2022 | Day Thirty-Two | Discussion Starter


We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity
The Spirit can make life. Sheer muscle and willpower don’t make anything happen. Every word I’ve spoken to you is a Spirit-word, and so it is life-making.
John 6:63


A New Spirit

For about 30 years of my life, I suffered from a bad back. A result of an accident when drunk which I never took care of when I got clean.

After 30 years I had a Pastor in healing ministry pray with me for my back and it was fixed. During that prayer session, the Pastor and I discussed healing ministry and the importance of retraining your Spirit to communicate in God’s power to your body. Recovery requires renewal of your spirit in God’s strength.

We live in a fallen world where sin is often allowed to run its course, affecting believers and nonbelievers alike Romans 12:2 says “Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

To experience the Spirit of God in our lives we need to pay attention to the AA slogan ‘THINK! THINK! THINK’ Our thoughts control our actions and our actions control our behavior.

GOD IS PLEASED WHEN WE THINK ABOUT HIS WORD
1 Timothy 4:13  Stay at your post reading Scripture, giving counsel, teaching.

OUR ACTIONS NEED TO BE GUIDED BY HIS WORD
John 10:25  Jesus said, “Everything I have done has been authorized by my Father, actions that speak louder than words.”

BE PREPARED TO LET GOD NOT ONLY CHANGE HOW YOU THINK BUT HPW YOU BEHAVE
1 Chronicles 29:17  I know, dear God, that you care nothing for the surface—you want us, our true selves—and so I have given from the heart, honestly and happily. And now see all these people doing the same, giving freely, willingly—what a joy!

  • Take time to talk to God about renewal of your spirit.
  • Stop, listen and follow the Holy Spirit’s leading.

Prayer: Just for today Lord help me to train my spirit to speak to my body in your strength so I may be healed.
