Beloved, are you dancing in the Lord? Yes! I am dancing in the Lord every day. Yes! it is good to Praise the Lord alleluia! do you agree with me? Rejoicing gives you strength to go through any situation in life. If your heart is merry, nothing will make you sad even when you ought because you are high in spirit, therefore you are above that situation. Do I have a witness in the house?

Apostle Paul  said “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; speaking to Yourself in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; giving thank always for all things unto God and the Father in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ…(Eph 5:18-20).

Beloved, when the power that rise Christ from death dwells in you then your Spirit man rejoices as nothing will be more than having God dwelling inside of you. Praise the Lord.

Each time I remember that God is so loving and so kind; I cannot but be grateful to Him. Have you seen cruelty? If you have then you will appreciate God the more, especially when it is coming from the quarters you least expected, is horrible and unthinkable, you will never want to have anything to do with such group persons, individual or organization. Praise the Lord.

Thank God for the gift of the Holy Spirit in the wake of a new dawn, is a great gift if you ask me. Without the power of the Holy Spirit upon our lives, we will not please God. Yes! We will not please God because a carnal man can never please God. Beloved, you can never please God in your flesh, Praise Lord! But with the help of the Holy Spirit, we will not only please God, will also be counted among His children. Praise the Lord!

Our God is good, our God is good, our God is good, He is so good to us. The Psalmist said “When You send Your spirit, they are created, and You renew the face of the earth” (Ps 104:30). Father, renew the face of the earth even as You create us anew. Amen!!!

Beloved, this promise has been doing wonders in my life, what about you? Are you bouncing in the Lord every day? I am! Praise the Lord! Since the beginning of the year, there has not been a better yesterday. The Spirit of God has been at my side comforting and directing my ways.

I want you to know that you can never be same having receive the touch of God. The apostles and disciples of old are living witnesses and in our time there are diverse testimonies among brethren about the outpouring of the Holy Spirit personally and in revivals.

The Holy Spirit will lead you in the right directions and you will never miss your ways as depict our topic today. Praise the Lord!

Beloved, this is our last topic in this series for now except by Divine orchestration we are led to discuss it more.

Save this series and refer to it whenever you need to remind yourself what you have learnt.

Come on with us as we discover more about manifestations of a life lead by the Holy Spirit:

Jeremiah 3:1-4:31, Psalm 119:17-20, Proverbs 24:26-27, Colossians 1:21-2:15

In the Right Direction

We proclaim Him, warning and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone mature in Christ.—Colossians 1:28

In the Spirit-controlled life, self is still there, but now it is not self-centered but God-centered, and therefore, rhythmic and harmonious. “Perfect function,” said a famous doctor, “is perfect health.” The self functions perfectly and is, therefore, perfectly healthy; it is a self you can live with. The sex drive is still there, but now, being God-centered, it functions as God intended it to function. If one is married, then it can be expressed in a physical relationship, but if one is unmarried, then it can be refined and channeled into creativity in other directions. The herd instinct is still there, but now it is fastened on the kingdom of God, and one moves with the rest of the church toward the unity of the faith and of the Spirit.

The life of the Spirit is not one of asceticism but one of assertion. We get rid of unacceptable desires in the only way possible, by replacing them with higher desires. We get rid of self-centeredness by God-centeredness, through surrender. We get rid of sex domination by surrendering the drive to God and the controls He places upon it, so that sex serves us and makes us creative in the whole of life—not just within the physical relationship of marriage. We get rid of the herd dominance by surrender to God and, when surrendered, we love people more because we are no longer dominated or intimidated by them. The expulsive power of a new affection casts out “lower loves” by focusing them on higher objectives.


Holy Spirit, I am beginning to learn that when You have control, everything is a perfect cosmos; when I have control, it is chaos. As life is for living, I want to live it to the brim. Help me not just to surrender, but to stay surrendered. Amen.

Further Study

Heb 6; Mt 5:48; 2Co 13:11

What did Paul mean by “perfection”?

What was Paul’s desire?

Did you read that “you focus now on high objectives” rather than “lover loves.” Everything about you will be on how to please God when you are God- centered rather than when you are self-centered. Praise the Lord!

Unacceptable desires like we read in Gal 5:19-21: Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,) Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Your desires will be channel into God’s plans and purposes for your life and also manifesting the fruit of the Spirit against such there is no law- Galatians 5:22-23 –But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Beloved, join us to sing this song to the glory of God!

We are going higher, we are going higher, we are going higher, higher, higher ever day exceeding grace. We are going higher, we are going higher, we are going higher, higher, higher ever day exceeding grace.

According to your confession, may the Lord grant unto you in Jesus Name. having been sent into the right direction never turn back to the world anymore!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
