Walk In The Spirit – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional September 7th

(It’s Normal To Walk In The Spirit Every Day)

TO THE BIBLE: Galatians 5:25
“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

Our normal life in Christianity is to walk in the Spirit. Walking in the Spirit means walking by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7).

It means our focus is always on what the Word says, not on circumstances or feelings, and not on what our senses tell us.

When the first man Adam committed high treason in the Garden of Eden, his spirit became subject to his senses.

In other words, his spirit fell. Before that, his knowledge was spiritual, but through his disobedience to God, he became subject to his senses, which was what God warned him about (Genesis 2:17). This was spiritual death.

Man ate from the tree and died. He was instantly separated from God. Adam, who once loved to be in the presence of God, hid himself from that same presence after his disobedience (Genesis 3:9-11).

God is life, and when a man is separated from Him, he can no longer see the things that God sees or the glory of God. That’s why Adam saw himself as naked afterwards.

When you walk in the Spirit, you see the glory of God, His light, His beauty. You see things from God’s perspective.

But when your spirit is not walking in the light of God, you will see what darkness shows you and what your senses perceive. That’s what happened to Adam in the garden.

Romans 9:8 says, “…Those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.” The children of the flesh are those who are ruled by their senses.

But thanks be to God, your ties with the first Adam have been completely and forever severed. You are born of the Lord from heaven and should walk accordingly, in and by the Spirit.

If you walk in the Spirit, you will see that you have authority over the elements, failures, frustrations, darkness, and corruption in this physical world. You will see that you live in and are from another realm, a heavenly realm that is greater than this world. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, I thank You that my faith is the victory that overcomes the world. I choose not to evaluate situations or circumstances based on natural perspectives or my five senses, but rather, I see them through the lens of Your Word. I am not a victim in this world, but a victorious person in Christ. Hallelujah!
