“as ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him” Colossians 2:6
LIGHT FOR THE NOW: Faith is the basis of our walk with Christ.
We receive Christ Jesus only by faith. Faith is walking in the Word. When we walk in the Word, we are walking in Christ. Colossians 3:4 says Christ is your life; in Him you live, move and have your being. You are in the environment called Christ, and it is important that you live your life every day, conscious of this reality. Walking in Christ is beyond talking to Him in prayers when you have a need; rather, you are to have the present-hour consciousness that you are in Him, and He’s in you: you are all that He says you are, have all that He says you have, and can do all that He says you can. You must see yourself in this light and walk accordingly. You can only walk in the Light of the Lord by walking in His Word.
1 John 1:5-6 says, “this then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not know the truth”. You cannot walk in Christ and still walk in darkness at the same time. Darkness represents evil; all that limits and hinders. Jesus said, “…I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12). When Christ is your new world, you experience the life of Christ everyday. You are forever victorious, prosperous, and in health. Live in the consciousness that you are a victor in Christ Jesus. When God looks at you, He doesn’t see someone that is in need of deliverance. He sees you as strong, full of the Holy Ghost and power. He sees you as more than a conqueror. You have to agree with His picture and say Yes to the picture God has about you.
INSTRUCTION: Say yes to God’s picture about you.
PRAYER: Father, I say yes to all that you have called me to be, in Jesus name.
QUOTE: A born again child of God is not in need of deliverance.
