I said to you yesterday that the anointing within is the priority of God for us as Christians especially for everyone who will not just fulfill destiny, but also stay strong under God till the very end. This morning by the grace of God, I want to show you how you can develop that strength inside you. Everyone that you see, whether in the Bible or in our contemporary days that walked with the Lord, fulfilled his calling and destiny, and stayed faithful on his course till the end had this strength developed in him.
1. Study of the word of God: Acts 20:32
One of the major means through which God builds our strength is through the word of God. Among many other things that the Word of God will do to you, it will build up your spiritual strength. When I started out in the things of God, the Lord required of me that I must read the Bible four times every year and I did that for over 10 years. That is what has produced what I am today. You must create time for the study of the word of God. That is the primary food of the spirit man.
What physical food is to the natural body is what the word of God is to the spirit man. If you will not do without natural food in a day, it will be unfair to your destiny and spiritual development to go days without study of the Bible. No matter how busy you are, you must find time to study the Bible. If your spirit is starved of the Word of God, its development will be abnormal. It will be weak, ineffective and unable to support you at critical times. Study the Word of God, pray the Word of God upon yourself, confess it upon yourself and declare the prophecies of the Bible upon yourself. As you do that, there is a measure of grace, life and strength that is being deposited into your spirit.
2. Prayer: Jude 20
Prayer is another spiritual activity that will develop and build up your spiritual strength. However, I counsel people very often that they should be men of the Bible before they become men of prayer. If you are not versed in the Bible and you become a man of prayer, the devil will not only give wrong information to you regularly, he will also seek to help you interpret the ones that God is sending into your life. But when you have acquainted yourself with the bible, the principles of the bible which you have known will keep you from any form of error that the devil might want to send into your life.
Of all forms of prayers you will be praying, I will counsel that you take quality time to pray in the Holy Ghost. It is another channel through which God builds up you spirit man. It will strengthen your spirit, build up your spiritual capacity and open you up to the world of the supernatural under God.
PRAYER: Lord, I pray in the name of Jesus that you will help me to give myself continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word of God in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Bible in a year: Genesis 23:1-24:51, Matthew 8:1-17, Psalm 9:13-20, Proverbs 3:1-6
