MFM MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR SEPTEMBER 22, 2022 (WALK IN THE SPIRIT)
TOPIC: WALK IN THE SPIRIT
Fire Scripture: Romans 8: 1-16
Galatians 5:16 – “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”
A life without the Holy Spirit is heading towards destruction.
I decree upon your life that you shall win the battle of the flesh, in the name of Jesus.
The most important encounter in the life of a believer is the encounter with the Holy Spirit. The disciples walked with Jesus for about three years but it was not sufficient for the task ahead of them. Jesus told them that after He had gone, they would need to wait for the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
John the Baptist cried out in Matthew 3:11, “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire.” Even in the book of Acts, Apostle Paul met certain Christians and asked them if they had received the Holy Ghost since they believed.
It is a requirement for every believer. One of the significant signs in the life of a true believer is the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does the work of transformation. The Holy Spirit empowers us to be like Christ and to manifest the power of Christ. The Holy Spirit comforts the believer and strengthens him in times of persecution and trials.
The Holy Spirit builds our character to bear the fruit of the Spirit. This work of the Holy Spirit was first described in Genesis 1: 2-3 “…And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” God would never carry out any operation without His Spirit. It is therefore a tragedy to call yourself a Christian without the power of the Holy Spirit in you.
Many Christians ignore the place of the Holy Spirit; they stop at accepting Jesus and as such there is no spiritual growth. The world is full of so many carnal and baby Christians. Some know that there is a Holy Spirit but they have denied Him access into their lives. In John 3:5, “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”
Jesus made it clear that without the Holy Spirit, you cannot make heaven, because it is the Holy Spirit that produces the kind of life that can make heaven.
1. Heavens over my life, open by fire, in the name of Jesus.
2. Lord Jesus, baptise me with the Holy Ghost and fire, in the name of Jesus.
3. Holy Ghost, break every satanic barrier in my foundation hindering Your move in my life, in the name of Jesus.
4. Every ancestral gate of my father’s house limiting my spiritual growth, earthquake of God, uproot it now, in the name of Jesus.
5. Powers of darkness frustrating and tormenting my soul, die, in the name of Jesus.
6. Holy Spirit, beautify the garden of my life, in the name of Jesus.
7. Holy Ghost, take over my body and occupy it now, in the name of Jesus.
