THE EVIDENCE OF YOUR LIFE

Scott Ingegneri

Don’t mistake atmosphere for location. When you fill the atmosphere with complaining, faultfinding, and murmuring it's not inviting to the presence of God. The same is true with the Holy Spirit: atmosphere is everything.  The atmosphere of holiness, purity, praise, worship, prayer, love, and unity attracts the Holy Spirit—just as an atmosphere of lust, drunkenness, anger, and hatred attracts demonic spirits. If you are filled with the Holy Spirit, and He is dominating your life, then the fruit of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self-control and gentleness—will become increasingly evident in your life (Galatians 5:22-23).

REST AND RECEIVE

Awaken Ministries International

In the place of rest, we receive; out of receiving we respond. Sometimes that looks like pursuing or pressing. But it’s a response to life, rather than striving for life. Receiving God’s life springing up within us’, rather than striving to break through to life. Faith born out of hope, rather than desperation.

CONNECT TO THE SOURCE

Scott Ingegneri

Seeking first the Kingdom of Heaven means connecting to the source of life. It means pressing in to hear His active voice, reading His living word, and engaging in His power and present realities among us. When you turn your attention to those things, you turn on the power!

BREAKING THE "NEVER ENOUGH" CYCLE

Lydia Ingegneri

To break the “never enough” cycle you must accept that He IS enough, and because He is, we can rest in His accomplished works and walk confidently in the works He has prepared for us. You must also rest in your identity in Christ. Our culture is constantly screaming lies; tearing down truth and purity and tempting us with demonic influence.

I LIKE TO MOVE IT, MOVE IT!

Scott Ingegneri

Faith always moves us into action! Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Jonah, Nehemiah, Peter, Paul, and so many others had to go, obey, and open their mouths. We are called to live courageously and to put action to our faith. You may say, “I’m afraid!” The best way to break fear is to act. It is one thing to pray about a situation. It’s another thing to do something about it.

STIR IT UP

Lydia Ingegneri

Part of living as a Spirit-filled believer is recognizing that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are intended for use every single day, and in many different ways!  The Holy Spirit was given in order that we may not only live life in full measure, but also minister the power of the Holy Spirit to others in full measure!

ENCOURAGE YOURSELF IN THE LORD

Scott Ingegneri

Through praise and worship, David changed his focus. On the wings of a song his spirit was lifted above his present circumstances into the presence of the One who is high and lifted up. The Bible states it very matter-of-factly: “David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.” There was nothing about the circumstance that was encouraging, and if David had limited his focus to the present circumstance, he would surely have gone into a deep depression. In times of uncertainty and upheaval, God was David’s constant. Why? Because God doesn’t change. No matter what the circumstance, God is above it, seated upon the throne of sovereignty and holding the scepter of dominion.

SHOUT GRACE

Scott Ingegneri

We will always come to places where discouragement is a choice. Like Zerubbabel, we need to confront those barriers with recognition of God’s grace in order to bring forth fruit and redemption to those circumstances.

THE GOD WHO IS BIG ENOUGH

Scott Ingegneri

God wants to move you to a place of effectiveness and fruitfulness. Have you ever been in a desperate place of needing God to provide? Maybe you didn’t know where your next meal would come from, or how you would pay your rent or mortgage on time. In your deepest time of need, perhaps you cried out to God and He immediately provided in a miraculous way. I have been in this place more than once in my life, and it is amazing and remarkable to experience provision of this kind. It’s literally as if God is standing at your door and knocking! It’s one thing to be the the one asking for a blessing. It’s another thing entirely to be the one giving the blessings.

REDEMPTION

Lydia Ingegneri

Without the redemptive work of Jesus Christ we are completely helpless. We are fully dependent upon the redemptive power of Jesus in our lives. God has taken the initiative to act compassionately on behalf of those who are powerless to help themselves. This my friends, is a gift beyond comprehension, yet it is available to us all.

HOW TO GET YOUR EDGE BACK

Let me remind you that as a born-again believer you serve the same God Elisha served! He is the God of the impossible. Now is the time to make up your mind that you will believe Him for what seems to be impossible, and stop believing the lies of the enemy, who wants to see you defeated. It’s so important to be determined that you are going to get your edge back. Make up your mind!

WHEN YOU LOSE YOUR EDGE

Scott Ingegneri

Have you lost a job, a home, or even respect and hope? I want to encourage you right now, God can still make iron float! Just like He did for the young prophet (2 King 6) He can return the edge you lost.

FREEDOM IN FORGIVENESS

Lydia Ingegneri

Forgiveness is crucial to the healing process in our lives. If we don’t forgive we won’t heal. Harboring unforgiveness eventually makes your life miserable because it keeps YOU in a place of bondage, not the person who wronged you.  Unforgiveness is like your own personal prison, but forgiveness brings freedom and release.

Unforgiveness makes you a toxic person.  

Here’s the thing with toxins - they leak! When our bodies carry toxins, we experience side effects of pain, headaches, nausea, and other discomfort. This is our bodies telling us something is wrong and we need to fix it! We are not designed to be toxic, therefore we have to be diligent to stay healthy and purge once in a while. It's the same with our emotions.  We are designed to be emotionally and spiritually healthy.  

Unforgiveness, if not dealth with, turns to anger, rage, even hatred.  In other words, it makes you toxic.  It's tough to hide those emotions or to pretend like they don't exist.    

Here are some truths about the power of forgiveness. 

1. When you forgive you release unhealthy emotional toxins, and allow yourself to heal.

Sometimes we are so hurt by other people that toxic emotions, thoughts, and behaviors seep into other areas in life, as well as your relationships. This negatively effects communication, responses and reactions, your thought life, your speech, and even intimacy in marriage. 

2. When you forgive you release the miraculous power of God to work in you, and others! 

A sign that He is at work in you is that you are able to let go and let God work in you and the person who wronged you. A result of this is a powerful release in your mind, emotions, and even your physical body.  Forgiveness causes you to literally feel lighter, happier, and freer.  If you've ever had to lift a heavy desk or carry a heavy box, you know the feeling of relief when you finally get to put it down.  
 

For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer [in accordance with God’s will], believe [with confident trust] that you have received them, and they will be given to you. 25 Whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him [drop the issue, let it go], so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions and wrongdoings (against Him and others). 26 “But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your transgressions.
— Mark 11:24-26 AMP

3. When you forgive, your fellowship with Father God is restored. 

Unforgiveness, and the evidence of it in our lives (anger, hatred, bitterness, wrath), are a sin and isolate us from God. The word tells us that we should not only forgive, but come before the Lord with clean hands a pure heart.  Unforgiveness gives the enemy an open door to take advantage of you! Never go to bed angry.  Do whatever it takes to settle the issue. 

Be angry [at sin—at immorality, at injustice, at ungodly behavior], yet do not sin; do not let your anger [cause you shame, nor allow it to] last until the sun goes down. 27 And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness].
— Ephesians 4:26 AMP
Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? 4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah
— Psalm 24:3-6 NKJV

The Holy Spirit power is available to you today, and every day!  That is GREAT news!  I encourage you today to be empowered by the Holy Spirit and forgive those who have wronged you. Perhaps you may need to forgive yourself from past mistakes, failures, or bad decisions. Come to Lord boldly yet humbly.  Find freedom in forgiveness!

Till next time,
Lydia
