The spirit of the prophet

The spirit of the prophet
Is subject to the prophet;
The word declares it so.
I don’t have to wait for an inspiration,
My spirit is ready to go.
I don’t have to live according to my feelings,
Or wait for a better day.
I can turn, I can call, “Lord Jesus!”

This song comes from 1 Corinthians 14:32. This means, according to Witness Lee in "How To Meet" chapter 9, "You can give your spirit the order to prophesy; your spirit is subject to you."

I learned this song many years ago when I was in the YP meetings. Oh Lord...."the spirit of the prophet is subject to the prophet."...I often remember this song when I "don't feel like it" ...when I "don't feel like being in the meetings" when...I'm not in the "mood"..the Lord reminds me this little hymn!...I DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR A BETTER DAY...I CAN TURN RIGHT NOW...! Praise the Lord I don't have to live according to my feeling! What a salvation that is...there is nothing in my being that longs to seek Him...except His overcoming life in me! Thank you Lord for Your life in me....not an ordinary life..but an overcoming life..the eternal life!!!!
