12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.
13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words….. 16 for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
– 1 Corinthians 2:12,13,16.

The only way you can truly know and live out your purpose in life is with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Why? because the spirit realm controls and supersedes the physical realm.
Jesus said God is Spirit and everyone that worship Him must do so in spirit and in truth. You cannot really worship God without the Spirit. (John 4:23-24)
Man exists in three dimensions;
1. Spirit – the real person created by God. It never dies and will return back to God to give account and face judgment or reward.
2. Soul – the realm of intellect, mind, will, and emotions. It is the transmission between spirit and flesh. it’s like a sponge, it soaks up whatever it is immersed in.
3. Body – the flesh that enables man to live on earth. it is what we see, and feel. our physical state.
At Spiritual Formation, you have a rebirth of the spirit with eternal life when you receive Jesus Christ as Lord and savior. You become reconnected back to the author of life.
The soul and body do not become born again, the spirit does. Your spiritual formation progresses as you renew your soul by feeding on the word of God to reshape and realign your standard and values from the world’s tradition and culture to the kingdom’s (Christ’s).
This is why God has given you the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the governor of heavenly resources. The one that lives in the Father and in Christ that can infuse you with the mind of God, the mind of Christ.
Fulfilling purpose, deploying your gifts, and excelling in life become a struggle and hustle when you don’t follow the Holy Spirit. In fact, your identity as a child of God is at risk because it is only those that are led by the spirit that are sons of God. (Romans 8:14)
In this season, God is releasing great and mighty grace but you will need the mind of Christ to harness them and that is only available with the help of the Holy Spirit.
It’s time to come back to the spirit-led life, that is the only way to achieving purpose goals indeed.
LET US PRAY:
Read 1 Corinthians 2:12-16, Jeremiah 17:7-8, Luke 11:1-13, 1 John 3:1-3
Father God thank you for lavishing me with your love. I am a child of God. I am pure in heart. I am like Jesus on earth. I reflect the glory of God just like Jesus. I delight to do your will.
Father God, I will no longer be a stranger in my Father’s house. I am a son in the father’s house. In Jesus’ Name, I declare I am entitled to the blessings of the covenant.
Father God, I trust in you. I’m unshakable in my trust in you. I declare I am blessed. I’m like a tree planted by the water.
Father turn my situation around. Nourish my life with your heavenly dews and water of life. The water of life is in my life and released into every part of me. My marriage is watered. My mind is watered. My health is watered. My life is watered. I’m daily watered by the Spirit and word of God.
Father, let my root be nourished. Let my root be stable. I’m mentally stable. I’m emotionally stable. My root is stable. My enterprise is stable. My source of income is stable. Like Joseph I remain strong, I’m immovable, unshakeable, and unstoppable. My health is stable. My health is strong. My future is clear. My career works. My children prosper. No decay in my life anymore.
In Jesus’ Name, I declare My life is well irrigated. I’m innovative. I have new insights. In areas I have suffered drought, I blossom. Everything I produce in my life is green, fresh, desirable, refreshing, and lovely. My leaves are green.
I refuse to fail. I’m impervious to failure. I will not fail this year. I’m productive this year. I manifest favorable outcomes. The land is green for me.
Holy Spirit of God, I acknowledge you as God and my helper. I receive your help. I ask for a fresh Infilling. Fill my heart afresh with your presence. Through my gift and purpose, help me to govern the territory the Father has given me.
Help me to understand my purpose and to lay hold of the resources available to me. Help me to be able to deploy all that you have given me. Help me to steward the resources right. Guide me Holy Spirit.
Father by your spirit I receive an understanding of my life purpose. I receive clarity from the Holy Spirit. By the Spirit, I will no longer speak empty carnal words. I make right and accurate decisions as influenced by the Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit from now on lead me into the Father’s purpose for my life. Holy Spirit moves me into the right place of decision-making. Holy Spirit by your working in my life, I have the mind of Christ.
