Entry# 025 Praying to Access our Spiritual DNA to find Fulfillment
In the physical world, DNA is Deoxyribonucleic acid which is a molecule that encodes the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms and many viruses. It is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms located in the cell nucleus. The function of DNA is long-term storage used as a template to make transcription which directs the assembly of a protein in a translation. Human DNA can replicate, and consists of about 3 billion bases, and more than 99 % of those bases are the same in all people. Our spiritual DNA is just as involved and complex. God puts a piece of Himself in each one of us that we can either access for His kingdom, or allow to lie dormant and ineffective within. We all have a king and a fool inside of us. The one we nurture will grow the most and become the most evident in our lives. God’s holy DNA can overcome the tarnished DNA of our sin nature, our generational curses, and our bad experiences. No longer do we have the excuse of poor upbringing, lack of opportunity, or a non-existent support system as a reason for our failures in life. We have God’s favor, love and provision that we can access at anytime if we turn to Him. Turning to God should be the first thing we do, not just an afterthought. God created a God-sized void inside of all of us that only He can fill. We can attempt to fill it in various ways in life, only to come up short and unfulfilled. We can surround ourselves with stuff, look for love in all the wrong places, be the smartest person in the room, and have the biggest bank account. While these things will give us temporary satisfaction, long-term we will still feel something missing. God doesn’t intend for our lives to work without Him. We will acquire some level of success, but only God gives us purpose and destiny. We can run from our destiny, but we cannot hide from God’s purpose He has designed for our lives. When we finally seek His will and submit to it, we will find the satisfaction we have been missing out on. Accessing our spiritual DNA involved getting into God’s presence, being open to hearing His voice, and being willing to heed His direction. We have to pray boldly in the spirit using the word of God. This is why studying God’s word is so essential. We gain revelation in the process of engaging in that spiritual side of whom we are. So praying to access our spiritual DNA, is chasing after God seeking Him diligently so that we can walk effortlessly and joyfully into God plan and will for our lives.
Simple Sample Prayer
Dear God thank you for making our bodies in your image, and our spirits in your likeness. Thank you for breathing the breathe of life into us so that we became living souls. Although we are born in sin and shaped into iniquity, we have the right and the option to become the righteousness of God. Help us to accept all that Jesus died to provide for us, including direct access to you by paying for our sins. Without you Lord, we can do nothing, and our greatest accomplishments are naught. But with you Father, we can do all things, and we can have a life of joy, satisfaction and fulfillment. Help us to access our spiritual DNA so that we can discern and accept you plan for our lives. We know that you desire for us to be fulfilled and for us to enjoy our everyday lives. Help us to seek you for our satisfaction so that we can have our God-given desires fulfilled to share with your people. In Jesus’s name we pray, Amen.
