Daily Bread 6/27/2022


Daily Bread – June 27, 2022 (The Second Day – Genesis 1:6-8) 1 Corinthians 12:8-9 – For through the Spirit is given a word of wisdom, and by another a word of knowledge according to the Spirit. By another, faith by the Spirit; and another, gifts of healings by the one Spirit. Healing is at the forefront of the realms of the spiritual. God’s will is that every one of those who are called by His Name eagerly desire the spiritual: “Pursue love, and eagerly desire the spiritual – and especially that you may prophesy” (1 Corinthians 14:1). The ‘spiritual’ is the realm of the anointing where we learn to yield to the operation of the Holy Spirit in the functioning of the ‘charismata’ of signs and wonders (1 Corinthians 2:13). We are to live consecrated lives to the realm of the spiritual in which the Holy Spirit leads us and guides us into all truth. In this realm, God perfects everything concerning us, and teaches us to love righteousness and hate iniquity. In this realm, we learn to let His rivers of life dominate us and flow out of us. In this realm of glory, we are overwhelmed with a compassion for the needs of others, and filled with the zeal of the Lord to see God’s will done in this Earth. The manifestations of the Spirit that flow out of this spiritual realm have been made available to every person. Furthermore, God has commanded us to greatly desire every expression of this realm (1 Corinthians 12:7). The one special grace, or charismata, that was expressed above all other gifts in the life of Jesus on Earth was the gift of healing. God has predestinated every one of us who will comply with His will and be obedient to His Word to function in this gift in a greater way than He did (John 14:12). The gift of healing is available for you, and God wants you to be eager to function in it. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
