Living out of the God Life!
God is so good!! We know He is moving mightily in the earth and it is such a blessed time to be a part of what He is doing!!! Yes, God is moving! I want you to be so encouraged to know that! Sometimes in our lives we may feel stuck or as if nothing is changing or progressing; nothing could be further from the truth! As members of the Body of Christ we are a part of something that is living and moving!
Just as the living Father sent Me and I live by (through, because of) the Father, even so whoever continues to feed on Me [whoever takes Me for his food and is nourished by Me] shall [in his turn] live through and because of Me.
John 6:57 Amplified Translation
Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:4-5 NKJV
Jesus is so precious! He has made us to be like Him, living stones, and we are being built up into a spiritual house! Things are being built, being raised up; things are progressing, and moving!!!
The life that God has on the inside of Him is in us! We have the life of God, and the living God, living on the inside of us! Anything living will be growing, expanding, and progressing! We know that this life that is inside of us is doing great things!
And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”
2 Corinthians 6:16 NKJV
We are not a part of a dead religious system nor do we merely only adhere to a set of beliefs or ideologies! The Living God has moved inside of us and we live in and through Him! Think about that, God and His life are resident within us!!!!! We are alive with the life of God! We have access to a higher existence of life, a greater quality of life, than our human status even affords! God has given us His life, the God kind of life! How powerful this is! We must sow this into our consciousness and begin to draw on and access that life that is there!
Not only are we carrying the life of God within us, but His life is to flow through us! We need new thoughts, new hopes, and new dreams!
Now on the final and most important day of the Feast, Jesus stood, and He cried in a loud voice, “If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, ‘From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water.’” But He was speaking here of the Spirit, Whom those who believed (trusted, had faith) in Him were afterward to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified (raised to honor).
John 7:37-39 Amplified Translation
NOW the Holy Spirit has been given because Jesus has been glorified! We have the Spirit of God in us, yes!! But that life, that living water, is also flowing out of us! What an oasis we can be in a dry and weary land! This is truly our heart to be that oasis of God’s love and the LIVING HOPE (1 Peter 1:3) that is in Jesus Christ! I believe this is the time for us to allow God’s life to flow through us!!! We must grow in our consciousness of this reality and one way we can do this is by partaking fully of God’s living Word!!!!
For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 Amplified Translation
Our God is a living God and His power and the possibilities that Christ’s death have won for us are greater than all of the systems of this world!! We are overcomers teaming with the life of God! GOD IS MOVING!!! Be encouraged!!! Now is our time!!
Heavenly Father, Thank You for making Your home in Me! Holy Spirit please help me to be more aware of what I am carrying! I want those rivers of living water to be flowing out of me! Thank You for transforming my thinking to align with what the Word says! I have Your life and it is a fountain of love and hope flowing out and impacting those around me!!! In Jesus’ Name!!!
