Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? – 1 Corinthians 3:16

LIGHT FOR NOW:  God is not WITH you; God is IN you.

There is a lot of misunderstanding when we say that God is in a man. Some people try to imagine coming down bodily to live in a man. This is a gross display of ignorance. God is a spirit. To have the idea of seeing God coming down in bodily form to dwell in a man is to be carnal and ignorant. The truth is that when you receive Christ, you were born into Him. Your spirit became united with His Spirit in one inseparable union. God is not with you; God is in you.  The fullness of the Godhead tabernacles in Jesus.  He is the full expression of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. In Christ, the totality of deity is united. This is what happens to us in Christ. The Bible in 1 Corinthians chapter 6 verse 17 says, “he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit”. Also, 1 John chapter 4 verse 17 says, “…as he is, so are we in this world”. This means that as Jesus is filled with God, so are you who believes in Christ. The Bible says John chapter 1 verse 16, “…of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace”.

We have received in all fullness everything that is of deity in Christ Jesus. Live in this consciousness that you are full of God. You are the physical body of the living God. God walks on the earth through you. You are the full expression of Him. 2 Corinthians chapter 6:16 says, “…for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them”. When you move, that is God moving in you. Your hands are His hands; your fingers are His fingers. You are totally immersed in Him just as He is immersed in you. God now expresses Himself through you. Therefore, you are the full expression of God. Walk in this consciousness every day of your life and begin to see your life profess His glory. If God cannot be stranded, you that is in Him has no right to be stranded. If God cannot be defeated, you that is in Him cannot be defeated. You must know that you are not of this world. Christ is your new world. In Him you live, move and have your being. You live in an environment called Christ. Therefore, whatever affects the world cannot affect you because the greater One lives in you.  It is this mindset that will guarantee your victories over the battles of life. Halleluiah!!!

INSTRUCTION: Live in the consciousness that you are the full expression of God.

PRAYER: I am filled with divinity. Every fiber of my being is of God. I am the moving house of the Almighty God and I bear His grace, glory and righteousness impacting my world with the glory of His divine presence, in Jesus Name.  Amen.

QUOTE: You are the corporate headquarters of divinity.
