A sign of being filled with God’s Spirit is that you firmly, persistently and consistently take your stand upon God’s word, His principles and commands and delights in doing so, because you realize that they are to your benefit. To have this attitude, requires a firm grip upon your heart, what you look at or listen to, refusing negativity and keeping your eyes on Jesus and the Word of God. Other signs are consistent giving and a holding on to your good, positive confession. People who do this, is the kind of people that God restores after a time of loss. He is a God of restoration and He will restore everything to the Church, the Bride of Christ which had been lost, whether physical, financial or emotional. We are prisoners of hope and need to trust God implicitly because He will fulfill his word to us after we had clung tenaciously onto him throughout every negative circumstance through which we have had to suffer.
