Be Sensitive to the Holy Spirit by Gloria Copeland

In the past we were debtors to the flesh. But now
God is calling us to set our affection on things above.
He wants us to give our attention to the things of the
spirit so we can dominate the world around us with
the love and power of God. God has patiently waited
for the Church. It’s time for His power and glory to be
manifested as never before.

The Lord told Kenneth that there are three things
we would have to do to move in the flow of the Holy
Spirit: 1) We must purge ourselves of sin, 2) We must
intercede and 3) We must prepare for criticism.

But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus
from the dead dwell in you, he that raised
up Christ from the dead shall also quicken
your mortal bodies by his Spirit that
dwelleth in you. Therefore, brethren, we are
debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the
flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall
die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify
the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as
many as are led by the Spirit of God, they
are the sons of God” (Romans 8:11-14).

In the Old Testament, God’s children were very
careful about the dwelling place of the Spirit of God.
We must consider who is living in us! We are walking,
mobile temples of the Holy Ghost! “I will be a Father
to them,” God said. “I will dwell in them and walk
in them.”

The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead
will raise you from the bondage of a mortal body. He
quickened the mortal flesh of Jesus and will quicken
our mortal flesh by His Spirit. But we have to give
Him place. We must be sensitive to Him and be ever
conscious of His presence.

The Holy Spirit is not a dictator. He will move
only when we yield to Him. He is our strengthener
and the One called alongside to help. He cannot
assist us if we’ll not participate with Him in spiritual
action. We must be aware of His presence and
cooperate with Him.
