Ways to Live a Spirit Filled Life Bible Tips

Hand Me the Keys ... I'm Driving

You know, you can trust God for everything in your life. He cares about all of it, even the smallest, most insignificant thing. He wants you to firmly rely on His promise that He is in control. The more faith you have in His power in every situation, the more He can fill you with His joy and peace. You won't need to worry about anything because you will know that God is taking care of everything.

Let's take a short How to walk in the Spirit road trip ... When you go on a road trip, and someone else is driving, if you trust that person's ability to drive, you can relax and read or sleep or enjoy the scenery or whatever you like. But if you don't have faith in the driver's ability, you can't enjoy the ride because you have to worry about all the "what ifs" that could happen.

When you trust in God, and hand Him the keys, you are putting your life into His hands ... And who could have more capable hands than God? When you don't allow Me to work in your life, it's like saying, Give me back the keys Lord, I can navigate this life better than you can.

Let's take a quick Living a Spirit Filled Life Bible detour to understand the Holy Spirit better. In the Bible, the term the Hand of the Lord, is a simile for the power of the Holy Spirit. That is ... Me at the wheel. When you read about the Great Commission that Jesus gave His disciples, to go into all the world, preach the Gospel to every creature and make disciples of all the nations, and ...

... Lo, I Am with you always ...

He was telling them, not to worry, because He would be with them in Spirit, and that He would fill them with His power ... Me ... To pull off such an incredible task, because they certainly couldn't do it of their own accord. And as impossible as it seemed, a dozen fellas, ordinary believers no different than you, who had trouble catching fish, accomplished the seemingly impossible ... Catching the souls of men, with astonishing success.

Fishermen of men. They catch them and God cleans them.

Matthew 4:19

And He saith unto them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.

And they were indeed! How? They surrendered their lives to My control and allowed Me to work through them ... And you can be one of Jesus' fishermen too!

Here is a Living a Spirit Filled Life Bible question for you ... When was the last time you prayed, earnestly, Dear Jesus, fill me with your Spirit. Put your Hand upon me and work through me for your glory.

Be Bold!

Here is an example of how to walk in the Spirit ... Walk and talk with Me. Let's read the book of the Acts of the Apostles together sometime soon. The Apostles were the prime examples of living a Spirit filled life. With My power, they went out and spoke with boldness, spreading the Gospel. The Good News which Jesus taught them. Remember, He assured them that I, the Holy Ghost would help them to remember all that He said:

John 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

How to Walk in the Spirit Now and Forever

You don't need to be intelligent or educated ... I will give you the gift you need ... The Word to speak.

Acts 4:13

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

Acts 5:32

Acts 7:51

Acts 9:29

Acts 13:46

Acts 14:3

Acts 18:26

Acts 19:8

Through these "unlearned" and "ignorant" men, thousands of souls at a time were turned on to Salvation through Jesus Christ by My power working through them. I can work through you too, and will, when you decide you want to live a Spirit filled life. Here is a Living a Spirit Filled Life Bible tidbit of Truth ... You need not be a Biblical or carnal scholar to be filled with My power. Can you think of one person in the Bible who was scholarly that stands above anyone else? Look at what I did through Paul.

Before he was Spirit filled and Living a Spirit Filled Life, (though he was very zealous about Jewish law) do you think he had the inclination to study the Gospel Jesus preached? He was busy persecuting Christians and promoting a slaughter of all who followed The Way of Jesus. Now, My Words through his writings are much of the New Testament and have reached tens of millions of souls.

He went out and immediately started preaching.

Acts 9:20-22

20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that He is the Son of God.
21 But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?
22 But Saul [Paul] increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.

My Hand and your heart ... That is all it takes to begin Living a Spirit Filled Life. If this How to walk in the Spirit voyage is the only program or study you have ever read, you already know enough to step out and speak boldly, glorifying God. It means this: To voluntarily surrender your life to Me, and moment by moment, walk in dependence upon Me. Be sensitive to My leadership and My guidance with childlike faith that I will be what Jesus promised that I would be ... Your Comforter and your Helper every step of this Living a Spirit Filled Life Bible path to peace ... And Beyond.

Ask God to fill you with My power ... His presence.

Luke 11:13

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?

Jesus said that if you just believe in Him, you can expect Me to be within you:

John 7:38-39

38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

How to Walk in the Spirit Rewards

A New Attitude

When you surrender your life to Me and seek the Spirit filled life, all your problems may not suddenly disappear. You may not find yourself walking on a cloud every day. You probably won't magically start getting the best parking place in the lot, and I wouldn't count on Ed McMahon coming to your door with balloons and a large check. Your taxes will still be due every year and the enemy of your soul will tempt and try you every day as per usual.

Here is little how to walk in the Spirit advice ... Never limit God. The power that He gives Me to work in and through you is supernatural, and you never know what kind of miraculous things can and will happen in your life. Remember, you are renewed in Spirit, and though many things will be the same as they were, you are different. You have a new attitude, a new spirit, and the spiritual world is mysterious and powerful and out of the ordinary. Do expect extraordinary things to happen ... But chances are, they won't be what you expect or plan.

John 14:12

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.

The key ... Is to believe.

Be confident that I have your best interest at heart, and your willingness to surrender yourself to My bidding will make the Lord smile upon you, and blessings will flow that you never imagined could. Your attitude is everything. Jesus taught, believe to receive a Spirit Filled Life.

Matthew 17:20

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

You are a child of God, made in His image ... He has plans for us to do extraordinary things together.

Romans 8:16

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

Oh, Glorious Grace

Another Living a Spirit Filled Life Bible trivia question for you ... When you live a Spirit filled life, does that mean you will be less apt to fall? My dear friend, that all depends on you, but falling doesn't mean you're a failure by any means. When you live the Spirit filled life, it does mean that the enemy will be trying even harder to make you fall. The closer you stay to Me, the craftier he will have to be, but keep your confidence. God did not create you to fail. To fall doesn't mean to fail. You will still fall. I will be waiting when you do, to reach for My hand to lift you up. The sooner, the better and just for the asking, forgiveness will flow.

Just as it is with any child who says "I'm sorry," when the Lord forgives, all is forgotten, and His loving arms are opened and waiting to nestle your soul in Comfort and love. When Living a Spirit filled life, you take comfort in God's generous Grace, and forgiveness will become a stronger characteristic of your own, as you conform more and more to God's image.

Titus 3:3-7

3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
6 Which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
7 That being justified by His Grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

This is how to walk in the Spirit ... You know that you are Spirit filled when you yearn to do God's will and seek earnestly how you can glorify Him with every thing you do. It will become the quest of your life, to represent Jesus Christ and emanate His love to others. Your heart will become more compassionate, your patience will grow, your discernment will widen, your understanding will deepen, and you will know, without a doubt what the purpose for your life is and that on your Christian path, you are not walking alone, you are walking with Me, hand in hand, every step of the way.

Here is a Living a Spirit Filled Life Bible reminder ... Being Spirit filled means that you're filled with the Spirit of God. Did you know that the Kingdom of God is within you? It is not a physical place. It is a Spiritual realm that cannot be seen. That is where you will find Me. I Am in God's special place which is a bit of Heaven within you.

Luke 17:20-21

20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the Kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said, The Kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.

1 Corinthians 3:16

Know ye not that ye are the Temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

John 3:5

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.

Living a Spirit filled life, means that you can do things that you wouldn't have attempted before, because you allow the very Spirit of God to work through you with wisdom, strength, power and confidence at any time, and under any circumstances. My power is limitless. Relax and be assured that no matter what, I Am with you.

Psalms 46:1-3, 10

1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
10 Be still, and know that I Am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

The Living a Spirit Filled Life Bible procedure seems to be this. Listen ... Wait for your guidance, and it will come. Follow it willingly and learn how a Spirit filled life can overflow with more goodness than you ever dreamed was possible.

I Love You

You are a child of God and I love you. No matter what you've ever done, I love you still! You have an eternal spirit alive within you and I know your spirit completely, and I love you. You're living your life, making choices, trying to do the right thing, doing what you have to do to survive, and it can be very difficult. I know and understand all of it. But, it can be easier if you will spiritually connect to Me.

I will show you what things are important and what things are temporal, because the things of the flesh, the things of the world, material things ... Will all be left behind. What matters are the things of the spirit ... Love, faith, mercy, peace, patience, meekness, humility, gentleness, kindness ... Those are the things that make you rich and strong in spirit.

When your flesh goes back to the earth, the goodness of your soul will be what really counts, because your soul never ages or dies. Your soul is the real you, and though for now it lives inside the shell of your flesh, it will live on forever, so abide in love. Include love in every facet of your life. Be compassionate, do good, be generous and understanding and forgiving, and by sharing love, you show Me to others.

1 John 4:16

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

I love you, and I want to spend eternity with you.

Living a Spirit Filled Life Bible Summary

Once you really get to know Me well, there is one thing that you would absolutely despise about Me. And that would be, My absence. But that never has to happen. The only time I would ever be gone, is if you left Me. You see, when I move in, I plan on staying forever. I believe in forever friendship. Two peas in a pod, inseparable, joined at the heart, kindred spirits, in for the long haul. Whatever you want to call it. That is what I plan on.

You may have a little trouble at first, remembering that I'm there ... Everywhere. But, eventually, you will look forward to moments in your day when you can be alone, so you can talk to Me in private. Many times you won't even talk either, you'll just feel My presence more strongly, and don't worry, those times when you want to say something, but you can't put it into words, I already know what you want to say. I AM your most intimate personal friend in the world, and I know you inside out. I love you that much.

In the seventeenth century there was a Christian man named Brother Lawrence who worked in a monastery kitchen. This is what being filled with the Spirit meant to him:

I do nothing else but abide in His Holy presence, and I do this by simple attentiveness and an habitual, loving turning of my eyes on Him. This I call ... A wordless and secret conversation between the soul and God which no longer ends.

I look forward to that kind of relationship with you My friend. Being Spirit filled is an unconditional Love that can not be compared to loving another human being ... It's the breath of life.

Ephesians 5:18

... be filled with the Spirit ...
