Days of Holiness ~ Day 23: True Spirituality

“If you listen to the Word
and don’t live out the message you hear,
you become like the person who looks in the mirror of the Word
to discover the reflection of his face in the beginning.
You perceive how God sees you in the mirror of the Word,
but then you go out and forget your divine origin.
But those who set their gaze deeply
into the perfecting law of liberty
are fascinated by and respond to the truth
they hear and are strengthened by it —
they experience God’s blessing in all that they do!

If someone believes they have a relationship with God
but fails to guard his words, then his heart is drifting away
and his religion is shallow and empty.

True spirituality that is pure in the eyes of our Father God
is to make a difference in the lives of the orphans,
and widows in their troubles, and to refuse to be corrupted by the world’s values.”
~ James 1:23-27 (TPT)

James teaches us to be doers of ‘the Word’ — the law of liberty which is referred to as ‘the royal law of love.’ Love is action, and it is the ministry of true spirituality. This ministry of love in action has been given to the Church, to bring love and to act on behalf of those who have no protection or provision — this includes the little ones conceived and rejected, to be cast aside through abortion. We are those who carry the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, to bring comfort to the widows who have no husbands to support and love them. To bring help and hope of life abundant, and eternal life.

We have words of hope and life to release the ones who feel shame and rejection; our words will represent the Father’s heart of love and forgiveness. We create with our words the environment for little ones to thrive. This is pure spirituality in our Father’s eyes — to make a difference in the lives of the fatherless and the comfortless.

We the church have looked into God’s Word and are fascinated by all that He has done for us — He set us free from sin and death; He made the New Covenant sealed in the blood of His Son. We are called to the royal law of love to make a difference, and be beacons of hope in the lives of those who find themselves with unplanned pregnancies and those who have no parental or spousal help.

Let us Pray:
Father, we thank You for the gift of life through Your Son Yeshua — we are in awe of You! Lord, let us today look into Your Word afresh, and be doers of Your royal law of love, and not just hearers. Lord, breathe fresh life into the dry bones of Your Church, and cause her to arise in such love and action that the works of darkness lose their grip.

Lord, identify in our world those who are planning an abortion, and pour out Your Holy Spirit through us to bring hope and practical solutions to those people. Lord, renew the zeal of our previous generations in us, to be those who provide a way out to protect the unborn. Send Your Holy Fire through our parliaments, and destroy and defeat every bill and legislation that is written to abort future generations.

Lord, equip us to guard our words so they are holy and powerful, to build up and tear down. Cleanse our lips again today and align our hearts with Your heart of the restoration of all things. Lord, we declare a removal of all mind-blinding spirits, and shift the culture of SA Lower House parliamentarians who will vote on the Termination of Pregnancy Bill 2020 — may they feel Your holy law of love deep in their bones and be convicted to do Your will — bless them to choose life for the unborn by voting No to this Bill. Lord, send a multitude of Your Holy Angels to accompany everyone on the Walk for Life on February 6th, and may the angels take up the warfare over Adelaide to release life to SA and right across our nation. In Jesus’, Yeshua’s Precious and Holy Name we pray, Amen.

Abundant grace to you as we continue in prayer and fasting according to Mark 9:29 ~

He answered them, “This type of powerful spirit can only be cast out by fasting and prayer.”

Points for Prayer ~ pray for:

  • South Australia’s Lower House politicians, that they be infused with truth and light for the sanctity of life – even of the unborn. Pray for a majority to vote no to this bill and take courage to defeat the Termination of Pregnancy Bill 2020 the week of Feb 3rd 2021.
  • The Walk for Life, February 6th 2021 in Adelaide, South Australia.
  • For our future generations to be rescued from the horror of death through abortion!
    Let the spirit of adoption enter the hearts of those considering abortion,
    to carry to full term and save their child’s life.
  • For greater numbers of believers in Jesus all over Australia and the South Pacific region to awaken to the battle and stand for life — to rise up in wisdom and courage to take action needed and speak for the voiceless.
  • For the church to become a haven of hope and help for those with unplanned pregnancies.

To send the intended influential message to our politicians
that South Australians DO NOT want legalised abortion up to birth,
we need thousands of people on the WALK for LIFE!

It will take each of us to SPREAD THE WORD through all our networks!
