Galatians 4:19 “My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you”
I have the most amazing news. You are pregnant. When you invited Jesus into your heart to be your Lord and Savior was the very moment you were divinely conceived. This life that has been deposited and entrusted to you in seed form is your divine potential. It is the singular task of the Holy Spirit to walk with you and guide you in the proper care and development of this “new creation life”. Just as in the natural there are important steps to care for and nurture the life that is being formed in you. The first thing of course is “don’t smoke” (don’t breathe in the polluted air of the natural realm). Your treasure is where your heart is and that is within so guard your eye and ear gate and be careful what you allow in because “everything” you choose to allow in has an impact on your spiritual health. “don’t drink” (don’t become intoxicated with this world). When you are awakened and begin to care for this inner life, it won’t go unnoticed by the enemy of our faith. All that the world has will be offered to you in many forms to entice you to abandon the life within. For this life to be “fully formed” (100 fold) you must “say no” to the things and people that would be harmful to the development of His life. “Watch what you eat” (feed your spirit). Only allow in that which is of eternal value. “Make time” to prepare and feast on the word. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirits promptings on when and what you are to receive. “Say No” to those people and things that would interrupt this feeding schedule. “Exercise” (develop your spiritual gifts). As the life in your “spirit womb” matures you must react to its movements and take time to enjoy the intimacy of these moments. “Get Rest” (enter into the Lords rest). The only environment that will allow you to carry this life “to term” (fully mature Son) is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Press in and enter in to this “secret place” of union and communion. Become one with “the One” that lives inside of you until you lose your identity in Him and only, He is seen and heard.
