DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS – 165

1 Corinthians 3:16 – “Do you not know that you are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”

The holiness we are seeking is not a legislative or legalistic set of rules; it is Christ’s very own quality of life. The Holy Spirit works in us not merely a new desire to love, but He imparts to us Christ’s very own love.

We develop more than just a general faith in Jesus; we actually begin believing like Jesus, with His quality of faith. It is God in us that makes us holy.

AFFIRMATION:

I approach God with great trembling, great joy, deep worship, and holy fear, who has called me unto Himself for His own will and purpose.

 

 

Hebrews 11:1 – “Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen.”

Observation:

AS A DEED ENABLES ME TO LAY CLAIM TO PROPERTY THAT BELONGS TO ME, SO MY FAITH ENABLES ME TO LAY CLAIM TO GOD’S PROMISES THAT BELONG TO ME.
IF I BUILD MY FAITH – MY TITLE DEED – ON GOD’S WORD, IT WON’T MATTER IF THE DEVIL HITS MY BODY, ATTACKS MY FINANCES, OR TRIES TO STEAL MY PEACE. I CAN KICK HIM OFF MY PROPERTY BECAUSE MY FAITH WILL BE THE PROOF OF OWNERSHIP I NEED.
NOTHING CAN STAND IN MY WAY!
I BUILD MY HOUSE OF FAITH AND MOVE IN!

 

 
“If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God.” – 1 Peter 4:11 NIV

One of the greatest revelations of the New Testament is that Christ dwells within His people who live on the earth. That is why they are called the Body of Christ. We actually become the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in the earth, but we also become His mouth. God speaks prophetically through His people.

“If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God.” – 1 Peter 4:11 NIV

Think about a statement of Paul’s: “…the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you…” – Romans 8:11 AMP.
What type of human being does this really make you? It makes us like God in the earth. Not that we are God, but we are sons of God and made in His image. We are “Godlike ones.” The Lord told Moses: “See, I make you as God to Pharaoh” – Exodus 7:1.

We speak as God’s earthly representatives. By releasing the voice of the Lord through the power of the spoken word, we can decree a thing and it will come to pass. It will happen. And it’s all done by speaking words of faith.

“You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways.” – Job 22:28 AMP
