Learning to fly in the Spirit, by Instrument Flight Rules (IFR)
We are told in the Bible that God’s ways and thoughts are not ours, but as high as the heavens are above, so are God’s ways and thoughts above ours (Isa 55:8-9)
Jesus also promised that He would send the Comforter (the Holy Spirit) to come along side of us and Teach us, to be our Paraclete, and our Guide in life.
The only problem is if we are going to be used by God, we are going to have to learn to operate from a completely different paradigm from what we are used to in the world, from the way we have been conditioned and trained by the world.
If we are to follow Jesus, then it is we who must change, for truly God’s ways are NOT ours!
The Holy Bible and the promises in that book now become our instruments that we must learn to fly by.
We no longer fly as the world does, by sight sense evidence, in how we feel or think in the natural; but rather we now must learn to fly by faith, according to what God’s Word says!
We Inherited Power
By Keith Butler
“And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power” (Eph. 1:19).
We have power. I’m talking about the strength that progressively increases. I’m talking about that vigor, that dominion, and that manifested power that can be seen. This is all part of the inheritance of the saints.
You inherit all this, “…and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us who believe….” This inheritance belongs to believers. An inheritance is something you don’t earn; it’s something that was left to you.
When Jesus died on the cross, He left you some power, some anointing, some blessings, and some ability.
Jesus understood that when it was time for Him to leave the earth, believers would need weapons that were beyond their thinking and speaking ability, and beyond their natural education, or they were not going to be able to get the job done.
So He said that He would not leave us comfortless. “I will send you another comforter, and he will teach you all things and remind you of what I said unto you.” He is the Holy Ghost. And the Holy Ghost is active, energizing, and effective. He is the power, He is the might, and He performs where you can see it.
Now verse nineteen tells us this power works “according to the working of his mighty power.” Now the word “mighty” here means force—His force. His ability. In other words, God wants us to increase in His dominion and in the manifested power of His force and His ability.
Now notice the term force. That’s a fighting term. I’m not talking about the Air Force. I’m talking about a Holy Force. There is a Holy Force that is better than the Air Force. We have His mighty working power—the Holy Force working in us.
Jesus knew we would need power to defeat the enemy. He knew we would need power to perform miracles when necessary, to have supernatural strength when necessary, and to be able to flow and function when everything else was going contrary, so He prayed the Father to send us the Holy Ghost.
So walk in the inheritance that was given to you—it’s the power of the Holy Ghost. Selah and Amen
