Creating An Atmosphere of His Presence

Saturday May 14, 2022

Everyone can create an atmosphere that brings in the presence of the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:11. How do we do that? We can do it by ministering to the Lord through praise and prayer (Psalm 22:3; 1 Timothy 2:8; Acts 16:9-10, 25). Envy, strife, offenses, and trespasses change the atmosphere for the negative (James 3:16; 1 Peter 3:9). We must believe that we receive our requests when we pray and say them (Mark 11:23). Be intentional and available to praise, worship, and obey the voice of the Holy Spirit. Pray in tongues and meditate on the Word. Keep on growing in the things of God, being faithful, consistent, and serving in His kingdom. Glory in the Lord (1 Corinthians 1:25-31). God will anoint you to do with His ability what you know to do. Default into praise and speak the name of Jesus. Get to know Him (Philippians 3:7-10). He gave us the Holy Spirit and His anointing (John 14:16-17; 1 John 2:20, 27).Take responsibility to hear for yourself from the Holy Spirit, and to pray, to sing psalms, and to call for the elders (James 5:13-14). Take heed to yourself that you are not deceived (John 14:6; 16:13; 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12). Pastor Karen shared about the transgender group at Hempfield High School. Romans 1:18-26. Position yourself to do the right thing before it happens. You are an anointed son of God, so worship, be thankful, and glorify the Lord, staying full of God. Luke 19:10. Identity is an issue in the world and the church. Realize you are a son of God, that you are forgiven, and you can please God. Pastor Karen told of the victory she experienced by taking authority and speaking victory when she accidently hit a child. Compound your spirit of praise and DO NOT BE PASSIVE! Ephesians 2:4-6. Jesus needs you to do the work on the earth. We permit our problems by not praying, confessing, and taking authority. Sowing and reaping is the law of the kingdom (Galatians 6:7). You cast out demons; you do not pray about them (Mark 16:17). Abide in the vine and be fruitful. The fruit of the Holy Spirit is internal. It develops character to match the operation of the gifts of the Spirit. John 4:14; Proverbs 4:23; John 15:1-17; 1 Kings 17:1. Walk with the Lord in a greater way. Pray in the Holy Spirit. Let the Lord reveal what is in your heart. She urged us to listen to Do You Pray in Tongues for an Hour? by Dave Robeson on YouTube.
