Do you ever get days when you feel overwhelmed with inspiration – more so than other days? Moments in time when you feel as though you’re going to jump right out of your skin? Burning Jeremiah 20:9 moments?! I am having one of those days. (smile) So, dear Reader! Before setting out for the day, I would like to share these words and thoughts with you…
The Indwelling Christ
Some years ago the following Words of Knowledge were spoken: “You Have To Let My Personality Come Through.” It was the Spirit and Person of the Son alive inside this spiritually-dormant mortal coil that had spoken and was seeking expression. I really wish I could say that allowing this to happen was instantaneous. It should have been so simple and so easy, right? No, it wasn’t. The flesh dies long and it dies hard. The reality is that it takes time for the flesh to be crucified from: worldly attachments and affections, self, religious and natural mindsets, academic preconditioning and well, the list is long. Painful lessons? Yes. And if we have a stubborn streak, the lessons will take longer and will be more difficult. They were.
Chastening from a loving FATHER is required before partaking of the peaceable fruit of HIS holiness and righteousness. (Heb. 12:11) Add to this that when there is a great call of GOD on your life, the enemy will unleash and intensify his attacks that much more. It’s a tall bitter drink to swallow and it’s a double whammy. Even still, our patient Lord, the precious Holy Spirit, the Word and holy angels mercifully help, strengthen and guide us along the way. And then one day, the light bulb in our minds shines brighter and we come to realize that the greatest lesson learned in allowing His Person to live in and through us is by living the sanctified life. It’s about yielding to Him every day and never giving up. It’s about continuously persevering with determined faith until we leave this lower dimension. (Progressive sanctification) And, importantly, it’s about learning the difference between futile repetitive remorse and genuine godly sorrow and repentance.
So, then! Let the Lord’s Spirit and Personality come through your converted heart; it will open the gates of His righteousness, holiness and glory for you! Let it awaken the song that is in your heart and sing it! Let all fruitful works that serve for the greatest good find expression! And may the Strength, Divine Wisdom and Love that lives in you revive not only you but also a sick, lost and dying world.
The following verses are being shared with you today after having seen in vision the power and high voltage of ‘The’ Glorious Right Hand! For those in doubt, I can testify that it really is as powerful as the Word instructs! Praise GOD and thank you Lord!
The Lord is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation. The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous; *The right hand of the Lord does valiantly. The right hand of the Lord is exalted; the right hand of the Lord does valiantly. I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.* The Lord has chastened me severely, He has not given me over to death. Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go through them, And I will praise the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord, through which the righteous shall enter. I will praise You, for you have answered me, and have become my salvation. (Ps. 118:14-21)
Keep the Faith in the Lord and His finished works. Don’t let the enemy, regardless of the obstacles, manipulate and rob you – and others – of the gift that is in you. Stir it up. Unwrap it. Declare His magnificent works! Just. Go!
