‘I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.’
Christ lives in you. You have a life in Christ. It is a wonderful life. It is a life full of health, wealth, victory, and success. You are a part of something great. Your potential is unlimited. You are special. You are a child of God and you can achieve all that He assigns to you. You are crucified with Christ, not living a life of your own, living a life that is filled with Him.
None of the above may not be how you feel. You may have woken up this morning with no sense of God’s presence in your life. You may feel sick, broke, and disgusted. You may feel like a failure. You may look at your bank account and see an empty balance with no hope to be filled…this is where living gets real.
This is where the rubber meets the road. This is where the decision hits home. Will you step into the spiritual realm and walk out what God says or will you choose to believe what the natural circumstances are screaming at you? Are you going to succumb to the ‘lying vanities’ that surround you?
Now is the time to reread the verse at the beginning of this post.
‘The life which I now live in the flesh (living in the 5 physical senses) I live by the faith of the Son of God…’
Your life in Christ is no longer based on what you are going through. Your life is new, refreshed daily. Your inward man, alive unto God, sensing the deep things of God. Your life is based and filled with faith, faith in God. Mountain moving faith that sees beyond the natural and into the realm of Christ’s victory over the enemy and all circumstances.
Your life in Christ is filled with wisdom and understanding. You can delve into what He has for you daily. Your daily prayer life becomes a relationship with the God of the universe. He created you. He knows the beginning from the end. He is a great starter and He has started something great in your life but not only that He is an even better finisher!
He has created a path for you to walk on. That path is secure. That path is a path of destiny. That path is for the righteous ones. The victorious ones stay on that path. The light of the Word shines ahead of you onto that path. The path of your assignment.
Time is short. Time is running out. Our job is clear. Our job is souls. We are to clean out the highways and the byways. We are to increase our reach, increase our capacity. God is doing something in the earth and it is glorious!
Live your life in purpose. Reflect God’s glory. Be the one who chooses life and joy over stress and worry. Never look at what you see in the natural. Look into your heart. See what God sees. Look to the Word and be the one who rises up in your new life, the life of salvation. Be the one that lives in Christ!
