READ: Revelation 2:11-14
“Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;” - 2 Peter 2:15
I think that the spirit that dominates many of us ministers is the spirit of Balaam. The spirit of Balaam is a common kind of anointing found in ministers today. It is a baffling mixture of spiritual gifts and the love of money. These ministers have wonderful genuine gifts that draw crowds and bless many thousands. Amazingly, these heavily gifted persons also have an easy-to-see love for money, popularity and power.
The influence of the spirit of Balaam and the influence of the spirit of the world have replaced the influence of the Holy Spirit in the church today. This is easy to see from the emphases that our ministries have. Pray for the influence of the Holy Spirit on your life and ministry.
When the spirit of the world is upon you, you have visions of the earthly riches that you could have. You are filled with the desire for earthly power. When the spirit of the world is upon you, you have visions of your hopes in the world of business and riches. Pray that you will be under the sweet influence of the Holy Spirit. The sweet influences of the Holy Spirit on the eyes of your heart will cause you to see visions of the hope of your calling.
You will have visions of the spiritual riches of glory that you possess. You will also know the greatness of the power of God that is released towards you.
Start your day with a blessing from the WORD!!!
STAY CONNECTED AND PROSPER.
