When I became born again, God set up residence in me. Just as in a marriage, He became one with me. God’s spirit in me births things and as I speak it, it becomes a seed that takes root and grows and produces. Unproductive words are worthless. But the Word of God is alive, active and powerful. It always hits the mark. It’s what holds the universe in place.
The Spiritual world is the father to the material world. The physical world seems real because it affects our senses (sight, touch, smell and hearing) so if you’ve been feeding your physical world, more than likely you’ll be affected by those senses. But the spirit world is more real because the things that are seen are temporary, but the things not seen are eternal. (2 Corinth 4:18) Renewing your mind exchanges your thoughts for Gods.
If things aren’t working for you, you can trace it back to the way you’re thinking about it. You have to agree 100% with the Word. No doubting, no wavering, just believe. The Word of God is a mirrored reflection of what I already have. If I don’t release it, nothing will happen.
Let me go a little deeper there; As God spoke the worlds into existence, so am I to speak things that be not, as though they already are. Mark 11:22-24 says; So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
How many times have you been so focused on external things, seeking to solve internal problems? Or focused on people, drama, losses and failures that you’ve missed the truth that’s just beyond, that must be seen first in the spirit realm. We have so much power in us if we’d only focus on Him.
When you’re focused on Jesus, you can do the impossible. Matthew 6:33 says, Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you. What does that mean? Turn your eyes on Jesus and all he accomplished for us. Turn your eyes on His way of being and doing things. Turn your eyes on HIS righteousness, not your own.
When Jesus said, “All these things will be added to you,” He was talking about the things you need for daily living; food, drink and clothing. If you take care of His work, His kingdom, He will take care of you. When you take care of feeding your spirit, fanning the flames, so that you may be light in a dark world, so that people can find their way to Him, through you, life suddenly becomes exciting and fulfilling.
Oh Father, sometimes I think it’s all about me! I get to looking at what I don’t have and become dissatisfied in life. Please forgive me! I forget to look to You and rely on You. At times I become self-sufficient, when You created and designed me for You, for worship and fellowship with You. So this morning, I worship and give You praise. I thank You for the Word and the power that goes with that Word. May it continue to bring revelation and power and demonstration in my daily life and the lives of others. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
