An excellent spirit is an attitude and mindset that excels above the norm, and status quo, it is a thriving spirit! This spirit approaches and processes information from a different view point. It is a “can be done spirit.” Joshua and Caleb had an Excellent Spirit in Number 14:24. They refused to let the obstacles sway them from the conviction of Gods promise. They confessed and lived in the promise as if it was already fulfilled. The lack of evidence doesn’t mean there is no evidence at all, we may just not see it yet. Gods plan is a continuing unfolding plan of redemption. Joshua and Caleb knew that they were “well able to take the land” simply because the Almighty, All knowing, everywhere present God said so!
David the Psalmist said in Psalms 37:37 “Mark the perfect man….his way is peace”. Observe their ways and imitate them. In Daniel 6:3 he was preferred above all because of his excellent spirit. An excellent spirit reveals Humility, this is a mystery, it is not thinking highly of yourself or lowly of yourself, it is not thinking of yourself at all. An excellent spirit is God conscious, and considers the heart of God in decisions.
It is easy to have external things determine happiness, but an excellent spirit shows that true riches or poverty is not determined by what we have, or lack, it is revealed in the quality of our selfless spirit. Our possessions either posses us, or we are good stewards of Gods blessings. God mind declares that we have what we have, to empower others and serve them in Christ. To look beyond the faults of one another and see their needs. To give what is needed and not what is deserved. This is a life giving excellent spirit.
Today asked to be Spirit filled, and receive this excellent Spirit from above.
