“For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.”
There is a profound difference in Prayer occurring, the Father is asking, what is influencing our prayers. He is asking, “If your eyes are always on Me, and you only speak and do what I have said, then what am I calling you to say.?”
When we pray from the circumstances of our problems or predicaments, they are not of Spirit. If we pray because of what we are seeing than our prayers are not of Spirit. Only when we pray what the Father is calling us to say will our prayers be Spirit. So what then does it mean when we pray from a position other than Spirit? It means that we are speaking flesh and inviting it to rule over us. Because we have placed the value of our prayer in the natural and wonder why the super natural isn’t taking place. When we pray from a position other than Spirit we are exalting ourselves and our words and our minds above that of the Father.
So what then, in this season of trial, crucifixion of flesh, temptation, etc.? Our eyes should remain focused on the Father. He knows what we need before we have need of it. Therefore, our prayers of the Spirit will prepare us for the future. We can not pray from a position of flesh while seated In the heavenly places of the saints. Our Father is continually calling us upward, let us only speak what the Father commands and let us only do what the Father has done.
Guard your mouth for life and death flow from it.
