Train your spirit to be one with the Father (it’s not magic)
Romans 12:2 – And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Php 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things [but] loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them [but] dung, that I may win Christ,
Php 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
Php 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
Php 3:11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
Php 3:12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Php 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
Php 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Php 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
Php 3:16 Nevertheless, where to we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
Do you ever feel like you haven’t gotten so high spiritually or that you are not “Christian” enough? Well, what does it mean to be totally Christian? Is there a half Christian?
Our Christian growth is not based on our power but it takes a deliberate effort on our end to know God more and more. God is ever ready to manifest through us, he does not give himself in bits, he wants us to know him just like he knows us, and he wants us to walk freely in him. How do we get there? We become Christ-like by knowing him personally, study your bible. God has granted the spirit of wisdom and revelation in his word, spend time with the word. Study to show thyself approved and if the word seems scary, do not give up, pray for his wisdom, the bible was not written to confuse us.
Why do people date and get married? They want to know each other more so they spend time together. Being one with the father is a process. The same way you get to know someone more by speaking to them, speak to the father. The way we build muscles gradually, build up your spirit constantly and do not be too hard on yourself by judging your growth. Remember it’s not based on your power but you just keep training and learning and you would not even know but your spirit grows and you get to the point when the inner-man is beautifully transformed. So not just with a little effort but let’s go all the way in Christ and make it an important priority. Fully submerged. Train your spirit!
#pray-Lord please help me to know you more daily and open the eyes of my understanding to know and see you more.
