It's about His Purpose for You!

By Dale Shumaker

What matters is living life for His Purpose
for us. Going to school it seems to be
about getting a balanced education...
to read, to write, to do math. They teach
us basic skills then find a vocation with
our skills we could fit into. Then we go
to college, tech school, university to
get a degree in those skills.

We find a job that fits our skills and interests
and what we can do well at, so to pay the
bills and do things in life we enjoy.

But where did purpose slip through the
cracks in all this?
Is there something we are to
do, as God has assigned it to us before
birth? Are we Spirits waiting for a body
in Heaven, to be formed and come to
earth. I am not sure how this works
exactly. The Bible says things like this
is the way it is.

Our biggest objective is to find God's purpose
for us, God's mission, and this is a life-long
continuing experience. It's beyond just
getting saved and not go to hell, but to
be a life of His Spirit in what God had in
mind for us from the beginning.

The Scriptures say that all things work
together for His Good for those who love
God,  According to His Purpose for us.
See Romans 8:28, well, read all of

So, that brings me to the importance of
what I write. It's for everyone to find
and live this purpose, and no matter
what you have done in the past, He,
God's Spirit, will use that for what He
has purposed for you, and make things
work out good for you.

Please see what is posted on
the Spirit Savvy Network.

It's all about living out our purpose,
and what our soul was in Spirit
before we were born and what
we are made for.

Then we will live in a Most
Magnificent Way.

About His Will, His Way

by Dale Shumaker

It's all about doing His Will, His way.
God gave us the privilege to life.
In that He has a reason for us being

Everything in the world is about us
being part of His will and doing what
we have been called to do... having
this purpose for living, having a mission
from God as we live.

In the Lord's Prayer, the first thing we
pray for is "His will be done on earth as in
Heaven (Matthew 6)” We pray for His
Kingdom to come and His will be done.

We are all about living for Him, and Jesus
said He came to fulfill the will of the Father.
We each have a role here, a call here, a
mission here. This is our purpose for
being here. See John 6:38.
This includes everyone.

How do we do that? We live on earth for
doing God's will, His mission for us.
What is this mission and how do we
live it? See

It will help you find His Mission for
you and how to accomplish it...
key ingredients.

When we live out the mission God has
purposed us for, we live in a greater
level of vibrancy and Power in what we
He answers our prayers and empowers
us for His Work,  while on earth.

Remember, as we work for His Kingdom,
in the next one our position there will be
determined by our obedience to His
will in this life.

How to be a Living in Spirit person

Living in Spirit....
the Body of Christ as One in Christ

By Dale Shumaker

The most important attribute in Spiritual life is prayer.
"My Temple, my body, is His place for Prayer."
Matthew 21:13
We have direct access to God's Spirit through
our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 10:22

The Body of Christ is to
work as One unit under the direct orchestration
of the Holy Spirit.
Today there are thousands of denominations
and groups doing their thing in absence of
communication with each other.

There is a remnant, I feel, of true believers within
all groups and those not in formal groups.
Ones who seek God truly from their hearts.

I have seen Spiritual progression go something like just below.
It's something available to all of us whether part of
a formal group or not.
Informal connections based on relationships are more
powerful than organizations of connection. Where a
true love exists among each other, there the Spirit

Here's how to  live a Spiritual life,
of which can be done part of or not part of a
formal group.

God many times uses dramatic, traumatic, desperate situations to
lead us to call on Him. Because of a life urgency, eye-opener we
go to Him for help. We look to His Word, The Bible, for guidance,
and call out to God to help us.

"But in my distress I cried out to the LORD;
yes, I prayed to my God for help. He heard me
from his sanctuary; my cry to him reached his ears."
Psalm 18:6

From that He impresses on us a mission.
We see that we are really here for a Divine
purpose, of a Divine calling. We then see
this as very important, maybe too important
for us, so we again call to Him for help.

"Truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do
the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do,
because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name,
this I will do, that the Father may be glorified Son."
John 14

It grows and then we see others as more
important in what they do and we begin
praying for others, helping each other, especially
those on a mission too.

Our own life becomes secondary to the life of others.
The true grit of Intercessory prayer begins
taking hold in our lives.
We then genuinely become servants of all.
Mark 9:35

"Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit,
but with humility of mind regard one another
as more important than yourselves; do not merely
look out for your own personal interests, but also
for the interests of others."
Philippians 2:3-4

We come to a place in life where we see
our life to be a life with others.
It's not so much about me anymore. It's about Him,
His desire for others He fulfills through me.
The Body of Christ emerges, as we care about
each other, help each other, and become One in

Now in my 70's I wanted to make a
record of how to live in the Spirit as I
have learned throughout my life.

The Spirit Savvy Business blog was created
to help us live in Spirit in our work, in our
lifestyle. In all we do, this is God's vehicle
through which He accomplishes His Mission
through us.

Our whole life is His life for His ways and His Mission.
In August, 2011, I published on this blog an online summary of

In July, 2012, the Spirit Savvy Network
website was launched. And the keynote base for
it, Living Your Magnificent Mission, was linked to it in 2015.

For those in a God-called mission I make myself
available to come along side you in
prayer and the wisdom I have learned
through life. For anyone, I make myself
available who chooses to Live Your Magnificent Mission.

God has a calling on you, a mission for you... something
very important for you to do. While alive, my desire is to be there
for you as you progress in what God is calling you to do.

A timeline summary and links for the above:
in Jesus is Us starting September, 2012.

A comprehensive resource for helping you
in your journey of living your life in Spirit
for His purposes through you;
your life in partnership with His Mission.

We, the true Believers in Christ, are all part of
His Spirit Savvy Network;
we each have an important mission to live out:
and we are empowered by prayer in our secret closet,
and by praying for and helping each other.
Through Spirit we all interchange with each other
as orchestrated by Jesus, our conductor.

Redirection on website

By Dale Shumaker

Some changes on the website are now in motion.
There is not another time that I feel such sense of importance
of what is being laid out on the Spirit Savvy Network website
and what it represents.

It was originally created to feature two training systems...
the New Breed Missionary Entrepreneur
and the Missionary Entrepreneur Accelerator.
They have been located in the two thought clouds
on the right side of the home page.
I plan to change them to have the
Living Your Magnificent Mission e-course,

and building skills in the power of prayer
using Andrew Murray's With Christ in the School of Prayer
as the textbook to follow.

It is my belief we are in life to live God's mission for us
and through us, and it takes prayer as the foundational skill
to accomplish it. We as a society, I feel, are weak in both areas...
living out our mission and prayer.
We, every walking person, need to enlist to this.
We all are Christ's ambassadors and are soldiers
in His army for the Kingdom of God. Our weapons are
not of this world, but in the Spirit through prayer.
That is our battle ground and we need to be skilled
as God's soldiers wherever we are.

So please pray with me on this. I need some help.
That God sends those who feel impressed in Spirit to help.
Thanks for praying with me on it.
