SINCE MEEKNESS IS THE DOORWAY TO BLESSING, ANY CAPTIVE IN NEED OF DELIVERANCE MUST BECOME POOR IN SPIRIT. (MATTHEW 5) TO BE POOR IN SPIRIT IS TO BE EMPTIED OF ONE’S CHARACTER DEFECTS. DELIVERANCE WILL EMPTY THE CAPTIVE FROM DEMONS, BUT THESE DEMONS AND OTHERS WILL ULTIMATELY RETURN IF THE CONDITIONS THAT PROVIDED THEM A SAFE HAVEN STILL REMAIN. THEREFORE, MY JOB AS A BEARER OF THE WORD OF GOD IS TO SEEK THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TO SENSITIZE A CONSCIENCE THAT HAS BEEN HARDENED BY THE PRIDE OF LIFE. MEEKNESS IS MANIFESTED WHEN THE CAPTIVE COMES TO THE REALIZATION THAT HIS THOUGHTS ARE NOT AS HIGH AS THE LORD’S THOUGHTS, NOR HIS WAYS HIGHER THAN THE LORD’S WAYS.
Continual brokenness before the Lord Jesus Christ has sustained me with a simple, yet a profound truth and it is this. “Whatever does not originate in your inward parts–in your spirit–will not bring you life.” In this regard, I have learned through personal experience that false or counterfeit spirituality may appear to produce a beneficial result but it cannot grant authentic, lasting, resurrection life. I have entered into the Lord’s rest because I myself have labored by the revelation of the Holy Ghost. No more vain strivings for success according to man’s standards.
What are YOU still striving for? How strong is your pride of life?
