United to the triune God through Christ, our spirit is infused with His power through His Spirit, and Christ lives in and through us (Ephesians 3:16-17). Since Christ is in us, even though our body is dying, His Spirit gives us His life (Romans 8:10).
When Jesus moves into our spirit, we walk by the direction of His Spirit (Galatians 5:16, 25). We have supernatural strength regardless of how we feel in body and soul.
Slowly, the Spirit changes us from glory to glory until people see Jesus when they look at us (2 Corinthians 3:18). All of the fullness of the triune God dwells in us through Jesus, at the same time that we are in Him (Colossians 2:9; Romans 6:8).
Following the leading of God’s Spirit moment by moment throughout the day results in physical productivity, a healthy mental and emotional life, spiritual power and material blessings that we cannot even imagine.
We submit our negative thoughts to the Lordship of Jesus Christ for healing. We even lay down our positive thoughts; and, instead, take up His thoughts as our own (Philippians 2:5).
Rather than to spend our financial blessings on frivolous amusements and earthly treasures that are here today, but gone tomorrow, we actually prefer to donate to our local church and to missionaries doing the work of the Lord.
This makes the fruit of our labor last into eternity (1 Corinthians 1:9, 6:17; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 1:3-14, 4:32, 5:22-33; Galatians 5:22-23; Acts 15:28). We submit our will to God’s will and out of His glorious riches, He provides for all of our needs (Philippians 4:19; Matthew 6:33).
Father God, You love us so much and You reveal Yourself to us in a multitude of ways all throughout the day (John 14:21). We often get too busy to even notice Your blessings. We spend our time so absorbed in our own plans and the issues in front of us, that we fail to see Your provision and direction for us in the midst of it all.
Make us ever mindful of Your intimate union with our spirit, Your sanctification of our soul – our mind, will and emotions – and the fact that You rejoice in our death, when we come to dwell with You for eternity (Psalm 116:15). We praise You with all of our heart, mind and strength.
Thought for the Day:
There is little need to understand Biblical Truth prior to forming our union with God’s Trinity, because once we utilize the faith of the Son of God for salvation, the Spirit will teach us all things.
– John 2:27
