7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you will hear His voice,
8 Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of trial in the wilderness,
Today’s Inspiration: The Holy Spirit warned us that today if you hear His voice, we should not harden our hearts as in the rebellion in days of trial in the wilderness. They are rebellious because the words they hear are not mixed with faith or they have allowed their flesh to override the Spirit’s voice. Hebrews 3:7, 8 & 4:2.
Entering into rest in biblical meditation is important because the meditation of the word empowers you to discover your condition as it is the discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12. So let us come boldly to the throne of Grace daily to obtain mercy and find grace to help in times of need. Joshua was told to enter into His rest to have biblical meditation on His words day and night to achieve success and prosperity in all that he does. Joshua 1:8-9.
The woman with the issue of blood speaks words into her spirit that if only she can touch the helm of Jesus, she will be healed. Her words penetrated into her spirit and she began to see herself well. She decided to abandon her hopelessness and defeat and took on faith filled words and speak out those words of healing from her mouth. Her faith touched the compassion of Jesus who released the healing anointing to manifest the healing on her body. Her faith gives substance to her hope that brought about manifestation of the healing that was already hers because of the covenant. Giving voice to your faith can make you well. Healing was in the atonement. Isaiah 53:5-6.
Confessing His word in 1 Peter 2:24 and thanking Him for it, changes an image of sickness into an image of healing and health. It’s the same when you profess breakthrough with your speech, you will receive breakthrough according to the level of your faith in any aspect of your life. In Him we have life and ever abundantly. John 10:10. Therefore close the ears to the voice of the enemy and heed the voice of the spirit.
Just as it takes years to walk from the mother’s womb, it takes years to walk with the Holy Spirit in godliness and Holiness. We must cultivate our relationship with the Holy Spirit before we can enter into intimacy with Him. The Holy Spirit has been given to you on the day of salvation. You just need to activate your faith to walk with Him. He should not be treated like a spare Tyre. The Holy Spirit loves our presence more than we desire His presence. Our relationship with Him cannot go higher than our obedience.
Obedience is sacrifice. We should desire more infilling of the Holy Spirit so that we are easily led by the spirit but many believers desire to be led and overlooked the infilling. With continuous infilling, our faith is activated and out spirit is strong. We need to hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering no matter how difficult a circumstance we are in. He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23. God be praised!
