I ENJOYED SO MUCH THIS WEEKEND THE WORK OF THE INDWELLING SPIRIT!!! THIS PERSON IN ME HAS SUCH A RICH SUPPLY, ENDLESS, WITHOUT MESSURE… THIS SPIRIT IN ME IS MY DWELLING PLACE, A HIGH MOUNTAIN WHERE I AM SAFE AND IN PEACE. I LOVE THIS EXCERPT FROM THE LIFE-STUDY OF ROMANS:
“When we stay in the spirit, we enjoy the Spirit’s indwelling, life-giving, killing, leading, crying, witnessing, joining in to help in our weakness, and interceding.Eventually, we enjoy Him as the firstfruit of the Triune God, who will become our full taste. This is not a mere teaching; it is an unveiling and also a proclamation of the facts for our enjoyment. When you read of all these aspects of the work of the Spirit, there is no need to fast and pray. Instead, just say amen to each function of the Spirit: “In the spirit, amen. Indwelling, amen. Life-giving, amen. Putting to death, amen. Leading, amen. Crying, amen. Witnessing, amen. Joining in, amen. Interceding, amen. Firstfruit, amen. Amen, I am in the spirit, enjoying the work of the Spirit in me.” I encourage you to amen every verse in Romans 8, especially the phrase “in the spirit.” If you proclaim the fact that you are in the spirit and say amen to each aspect of the work of the Spirit, you will experience a change in your Christian life. This will transform you, build you up, and give you the growth in life.
