How To Know That The Spirit of God Dwells in Someone

Monday, 2019-03-18

Bible Reference: 1 John 4:2–3
Translation: The Message (MSG)

Bible Text: Here’s how you test for the genuine Spirit of God. Everyone who confesses openly his faith in Jesus Christ—the Son of God, who came as an actual flesh-and-blood person—comes from God and belongs to God. And everyone who refuses to confess faith in Jesus has nothing in common with God.

OBSERVATION: Ever been questioned, or have you ever questioned  whether a Brother is genuine, or a Sister sincere in her faith and teaching? I was in awe this morning as I read the Word, for John, gives us pointers about this very matter.

APPLICATION: Not only will this help us identify the Spirit of God in others, but I believe this also helps us to examine ourselves and the kind of witness we portray to others. Some of the key points we are to consider and/or portray to determine, or prove, the genuine Spirit of God are: (1) Confesses openly about his/her/my faith in Jesus Christ; (2) Acknowledges that Jesus is the genuine, only Son of God; (3) Believes and declares that Jesus came to this earth in human form; (4) Believes that Jesus Comes from God; Belongs to God; And, as verified in other scriptures, He is also God. Friends, we are well aware of the awful feelings we have when we discover that we’ve been given a fake check, or a fake currency note, or perhaps encounter a person claiming to be someone they truly are not. The latter is comparable to us bringing damnation on ourselves when we claim to be a messenger, or witness, or representation of God, without having a first-hand experience with His Son Jesus. Friends, others will see straight through our fake-ness. Our Christianity is evidenced on the outside from a heart experience on the inside. Have you given Your heart to Jesus? Has He been allowed to control Your innermost emotions, convictions and decisions? Have you invited Jesus to take charge and to speak and work through you wholeheartedly? Can others see and feel the Spirit of God working in and through you on the outside and confirm the points suggested by John? Will they know you are a child of the King, or do you need to tell them? Will you commit to speak to God about this? He deserves genuine believers, because He showed His genuine love for us on Calvary in that He offered Himself, in obedience to His Father, to be a sacrifice for those who despised and hated Him. He showed real, genuine, love beyond anything mankind has ever experienced. He loved us with wide, outstretched arms! Do you love and appreciate my Lord enough today to be bold in your witness and tell others of His great love, even if you are certain that they will make a mockery of you? Will they recognize the spirit of God residing inside of you?

PRAYER: Dear God, I am amazed at the genuine love shown for me on Calvary’s cross. You were born into this world, lived among men and in spite of Your love for them, they crucified You. This is the unfortunate evidence of Your human experience here on earth. Thank You for continuing to accept humans into Your kingdom, and I especially thank You for accepting me. Please forgive us when we allow our peers to distract our walk with You. Lord, I am seeking Your help to make me more like You in every way while here on earth, so that others will not be distracted by a sense of false identity. I desire for them to see the hands and feet of Jesus, so that they may be drawn to You oh Lord. Please deal deeply in the hearts of those who will meditate on this devotional today, so that we might not only know You as Lord and Savior, but that we may follow Your example in everything we say and do. To God be the glory, for all that our surrendered, and fully dedicated lives might yield for the Kingdom of God. AMEN!

Prayer and Healing

SCRIPTURE  FROM:   James 5:16-18 (TLB)

TEXT:  16 Admit your faults to one another and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous man has great power and wonderful results. 17 Elijah was as completely human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for the next three and a half years! 18 Then he prayed again, this time that it would rain, and down it poured, and the grass turned green and the gardens began to grow again.

OBSERVATION:   Through first hand experiences and through the faith that he had developed in his Master, James shares with us about the awesome power of God. This starts with us humbling ourselves, before praying earnestly for the needs at hand. So I believe that we need to rehearse in our minds and hearts the need for healing that exists in our individual lives, as well as those we love and hold dear to us. The ones we really want to ask God for. Then as we endeavor to follow the words of James in these verses, let’s look for the power of God, and be prepared to celebrate the results.  

APPLICATION:   Numerous inventors have become famous, because they discovered a remedy, or solution, for one of earth’s nagging problems, and they found a great way to market that solution to many folk who were impacted by the nagging problem. My purpose in sharing through this blog today, is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, and to remind you of what He could do for you, and for me. At our midweek service last night, we heard about an accountability partner that one of our pastors have with a good friend in the Lord. I believe the purpose for something like that might be exactly like James is suggesting to us in verse 15. Think about it friends, when we admit our faults to one another, we are humbling ourselves and acknowledging that we are not the ‘Perfect One’, and that we still mess up on a regular basis. Not only does this empty us of pride, but it also leaves us bare before the Lord, so that He may fill us with His love, His grace, His mercy and His awesome power, so that our faith in Him may be renewed and supercharged. In fact, as we present ourselves bare before God, guess who is the only one who could then receive praise for the healing that might occur in our bodies, or the answered prayers that we may witness? The other encouraging thing about this Scripture, is that James shows us how important it is for us to reflect on God’s power that we had already experienced through our earlier prayers, or perhaps by other saints, or even by prophets of old. I believe we are reminded that if we are faithful to God, He would be faithful to us, just as He has already done for countless others already. So it’s like facing a friend who you are trying to convince about God’s power, you might say to them “show God your humbleness, empty yourself of all pride, ask Him in faith, and stand by for the answer to prayer that you will receive – yes, even to healing that can only come from God”. Friends, this is not the way we do things in school, at work, or perhaps even at church, but according to God’s Word, this is the way we do it when asking our God for His touch in our circumstances. We are looking for a miracle from God, so we must do things His way to receive His results!

PRAYER:   Lord, thank You for the reminder of how awesome our God is. Thank You for reminding us of the need to get self out of the way, so that God might perform His mighty deeds in our lives. Please touch our lives today. Please teach us humbless of heart, so that we can faithfully look up to You without anything to brag on, but fully dependent on You. You are our Rock, our Creator, our Redeemer, our Healer and our soon coming King! We are eternally thankful and look up to You in faith and love for Your perfect touch on our lives. Thank You Lord! AMEN!

Faith-Like Actions

SCRIPTURE  FROM:   Hebrews 11:27-29 (VOICE)

TEXT:  27 By faith Moses left Egypt, unafraid of Pharaoh’s wrath and moving forward as though he could see the invisible God. 28 Through faith, he instituted the Passover and the sprinkling of blood on the doorposts among the Hebrews so that the destroyer of the firstborn would pass over their homes without harming them. 29 By faith the people crossed through the Red Sea as if they were walking on dry land, although the pursuing Egyptian soldiers were drowned when they tried to follow.

OBSERVATION:   Our Scripture today comes from a chapter often referred to as the ‘Faith’ chapter, or about our ancestors from the ‘Faith Hall of Fame’. You and I tell our story every day, and those close to us probably have a lot to say about our qualities, our beliefs, our stubbornness, our points of persistence, and hopefully they could tell the world about our ‘faith’. This will be evident to them through our words, our actions, our strong beliefs and our persistence about things that may make no sense to anyone else at the time, other than God and us. I wonder what would be said about us? Is there evidence of faith, or not?

APPLICATION:   At a very early age we are taught about faith. Remember the time when dad stood you on a wall and then held his arms out for you to jump into? You showed faith in his ability to catch you, and his strength to not let you fall. Some of you attended church and was taught about Jesus. You believed at a very early age that Jesus loved you and considered you as His very own son or daughter. Your mother was seriously ill at one time, and you remember seeing the church leaders praying over her for healing, and you remember seeing those prayers answered. Never having seen Jesus in person, you exercised your faith to believe that He responded in the above scenarios. So in reading this Scripture today, you could share with others that although this Scripture tells about the faith of our ancestors, you also have personal experiences where you saw God at work! Friends, please notice how Moses showed his faith to hundreds of thousands as he obeyed God and led the Israelites out of Egypt, knowing full well how strong and mean the king was, and how he could have easily caught and destroyed many of the Israelites. Notice how the Israelites had a choice to make when they approached the Red Sea crossing and saw it flooded with water at one moment, then dried up the next. My wish for believers is that you and I will not only exercise our faith in God, but that our actions will encourage others to know what our God truly is capable of. Something that would cause the heads of unbelievers to turn from disbelief, to a heart of acceptance and appreciation for their Maker, Designer, Savior and Everlasting King of Glory. 

PRAYER:   Lord God, thank You for showing Your power to even us. Thank You for forgiveness of sin, and for accepting us as Your children. Thank You for the faith You have embedded into us, and the desire to please You in every way. Please continue to encourage us to surrender to self every day and to look constantly for ways to become closer aligned with You and Your perfect will for our lives. I believe this especially includes exercising our faith in You, so make us strong in this respect oh God, I pray. AMEN!

A Rewarding Faith

SCRIPTURE  FROM:   Hebrews 11:6 (TPT)

TEXT:  And without faith living within us it would be impossible to please God.[e] For we come to God in faith[f] knowing that he is real and that he rewards the faith of those who give all their passion and strength into seeking him

OBSERVATION:   It is obvious through the list of faith warriors mentioned in this chapter that their faith in God was rewarded in many wonderful and miraculous ways. Wouldn’t it be a great witness for the believer today, who might say to a friend that a miracle occurred in their life, because of their faith in God? Nothing to say lightly, but if you are convinced that it was your faith in God that took you to Him, and it was only because of His touch that you witnessed a miracle in your life, then I feel like it would be quite an experience to especially share with the one who might doubt the existence of God.

APPLICATION:   Ever noticed how exciting it is to someone when their baseball team is playing, or even more so when that team wins? They are ready to tell the world, or at least anyone that will give them three minutes to listen to them! Notice also that they have no problem in telling anyone – even those who might hate baseball, or who might be opposed to the millions of dollars that the players earn! Be sure to also notice how they know the team members so well, that they are willing to bet about how good they will play, or how badly they will beat their opponents they are about to play! Please know that I have nothing against baseball, or the fans that are so faithful to the game, but I want to use that scenario in comparison to a friend who has been touched by God, or who knows the power of God, as evidenced through answered prayer. You see, our Scripture today reminds us that it is a matter of ‘faith’ for us to believe in God, because we have never seen Him in human form. However, we know that God is alive and that He works in and through the lives of those who believe in Him, for they have ‘faith’ to believe that He exists. But meditate for just a minute on the last part of this verse, for the Scripture reminds us that God rewards the one whose passion and strength is devoted to seeking and following Christ. Friends, I believe that others around you will know it, if your passion is to follow Christ, for all they will hear about from you is Christ. I also believe that if you shared with me about the source of your strength to overcome life’s challenges; deal with disappointments; feeling totally loved at times when others feel so alone and abandoned; you will truly get my attention. Why then do we fail so miserably at this? Could it be that we are ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ? Could it be that we are afraid of being condemned by our friends who may not feel the same way that we do? What’s the difference between sharing a personal experience like your relationship with the King of all kings, and in sharing about a baseball team that you have never seen, or shared an experience with? Are we involved enough with God to be rewarded for our faith? I believe that God is waiting for us to truly know and experience Him. I believe that through that experience we will learn to trust Him fully, and that our faith in Him will become richer and fuller. In this chapter of Hebrews, we are all encouraged by the faith seen in our ancestors, and it draws us to a deeper faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Oh that others will look at us, and to our degree of faith, and be blessed, encouraged and drawn closer to a deeper faith in their Savior! For the believer reading this devotional today, may it be evident to others where our passion is!

PRAYER:   Dearest Lord Jesus, please touch the hearts of those that claim You as Lord and Savior. May we develop a deep passion for You in character, commitment, love for others, service, faith and witness. Lord, may others be drawn to You as a result of our passion, and Your holy presence in our lives. AMEN!

Believe You have Received

SCRIPTURE  FROM:   Mark 11:22-24 (TPT)

TEXT:  22 Jesus replied, “Let the faith of God be in you! 23 Listen to the truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great faith and having no doubt, ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’ and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done. 24 This is the reason I urge you to boldly believe for whatever you ask for in prayer—believe that you have received it and it will be yours

OBSERVATION:   We’ve heard the old gospel song ‘Faith is The Key to Heaven’, and it melts our hearts away. But in today’s verses we hear from the mouth of Jesus the convincing and compelling words that Faith is also the Key to answered prayer. Do we really go into prayer with that kind of confidence? Let’s meditate in this for a little today…. 

APPLICATION:   While a child is putting on his sneakers, he is also screaming out to mom in the kitchen that Mike, who lives just down the road, invited me over to play for a few minutes. I’ve finished my homework & chores, so is it OK if I go and play a little? I will be back in time for the family dinner. The son, Jim, knows all the things that mom will ask him, so he includes everything while asking, or is it telling!!!! So let’s put this into perspective with our relationship with our heavenly Father. Are we in His Word enough? Are we trying to grow our relationship by attending church and/or Bible study? Do we feel like we know the mind of Christ and are asking in full alignment with His desire for our lives? I believe it is obvious why we don’t ask for certain things – it may make us too proud, or it may point our friends attention to us instead of God, etc. But do we know the mind of Christ like a husband may know the mind of His wife of 30 years? Our verses end with the words ‘… believe that you have received it, and it will be yours…’ I once had an old saint tell me that she was praying for an aching arm of mine. In about a week, while entering the church, she looked up at me and asked very confidently, “is that arm better now?” When I said that it wasn’t fully healed yet, she looked at me in puzzlement, as if wondering what must have gone wrong in her prayers for me. Friends, that’s the kind of relationship we need with Jesus. That’s the kind of faith and assurance we can then have in our prayers. Believe that we HAVE RECEIVED IT, and then WE WILL RECEIVE IT!

PRAYER:   Lord You are so good to us! Wretched sinners, yet You look down on us in love and listen to all the things that we worry about and ask for. Most of all, You meet us where we’re at when we come to you in prayer with all of our concerns and complaints. Being reminded of what You promised in Mark 11 today, we could only say again how thankful we are to be called Your precious children, and for the liberties that You give us as children of the King! Please forgive us when we become worried and bring menial things to You, for Lord they seem huge to us. Please work with us, continue to love us, make us more bold to come before You than ever before. Please help us to be so confident in our prayers when we know the mind of Christ and all that You have in store for us. Lord, we ask all this in the precious name of Jesus, our Lord and perfect Savior, AMEN!

Who Controls Your Thinking?

SCRIPTURE  FROM:   Romans 8:6-8 (ERV)

TEXT:  If your thinking is controlled by your sinful self, there is spiritual death. But if your thinking is controlled by the Spirit, there is life and peace. Why is this true? Because anyone whose thinking is controlled by their sinful self is against God. They refuse to obey God’s law. And really they are not able to obey it. Those who are ruled by their sinful selves cannot please God.

OBSERVATION:   Paul taught the church how they could know who their minds are controlled by, and that the determination of that will help them understand what their eternity will look like. This is still true today, so I wanted us to look closely into this and be reminded what our consequences could be.

APPLICATION:   It seems like in today’s society, Paul might be labeled a psychologist, because of him evaluating what is going on in the mind! However, it is quite simple, for we were already told that God not only knows what we say and do, but also what we think. So with that in mind, let’s look at the two types of people we will come across, or that we will fit into:

  1. Minds ‘controlled by your sinful self’ – Paul warned the church, and he is warning us, that those who are stuck on doing everything that self desires and dictates, and who wants nothing to do with Christ, will wind up in spiritual death (eternity in Hell). However,
  2. Some are controlled by the Spirit – and we know this to be the case when we have surrendered our hearts to the Lord Jesus Christ, for He promised us that when we do, His Holy Spirit will come and reside inside of us. And for those whose minds are controlled by the Spirit, there is life (meaning life eternally in heaven with God) and peace (meaning peace with self and with God, because you belong to Him).

So each of us can determine who controls our minds, and each of us meditating on this devotional can evaluate what our destiny looks like. Are you pleased with yours? If not, and if you desire a prayer partner to help you deal with issues that might challenge you to change, please consult with your home church pastor, or drop me a note and I will be honored to pray with you.

PRAYER:   Lord Jesus, with a heart of thanksgiving, especially after being reminded this past weekend of all that You did for us on Calvary, we want to thank You for providing the means for us to live at peace here on earth, knowing that for those who’s mind is fixed on You, our day of celebration is just around the corner, as we see You face to face. Thank You Lord Jesus for being so good to us. May we be found faithful, is my humble plea! AMEN!

It Takes Faith!

SCRIPTURE  FROM:   Hebrews 11:6-7 (ERV)

TEXT:  Without faith no one can please God. Whoever comes to God must believe that he is real and that he rewards those who sincerely try to find him.

Noah was warned by God about things that he could not yet see. But he had faith and respect for God, so he built a large boat to save his family. With his faith, Noah showed that the world was wrong. And he became one of those who are made right with God through faith.

OBSERVATION:   In this chapter of Hebrews we see where faith in God brought new life, new concepts and new miracles to all who believed in Him. In the example shown in verse 7, Noah had faith to believe God that He would send something to the earth for the very first time – ‘rain’. In fact he went further by believing that God would send so much rain that the whole earth would be flooded, so he set out to build a boat to protect the lives of he and his family. Soon God wanted Noah to build that boat much bigger to also include two of every living species. Can you imagine the mockery that Noah experienced during this construction? Yet his faith remained strong! How’s your faith?

APPLICATION:   There are many that God has sent us to minister to, who will tell us that we must be nuts to believe that Jesus died, and actually arose from the dead. Yet they will ask us to pray when their loved one is sick or possibly dying. What kind of faith are they expressing in each of those cases? In some home countries of my readers, non-believing leaders have closed the door to prayer in our schools, yet for the next exam they encourage their kids to pray hard for good grades!! Faith – what is it to some folk? They will say they have no faith in God, because they can’t see Him. Yet they fill their gas tanks in their cars, and although they never see the gas or the tank, some gauge inside tells them how much is in their tank, and they have faith to believe that! Friends, God has proven Himself in many ways to us in 2017, and for those who will trust Him, because they have faith in His existence; His promises; and His all powerful hand; we can look forward to all that He will have in store for us in 2018. Faith means that things are not necessarily all planned ahead for us, although God has the foreknowledge and power to do that, but as we place our faith and trust in the One who loved us enough to sacrifice His life for us, and as we place our faith in the One who promised to never leave us alone, and faith in the One who promised that He has prepared a place for us, so that we may rule and reign with Him while worshiping our blessed Lord, then we will know that 2018 will be filled with anticipation of all that God has in store for us, to bless us, to love on us, and to provide encouragement for us to continue living for Him until He returns to take us home! Praise the wonderful name of Jesus!

PRAYER:   Lord Jesus, we have no reason to doubt Your love and Your almighty power towards Your children. Knowing that You can do ALL things, just as you have already proven to us, gives us faith to place our full trust in You. Please help our unbelief and touch the lives of those that have chosen to ignore the mighty works of our King. Lord, I’m sure that we will need you more in 2018 than we’ve ever need You before. Please help us to stay strong in our faith, and to always stay connected to You in everything. You are a awesome God – one that we can place full faith, trust and deliverance in. AMEN!
