“…My Prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.”
Stay in the World – Don’t Let the World Stay in You
Yesterday, we talked about the importance of staying on constant state of prayer. Praying about the big things, yes. But also praying about the little things. What to wear. What to eat and things like that.
The purpose, is to train our spirits to remain sensitive to the leadings of the Holy Spirit. And the only way to do that is be doing a couple of things and doing them consistently. First, read the Word of God every single day. A couple times per day, if you can. But at least start with once per day. Amen! Even if it is only for 15 or 20 minutes.
That will begin to give God access to your spirit through His Word. Amen
The second part of that is praying. Actually taking the time to pray to the Father, in Jesus Name. Ask Him to guide you throughout the day. Ask Him to show you what do. Ask Him to make you sensitive to His promptings.
Then, the third thing, is just like we talked about yesterday, PRAY. But not just the big decisions you are facing. Pray about the small stuff. What to eat, what wear and things like that. If you start to pray and seek His guidance in the small stuff, you will begin to actually “hear the Holy Spirit” as He is speaking to you and guiding you – in the small stuff.
What this does, is it prepares you to immediately hear His voice when the big decisions are needed. And, many times, He will talk to you when you least expect it. Some of those times, you will not even know it was God speaking to you, prompting you or guiding you until after the fact.
Jesus told His disciples, and us, that His desire was NOT for us to be taken “out of the world” – because that would mean we could not ministers to those IN the world and lead them to the Throne of Grace, Mercy and the Forgiveness of sins. His will was simply for us to be PROTECTED from the evil one. Amen!
. It is simply a matter of being sensitive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit – and you that by training yourself to PRAY and be in PRAYER in some form or fashion all day long – yes, even in the little things.
That way, you are able to minister to others, often without you or they even knowing your ministering to them. Amen. Because you are IN THE WORLD but NOT OF THE WORLD. Glory to God.
