I had an overwhelming urge from the Lord to write this this morning.

Here in my feeling is not only the attributes of Christ we get as we grow, but the attributes Christ
displayed during HIS walk on earth.

There is no particular order to these, although you may decide for yourself how you have been changed
in your growth cycles by the Holy Spirit.

Remember one thing in all this, Christ could read the minds of people before they spoke, He knew the pasts, present and
futures of the people wherever he was.

You start seeing people as spiritual victims of their naiveness or stubbornness in many cases for not accepting Christ and HIS ways.

You stop worrying about what people think or say about you.

You stop judging people altogether and start seeing them for who they really are. (mostly victims of their environment)

You recognize that the spirit of anti-Christ sometimes will repel you from people in certain ways whether by their repulsive behavior or their rejection of you because they are judging you instead.

You can handle rejection a lot better than you used to.

You start giving of yourself at different times and enjoy giving tithes to the most needy of people you may see on the street.

You are walking along and see a beggar or needy person and you don't feel the leading of the spirit so you walk by without giving them anything.

You are prompted by the Holy Spirit to just give someone money, and if it's a friend, you make sure they understand it's not a loan but a gift.

You start spontaneously praying for people you see on the street and ask God to manifest Himself in their lives or to send
someone across their path to save them if their not saved already.

You have a conscious thought pattern where Christ is never forgotten in your daily activities as you go about your business.

You stop shying away from talking about God with your friends, associates or strangers.

You can look at people now and discern them according to God's word in a spiritual way and understand whether they are in
or at a spiritual growth level and pray for them accordingly, or recognize whether they are spiritually or morally bankrupt and
don't have a clue.

You recognize opportunities now where God puts you in a unique position to just plant seeds for him or even harvest a soul he has prepared for His Kingdom.

You get spiritual inspirations sometimes when your mind is calm and you're not being bogged down by earthly thoughts, and sometimes you even wake up in the middle of the night when it happens to you. Sometimes you even journal them for later prosperity.

You often ask God within yourself what you are supposed to do.

You talk to God under your breath because you know He's listening all the time.

You realize that with Christ being in you, he is with you and aware of your daily routine and so you treat him as an invisible friend all the time.

You often thank God for the very little and insignificant things that happen in your daily routine both good and bad, because you know God is watching out for you and teaching you every step of the way.

When God reveals something to you you don't question it's validity or reasons.

You always feel a hunger for reading, hearing and learning God's word or spiritual lessons as they manifest themselves in your daily lives.

You no longer avoid learning lessons that come and go, and you have a better ability to retain the things God taught you at any particular time in your spiritual walk.

You have the ability to exercise more patience in the face of adversity. 

You have decided to find out what your natural spiritual gift is that everyone has been given so you can be aware of using it in a Godly fashion.

You recognize how God has already changed you and you thank Him at times when you're hearing a good sermon about spiritual growth or reading a meaty devotional.

You no longer criticize the things you used to, but instead you look at them for what they are, maybe part of the curse that was given when Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit.

You no longer succumb to criticism and let it bother you if it is baseless because your self esteem is at a godly level and not an earthly level.

You now can recognize the evil that lurks about in the world even in the littlest things in our daily lives.

Your spirit is so sensitive that you bind Satan in the name and by the blood of Jesus when you feel an ungodly thought or emotion trying to manifest itself in your life to instantly take you out of God's will and throw you into a self-willed state of mind or leading.

You now avoid the temptations that you know you are susceptible to, instead of saying to yourself, I can do it, or I can avoid it even when wholly confronted with it.

When you pray for people your prayers are only focused on one thing, and that is that a person who is not saved will get saved
and a person who is saved, but out of God's will, will be brought back into obedience to his word, knowing that God is already aware of their needs and that most things that cause depredation are from our own worldliness and sin.

You have gotten to a point in your spiritual walk where you question God as he leads you. For example, whether to intervene in someones suffering or to let them suffer but just pray that God's will be done because you realize that it's through suffering that we are all refined and brought into a more obedient place in our spiritual walk.

When you see someone suffering you are lead to talk to them about God in a way that either tries to direct them back on course if they're a believer already, or bring them to a point of asking God to come into their lives and save them.

Your prayers are often focused on being able to do God's will and hear his leading, of that still soft voice of the Holy Spirit that's
guiding us.

You have come to realize that you are really saved, and you are weak unless Christ is working through you, and you have your
short comings and you don't criticize yourself for them, but instead ask God for strength when you need it.

You realize that Christ is the strongest when we are the weakest and you realize that everything you do good is an attribute of the Holy Spirit living inside you.

You no longer think you have to do great things in your walk with Christ and you're satisfied with the way God uses you no matter how great or small it maybe at any particular moment in your life.

You have grown to a point where you're not always trying to decipher if you are being obedient, or if God is present in your daily routine and your obedience and your walk is one of spontaneous prayer, and thanks giving for where you are as a saint.

You quit doing so much planning of your life because you realize the more we are in control of our own lives the less the Holy Spirit can lead.

You quit planning every minute of your day and wake up asking God what he has in-store for you today.

You no longer complain about anything, and accept that whatever happens is part of God's will for your life, even when you have
or haven't done your best in a given situation.

You go into any situation saying Lord, while I may not feel the best about doing this, the consequences are up to you because I know you lead me to this point and I will accept whatever happens from here on out because I know there's a greater purpose in your will.

You're no longer scared of stepping into the unknown areas of life, because you realize it's when you do those things, that God manifests Himself in ways you could not have possibly imagined.

You are able to do a spur of the moment change or action when the spirit is leading you.

You are able to look back on your life and recognize where your growth events have taken place and how God has miraculously taken things out of your life that impeded HIS will and your spiritual growth, because you sincerely prayed about them after being convicted about them asking God to remove them or change your way of doing things.

You stop holding grudges and recognize that grudges are nothing but a tool of Satan to get us out of a oneness and union with Christ.

You have stopped worrying about earthly things and the burdens that weigh you down if you don't have a heavenly mind set, and you realize it's not about the responsibility of living, but the insertion of the kingdom of heaven in our lives minute by minute.

You sometimes get excited wondering what God will do next in your life.

You realize the reality of what God's word says in many parts of the bible like John 3:8, 2 Corinthians 12:9, Romans 8:26-28, Ephesians 1:9, John 14:26 and finally 1st Corinthians 2:9-16.

You spend more time meditating on God's word and the spiritual things in your life, and allowing some deep thinking to take place about what your mission is as a believer, and how can you as an individual with certain spiritual gifts, be most useful in the Kingdom without getting in God's way.

You realize that our spiritual witness, our spiritual presence, and our spiritual leading isn't about being a great and significant personality that everyone should recognize. It's about how God uses us behind the scenes, and in the most insignificant ways to usher in His kingdom, and His will in others lives through our useful and obedient humility, and Christ's loving ways that are manifested through us when we are letting God have HIS way in us.


Put God First in Trust. "Jesus did not commit Himself unto them ...
for He knew what was in man."
John 2:24-25

Our Lord trusted no man; yet He was never suspicious, never bitter,

never in despair about any man, because He put God first in trust; He
trusted absolutely in what God's grace could do for any man. If I put my trust in
human beings first, I will end in despairing of everyone;
I will become bitter, because I have insisted on man being what no
man ever can be - absolutely right. Never trust anything but the
grace of God in yourself or in anyone else.

Put God's Needs First. "Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God." Hebrews 10:9

A man's obedience is to what he sees to be a need; Our Lord's obedience was

to the will of His Father. The cry to-day is - "We must
get some work to do; the heathen are dying without God; we must go
and tell them of Him." We have to see first of all that God's needs
in us personally are being met. "Tarry ye until. . . ." The purpose of this
College is to get us rightly related to the needs of God.
When God's needs in us have been met, then He will open the way
for us to realize His needs elsewhere.

Put God's Trust First. "And whoso receiveth one such

little child in my name receiveth Me." Matthew 18:5

God's trust is that He gives me Himself as a babe. God expects my

personal life to be a "Bethlehem." Am I allowing my natural life to
be slowly transfigured by the indwelling life of the Son of God? God's
ultimate purpose is that His Son might be manifested in my mortal flesh.

My hope for you is that you have had a prayer of salvation,
and if you haven't and you want to ask Christ into your heart and life,
then I offer these words for you to repeat,
but only if your heart is sincere,
because God knows it if you're not.


Dear God, I now know I have needed you and have
rejected your calling, so today, right now, 
I ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart and my life, 
and forgive me from all past sin and Lord cleanse me 
from my unrighteousness. I believe that Jesus was 
crucified for my sin, died, and was buried according 
to the scriptures. I want you forever more to be 
my guide and I want to follow you as a believer. 
I ask for your strength to change my heart and 
my earthly ways so that I can become a better 
child in your kingdom. Show me how to depend 
on you in all things. And show me how to do 
your will in my life. I thank you and pray this 
prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
