Jude 1:20 (AMP) But you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit
Janice got born again and joined a Christian fellowship. She was faithful with Bible study, however, she still felt something was lacking as she was not quite able to exert her spiritual authority. She approached her fellowship president for counsel, he asked about her prayer life and she confirmed that she prays a few minutes in the morning and has not been quite consistent with it. He also asked her if she was baptized in the Holy Ghost and she affirmed that she was but that she rarely prays in the Spirit. He helped her choose a time every day for her to pray in the Spirit. He followed up with her to ensure she didn’t default. Before long, she testified that not only is she able to exercise spiritual authority better than before, but that she is able to effectively discern the leading of the Holy Spirit for her life and ministry.
Romans 8:26 teaches us that the Holy Spirit helps us, and 1st Corinthians 14:4a says, “He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself”. Another word for ‘edify’ is build up. When we pray in the Spirit we build up ourselves. Today’s text says we make progress and rise like an edifice higher and higher. It is a profitable practice to devote time to prayer and to pray often in the spirit. A person who devotes himself to this will experience great growth and increased spiritual sensitivity.
So make up your mind today to take advantage of this great privilege made available to us in the Holy Spirit. When you do this, you will see your self rise like an edifice. You will be able to discern God’s will for your life and ministry with much more clarity.
Go into today with a mind made up to build your self in your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.
Prayer: Father, give me the strength and discipline to pray in the Holy Ghost today, and every day of my life. Amen.
