Reset – Part 5

Brother Kenneth Copeland speaking on what the Lord shared with him about 2022:

“In 2022, you’ll know what to do.”

“2022 will be an extraordinary year of correction, direction, protection, and perfection – in spirit, soul, and body; in finances; in churches; and in government.”

God wants 2022 to be an extraordinary year for you and your household!

  • Extraordinary – very unusual or remarkable, above and beyond what is expected.

For 2022 to be an extraordinary year it will require you to…

  1. Believe fearlessly.
  2. Live intentionally.
  3. You are going to have to show up.
  4. Associate strategically.
  5. Commit faithfully.
  6. Embrace new opportunity.
  7. Trust God completely.
  8. Know what the will of God is for your life.
How To Become More Spiritually Sensitive
  1. Give the Word of God first place.

This means that the Word has final authority in your life above what you see, feel, or hear.

God gave us our five physical senses and they are great as long as they don’t contradict the Word of God. The moment that they do contradict the Word, you must choose to go with the Word instead of what they say to you.

(Psalms 138:2 AMP) I will worship toward Your holy temple and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness; for You have exalted above all else Your name and Your word and You have magnified Your word above all Your Name!

Don’t let the Word of God be an afterthought or the LAST RESORT! Make it the first thing you go to.

  1. Meditate in the Word of God.

(Joshua 1:8 AMP) This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.

The Word of God shall not depart out of your mouth…

To meditate means to ponder, to mutter or speak to yourself.

If you ever want to do anything great in life, if you ever want to amount to anything in life, take time to meditate in the Word of God.

  1. Practice the Word of God

We have many “talkers of the Word,” and even “rejoicers about the Word,” but there aren’t very many “Doers of the Word.”

(James 1:22-25 GNB) (22) Do not deceive yourselves by just listening to his word; instead, put it into practice.  (23)  If you listen to the word, but do not put it into practice you are like people who look in a mirror and see themselves as they are.  (24)  They take a good look at themselves and then go away and at once forget what they look like.  (25)  But if you look closely into the perfect law that sets people free, and keep on paying attention to it and do not simply listen and then forget it, but put it into practice—you will be blessed by God in what you do.

Begin the practice being a doer of the Word by doing in all circumstances what the Word tells you to do.

  1. Instantly obey the voice of your spirit (conscience).

The human spirit has a voice. We call this our conscience.

Sometimes we call it an intuition or an inner voice. The world calls it a hunch.

As you give your newborn spirit the privilege of meditating on the Word of God, the Word becomes its source of information. Your spirit will become strong and the inward voice of your conscience, educated and fed by the Word will become a true guide. We always put the Word first and therefore our spirit becomes an authoritative guide.

This is a process that takes time to learn.

  1. Spend time praying in other tongues.
    • You are speaking directly to God.

(1 Corinthians 14:2 NKJV) For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.

    • You are speaking and praying divine secrets.

(1 Corinthians 14:2 MOFFAT) For he who speaks in a ‘tongue’ addresses God not men; no one understands him; he is talking of divine secrets in the Spirit.

    • Your mind grows quiet because you are praying out of your spirit.

(1 Corinthians 14:14 NKJV) 14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.

    • You are built up.

(1 Corinthians 14:4a NKJV) 4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself…

Edifies – oikodomeō; from G3620b; to build a house

    • You pray by the Holy Spirit, the perfect will of God for your life.

(Romans 8:26-27 NKJV) Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (27) Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

(Romans 8:27 TPT) God, the searcher of the heart, knows fully our longings, yet he also understands the desires of the Spirit, because the Holy Spirit passionately pleads before God for us, his holy ones, in perfect harmony with God’s plan and our destiny.
