TRUE SPIRITUALITY PART 2
Like I said in part one, true spirituality is more than going to church, demonstrating the gifts of the Spirit and been busy in one activity or the other in the church. It has nothing to do with your title, the seed, offering and tithes you pay in the church.
It is beyond the human mind. Only a few really desire to go deeper with their Lord Jesus. Many are just comfortable with their shallow
Christian lifestyles and living. You must break free from such circle if you really want To enjoy God to the fullest not in terms of money, wealth, health etc. but in times of maximum relationship with your heavenly Father.
When you begin to enter this realm you will know because your strong desire will be to know Him intimately (Ps.103:7, Ps.42:1-2).
“As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?” (Psalms 42:1-2)
Your serving Him will no longer be based on what He can for you but because you love Him (Ps.91:14, 1Jn.4:15-21).
“Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.” (Psalms 91:14)
You begin to fear the awesomeness of God and tremble at His Word. Brokenness is no longer something you struggle with, you just have to be broken (Isaiah 66:2, 5; Psalm 51:17).
“For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.” (Isaiah 66:2, 5)
No matter the trials and tribulations you face, your faith in God is not shaken like myself who had lost three sons and my spouse had undergone five CS operations. In all these we still say BLESSED BE OUR GOD AND WHAT CAN SEPERATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD (Job 1:20-22,Rom.8:35-39).
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:35-39)
Your life becomes strange to many believers because they don't understand your level of commitment to the Word of God. True spirituality makes you a spiritual commandant and a dangerous vessel in the hands of God. Demons fear you because you radiate the divine presence of God empowered by holy living.Your gifting’s are not just based on CHARISMA BUT WITH CHARACTERS.
Finally, THE TRUE TEST OF SPIRITUALITY IS HUMILITY (Phil.2:6-8, 1Pt.5:5-6, James 4:10). Anyone who claims to be spiritual and does not exhibit humility is only a fake. There is no place for self and pride in God’s kingdom. You can only have that in the satanic world. All true kingdom minded believers know fully well without the help of the Holy Spirit they are nothing but dust.
Dare to start this journey with God? Spend more time in studying the Word, meditating on it, reflecting on the essence of life and discipline yourself to live a divine pleasing life.
