Daily Meditations – Friday, July 4, 2014

James 1:2-4 – “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”

EVERY TRIAL IN OUR LIVES IS ALLOWED FOR TWO PURPOSES:
THE FIRST IS TO CONFORM US TO THE IMAGE OF JESUS CHRIST, WHICH IS THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT.
THE SECOND IS TO BRING US TO A PLACE OF MATURITY WHERE HE CAN TRUST US WITH MORE AUTHORITY TO DO THE WORKS THAT HE DID, WHICH ARE THROUGH THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT.
THEREFORE, WE MUST SEIZE OUR TRIALS AS JAMES ENCOURAGES, COUNTING THEM AS JOY, BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS LEAD TO THE DAWN’S LIGHT.

Zechariah 12:1 – “Thus says the Lord, Who stretches out the heavens and lays the foundation of the earth and forms the spirit of man within him.”

God is Spirit, and Zechariah 12 tells us that God formed the spirit of man within him. The human spirit is what makes relationship and fellowship with God possible at all. Through his spirit, man can walk in step with God. In the Spirit he is one with God.
Through his spirit he knows of God and receives everything God wants to communicate to Him. It is in Man’s spirit that Christ takes up residence.
He who puts on Christ is one spirit with Him.

1 Corinthians 6:17 – “But he who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.”
