I John 2:15-17
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[a] is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
Scripturally when we talk about Divine Visitation, we talk about God’s intervention in the history of humanity.
The Flesh is in real war against the Spirit. To have divine visitation, we must allow the Holy Spirit to fight against the flesh. We cannot be victorious, and we cannot receive God’s visitation when our flesh controls us. It is the flesh that pushes us into:
- Sexual immorality
- Impure thoughts
- Eagerness for lustful pleasure
- Participation in demonic activities
- Outbursts of anger
- Selfish ambition
- The feeling that everyone is wrong except those in your own little group
- Wild parties, and other kinds of sin.
When we win the war against the flesh, we will experience divine visitation. God requires a surrendered life. When we surrender our lives to the Lord, we allow the Holy Spirit to work on us. To overcome living in sin, you must allow the Holy Spirit to work in you.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. (Matthew 5:8)
Prayer: Lord help me to surrender totally to you, May I present myself in a way that I may receive your divine visitation. Amen
