Holy Spirit has been showing me how the flow of living water from our bellies manifests in a believer--spirit, soul, and body. He wants us to manifest fullness for ourselves and to overflow toward others. So by His grace I will try to relate this to you now. We have the fullness of Christ in our new creation nature. This is complete, a present possession--ha ha, double fulfillment-- we are indeed possessed by God! The key to living the life of God is for this goodness inside to flow out. It does this as we yield to Holy Spirit which allows for the spirit-life to flow into our heart and then into the mind and then out through the body. The order of ascendancy is critical: you must live from the spirit and your soul must be subject to the spirit. Get out of your head and live from your spirit! Let the mind of Christ in you reign over your natural mind! It is not that your mind and your brain is no good, God designed all of this and He called it good, but it is a question of Kingdom order and putting things in that right order of ascendancy. Holy Spirit showed me this is like being "in the zone" or in a "flow state" as described in athletics. Even for folks that are not born again, they have a spirit, and function at the highest level when they operate out of their inner man, not their head. This was quickened to me as I inquired of the Lord, why I like mixed martial arts so much. What I like is when a fighter is in the flow state, totally not in their head. They don't have to think through every little detail, they just flow from their inner man and perform at their best. I have some experience with this myself playing tennis growing up, before I was born again. There were times when I was so in the zone I could hardly miss a shot. In those times I played my best and sometimes shocked my opponent with my ability to play. Now that we are a new creation, it is so much better. We can enter that flow state with the help of Holy Spirit, but now instead of just the spirit of man rising to ascendancy, we have the spirit of the Son rising to ascendancy! We flow with the glory, power, and love of Christ! We release His glory on the earth! Praise God! Hallelujah!!!
Father, help us to let go and flow in the spirit, by the Holy Spirit, in Jesus' name. Amen!!!
