DAILY DEVOTIONAL: JESUS KIND OF SPIRIT.
Memorise: But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Romans 8:11 KJV
Read: Romans 8:11-14 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
Jesus is our perfect example for godly living. You are his image on the earth and truly His ambassador if you will operate by his Spirit in accordance with the word of the Lord. Jesus is your role model and it’s therefore expedient that you pray to have his kind of spirit so as to operate faithfully and without impedance on the earth. His power flows by the force of the Holy Spirit.
The Spirit of the Lord is a quickening Spirit. He can never allow you to remain in your dead position but raise you up to become a force on the earth. That was exactly what happened to Jesus. You must be daily loaded with His word and remain effective in prayers to gain His kind of Spirit. Ezekiel said, And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me. Ezekiel 2:2 KJV. If you will allow the word of the Lord to get into your system and life, you will gain the power of the Holy Spirit and be equipped to rise above all forms of limitation. The power of the grave couldn’t hold Jesus down because of the quickening force within and around Him. He was raised back to life by the Spirit of the Lord. So shall it be unto you from this moment. The Spirit of the Lord will raise you up a conqueror and put to shame every element of this word that has been positioned to silence grace out of your life. You are rising to stardom from today and it shall be well with you.
Pray with me: Father, please raise me up by your Spirit. Quicken me by your anointing and make me unstoppable in the race of life.
