What do we need to manifest the fullness of God’s abundance?
15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power…
Paul offered a prayer that includes the ingredients for success in our walk with God in the above scripture in Ephesians 1.
We all need a fresh and unadulterated wave of revelation for a refreshing time with God. When wisdom is combined with revelation, they form a weapon of war that thwarts the devil’s plots against our lives. Revelation means unveiling that which was hidden. It means to remove the cover.
2. THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
It’s written in Ephesians 1: 13-15 ‘In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory.
The Holy Spirit lives in you to teach you all that you need to know, but if you do not constantly reach to Him within you, you may not enjoy the benefits that He has to offer. How could you have Him and not have it all?
Also, in 1 Corinthians 2: 12-13, it reads, ‘Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.’
This outrightly tells us that one of the reasons we received the Holy Ghost is for Him to help us manifest all that the Father has made available to us. So, without the Holy Ghost, it’s impossible to spiritually discern not to talk of operate in what is ours.
3. CASTING DOWN – Whatever you could have grown with, does not need to keep on with you if it is not of God. If it is stubborn, you have the authority to cast it down. Remember, old things are passed away, so you need to get rid of everything that will try to forcefully remain with you with the intention of pulling you back. 2Corinthians 10:3-6, ‘For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.’
Nothing can stand against the weapons that God has endowed us with if we know how and use them properly. A renewal of the mind to accommodate the thoughts of God is also a key to pulling down strongholds so as to enter into your manifestation of God’s superabundant provision for you.
Romans 12:1-2, ‘I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 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.’
A mind that is unregenerated would not be conducive for the Holy Ghost, therefore, even though it is saved, it will not prosper.
The Bible declares that he that the Son has set free is free indeed. Release yourself from any fastening or attachment because Jesus has already set you free. Reposition yourself for a higher life and let the wings of the Spirit take you into your immeasurable inheritance. If you are ready, God is ready! Your salvation is total. Whatever you need is in it! Find it out! Live out your real life!
