1 John 4:7-11
1 Thessalonians 5:17 - Pray without ceasing.
The spiritual person loves to pray. He prays over everything; always seeking the face of God, walking up and down in deep meditation and prayer. Something is always welling up in him to pray. He is always stirred to pray to God for something, to commune with God, and to intercede for others. The spiritual man understands that he cannot operate by his own wisdom; he always needs God’s leading and guidance. He knows that every matter needs to be handed over to God to make a success of it.
He does not take chances. In everything (whether big or small), he desires that God will pilot the affairs of his life. Whether moving into a new home, changing a job, want to marry, or concerning the ministry, he is always communing with God in prayer to lead, guide, and to secure his life. He knows that God is the vine, he is a branch of the Vine, and without Him; he can do nothing. So, he is always seeking to know the mind of God concerning all issues of his life.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 -
4. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5.Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6. Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7.Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
The spiritual man is also a man of love. He will love you and do you good. He is a man given to loving people and never hurting them. What offence would you commit against such a man that will make him to fight back or speak evil words? Nothing! He is not quick to anger neither is he the unforgiving type.
He does not gossip or look down on others. His spirit is already equipped and able to resist the devil under any circumstance. All arrows shot by Satan will bounce back automatically. He does not need to pray back-to-sender prayers. Don’t try the spiritual man otherwise you will be digging your grave.
Thought for the day:
Take every matter to God in prayer.
Song for the day:
Prayer is the key … Prayer is the master key….
Bible reading for the day:
Isaiah 4-6; Galatians 3
