LIVING THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE (1) – Apostle Joshua Talena

(Romans 8:14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

The spirit filled life is the life of a daily walk with the Holy Ghost and is governed by the Word of God. The Spirit filled life is moved by the promptings of the Spirit. A Spirit-filled believer selects what he engages in – be it music, talk, conversations, films, etc. Below are how to become Spirit-filled:

  1. Koinonia with the Word: The Word of God is God. To take the Word of God into your life is to take God into your life. When a man develops insatiable appetite for the Word of God, he has set himself up for fellowship with God. A man studied medical books, and became a medical doctor; a man studied engineering books, and became an engineer. When a man studies the Word of God, he will become Spiritized – a mystery to his generation (Psalms 82:6 and John 10:34). The more of the Word of God you consume, the more of God you become. The Word of God is the transport that conveys the Spirit of God. When you give yourself to the Word, you will be filled with the Spirit of God. If you desire to live a Spirit-filled life, be a person that is constantly studying and meditating on the Word of God.
  2. Having Passion for Worship: God is a Spirit and it is in worship that He can be accessed. Worship is the platform for satisfying the cravings of the Spirit. Worship is the communication chamber of the Spirit and it is the perfume that flourishes heaven. If you hate worship and fellowship, you will be empty of the Spirit of God. To live a Spirit-filled life, you have to be a believer giving to worship.
  3. Being Consistent in Prayer: Prayer is spirit talking to Spirit. It is in prayer that the natural man turns into a spiritual man. Prayer is not just man communicating with God, prayer is also man recruiting and deploying Divinity to favour his cause. Prayer is tarrying before God. Beloved, when you tarry you will carry (Luke 24:49). This generation will ridicule you unless you know the way to the mountain of God. To be Spirit-filled, you must be consistent in prayer.
  4. Having Deep Intimacy with Holy Spirit: Intimacy with the Holy Spirit gives access to the Spirit. Intimacy with the Spirit make you to know things beyond the ordinary. It makes you see what is hidden and to hear what is unspoken. The Spirit-filled life is the life that is led by the Spirit of God (Romans 8:14). If you want to live a spirit-filled life, you have to develop deep hunger/appetite for God.

Beloved, the Spirit filled believer does not live anyhow. His life is energized by God and powered by the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:29-30). The spirit filled life has the Spirit of God and is led by Holy Spirit.

Meditation: Prayer is tarrying before God. When you tarry you will carry.
