Review: How To Effortlessly Flow in the Holy Spirit
Flowing in the Holy Spirit is much more simple than most people have been taught. Many people try to get the Spirit “to come down” or release the anointing, but being in the Spirit is simply being born again by belief in Jesus. Romans 8:9 tells us “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.” When you believe in Jesus, and that you are completely forgiven from all of your sins, you are born again and receive the Spirit of God. You are no longer under the law and relying on the flesh, instead you believe you are completely forgiven. Joseph Prince often says the law is about “doing right.” The Spirit is about “believing right.”
Knowing what a spirit is will help people understand what it means to live or flow in the Holy Spirit. Thayer’s Greek Lexicon describes a spirit as the very breath of someone, or the vital principle by which the body is animated. A spirit is the power by which a human being feels, thinks, wills and decides. In other words, the spirit is the very core of that person. It is the very character or belief system that influences a person. When we say, “That person has a great spirit,” we are usually complementing that person’s positive attitude, or joy in which that person operates. So the Holy Spirit is the very character of the Father and Christ Jesus, which they operate from.
The Holy Spirit is not mystical and difficult to understand. All you have to do is look at how Jesus operated on earth. In Luke 9, the disciples asked Jesus if He wanted them to pray down fire and judgment on the unbelieving Samaritans. Jesus rebuked them in Luke 9:55-56 saying, “Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” The disciples were still operating from a spirit of law and judgment in the Old Testament. Jesus came to save mankind, not judge them.
So flowing in the Holy Spirit is being completely immersed in the character of Jesus. It is believing that God no longer deals with us based on our own efforts; but believing He deals with us as joint-heirs with Christ Jesus. The very nature that moves the Father is His goodness, mercy and compassion. He will never deal with a believer in judgment ever again. So when we focus on how much the Father loves us, and realize we are completely innocent, righteous, and precious in His eyes, we are flowing in the Spirit or nature of God. That belief that we are one with Christ will produce the very nature of God in our lives. When we live by the spirit we are simply believing the right thing; this will produce the fruit of the Spirit. When we live in the flesh we are trying to do the right thing in order to please God; this will always produce the works of the flesh.
You are completely innocent, forgiven, loved and favored by our Father. When He looks at you He sees Jesus, and will move heaven and earth to protect you, comfort you and provide for you. When you believe you are one with Jesus and His character, you are flowing in the Holy Spirit. It produces the life of Christ Jesus effortlessly through you. When you believe right, you will effortlessly flow in the Holy Spirit. Praise God!
