The strong spirit of a man sustains him in bodily pain or trouble, but a weak and broken spirit who can raise up or bear? Proverbs 18:14 AMPC YES

“A strong spirit as one that is confident, established, unmovable and ready for anything. It is steady under pressure, full of joy and peace and it never quits. It went on to say a strong spirit will get you through anything – physical attacks, financial problems, relational difficulties, career setbacks and whatever else the devil throws at you.”

I believe that this is good news for the Christian to know that it is the strength of their spirit that determines the outcomes they have in life. It is not the external circumstances, it is not the devil, it is not other people’s expectations, but the strength of your spirit, and guess what, you have control and can do something to strengthen your spirit.

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8 (KJV)

The Holy Spirit Pumping on the inside of me! Sometimes I find myself using expressions in my personal time to try to explain what it feels like to be full of Christ and full of His Spirit and one morning as I was thinking about the great and awesome power of God in us, I found myself talking about the Holy Spirit pumping on the inside of me. I sort of think Jesus did the same when he used the illustration of a river flowing out of our belly to explain the power of the Holy Spirit on the inside of us. Jesus said it better in John 7:38 when talking about the Holy Spirit, He said, “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”

For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16 (KJV)

As believers you and I have the mind of Christ, that is the ability through the Holy Spirit to think like Christ and then to conduct our lives according to His mind. One mind is so important in our relationships as over and over again, the Holy Spirit through Paul encourages us to be of the same mind one toward another (Romans 12:16); to be of one mind (2 Cor 13:11); to be likeminded and of one accord, of one mind (Phil. 2:2) and to all be of one mind (1 Peter 3:8). One mind is so important as this enables us to pull together in unity in the same direction which is why I particularly love Romans 15:6 which says, ‘that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify God.’

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. John 14:12 (NKJV)

God is a God of First Times! As you read through the bible you will see some things that when they happened it was the first time ever. When Abraham and Sarah had Isaac, it was the first time such a thing had happened when you consider their ages and the barrenness of Sarah’s womb. When Moses stretched out the rod to part the red sea, it was the first time such a thing had ever happened in history. When the children of Israel received manna from heaven for food, that was definitely the first time. God is a God of first times and He is not limited only to things He has done before in your life or in the life of somebody you know. As long as you have the word of God you can believe God for the extraordinary, the things that are impossible for men, the exceedingly abundantly above and greater works.

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Galatians 3:13-14 (NKJV)

Most people like a good deal! It could be a shopping deal, or a deal involved in negotiating for something big. It does not really matter how small or big the deal is, the sense of knowing you just struck a deal or achieved a good bargain makes us feel good. I am not a bargain hunter, although I like a good deal, but I know people who would wake up early and travel miles just to get a good deal. The joy in their faces and the excitement in their voices about the deal they struck is just awesome to see.

For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 1 Peter 3:10 (KJV)

I was praying the other day and found myself saying, as I sometimes do, that God has given me my tongue to glorify Him and not to speak guile and declaring my commitment to measure my words and use them to glorify God in all circumstances. I knew this was in the bible and that the word guile meant bad, evil and ungodly words. Guile is such an old word that we don’t really use today. It was used only eleven times in the entire old and new testament, so even then, it was a word that was infrequently used, and every time it was used it was associated with the negative, the ungodly and evil. Psalm 34:13 says, Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Guile is another word for deceit, deception, dishonesty and lies. The dictionary defines it as dishonest behaviour that you use to deceive someone.

But you, dear friends, must build up your lives ever more strongly upon the foundation of our holy faith, learning to pray in the power and strength of the Holy Spirit. Jude 1:20

Have you been involved in a building project or made a decision to build some muscles! If you have, you will know that it involves some effort and personal application to achieve it. In the same way God wants us to build our lives ever more strongly on the foundation of our holy faith and he tells us how to do this – by learning to pray in the power and strength of the Holy Spirit.
