Episode 3: Occupational Hazards


There is a principle called self-government that is linked with the occupation of Holy Spirit in the heart. Self-government is the first place of stewardship tasked to us. In Proverbs 4:23, it states “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” The task of guarding our hearts is key to becoming a fully functional Holy Ghost filled occupying force. However, there are enemies of self-government that cause occupational hazards in our lives:

  1. The devil
  2. Temptation
  3. Worries, anxiety, and stress

Good ground is what is needed to become occupied by the substance of the eternal word.
