SATURDAY, MARCH 12
Scripture: Romans 8:14
Romans 8:14 says, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” The leadership of the Spirit is what Paul relied on to bring triumph to every situation. He encountered a demon possessed, fortune-telling lady who made her masters much profit proclaiming that these were the servants of the Lord, that they would declare the way of salvation. Paul put up with it for many days. He did not cast that spirit out until he was released by the Holy Spirit to do so. Triumph for the girl meant jail for Paul. Triumphing over the familiar spirit proved to be the end of Paul’s ministry in that region. The Holy Spirit knew how long it would take to get the church established. Therefore, Paul put up with it for many days while the church was being established. Once it was established, he could address it and prepare to move on. Even in the Philippian jail, Paul proved triumph by following the Spirit into worship and praise. The angel came in an earthquake and opened the doors of the prison. The God of heaven wants every single one of us to triumph and manifest that triumph in every place we go. Is it not time we start? We begin by renewing our mind and thinking like Paul thought.
