Walking in Spiritual Alignment With The Lord


 

Out of Spiritual Alignment With The Lord?

When Our prayers are not answered. There is at its core a basic alignment issue. That is you are not in spiritual alignment with the Lord. There are a number of ways that you can be out of alignment. Have you ever driven your car and in an attempt to check the alignment while on a clear, deserted stretch of road, and let the car steer itself for a brief moment? As you well know, a car cannot steer itself for an extended period of time in a straight path. We humans say that our automobiles are in alignment when the car steers on a straight path for a period of a few seconds. If the car cannot perform in this manner; it is out of alignment

Are You Out Of Alignment With The Lord?

Like wise it is impossible for us humans to ever be in perfect alignment with the Lord, because we veer off God's path to the left and to the right and we must check in with Lord for a spiritual alignment. We are human and we must constantly fight to stay in spiritual alignment. Why? because we live in a fallen world and we were born with a sinful nature.

Paul talked extensively about are sinful nature in Galatians 5: 13-26

“13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature ; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other”.

Paul's Message

In the above passage Paul spoke about living under the Law of Sin and Death, that Adam placed us under with Eve when they disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden. Even though we are saved via the New Covenant, sealed by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; we are still subject to acts of sin, that need to be acknowledged and repented to to God on a daily basis. When we are saved by accepting Jesus Christ and Acknowledging that He Died on Calvary for our Sins, and arose three days later and confessing and repenting of our Sins to Jesus. When we acknowledge that Jesus is Lord and the Son of God Almighty, we are saved. No one comes to the Father (God) accept through Jesus Christ.

But our sinful nature still lives with us on a daily basis and giving into the sinful acts, even though we are saved, can put us at odds with God. We need to put ourselves back in alignment by repenting of our sins, “by word, thought and in deed”. Paul gave a partial list of the most prevalent sins that put us out of alignment with the Lord. So we must check on a daily basis and

repent of the sins that we committed just so we will have a spiritual tune-up.

This is so important if you want prayers answered, healing delivered, and you seek to “Walk in The Spirit With The Lord”. Although there is no guarantee that all your prayers will be answered. Only God know if or when he will answer a prayer. If you have an unresolved sin that you have not atoned for ; do your daily repentance through prayer. Not to be saved; because if you have already asked Jesus to come into your life and asked for forgiveness your are saved. Daily repentance is insure that you are in Spiritual Alignment with the Lord so that “You will Walk in Spirit With The Lord”.
