Galatians 2:20 – “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.”

 
Satan wants us to feel alone and abandoned. We are never disconnected from the Lord because He lives in us. We don’t always feel the presence of God but He is always in us.

 
We stay “God-inside minded.” We live by and through Him. He is our wisdom, strength, peace, righteousness, and everything else we will ever need. We simply need to believe that Christ in us is the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27).

 
He is our hope of our finding and living in His purpose for our life and bearing fruit that remains for the Kingdom. He promised to be with us always (Matthew 28:20). Meditate on the fact that God lives in you and you are never disconnected from Him no matter how you feel.

DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS – 319

John 13:8 — Peter said to Him, “You shall never wash my feet!” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”
John 13:9,10 — “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!” Jesus answered, ‘A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean…..”‘

 
Once we have received Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are bathed all over, and cleansed by His blood once and for all eternity! His blood has perfected us forever (Hebrews 10:14), and we only need to wash our feet because we walk in the world and our feet pick up dust and dirt, causing us to stumble.

So how is Jesus washing our feet today? Ephesians 5:25-26 tells us that “Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the Word.”

We, the church, are cleansed with the washing of water by the Word. The more we come under anointed teaching that unveils Christ through the Word, the more the cleansing goes on. And as our feet are washed, instead of stumbling, we will be walking and even running!

Affirmation:

I LET JESUS WASH MY FEET WITH A DEEPER REVELATION OF HIMSELF THROUGH HIS WORD.

 

 

We’ve got to be at a place where we stop and say, “Soul, what are you doing, and why are you so complacent? I’ve got to remember from where I have fallen. I’ve got to get back that love and that passion and that fire; I’ve got to get it back! I’ve got to repent and do the first works! Something’s wrong here. I’m not going to stay here anymore murmuring and going around this mountain. I am going to do something about it!”

Revelation 2:4, 5a” –“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works.”

 

 
“Delight yourself in the LORD; and He will give you the desires of your heart.” – Psalm 37:4
“Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” – John 14:13

He is pulling you away from the old, and taking you under the water into the unknown for a time of being unseen and unheard, for a “deeper depth” experience with Him.
God is asking you to not judge things by your natural eyesight. God is doing something bigger than you can see right now. Yes, He’s about to blow your paradigm and expand your destiny consciousness.

What’s the purpose of this?

He is preparing to set you up to ride on top of the next big move of His Spirit, but you have to let go of the old to receive the new. God is going to lift you up on the top of this wave with greater speed, accuracy, and impact, than the one you were previously on.

Let go and receive a greater commission!

See with the eyes of your spirit man, not the eyes of your flesh. It’s time to graduate and go to the next level! It’s time to put on the new wineskins fully and receive the infilling of new strength, vigor, and faith.

Isaiah 42:9,10 – ” Behold the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things;……sing to the Lord a new song, sing His praise from the end of the earth!”

2 Corinthians 5:7 – “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”

 
Faith in God’s Word is how the treasures of God’s wisdom and knowledge are released. Walking by faith means building up our spirit through affirming and meditating on God’s word until it becomes the “sword of the spirit.”

 
This is the time to receive deliverance from those pains and harassments that have been hanging around you. It is time to pull strongholds down. Remember, breakthroughs happen in the unseen world before they take place in the seen world.

 
Don’t let up — be persistent and press in. Rejoice continually — whether you feel like it or not and whether it looks like its working or not. The Word says it is working, so it is!

Romans 1:14 – “I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the barbarians.”

Paul was overwhelmed with the sense of his indebtedness to Jesus Christ, and he spent himself to express it.  “Ye are not your own.“  Paul sold himself to Jesus Christ.

The great inspiration in Paul’s life was his view of Jesus Christ as his spiritual creditor. We need to quit praying about ourselves and be spent for others as the bondslave of Jesus. That is the meaning of being made broken bread and poured-out wine in reality (Philippians 2:17). 

Questions to ask myself:

Am I doing anything to enable Him to bring His Redemption into actual manifestation in other lives?  

Am I willing to let the Spirit of God work in me this sense of indebtedness?

Am I truly a bondslave of the Lord Jesus.?

EMBRACING A NEW VISTA

Exodus 14:11,12 – “They said to Moses, ‘Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt…It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!’

There was something comforting about the past that the Israelites preferred at this point to the unknown dilemma of future freedom. It would seem they were so afraid of the unknown that they might even have been willing to settle for second best and remain in an oppressed lifestyle rather than face the trial of exodus.

SURRENDER SELF-PITY TO GOD

1. One of the most effective ways to destroy the habit of feeling sorry for one’s self, is, first of all, to focus on God and start affirming the promises of God promised to you in scripture (your inheritance in Christ). Then, purpose to think about other people.

2. Ask God to give you someone that you can help with their spiritual needs — and go minister to them — tell them about Jesus — look after them and take an interest in their spiritual development.

3. Let go of the past and move into new opportunities to discover our CALLING and DESTINY in Christ. Even though our enemy will use fear of the unknown to overwhelm us and cause us to lose courage, we must endeavor to maintain a bold faith in the face of adversity.

4. STANDING AND STILLNESS IN WARFARE IS STRATEGY

Exodus14:13,14 – “And Moses said unto the people, ‘Fear Ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will show to you today: for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you shall see them again no more forever.'”
Ephesians 6: 10,14 – “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness.”

When we stand firm, God enables us to overcome our enemy in His truth. We quickly discover in spiritual skirmishes that God’s authority is truly indisputable and the enemy must bow the knee to the King of kings.

God said that the people would never have to face the enemy they faced that day again. In other words, the battles we win today remain future victories. By faith we can maintain ground taken without having to fight the same battle twice. Furthermore, we do not need to revisit old wounds: what God has healed, He has healed. Ongoing introspection has no place in a people whose focus is the Lord.

5. REACH OUT
“Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Why are you crying out to Me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground.'” Exodus 14:15-16
There is a time to stand and a time to move. If we don’t discern a new season with God’s instruction to “move on,” our past has then the potential to be used as a “crutch” – meaning it remains a familiar comfort zone and a possible stumbling block to the new things God has for us.

Our authority in Christ raises itself as a banner of victory over our circumstances, situations and any and all intimidation and enemy assault. We must do our part, like Moses, in learning to exercise our God-given authority over our circumstances. Moses raised his staff, commanding what stood before God’s people in the natural environment to be aligned with Heaven. He then stretched the staff out as a gesture of faith in ACTION.

Similarly, we have to do our bit to engage by faith and believe that Jesus’ finished work on the cross will deliver every area of our lives into total freedom. In this way we will experience Kingdom transformation and acceleration of DESTINY!

QUESTIONS TO ASK MYSELF:

1. Am I happy in my comfort zone or do I really want to change — that is, reach for the earthly DESTINY God has for me.

2. How many people am I presently discipling? Am I equipping these people to disciple others so they can advance the “Great Commission”?

Luke 4:18 – “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me.”

Believe God is bringing us to a place where we know that the Spirit of the Lord is upon us. God wants to bring us to the fact of what Jesus said in John 14: “I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper who will be with you forever.”

Because the Spirit of the Lord came upon Him who is our Head, we must see to it that we receive the same anointing and that the same Spirit is upon us. We see the manifestation of the Spirit resting upon Him so that His ministry was with power. May God awaken us to the fact that this is the only place where there is any ministry of power.

There is no limit to what we may become if we dwell and live in the Spirit. In the Spirit of prayer, we are taken right away from earth into heaven. It is only in the Spirit that the love of God is poured out in us (Romans 5:5).
