Sometimes we are so earthly minded were no heavenly good!
When we allow our flesh (emotions/personal will) to rule our lives we are walking according to the world. This has been a great battle in all of our lives. As my friend Terry Teykl says,”We must learn to pray without kicking the dog.” It seems there is something that is always in the way. Something the enemy is always putting on our minds which brings distraction. This activates our emotional realm of our minds which is the fleshly realm. God desires us to place our emotions aside and walk by faith.
When you are led by the Spirit (spiritually minded/mind set on things above) you are walking in Kingdom. To me this is looking beyond ourselves and into the heavenly realm. Living as Jesus would have us live. Jesus said, “Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.” John 5:19. Jesus was looking into the heavenly realm and imitating His Heavenly Father, now we must do likewise. We are to have a heavenly mindset of looking into the heavenly realm and seeing what Jesus does and do it. This is exactly how I pray for others. I look and I see Jesus touch them - then I touch them; He comforts them, then I comfort them, and He blesses them - then I bless them. It is just a way of bringing Heaven to Earth!
"For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit."
Romans 8:5 NKJV
It’s time for us to have a heavenly mindset so we can bring heaven to earth. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
