Praying IN THE SPIRIT
Prayer brings us into UNITY with God. It is not sufficient for us just to pray with our mind but we need to pray in the Spirit, WITH the Holy Spirit of God. When we pray we need to TUNE IN to the Holy Spirit and let the Spirit of God FILL our mind with the mind of Christ so that we will know what to rightfully pray.
The apostle Paul writes in Romans 8:26 that we do not know rightfully what to pray but but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. When we come into unison with the Spirit of God then the MIND OF CHRIST is instilled/implanted into us. He puts into our mind those things that are important for the Spirit of God and we can pray ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD. We can intercede according to the WILL OF THE SPIRIT and we come into unity with God.
Prayer is not just a matter of reciting your grocery list to God:”Forgive me this and forgive me that, and give me this and give me that.” NO, it is COMING INTO CLOSE RELATIONSHIP with Jesus Christ through His Spirit. We have to SPEND TIME WITH THE LORD and let His Spirit permeate us and FILL us with the MIND OF CHRIST then we will be able to pray according to the will of God and we will also KNOW the MIND of Christ.
May Jesus bless you.

Walking in the GREATER WORKS
If we follow Jesus Christ signs and wonders will follow us because Jesus said that he who believes in Him will do the works that He did AND GREATER. Jesus also said that it was not Him who did the works that He did but the Father who LIVED IN HIM. If Jesus Christ LIVES IN US then it will be HIM IN US doing the works.
When we follow Jesus He shows us what to do, He tells us what to DO and what to SAY. By FAITH we TRUST Him, we OBEY Him and signs and wonders follow. When Peter and the other disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea, Peter asked Jesus if he could also walk to Him on the sea and Jesus said:”Come!” Peter got out of the boat and he walked on the sea ON THE COMMAND OF JESUS. He did the impossible but when he took His eyes off Jesus and he saw the waves and the water HE SUNK, because he took his eyes off the Master.
If we keep our eyes on the Master then we will do what He commands us to do and the greater works will follow, Jesus said, for those who HAVE BELIEVED and HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED these signs shall follow: They will lay their hands on the sick and they will recover, they will speak in other tongues, they will drink poison, they will take up snakes and nothing will happen to them.
The greater works will follow those who follow Jesus. Are the GREATER WORKS following YOU and me? Do we truly believe and are we following Jesus Christ? Are the GREATER WORKS following us?
May Jesus bless you.

God's WILL will be done
God's will WILL BE DONE. His will WILL be executed and all those who disobey God will perish for eternity. They will be wiped off the face of the earth and the will spend eternity in damnation. Jesus taught us to pray:”Thy kingdom come, THY WILL be done...” Those who DO the WILL OF GOD, they will remain for ever, but those who reject God and disobey Him will perish.
It is not the will of God that anyone perish but that all repent, obey Jesus Christ and have eternal life. God's will is revealed in Jesus Christ. The words of Jesus are the words of eternal life. Those words are written in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John as a witness. The world will be judged by those words. Those who disobey Jesus Christ ARE ALREADY JUDGED.
If we want to LIVE we must REPENT and UTTERLY OBEY Jesus Christ, live in righteousness and in holiness because without holiness no man shall see God. Are you LIVING the will of God or will you perish?
May Jesus bless you.
