Today’s message from Dereck – Portals into the presence of God
Our conscious minds are like computer screens with a bunch of icons on it. When you think about something it’s like an icon that you tap to go into the programme. The programme that’s in you is the one that you allowed in you based on your thinking. If you don’t have self-control these icons just keep popping open and we end up messed up. It boils down to your soul choosing whether you will operate in the Spirit or in the natural. We are natural beings that have the potential for supernatural connections because of our spirit. 1 Corinthians 2:14 “The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.” – You will not understand the things of God if you’re operating in the flesh. You’ve got to proactively and deliberately do something. Sin, missing the mark, not loving God and your neighbour – separates us from God. If you don’t love somebody and have a heart to connect with them, they’re not going to receive what you say. Isiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.
You can only connect with God in spirit because He is Spirit and you can only connect with Him in truth because He is the Spirit of truth. 1 Corinthians 2:11-12 “For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same was no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 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.” You decide in your mind what you are going to think. The war’s in your mind. The mind is where we choose to think – where we choose to open an icon, a link to go into. The mind’s an area of thought that connects to your heart.
Over 40 different people under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit wrote the Bible. Open the link to the Word of God and let it guide your life. Consciously choose to connect your spirit to the Holy living Spirit of God. Have an intimate relationship with God and let Him plant His incorruptible seed in you that will give birth to new things in your life.
John 16:13 “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes He will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on His own; He will speak only what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come.” All you have to do is to invite the Spirit of God to come and dwell inside you. Romans 8:16 – the Spirit of God bears witness with our spirits that we are the children of God. You choose to open the links that guide you into any supernatural path you travel. Choose to open the link to travel the path with God.
