How You Can Build Your Life and Ministry on the Spirit's Power

No ministry or saint can advance far in spiritual things without a life of praying regularly in the Spirit, being consistently filled with the Spirit and being led by the Spirit.

You will never learn to navigate in life's troubled waters and come into a port of peace without the aid the Holy Spirit gives. Without being acquainted with the one Jesus gave us, we are at such a disadvantage.

As we age and develop our faith, we become more sensitive and receptive to His leadings and guidance. It's a lifetime pursuit and one that should produce great joy and peace.

Those who are truly sons of God are led by the Spirit of God (see Rom. 8:14). Praying in other tongues helps me and will help you immensely in this regard.

Missionary Days

As a young missionary on an apostolic team that was divinely commissioned, I received the Spirit's training on how to build a life and ministry in the Spirit. We've made our share of mistakes, but none too costly that set us back too far. Thank God for His goodness and His mercy! He works with us and trains us up in the way we should go so that when we are old, we will not depart from it but instead will help equip others.

Our apostolic leader set the example for a lifetime of making our feet like hind's feet and walking on our prayers—and being led by the Holy Spirit.

I believe the greatest thing we can learn and devote our entire lives to is being led by the Spirit. Being grounded and saturated in the Scriptures is a huge part of that.

Our apostolic leader prayed much in other tongues until he knew what to do and how to do it. While I was under his leadership, it seemed as though every move he made produced much fruit to the glory of God. Time and space will not allow me to share the many examples. read more
