TODAY’S TEXT: “And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light and there was light’ (Genesis 1:2-3)
TODAY’S WORD: THE SUPPLY OF THE SPIRIT PROVIDES AN ATMOSPHERE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH
The supply of the Spirit provides an atmosphere of heaven where the will of God is expressly fulfilled on the earth.
In Genesis 1:1-3 we read again, ‘In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.’
The Holy Spirit hovered on the face of the earth and then whatever God said had an effect. The Spirit of God creates an atmosphere of heaven on earth! This atmosphere becomes the platform on which the Holy Spirit does God’s will on the earth. This atmosphere provides a spiritual ambiance for the word of God to have an effect. In Acts 2 we were told when he came that tongues like cloven fire appeared and sat on each one. Before then the word says the Spirit came like a rushing mighty wind! The supply of the Spirit creates an undeniable physical presence, ambiance, and manifestation!
Luke 5:17 the bible says, ‘And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them’
As Jesus was teaching the word, the Spirit of the Lord was present to confirm whatever the content of the word proclaimed. The word of healing was proclaimed and the Spirit of the Lord was present to heal: the Spirit and the word combining to bring heaven’s will on the earth.
In Acts 4:31 when the Apostles prayed we were told what happened: ‘And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness’. Their house was shaken; now that was physical! Today our homes, churches, workplace needs to be shaken by this heavenly presence of God.
The manifestation of the Spirit always comes with a certain degree of physical demonstration. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:4, ‘And my speech and my preaching were not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power’. The word demonstration translated from the root word means to ‘manifest, to show forth’. The manifestation of the Spirit always brings a physical demonstration of His glory and power showing forth for all to see and experience. In 2 Chronicles 5:13-14 we read, ‘It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD; 14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God’
How much of this physical glory and power we need in our lives, homes, and churches today; an overwhelming ambiance of his power and presence that no disease, sickness, ailments, problems, failure, poverty will be able to withstand.
As you pray today heavens atmosphere becomes permanent for you, in your home, family, and your workplace. Heaven's atmosphere becomes your natural habitat of operation! And the effect of having such presence in your life and in your home is that every word of God in your mouth finds fulfillment as they are spoken in an environment filled with the supply of the Spirit. God’s word will never fail in your life again!
TODAY’S PRAYER: Lord fills my life with a greater presence of your Spirit.
TODAY’S THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: The Spirit of God creates an atmosphere of heaven on earth! This atmosphere becomes the platform on which the Holy Spirit does God will on the earth. This atmosphere provides a spiritual ambiance for the word of God to have an effect.
