Living By Faith


O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee… To see they power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. (Psalm 63:1-2)


“The Holy Spirit will reveal to you every conceivable good that God has for you!” – Mark Hankins


God wants to reveal Himself to us; He is just waiting for us to ask Him to do so.  Moses asked God in Exodus 33, “Show me Your glory.” God revealed His glory, the revelation of His name, and His goodness to Moses. David also asked God to reveal His power and glory in Psalm 63.

The glory refers to God’s manifested presence. The Hebrew word for glory is chabod. Chabod means wealth, numbers, commerce, power, wisdom, promotion, superiority, dignity, authority, nobility, splendor, valor, magnificence, extraordinary privileges, and advantages. One of the meanings of chabod or glory is loaded or heavy with every conceivable good!

When we finally get the revelation of our place in Christ, we can be confident of what will happen next; the glory—the unlimited goodness of God– comes!


Confession: I am confident that as the Holy Spirit shows me the reality of my redemption, He will reveal every conceivable good that God has for me! Holy Spirit, show me your glory!

I am crucified with Christ:  nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:  and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)


“The Holy Spirit is the head of God’s revelation department.” – Mark Hankins


People who are crucified do not survive. You cannot get into Christ and remain unchanged. You can go to church and not be changed much, but if any man be in Christ, there is radical change! Old things are passed away and everything is new. God took you to the cross with Christ, but He also raised you up with Christ in His resurrection!

When God finished with you, you were made alive in Christ. He made you a whole new creation; you became a new kind of creature that never existed before because Jesus did something that had never been done before!

Jesus brought God and man back together.  When you get born again, you look like a man, but you are no longer just a man. When you are walking, God is walking because God lives in you. Paul said, “It looks like me, but it’s Christ, the Messiah!  The Anointed One lives in me!”


Confession: Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations…Christ in you, the hope of glory.  (Colossians 1:26-27)

I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. (Matthew 11:25)


“The Holy Spirit can reveal and transmit our new identity to us through the spirit of wisdom and revelation.” – Mark Hankins


The devil will try to out bluff us and make us fold, quit, and give up when there is really a tremendous reward on the table. We must understand our identification with Christ and who we are in Christ and realize that we are holding the better hand.  God gave us the cards and we win! The moment you get the spirit of wisdom and revelation — Boom! You can tell the devil, “You can’t whip me!”

You cannot understand what God has done for you in Christ without the help of the Holy Spirit, without the spirit of wisdom and revelation. David Yonngi Cho said that the Holy Spirit doesn’t talk to smart people. In other words, if you already think you know everything, the Holy Spirit will not reveal anything to you. If you want the Holy Spirit to help you, you will have to become like a child.


Confession: Thank you Holy Spirit for giving me the spirit of wisdom and revelation.  I realize that I do not have all the answers. The Greater One living in me will reveal all truths!

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for he will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. (John 16:13 | NKJV)


“The Holy Spirit is a genius. If we listen to Him, He will make us look smart.” – B.B. Hankins


Revelation is a very personal thing. The Holy Spirit’s job is to show us what God has already done for us in Christ. Understanding who we are in Christ is very supernatural.

The Holy Spirit is in show business! He reveals truth, not to our minds or intellect, but to our spirits. You have certain spiritual capacities that the Holy Spirit will show you because you have been born again.

Revelation does not necessarily come easily or conveniently. You have to be determined and say, “God, I’m asking You for the spirit of wisdom and revelation.”

I don’t know what areas you may be a struggle for you today, but I do know that God has already done in Christ whatever you need spirit, soul, body, finances, healing…whatever you need!


Confession: The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. “He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth).” (John 16:13 | AMP)

And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever. (John 14:16)


“The Holy Spirit is a genius. If we listen to Him, He will make us look smart!” – B.B. Hankins


The Holy Spirit knows everything! If we would listen and respond to the Holy Spirit, we could avoid trouble in every area of our lives. We must learn to yield to and not resist the Holy Spirit.

In Greek, the word yield means “when a soldier presents himself to his commanding officer for orders.” This word yield shows us how important it is for each of us to daily acknowledge, recognize, and respond to the Holy Spirit.

Jesus emphasized a relationship with the Holy Spirit–our Helper and Strengthener. If we did not need a vital relationship with the Holy Spirit, Jesus would not have sent Him to live in us. Holy Spirit is the One who puts us over in life. The Spirit of God lives in us, and He is there to help us in every area of our lives. In this relationship, the Holy Spirit will show us truth, teach us truth, and guide us into all truth.


Confession: The Holy Spirit, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, dwells in me. He is a genius. I will listen and respond to Him, and He will guide me into all truth.
