The Spirit-led Woman

A woman can either be “carnally” or “fleshly-led”, Or she can be “Spirit-led.”

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,

who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. ”  

– Romans 8:1

Have you ever desired freedom?  Have you ever desired rest?

No longer anxious of what the future holds and what is just around the corner of life–  Read This.

 

The truth is the two are opposite to each other.  The flesh is all about ME- __(Place your name here)__.  All that I want the money, the show, servants are my beak and call as I receive that “much-needed” manicure….

The Spirit, on the other hand, is living a Christ-centered, God-serving life where though you give up your control and grip, a better, greater purpose is being fulfilled in your life.

Who is a “Carnally-Led” Woman?

A carnal-led woman:
1. Desires only to satisfy her physical, material or selfish needs.   She is in constant need of more money, more make-up, a lower blouse, a shorter skirt.  There is never enough of anything.  So she gives away her heart, her dreams and even her body in hopes of being fulfilled–  Not seeing that Christ is exactly what she needs.
2. The carnal-led woman does not hearken to the prompts and “knocks” of God when He calls.
3. Romans 8:8 says that her life “can not please God.”

4. And Lastly, this life leads to death.

Who is a Spirit-led Woman?
1. Has no condemnation.  The guilt of past sins, and the shame of bad decisions and selfish choices no longer burdens her.  She is free.  She knows all of her sins are cleanse, thrown into the Sea of Forgetfulness, never to be brought back or held against her.  She is free indeed.       (John 8:36)
2. God’s righteousness is fulfilled in her.  She lives a pure, righteous and holy life to please and lift up God.
3. They no longer desire the things of the flesh but the Spirit, meaning the days when it was all about them- “GIMME, GIMME” and their world was clouded by vanity and every superficial thing: those days are over for her.  The only waters that quench her thirst, is the Living Water.  (John 4:10)

There are two Laws:
1. The Law of the Spirit of Life through Christ Jesus.

And…

2. The Law of Sin and death.

The first Law over-powered and overcame the second law.

Romans 8 :11 – “the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead… will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”

“Living/Moving” Traits of Spirit-led Woman”
1. Her conversation is pure.
2. She dresses modestly so as not to be a distraction.
3. She lovingly supports her other sisters in the faith.
4. She lives like Heaven is her true home.
5. She stays in prayer.
6. She daily reads God’s Word- the Bible.
7. She is dressed in humility.
8. And carries dignity or self-worth everywhere she goes.
9. **Her life points to Christ.

Because she trusts in someone worth trusting, because she clings to someone worth clinging and hopes in the most reliable One, she is so much more secure and at ease about the future.  She knows that the One she entrusts her life to- God himself- will be with her every step of the way.

Are you a Spirit-led woman or a Carnal-led woman?

Think about it!

Father,

Teach me to live a life where I allow your Holy Spirit to lead me rather

than being guided by my own desires and intellect.  Because you love me,

because you gave your Son for me, I know your plans are far better for me

and you are worthy of my trust.   I give this life over to you.  For your will,

for you plans and to be led and directed by you.

In Jesus’ Name.

 

Let it Rain!

Enough sprinkles, enough drips, drops.  I WANT RAIN!!!

Bring the deluge of God’s Presence!!!

Jesus was teaching in the temple, exhorting his followers and saying, “I will be with you “a little while longer, and I go to Him who sent Me,” in John 7:33-39.

The crowd grew concerned and began to question, where is He going that we won’t be able to find him!  

Then the next thing Jesus says took place during one of the Jewish Feast. He stood in the middle of crowd and exclaimed,

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.”

If anyone is thirsty, let him go to Jesus and drink!

Mountain-Stream

If anyone is deading, wilting, suffering from the empty wells of this world.  The lack of satisfaction and fulfillment the world, money, greed, lust and pride of life.

“For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life…” – 1 John 2:6

If anyone ANYONE feels robbed of peace, happiness and joy, meaning and significance.  If ANYONE feels burdened with guilt and shame of a life of bad choices, wrong company, and a sins that weigh you down, sins that hold you hostage, like an shackles about ones arms and feet!!

You’ve lost love, you’ve lost joy, you haven’t experienced true peace in ages and your future looks hopeless:

Jesus is saying, “Come to ME and DRINK.”

God told the people of Judah,

“Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow.
Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.” -Isaiah 1:18

No matter what you’ve done, or how dark, dirty and stained you are, Jesus will make you clean, refreshed and BRAND NEW!!

“So if the Son -Jesus- sets you free, you are truly free!” –John 8:36NLT

All we have to do “confess our sins –to Him, and He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Confess your sins, your wrongdoings to God, believe Jesus died and rose from the dead for our atonement, and YOU ARE SAVED!  THAT’S ALL!! -Romans10:9

Watch Jesus and his Spirit-the Holy Spirit- give you indescribable peace.  As you feed on His scriptures, you will find God’s love, God’s power filling up every area of your life until all of YOUR THIRST is QUENCHED.    To God Be the Glory!

But there is icing as well.

Jesus went on to say,

“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”  (John 7:33-39)

Living water that is fresh and clean, but also satisfying to the soul.  Because this water is LIVING it satisfies forever! It is an endless spring of life that carry on into eternity.  “…that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” -John 3:16.  And Jesus went on in to say in John 7, that this river of living water is referring to the baptism of the Holy Ghost (John 7:39  If you haven’t received the infilling and baptism of the Holy Spirit, get it! For it will empower you to live the “abundant life” by Christ Jesus. (John10:10)

When Jesus said out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. Yes it is a continual stream.

His Holy Spirit will comfort our hearts daily.   -John 14:26

His presence will strengthen our joy.   -Ps. 16:11

His joy will be our strength.   -Neh. 8:18

His love will encourage our souls.   -John 3:16-17

When Jesus said, he who believes in me out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. Know that God love can not be contained.  It is uncontainable, immeasurable, and extends above the heavens (Ps. 108:4).  Only Jesus can satisfy a thirsty soul and only His Spirit can yield the continual flow of this limitless, unending and satisfying WATER!

Why not try Jesus.

Dear God,

I receive Jesus as Lord of my life.  I confess my sins. I believe that

he died and rose again, and now I am born again,

brand new! (John 3:3)  May the well of your Spirit continue

to flow out of my life into the lives of others.  In Jesus’ name.
