to make a choice.
Always remember that YOU are the one who makes up your mind.
YOU are the one who decides who will sit enthroned on your life. And the enemy never plays fair, so it takes effort to fight the good fight of faith.
If you want to live outside the grasp of the enemy, you have to work hard to be and stay FILLED with the Holy Spirit. I'm not just talking about a one-time experience, in which you’re filled with the Spirit. I'm talking about a lifestyle of walking in and empowered by the Spirit. That’s a lifestyle in which God is enthroned on the chair of your life, and there is a fight for that position going on right now. There will always be a fight for that position.
You have to be faithful and diligent to let the Holy Spirit rule your life. You have to be faithful and diligent to bear godly fruit. You have to practice submitting to God and resisting the devil.
To live outside the grasp of the enemy, We have to practice at yielding to His Lordship. We must be diligent to obey James 4:10: “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.”
I pray a keeping grace over you right now as you read this.
I believe that your heart and motives are pure, and you’re submitting to God—but that doesn’t necessarily mean that resisting is easy. Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of lights, and He wants to take care of His own. He is going to take care of you and keep you with His keeping grace.
The Lord has a plan in place for your life. He knows from one day to the next exactly how that plan unfolds. Don’t give into the temptation of fear, doubt, and unbelief. Stand strong in faith, and be filled with the Holy Spirit. Labor to make His Word your reality and final authority in everything.
So resist the devil:
• Resist the very thought of failure.
• Resist the very thought of the enemy destroying anything.
• Resist the very thought that you’re going to lose it all or that you can’t be healed.
• Resist the thought that you can’t be successful.
• Submit all those thoughts to the Word of God, which is our final authority—and let the Word expose those things as the lies they are.
You and I are children of God—the Most High God. Overcoming is in our DNA. .
Choose to be different by the power of the Holy Spirit. Live consecrated to God, and you will live outside the enemy’s grasp.
”And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,“
Ephesians 5:18 NKJV
