Day 10: The Key to Being Kingdom Ready

Day 10: The Key to Being Kingdom Ready
Fred Hartley, IV

“Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery, instead be filled with the Holy Spirit.”
Ephesians 5:18

“And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”
1 Corinthians 2:4-5

It doesn’t take Fox News or CNN to tell us the world has changed. We are living in a world full of uncertainty, full of corruption, and we are seeing the end times prophecies unfold before our eyes. In a world that is filled with philosophical thoughts, ideas, and belief systems that are essentially just talk and earthly wisdom, we can be encouraged that our God has equipped us for more. He has given us what we need to demonstrate His power. A lost world needs to see the demonstration of the power of God, and the power of God is made available to us through the Holy Spirit. To be kingdom ready, we must be baptized with the Holy Spirit, and we need to receive the ongoing filling of the Holy Spirit.

The same Holy Spirit that rose Jesus from the dead lives inside of us. The moment you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you are empowered for kingdom living. At the moment you are filled, God's power often passes through your body like a powerful current and fills you with Christ.

In these days that we are living in, people need to see a demonstration of the power of God, and that requires us to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Being Spirit ready makes us kingdom ready. How will God use you today? How will God use you in 2023?

Take time right now to receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit:
  • Submit yourselves to the Lord Jesus Christ.
“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you. Take control of my life. You are my Savior and my Lord.”
  • Confess and renounce any and all sin.
“Lord Jesus, I confess my sin… (be specific). I receive your full forgiveness. If there is any sin in my life I have not confessed, make that known to me also. I want to be a clean vessel. If I have sinned against someone to whom you want me to publicly admit my sin, and make restitution, I am willing to do that. Make it clear to me. I will obey you.”
  • For a moment, stop praying and rebuke the evil one.
“Satan, I bind you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. I command any spirit of bitterness or other spirits to be gone from me. I break any satanic bondage over me and command any evil stronghold in my life to go to the feet of the Lord Jesus Christ. I declare my allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ alone.”
  • Now, by faith, receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit.

“Heavenly Father, right now I receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Saturate every area of my life, every cell of my body with your Holy Spirit. Take control of my body. Take control of my mind, will and emotions. Take back all ground I have given over to Satan. Fill me to overflowing with your Holy Spirit so that I can live a holy life and serve you full of the blessing of Christ. Hallelujah! Amen.”
