When the Flesh is Approached by the Spirit
There is a higher law from which human law is based. This higher law abides as a universal current flowing throughout land, seas, and valleys; throughout the earth. When this higher law is violated, it brings confusion upon the earth, but when obeyed it brings harmony. Christ is the One who underwrites your destiny to abide in peace. Therefore, there is no need to fear any reprisals or results once you've committed unto the higher law that abides within God's will. When a person has God's hand upon their life, it is hard to relent or release from the path that God has chosen for them. Nevertheless, many fall along the wayside as they are confronted by those who are inspired to adhere to the flesh or the status quo and norms. In desperate times one should place what energy it takes to conform to the universal laws consistent with the holiness of God. Those who adhere to these changes, are our generational leaders, these buck against a flesh machine created by a society that causes confusion. Many times society are against these generational leaders when they are taking a stand, but they become icons after their enemies have become their foot stool.
"I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth." Ecclesiastes 10:7 (KJV)
When the flesh approaches the spirit, a confrontation occurs that reveals the position of a person, object or thing, and its origin. The flesh's definable on the other hand, the spirit emanating from the eternal or quantum realities can not be fully ascertained. The outer casing of a person thing or object that adheres to the components from which it is made is called the flesh.
Once you've confessed and believed Christ as Lord and the Author and the Finisher of your faith, you are to recognize that even Christ learned obedience from the things that he suffered (Heb. 5:8). Therefore, we are To grow stronger through various trials
It has been said that humans are spiritual being having an earthly experience. Our adherence to our earthly experience makes us fleshly, but as humans have a potential to adhere to a higher realm, the spiritual. Unlike birds, fish, animals, plants, insects and other life forms upon the earth who subscribe solely to satisfy its flesh and its survival; humans have the ability to communication with a higher realm of reality. It is humans who are God-breathed and fitted into earth suits called bodies and that walk upon the earth. Many people who've slipped into a mundane existence respecting only animal like virtue for their sustenance are shocked when confronted with a higher spiritual reason for their existence.
"And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven." Acts 9:2-3 King James Version (KJV)
GROW IN GRACE: Organic Growth
As we grow in grace and conform to the image of Christ, I exhort my Brothers and Sisters in Christ to grow organically or at least have an organic base. If you were born with certain advantages, build upon those without regret but allow God to increase your stamina through trials without causing harm to others. Once planted, again grow in grace as others water your life. The watering may sometimes come in the form of adversity. Nevertheless, don't fight fire with fire but use water and wisdom to win others by organic growth. This slow process adds to every part of your life in a panoramic view versus a pigeon-holed ambitious pursuit to acquire money, position, and power.
Inorganic growth requires manipulative means to achieve the desired end that damages others without regard. Organic growth focuses upon a leading end but causes harm and violates universal law and usually it's brief sustenance has an expiration date with an addendum of God's vengeance attached. So let God bless you and increase your work in an organic fashion. Even if you suffered malnutrition from others, your understanding of God will increase with your desire to draw unto God. God will supply all your need and shine upon you The Spiritual Light that never dims.
NO JUSTICE NO PEACE
“In your worst situation lift up just one hand and waved it. Heaven just want to see your joy. When you lose you joy you lose your strength and when you lose your joy you start losing revelation and revelation is the strongest asset to faith. Your shield of faith starts to fall when you start losing Revelation. You keep you joy and he can’t steal your goods.” Billionaire Bill Winston
