YOU’RE READY FOR EVERY OCCASION

Dearest brethren,

1 Sam 10:6-8  Then the Spirit of the LORD will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.  NKJV

That is powerful right there.  This is what God said to Saul through the prophet Samuel.  He told him to go ahead and do what the occasion demands when the Spirit of God comes upon him for “God is with you”.  You and I as new covenant sons of God who are in Christ have it even better.  With Saul, the king and other Old Testament saints, the Holy Spirit would come and go, come and go.  But for us, when we come into Christ, we become united with God Almighty Himself.  (1 Cor. 6:17) This was the crowning achievement of our Lord Jesus Christ and His whole purpose of coming to earth was to unite us with the Father so that the life of God, His power and grace may flow through us.  He gave us the divine life; His own divine nature.  We ceased to be just human but are now actually superhuman and supernatural.  The Spirit of God is not merely with us (now and then) but permanently in us not just to sit there dormant nor for us to enjoy Him by ourselves but to flow into our bodies and out of us to others.

We have therefore already been turned into another man for the Bible says that if anyone be in Christ, he or she is a brand new creature that never existed before.  (2 Cor. 5:17) We’re now consistently indwelled by the Holy Spirit.  We’ve already been loaded with everything our Lord Jesus was loaded with.  Everything God put in Jesus, it was so He could put it in us. Wherever we are and wherever we go, people should experience God because His life

in us permeates out of us.  Whenever the occasion demands, you and I are always ready to do what needs to be done.  We can manifest God any time.  Whenever there are chaos, we bring peace and joy because we’ve got the goods.  Wherever people are sick, we bring healing as we put our faith in the greater One in us.  The same life the Father has we have it for Jesus gave it to us, and we can give it to whoever needs it as the occasion demands.  (John 5:26, 21)

You may not mentally or emotionally ‘feel’ like you’re ready, but you’re ready because you’re united with God and His life is resident in your spirit waiting to be used.  In fact, the Holy Spirit in you, one of His names is Standby.  He’s standing by in you waiting to move.  You’re not waiting on Him, He’s waiting on you!  He’s ready, willing and waiting to flow out of you as soon as you make a demand in faith and step out and do it.

You have to remember that the people of the Old Testament were unregenerate and only had the presence of God and salvation as a credit before our Lord Jesus Christ paid the price on the cross.  You and I have it far better on this side of the cross, the resurrection and the coming of the Holy Spirit.  We carry resurrection power in us.  Brethren, go and do as the occasion demands for GOD IS IN YOU!
