Reject Fear. Be Filled With The Holy Spirit – Laura Bon
And you shall know the truth ie the word ,the Spirit and Jesus. The Holy Spirit gives truth and wisdom. He reveals the written word and makes it make sense.
By the Holy Spirit the meaning of the word will be revealed to you and truth will fill your soul.
The Holy Spirit reveals Jesus to you and glorifies Jesus. Jesus is both the word of God and the glory of God.
The truth that you know and walk in will set you free.
It is possible to know the truth and refuse to discipline yourself and walk in it.
And you shall know the truth and truth that you know and walk in will surely set you free. Amen 🙏
1 Corinthians 2:15 GNT
Whoever has the Spirit, however, is able to judge the value of everything, but no one is able to judge him.
It is only by the power and wisdom of the Holy Spirit that you can correctly judge the value of things.
The more of the Holy Spirit that you have, the more you will see worldly/sinful pleasures as nothing and forsake them.
The more you are filled with the Holy Spirit, the more you will value heavenly things and the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is the one that will make you not judge Christ like the world. He will make you love the word of God and cherish every word that comes out of the mouth of God.
The Holy Spirit will make you value the will of God above all worldly things and pleasures. That is the true wisdom that comes from the Holy Spirit.
Seek God’s Kingdom first. God rewards those who diligently seek Him. God is the author and giver of wealth. The earth and all its fullness belongs to Him.
Focus on pleasing God first and do not break the word of God or hurt others because of money. Also pray for God to meet all your needs according to His riches in glory. Jesus is the high priest that meets all our needs. God wants to bless you but do not worship money, worship God!
1 Timothy 6:10 – ESV
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
Do not get emotionally attached to someone who is not committed to you. Do not fall in love foolishly and carelessly. Apply caution and always protect your heart and emotional wellbeing.
You are not helpless. Cling to God and His word and always pray to God for help, and let the Holy Spirit lead you. Avoid unnecessary heartbreak. Do not allow selfish hunters deplete and drain you in relationships that are abusive and devoid of love.

Anytime you are praying and you notice
You feel overwhelmed
You get spiritual attacks
You feel anxious
You are worried
You are stressed
You are sad
You are agitated
You are tired
You are discouraged
It means that you are not praying right. Your focus is wrong
Switch to praise, worship and thanksgiving. Start thanksgiving God for all He has done for you resorcially His blood that set you free. Focus on the greatness of God and the littleness of your problem.
Shift your focus to God not self or problems. Once your focus is on God and His ability, you will be joyful as you pray.
God wants you to pray with calm, joy and gratitude
The Israelites were broken by the cruel slavery and bondage, and they cried out to God for help
Their spirits were broken. It’s called trauma.
Whatever you think about or experience for a long time goes into your spirit
If you pray for a long time, your spirit picks it up and starts praying.
Learn how to offer petition, supplication, and request to God. Ask and you will receive. You have not because you ask not
The same with praise, worship, confession, bible reading, and thanksgiving
Ask God from your heart and pray from your heart,
Cry for a long time persistently and let your cry or prayer become loud
Heart cry is the heart prayer that has gone into your spirit and your spirit is now talking to God spirit to spirit
We are spirits, so we need to be spiritual men and women
