From the Father’s Heart
Psalm 18:28 says, “For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.”
Let God light your candle. Never joke with your intimacy with God. No matter how busy you get, don’t lose your time with Jesus. Intimacy with the Lord is vital to your walking and living in the believer’s experiences in life. Intimacy is personal. Though available, intimacy is self-generated; no one can do it for you; you must do it yourself. It is self-cultivated and deliberate.
Be deliberate about personal worship. Keep intimacy and flee anything that can bring cloudiness around your soul such that no light is coming from God. Iniquity and rebellion bring cloudiness around a man’s soul. Yield to correction and discipline. Yield to the Holy Spirit as He corrects you. The Holy Spirit comes first to correct your wrong and then brings light to your soul. Spiritual communications or divine instructions don’t come to a defiled or rebellious spirit. Keep your time of intimacy with God, which guarantees a baptism of discerning and a mastery of the spirit realm.
Always get involved in activities that increase your intimacy with the LORD:
(1) Pray regularly in the Spirit. Don’t let your mouth be cold; pray in the Holy Ghost!
(2) Create time to study and meditate on God’s word regularly. Regular reading of the Scriptures loads up your spirit, making you ready and strong for battle.
(3) Do daily worship
These activities will birth intimacy in your life, eventually producing accuracy, and ultimately, you will live a life of impact.
Till next time, go and win with Jesus.
