Since you are passionate to be led by the Spirit, you are ALREADY manifesting the Spirit! You probably are not aware of how easily and often you release words of wisdom and knowledge, prophecy, discerning of spirits, gifts of healings and the rest of the ninefold manifestation. For example, instead of thinking, “Wow, I just had a great idea drop into my mind,” it would be more biblical for you to be thinking, “God, thank You for that word of knowledge.”
The lifestyle of honoring the flow of the Holy Spirit Who lives within (Jn. 7:37-39) is much easier than the lifestyle of wrinkling my brow and trying to figure everything out. Christian spirituality is simple. We live like children (Matt. 18:3). We live in playfulness, faith, intuition and gratitude toward the God Who is with us, in us, and providing us with all things (Rom. 8:32).
