“Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;” Romans 12:11 (KJV)
Having the ability to live an overcoming life has a correlation with the condition of your spirit. You have to condition your spirit to live in continual victory every day. The opening scripture provides us with the key to living an overcoming life in Christ Jesus. The key is to have a fervent spirit when serving the Lord. The enemy will surely fight the zeal we had when we first were born again. He will throw many things at us, hoping to turn away our attention from Christ Jesus. Never allow him to. Step up in the areas of prayer, fasting, praise, meditation on the Word, declaration of the Word, and thanksgiving, and your spirit will stay aglow.
Believer, remember that your labor in the Lord will not be in vain (1 Corinthians 15:58). This should motivate you to stir up joy in your heart to continually serve the Lord with zeal every day till you join Him in glory (Proverbs 15:15). Hallelujah! Be an overcomer!
Prayer Point: Dear Holy Spirit, thank you for stirring my heart today with joy to continually serve the Lord with zeal. Amen!
