Day #20: Spirit of Might
Be Willing

I will not live under fear, oppression, or stress – they are demons! My Jesus is one who does whatever He wants, so I prefer to praise Him, rather than bow to the Devil, regardless of how real he looks. All I know is this: go to Jesus first in all things. Making firm place for Him through all things: praising Him, loving Him, and worship Him first and foremost, and not situations, and this regardless of what comes. I refuse to bow to the demon but to Jesus! For Jesus can do whatever He wants, however He wants, whenever He wants; and I know what He wants cause He was crucified to bring it. So, I aggressively lay ahold of Him, because He has aggressively laid ahold of me. 

Making decisive place for the Presence of God in your life, welcomes and invites Him to come upon you. And He gifts you with increased understanding of what Jesus has already achieved for you. ‘If we all could understand what Christ Jesus has done for us we would live rich in soul and spirit and not begging and doubting the greatness of the Salvation of our Lord’ (a friend). With the Voice of the Father speaking into your soul, a ‘word of Knowledge’ from the Lord, He imparts a ‘gift’ of faith. And it is this gift of faith that brings the healing, that brings the move of the Spirit. Prayer doesn’t move His Hand so much as it is faith that God responds to. In the Presence of God the Lord gives you a deepening faith through your continual encounters in Him.


Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me. (Revelation 3:20 AMPC)

Jesus is always wanting to come in and eat with you and you with Him.. And if you ‘heed’ to this truth and welcome Him in daily He will ‘come in’. In your hand, you have the gift of free will. This is a right instituted sovereignly by God, and He will never interfere with that, or take it away (except on the Last Day), for it is the basis of love. The Lord will not force anything upon you, even if your own will, doctrine, and choices destroy you. By your own will, your own choice, you are able to either draw from Him, or otherwise completely deny Him (Titus 1:16, 2 Tim. 3:5). 

Jesus is always with you, but you have to be willing to choose to be with Him in all circumstances of life. (“Boo!” the demon goes, “boo” and most Christians run from the feet of Jesus in an instant). Jesus stands at your door and knocks; He will not force, He will not shove, and He will not yell out. But He waits for you to welcome Him in. He quietly knocks, but eagerly stands by the door of your life. However, He will not cross the line of your will (unless through the power of intercession), regardless if you are a believer and ‘love’ the Lord Jesus, the physical door of your heart is your will. Therefore, open it up! All you need to have is an honest willing heart, yielding to Him (Ps. 51:10) … that is it (Mark 9:24).

By your own will you can draw richly and deeply from Him continually. And in the same way, by your own will, you can fully deny the Lord of Heaven and earth (even out of ignorance). He who breathed the stars into existence with a word will not interfere with your will, for your will is most sacred to Him and, therefore, very powerful. For by it, if you choose, you can draw from the Lord of Glory all day long (1 Cor. 2:9 AMPC) or otherwise completely and totally deny Him. 

As you spend time in the Presence of Jesus, under the ministering Grace of the Holy Ghost. As you behold the Glory of Jesus in the Courts of God day by day, this same Glory comes upon you. As a result of this, you come to carry a greater and increasing measure of the Glory of our Lord Jesus Christ with you wherever you go.


And all of us, as with unveiled face, as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 

By your will you as a born again believer can draw liberally from the same Waters of the Living God as Christ Jesus. Cast aside the spirit that denies Him and pick up the Hope that allows you to enter right behind the Curtain where Jesus has gone before you (Heb. 6:19). No creature, no being above or below the earth has this right, except those who are born of Christ Jesus. Of Him who’s Blood was shed for you, fully cleansing you from all unrighteousness before the Father. The Blood that provides covering for you to approach the intensity and the ‘heat’ of the Glory of God. 


“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” (Exodus 

Take off your sandals; lay on the Alter of God all guilt of sin. And in preference for our Heavenly Father, and for His Hand personally at work in your life, lay on the Alter all the issues, dreams, and fears of life. Leaving them there under God’s full care. Giving Him full and sovereign right over ALL the issues of your life, of ministry, and of the Kingdom of God. Therefore, releasing His Hand concerning you, and welcoming His Gifts and powerful participation. 

Daily take up your cross (Luke 9:23), and by your own choice entrust your life to the One who is fully trustworthy, daily! In Him who is fully able, who is fully capable to make what is wrong right in all their facets. The Holy Spirit is able to actively see your whole life as an open book, from your conception (even ancestrally) all the way to your burial. He can speak, heal, restore, and make right any part of it. Turning that of which was meant for your harm into your greatest of good and strength. This is achieved by simply fixing your will towards the Lord of Glory and trusting Him. 


Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. (Ezekiel 

Jesus has prophesied and clearly spoken words over your life, all through the Word of God and especially in the Gospels. We all have fallen short of the measure of Glory that Christ Jesus has achieved for each one of us on the Cross. The truth is that in comparison we are all just skin and bone. But by simple act of will we can choose to lay the issues of life on the Alter of God and be led into the Most Holy Place. Here receiving rich ministry in the Presence of the Lord, as we enter the Courts of God in the deepest of praise and honour for the Blood shed for us. In the secret language of the Spirit, and even in unknown tongues, in the language given you by the Spirit of God (1 Cor. 14:2); offering up ‘perfect’ praise unto the Lord your God. Praising unceasingly: continually abiding and remaining in the ministering and powerful Presence of the Lord, our God, as you go about daily life. 

Pray this prayer with me. ‘Lord, I welcome you afresh into my life. I invite you to make your home in me. I make myself ready to receive you, please enter my life. Though you are my Lord and Saviour, I wish not to have my door closed, but fully open unto you. Please come in and sup with me and me with you, I treasure the fact that you desire to sit with me and share of yourself. Please lead me, once again into your Holy Presence. I open my heart wide to you, anew this day, in Jesus Name. Amen’.
