Life in the Spirit

Scripture
Moreover if the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through his Spirit who lives in you.
Romans 8:11 NET

Observation
Understand that this Scripture is not talking about resurrection. It is talking about the here and now. It is not talking about your eternal or spiritual body, but your mortal body.

Something happens when you ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior. The Holy Spirit comes and makes His home in you. And when He comes, He brings life! Yes, you will have eternal life, but He also gives life to your mortal body.

What happens when God’s Spirit gives you life? Do you think it would look and feel like the life you had without Him? Absolutely not!

Are you experiencing the life the Lord wants you to have? Are you walking in the joy and peace of God?

If not, it might be because you are still holding on, trying to make it all happen on your own.

Trust in the Lord. He loves you more than you possibly could know. Let Him guide you and lead you.

He will never fail you!

Application
Being led by the Spirit is so basic. We make it harder than it should be. Why?

Because we want to jump through hoops. We want to prove our worth to God and man.

God wants you to receive His Holy Spirit and live off of His power and might. How?

Again, this is so basic… Read His Word. Pray. Fellowship with the Saints. Keep yourself in the middle of God’s presence. Listen and obey.

When you start to spend time with Him, and realize His love for you, it builds great trust.

Can you trust him? Are you trusting Him?

Prayer
Lord, my faith falters often. Help me to trust in You, daily, to meet all of my needs, the needs of the Spirit and the needs of the flesh.

Peace
Todd
