The enemy of our souls wants us operating by a wrong spirit.
Instead of operating by the Holy Spirit the flesh will often operate from other spirits.
There are many “different spirits” but I would like to highlight three this week:
- Critical spirit
- Offended spirit
- Religious spirit
A Critical spirit is a “fault-finding” spirit rooted in pride that disguises itself as “discernment”.
The Holy Spirit will bring conviction but a Critical spirit brings condemnation.
An Offended spirit is a “wounded” spirit that lives in confused hurt and pain.
The Holy Spirit is quick to forgive and trust, but an Offended spirit walks in suspicious distrust.
A Religious spirit is a “works based” spirit that lives in slavery to performance.
The Holy Spirit develops sonship in the finished work of grace found in Jesus, while a Religious spirit lives under the torment of never doing enough in the flesh.
This C.O.R. spirit will steal away a Spirit-led life.
