TGIF Today God Is First

“So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my mind; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my mind.1 Corinthians 14:15

How real is the spiritual realm? My lawyer friend from Nigeria tells a personal story of how he was preparing for an important case. He knew that he must be prepared to argue five separate points. He was to appear before his country’s supreme court, so it was a very important case.

As he neared the time in which he was to go to court, he began to pray about how he was to argue the case. He spent much time in legal preparation and intercessory prayer. As he went to court, the Spirit spoke to him and said, “Do not argue point one, point two, point three, or point four. Only argue point five.” Imagine my friend‘s struggle of faith. If he were reading this wrong, the shame and professional fallout would be devastating.

The time had come to present the case before the judge when my friend said, “Judge, I wish to withdraw points one through four. I wish to argue only point five.” The opposing counsel stood up and objected. “Your honor, he cannot do that!” “Objection overruled, counsel,” said the judge.

My friend went on to present his case around point five only, and then sat down. When the opposing counsel stood to present his case, he stood speechless for 12 minutes. He could not get a word out of his mouth. He finally mumbled a few words and complained to the judge that he was going to have to yield. It seems that the opposing counsel had prepared to argue only points one through four, but failed to prepare for point five. The judge ruled in favor of my friend.

The unseen Lord wants to help us in the physical realm of our work life. We must acknowledge His presence and tap into this incredible resource He has given to each of us. Seek Him today and ask Him to reveal His perfect plan for you this day.

  6. It would seem that our brethren in what were once thought “backward” countries know more of the Spirit working in lives than do we in the so-called “advanced” nations. There are numerous accounts of the Spirit speaking to individuals and amazing things happening as they respond. I’ve heard and read many amazing happenings in China and other Asian countries, and especially so with Christians in Moslem lands. I believe we have become much too dependent on “things” and fail to take hold of all that is provided for us in Christ.
