“That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” John 3:6
Being born of the Spirit, you must learn to walk in Him so that you are not drowned by the world and its ways. Fish is born inside water and so cannot survive outside it. Birds are born to fly and can only thrive when they are flying, not when they are hopping. We are born of the Spirit so we thrive when we walk in Him.
Open Heaven 17 July 2020: [Friday] – Walk in the Spirit
When an eagle wants to kill a land animal, it takes it to the air. That is its territory. In the same way, you cannot win the world by using its principles; that the battle to the spiritual realm. While you do all that is required in the physical to succeed in life, engage in the spirit realm to win in the battles of your life.
Think in the Spirit. Many of our thoughts leave out the Holy Spirit and thus limit our success. If you always put God in the equation, everything becomes possible. To walk in the Spirit, you must always be attentive to what He is saying at all times. You must ask the Holy Spirit for directions before you take any step. Before you speak, ask Him to give you utterance. Anyone who will walk in the Spirit must pray in tongues regularly; you must also sing in the Holy Spirit (1st Corinthians 14:15).

The basic secret of progress is consistency. If you will walk in the Spirit, then you must consistently be close to Him. You can’t decided to follow His lead when you are in trouble and then go your own way when you think everything is fine. If you want to walk in the Spirit, then you must surrender completely to Him, whether it is convenient or not.
Key Point:Having the Spirit of God gives you an advantage over the people of the world; use that advantage wisely. Open Heaven Daily Devotional Lessons was written by Pastor E.A.
