Living By Faith

THE HOLY GHOST IS A GENIUS

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (Romans 8:14)

The Holy Spirit knows the mind of God and everything that Jesus has purchased for us. Mark Hankins

When the enemy has a scheme or strategy to come against you or your family, the Holy Spirit will warn you. He knows what God has planned for you. He is concerned with every area of your life. If you will listen to Him, He will make you successful.

It is great to have a genius living in you. Until you stop and recognize the Holy Ghost, He will allow you to keep doing what you are doing. You must stop and say, “Alright, what would the Genius like to say?”

I heard Dad Hagin say that the Lord told him, “If we would be led by the Holy Spirit, He would make us rich.” He said the word richmeans to have an abundant supply.  When the Holy Spirit leads us, He will bring us into the blessing of the Lord and we will be a blessing to others.

Confession: I hear and obey the voice of the Holy Spirit. I recognize His leading and I will follow. I have an abundant supply. I am blessed to be a blessing to others!

THE MIND OF A GENIUS

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

If you want to study the mind of a genius, be filled with the Holy Spirit. Mark Hankins

It is clear that the death, burial, resurrection, and the Word of God are very important. However, if that were all we needed, God would not have sent the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is very necessary and it is essential that we know about Him. Jesus and the Apostle Paul spent a great deal of time teaching believers about Him. Jesus was excited because He knew that the coming of the Holy Spirit would usher in a new day for believers.

We must recognize Him. We must respond and yield to Him. He is a Genius. He transmits the mind of Christ to us. We can think like God when we are filled with the Holy Spirit. He gives us uncommon intelligence, insight, and understanding.

Confession: I choose to recognize, respond, and yield to the Holy Spirit. I have uncommon intelligence, insight, and understanding as I yield to the work of the Holy Spirit in my life.

EVER-INCREASING

The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. (Daniel 11:32 NKJV)

Every advance in the call and the blessing of God comes from an advance in revelation. Mark Hankins

God created you to know that there is more available than what you have right now. He’s looking for somebody who will believe God. While everyone else is scared, God is looking for someone who will act in faith — somebody who will know God.

If you want life to be different for you, pray the prayer in Ephesians 1:17-23 every day for at least six months. If you really want to know what the will of God is, if you really want to be in the right place at the right time with the right people, if you really want to be led by the Spirit, take this prayer and pray it.

Believe God for a breakthrough in revelation. Believe for a revolutionary revelation in your understanding, in the eyes of your heart. Believe for a breakthrough in the way you see yourself, the way you see the call of God, the way you see your inheritance, and the way you see your authority as a believer.

Confession: That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. (Ephesians 1:17)

UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES

That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection…(Philippians 3:10)

The spirit of wisdom and revelation opens our eyes to the unlimited possibilities of God. Mark Hankins

Dr. Lester Sumrall once said that most Christians never progress beyond their initial revelation of God. Every breakthrough in faith comes from a breakthrough in revelation knowledge, not necessarily new information. You cannot go forward in faith without going forward in revelation.

Revelation changes our perspective. It is not something you see with your natural eyes or learn by head knowledge. Revelation enables us to see what God sees. The view is very different when we see things from God’s perspective.

We live in this world, but we are not of this world. We are tempted to walk by sight, but we must walk by faith– by revelation knowledge. Holy Spirit is the revealer of revelation. Our natural eyes can’t see it, but our hearts can see it. We are in a revolutionary revelation given by Jesus from the Father by the Holy Spirit.

Confession: The eyes of my heart, my spiritual eyes, are open to receive revelation. The eyes of my understanding are being enlightened still more and more! (Ephesians 1:18  Doddridge Translation)

WHERE FAITH BEGINS

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)

Every breakthrough in faith comes from a breakthrough in revelation. Mark Hankins

Revelation is the difference between faith and mental ascent. For the spirit of wisdom and revelation to work in your life, you will have to get beyond the theological, the historical, the geographical, and the doctrinal perspectives of the Bible and enter the realm of the inspirational.

2 Timothy 3:16 says that all scripture is inspired or God-breathed. When revelation is released in your life, you enter a realm where God breathes His Word into your spirit and talks to you personally.

Moving up in faith is a greater challenge than climbing Mount Everest. By the spirit of wisdom and revelation, we can know the limitless possibilities of God’s plan and purpose for our lives. With each new revelation, the Holy Spirit will lead us to another altitude camp. He is our guide, and He will take us to the top if we will listen to Him and follow Him. See you at the top!

Confession:  I am moving up in faith by the spirit of wisdom and revelation. For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)
