Keith Miller: What Does It Look Like To Walk In the Fullness of the Holy Spirit?

Keith MillerDear friends,

What does it look like to walk in the fullness of the Holy Spirit? Can you imagine the day when the Body of Christ rises up in maturity walking in the full stature of Christ Jesus? This day will come! This day is not just a dream or a nice idea – it is a reality!

The Holy Spirit's desire is that we live every day in the fullness of the Lord, by seeing above and beyond what we can do, and that Jesus would receive glory and honor through His great power that works in us and through us. This is the essence of what Paul writes about in Ephesians 3:20-21: "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the Church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen!"

I encourage you to believe that the Lord will release to you a revelation of the unlimited realm of the great ministry and fullness of the Holy Spirit in and through your life. Get ready! Ask the Holy Spirit to open your spiritual eyes and ears to see the invisible and to hear what He is saying to the Church in this season of history. Ask Him to open up the depths of the Word to His people and to reveal the secret things of the Kingdom so that we can walk in greater dimension of victory and thus be able to shift the course of history toward the fulfillment of God's ultimate purpose.

This spiritual dynamic that flows into us daily is the witness of the reality of the Holy Spirit's power to the masses of humanity. The unlimited anointing that the Lord is pouring out will reveal an even greater understanding of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. This will plunge the Church into the river, which is widening the banks of spiritual realities and creating a tremendous overflow that will extend into the marketplaces of the world.

As we press into this present-day empowering and equipping for the effective working of His power in and through us on a day-to-day basis, we need to live in a place of perpetual fresh oil – the fresh anointing of His Wonderful Presence, to be a blazing lamp in the midst of the darkness of our day, that we would see the ever-increasing expansion of His Kingdom, not just in Word but also in demonstration. We must flow out of His Word and His presence and draw from the flow of His Spirit if we are to see impact in every area of this life that surrounds us.

Are you ready to be even more aggressive in the area of faith, to see the impossible become possible, for great and mighty things to take place? This is not a time to be fearful but to be strong in the Lord in His power and might. Charles Spurgeon said once that he never passed a single quarter of an hour in his waking moments without a distinct consciousness of the presence of the Lord. When the Spirit fills the heart, so does His power, grace, and direction; the face of Jesus is vividly and evidently near.

Be encouraged! Dive deeper every day. Continue onward and upward, and never stop advancing. Every mountain has a mountain peak.

Richest blessings in Him, our Lord, Christ Jesus!
