The Abiding Life-Part 4 

September 22

 

When we think about the abiding life, we’re thinking about His presence. Remember, He comes and sets up residence in our human spirit. Now, when we live a life of abiding in Him, letting Him have unhindered way, we are allowing God to have His way in us moment-by-moment and day-by-day. This is the Spirit-filled life on earth.

It is about choosing to live a surrendered life and letting Him who is within us have His way. When we do this His Holy Spirit begins to affect our soul. Our soul is where our mind is, where we think, it is where our emotions are, where we feel, and it is where our will is, where we make choices. So, the Holy Spirit is in our human spirit but He is not affecting our soul unless we say, “I will live a surrendered, resting, abiding life.”  When we do this He will affect our mind, our will, and our emotions.

Paul said in Romans 12:2 – but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

How do you have your mind renewed? You have to give up absolute control to the indwelling Holy Spirit who lives in side of you.
