Our yieldedness to the Holy Spirit can be in four levels based on the Book of Ezekiel. They are:
1. The ankle-deep level
2. The knee-deep level
3. The loins level, and
4. The river experience
A person that is ankle-deep in the water is going to have total control over the Holy Spirit. That kind of water is not going to carry one away. A believer that is ankle-deep in the water of the Holy Ghost is a born-again person and that is all. At this level, when you get born-again, you relate with Jesus only as your Saviour. He has saved you from sin but you have not given Him access to be the One directing your life. Until you make Jesus the ‘Lord’ of your life, you are not safe. When you make Jesus the Lord of your life, you have made the final and last decision of your life.
You cannot start your journey in destiny and life-saving Christianity until you receive Jesus as your Lord. And what this means is, “Lord, this is my final decision. From here on, You take the decision, and I will carry it out.” If you have not done that, Jesus is not your Lord. He may be your Saviour but He is not yet your ‘Lord’.
In such a state, you will make heaven, but you may not enjoy the trip going there because you will have a lot of accidents on the road since you would be the one taking all the decisions for your life.
PRAYER: Thank You Jesus for saving me. I confess You as my Lord. I give You full access to direct all the affairs of my life. Thank You Lord.
