The inspired life

The world has robbed us!  To be more specific the devil has robbed us.  The bible says that the theif comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy.  But Jesus says He came that we may have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10) There is a mindset in most of us that keeps us from living the inspired life.  A inspired life is a life that is breathed upon by the Holy Spirit.  However, the world has planted some seeds in our hearts about what life should be that keeps us from being able to live the inspired life that Jesus died to give us.  The world says we have to work for the "inspired life"  but God says it is Him who works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure.  The amplified bible reads the following:

Philippians 2:13

Amplified Bible (AMP)
13 [Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while [a]effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and [b]delight.
 
Living the "Inspired life" means God gives you not only the desirs to get things done but the power. 
 
The world has taught us to "strive" and "work hard".  The world teaches us that we have to earn what we get, but in God's Kingdom we "receive" what we do not deserve and what we did not earn.  
 
We have built our mindset for life on worldly principles for years and years.  We are reaping that mindset.  As we move in a direction of the life that Jesus died to give us, we have to realize things are not going to change overnight.  However, because we reap what we sew, we have to start sewing to a life that is inspired by the Holy Spirit, so we can start to reap the harvest of an inspired life. The bible says "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap"
 
That means we have to change our mindset and the way we do things.  The bible says :
"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."
 
You have to give God time to work some things into you so you can birth those things in your life.  The world has also taught us to want things  fast.  If we don't get the results we want fast enough we stop what we are doing and try something else.  If it's too hard; we think something is wrong.  This is the exact mindset that causes us to abort the seed that would lead us to the "Inspired Life".  Pleease get this, if you keep sewing to the same things, you are going to get the same results.  That means you might have to step back from some things in your life for a little while, even leave some things undone for a little while, until you can return to those things with the will and the power from God to get it done.  That is what living an "inspired life" is all about.  It's not about being lazy, it is about getting your desires and your power from God.
 
Sewing to something new to manifest in your life is not going to be comfortable, it's not going to feel good, but if God has given you a vision for your life you have to keep your eyes on that.  You can only walk this walk with a God inspired vision for you life.
