PURPOSEFUL ACTIONS THAT BRING INDISPUTABLE RESULTS.
When your spirit man is quickened enough, it is easier to download the will of God concerning your life. It is easier to understand God’s purpose and agenda for the world around you. In short, you will be living by the instructions you get from the inside. Your focus, will be bringing to pass that God reality you have received from your inner man.
“There are no ‘if’s’ in God’s word. And no places that are safer than other places. The center of His will is our only safety – let us pray that we may always know it!” ― Corrie ten Boom
It is those instructions that now dictates your actions in the outside world. So you begin to plan by what you know from inside you. You begin to act in accordance to the leading and instructions that are coming from your inner man. You don’t decide what is right or wrong by what is happening around you, but by what you know from the inside. Your actions are not dictated by what is going on around you, but by what you know is the will of God for you to do.
That is why Jesus lived a superior life. He allowed all His actions to be dictated by the will of God, rather than by what He saw around him. He lived according to the dictates of the kingdom of God in Him. In John 6:38
“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”
Jesus was very certain about his actions, because He first of all looked inside for what God wanted Him to do. After which He acted out what He knew was the will of God. For example, in verse 40 in that same chapter of John.
“And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
Jesus tells us in this verse one of the clear wills of the Father. For which He was sent to the world. According to this verse, He came to the world so that everyone who sees Him and believes in Him may have everlasting life. That becomes His marching order. He knows what to do, He had to plan His actions and strategies so that as many as see Him will believe. So that they might have eternal life.
That instruction from God decides the action of Jesus on the earth, His actions are not determined by the people among whom He lived. Either the Pharisees love Him or the Sadducees hate Him, those were not the things that decided His actions.
“The will of God is not something you add to your life. It’s a course you choose. You either line yourself up with the Son of God…or you capitulate to the principle which governs the rest of the world.” ― Elisabeth Elliot
His actions were not determined by the public opinion or the established order nor norms of the day. Those things didn’t matter anymore. He had a concrete agenda and direction. He had an instruction from the spirit. He only needed to make sure all his actions were directed at carrying out that instruction. This is what it means when Jesus said “the kingdom of God is inside of you”. Jesus showed us how to live out this truth. The kingdom of God is inside of you.
Ladies and gentlemen, can you believe all of us living by this divine order, which means that our actions and deeds on daily basis are purely in accordance to instructions we have received from the Spirit? What that will mean is that we plan our schedules, our routines and our time tables, only according to the instructions we were given from the Spirit realm. So when we go to work, when we plan our day, all that will be around and about the instructions we get from our spirit man. That is what is called living from the inside out. That is what it means by living according to the Spirit of God inside us.
“Success comes from the inside out. In order to change what is on the outside, you must first change what is on the inside.” – Anonymous
It is these kinds of purposeful actions that bring indisputable results. The results will always supersede what human beings could do in their flesh or human power. It is this style of living that makes us to be supernatural and our results super human. One of the best things you could do to yourself is to learn to live according to the dictates of the Spirit. The kingdom of God is inside you.
If you could train yourself to live by the injunctions of your inner man, you will become a sign and a wonder on the earth. Of course just like with everything else, this will not come overnight. You will need a lot of practice, falling and rising, before you could perfect the act. Nevertheless, for all your efforts, you want to learn to make this your priority. Nothing rewards quite like it.
