Let the Holy Spirit Enter and Guide You Always!

Good morning, Happy Souls!

Bill Keller wrote an good devotional today that I
recommend to you. He has given me permission to
copy his e-mails, and I'm sure he would be happy if
you would share this with people you know as well.

How many times have you found yourself so filled with
good, spiritual intentions that you could barely keep
your feet on the ground? It's a wonderful experience,
isn't it?

Do you have the same spiritual uplift today when you
pursue those intentions? If yes, great! If not, you
may have yielded to "what's in it for me?" rather
than pursuing God's will.

Please read on.


( Psalms 51:11, Galatians 5:16-25 )

"Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy
Spirit from me." (Psalms 51:11)

A move of the flesh or the Spirit? I believe in my
heart that this word today is going to help many who
read it stop struggling through life and start sailing
through life! This message today is literally the
difference between living in defeat and living
victoriously. It is the classic battle of the flesh
versus the Spirit, a battle that is impossible to win
without Christ in your heart and His strength to see
you through. It is sadly a battle too many Christians
are losing each day, however, I am going to help you
focus on this spiritual war we all fight and give you
the key to insure you aren't living your life in the
flesh but in the Spirit.

On the day of Pentecost, the "promise," the Holy Spirit
of God fell and began to indwell men. From that moment
on, every person who comes to know Christ as their
Savior by faith receives the indwelling of the Holy
Spirit. It is the power of God that resides in a
Believer and enables men to do great things for God.
The Holy Spirit is our guide throughout life,
showing us where to go, what to do, when to do it, and
how to do it. It is that presence of the Almighty
that we must yield to afresh each day so that we
are living our life "in the Spirit" and not "in the

For those who know the Lord, there is nothing more
comforting ( the Holy Spirit is often referred to
as "the Comforter" ) or reassuring than knowing
that the very presence of God is within you. It is
the Holy Spirit that transforms mere men into
powerful men of God. The Holy Spirit is what gives
men the boldness to proclaim His Truth to a world
that rejects that Truth. The Holy Spirit is what
gives men the confidence to stand in the midst of
an unbelieving world and declare that Jesus truly
is "the way, the truth, and the life, and that
nobody comes to the Father except thru Him." It
is the Holy Spirit that empowers men to literally
give their own life for their faith in Christ.

When David cried out to the Lord for forgiveness in
the powerful 51st Psalm, he begged God not to take
the Holy Spirit from him. David knew that without
the power of God in his life, he was nothing but a
mere man of flesh and blood and that was all. It
was the power of God that enabled him to be more
than just a king, but an instrument of God to lead
his people. Like David, when we sin and grieve the
Holy Spirit we should be driven to our knees asking
God to forgive us and cleanse us of our unrighteousness.
Our sin hurts our relationship with God and neutralizes
the power of the Holy Spirit, since for the Holy Spirit
to be effective in our life we must yield to it, not
rebel against it.

Today, I know many people reading this are simply
struggling just to get through the day. God promised
His children a life of abundance. That doesn't mean
everything will go perfect, or that we won't have to
face trials and tribulations along the way. What it
does mean is that by fulfilling our purpose in
serving and glorifying Him, we can know His peace
and joy despite the challenges of living in this
fallen and sin-filled world. Even in the midst of
facing life's problems we don't have to struggle,
but can live our life in victory. That is what I
want to help you do today. I want to give you the
key to not struggle through each day but sail
through each day, and that is only possible by
living in the Spirit and not the flesh . . . .

This is also exactly where the VAST MAJORITY of
Christians are at in their life today. Their lives
are led by the flesh and not the Spirit. They
struggle because they operate in the flesh and not
the Spirit. Life is hard because they are living
in their strength and not His strength. They
can't get victory in their life because they are
trusting in their self and not in God. This word
today can literally transform your life if you will
hear it. As long as you continue to operate in the
flesh you will continue to live without the power
that is available to you through the Holy Spirit.
You will be like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, having
the power of the ruby slippers but never using it.

A popular term in sports is "safe is death." It
simply means if you play safe, if you play not to
lose, you will lose. You have to play to win. You
have to give it everything you have and not hold
anything back. Life is the same my friend. Only
instead of "safe is death," "flesh is death!" If
you live your life in the flesh you can never win.
You need to yield to the Holy Spirit and allow God
to control your life. You need to get up each day,
treat each day like the gift from God it is and give
it everything that you have. You will never see
victory in your life if you are operating in the
flesh instead of the Spirit. Everyone wants to win,
but the only ones who do are those who yield their
life completely to the Holy Spirit. You will never
win in the flesh, and you can't lose in the Spirit!!!

I love you and care about you so much. I know the
difference in many of you seeing your life change
from one of constant struggles to constant victories
is to stop living in your flesh and start living in
His Spirit. You do that by making the conscious
choice each day as you wake up to trust God with
your life that day. You make the conscious decision
that you will seek after HIS will and your will.
You give your life afresh to Him as you begin your
day. You tell God that your life belongs to Him
and to use you for His glory this day. This is not
something that you do once at an altar and never do
again. It is something that we have to do at the
start of each and every day. The difference in a
life of struggles and a life of victories is
whether you are living in the flesh or in the Spirit.

Let me give you a personal testimony from this
ministry. God has blessed Liveprayer abundantly over
these past 78 months. It would be easy, even natural
and many would say "wise" for me to exploit the
incredible work God has built and generate $15 million
a year through a myriad of business deals, build a
nice building, hire a big staff, and not have to
really depend on God any more. We could still reach
millions, still make an impact in many lives, but it
would be more me than God at that point and we would
accomplish spiritually only a fraction of what we are

God told me to trust Him to move on people's hearts
to support His work here, and for 78 months now, He
has not failed. God said to go to secular TV and
trust Him to open the doors, and we have the only
program of its kind on major secular network
stations reaching 1/4 million people every night,
soon to be millions all over the nation, that would
never be reached otherwise. My friend, there is
NOTHING I would ever do in operating Liveprayer or
in my own life, that would possibly cause God to
remove His Spirit or lessen the impact of the Holy
Spirit in any way. I know in my heart that
Liveprayer is not Bill Keller, it is God moving
through His Spirit. The second it is anything else,
we cease to be the powerful, life-changing work we
have been over these past 78 months.

I will be praying for you today. Praying that you
will hear this message and apply it to your life.
You have to practice at trusting God. Satan will
tell you that you can do it on your own, that you
only need God for the "big things." LIAR! YOU
NEED GOD IN ALL THINGS! The goal is to be yielded
to His Spirit literally 24/7 so that it is not you,
but Him. Yield yourself to the Spirit of the
living God that resides within you, let the Holy
Spirit have His perfect way with you, and you will
know the true peace, the true joy, and the true
abundance God has promised you in His Word. You can
struggle through this life operating in your flesh,
or you can sail through life operating in the Spirit.

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
