Today: God has much more, for you and for me!
14 I have heard that the spirit of the gods is in you and that you have insight, intelligence and outstanding wisdom. (Daniel 5, NIV)-emphasis added
9 As Saul turned to leave Samuel, God changed Saul’s heart, and all these signs were fulfilled that day. 10 When he and his servant arrived at Gibeah, a procession of prophets met him; the Spirit of God came powerfully upon him, and he joined in their prophesying. 11 When all those who had formerly known him saw him prophesying with the prophets, they asked each other, “What is this that has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?”(1 Samuel 10, NIV) -emphasis added
When the spirit of God is in a person or upon a person, others notice it
We don’t need to tell others: “I have the spirit of God and so many gifts in me”.
The spirit of God can come only with a heart-change!
The Holy Spirit did not just start working in the new testament times
King Belshazzar called upon Daniel to read the writing on the wall
King is supposed to be the all-in all. But there came a situation which the king could not handle! Daniel was needed there
Today, many supposed to be Daniels go after the “kings” and look for their support. Instead, if they went to God and received the things God wanted to give, these very “kings” would call them!
God is above kings, physicians, lawyers, judges and anyone you could name
The word of God is powerful than anything else. It speaks the truth about the past, present and the future. That cannot be found in any government books
We need a good relationship with God and a good knowledge of the word
When Saul was selected to do the administration for Israel, he did not get any formal training.Instead, God put His spirit upon him
When we have the spirit of God upon us, it helps us in all areas! I can tell that from experience
Saul was willing and submissive at that time. God had changed his heart
The reason why we miss many things from God is because of our view/prejudice. If we are willing to change, God is willing to give. If we say it is not for me, God is not going to force it on us. There are many others who will get it
When we let the spirit of God override our natural wisdom, divine wisdom will operate. It is not easy, and it takes much humility
People need the working of the Holy Spirit. God needs people who will allow to be channels for God. There are always people available in the physical world to do jobs there. The need/shortage is in the spiritual world
May God use you for His greater glory as you say “yes” to Him
Have a blessed day!
Prayer: Father, I thank you for all your gifts. Help me to get the most word, which is Jesus, and the Holy Spirit so that I can be effective for you, in life and ministry. The world around me needs it, as I need it. In Jesus’ name, Amen
When the spirit of God and the word combine, the outcome is unmatched!
