Guarantee Creates Inner Certainty
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.” Jeremiah 17:7
In a man’s world we call it “walking tall.” God wants every believer walking tall (like David) in the Spirit. The solution is to internalize versus intellectualize the guarantee and confidence the Holy Spirit exists to provide. With that goal in mind, the simplest way to manifest the presence of the Holy Spirit is by speaking the truth of Scripture into the moments that call for courage and confidence. It looks like this: the Word of Truth joins with the Spirit of Truth and faith in God joins with words of God, openly believed and spoken, to produce the power of God. Join your faith with the Holy Spirit and repeat out loud the following.
The creed of the Guaranteed: God has prepared me — The Holy Spirit is in me — nothing can stop me — God is for me — Because HE will redeem me.
God wants us to practice reminding ourselves of spiritual truth on a moment to moment basis. The purpose of this exercise is to connect you with truth. God wants you to be inwardly certain and fully confident of the Holy Spirit’s presence right now. The reason I asked you to recite this creed is because being certain of the Holy Spirit’s presence is not an intellectual exercise, it is a spiritual and experiential reality which produces a real living and emotional validation of truth inside and this is what you just did. He promised he would fill you. Don’t depend on feelings. It’s God and His word. It’s His promise. Believe it.
Father, your Spirit lives within me, I will act on it because you promised.
