“Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations” – Psalm 90:1
LIGHT FOR NOW: Now that you are a son of God, Christ becomes your new world.
We have come to know from our previous studies that to be in Christ is to be in the fullness of God. A man in Christ is the habitation or dwelling place of God. The fullness of God dwells in Christ. Therefore, as a son of God in Christ Jesus, the fullness of God becomes resident in you. You are not to fear as people who do not have this knowledge of their identity in Christ. When you lack knowledge of your identity in Christ, you suffer identity crisis. You must know that the seal of God is upon you as His son. This seal is what gives you the assurance that you are a son of God. The seal therefore is that which separates you from danger; you’re protected and preserved by the power of the Holy Spirit; the devil will have no place in your life when you understand this. If you’re attacked by sickness, disease or infirmity, it’s your place to command it to leave your body.
“In Christ” is the signature and handiwork of God. So irrespective of the crises in the world today, in Christ we have peace, assurance, safety and security. Your dwelling place in the spirit is Christ; Christ is a place in God. Now that you are a son of God, Christ becomes your new world. In Him you live, move and have your being. You are an offspring (Acts 17:28). It is wrong to hear some preachers say that God uses the crises in the world to demonstrate His power, so that man can learn in a hard way; this is not true of God. God does not use crises against His children and the moment you understand this, fear will have no place in your life. God expressed His perfect love toward us by bringing us into Christ at salvation. This is what preserves us; we’re kept, protected and preserved in Christ from harm, decay, loss or destruction and you must make this your mindset.
INSTRUCTION: You are sealed with the Holy Ghost; acknowledge this!
PRAYER: I affirm that I have in me the Christ consciousness which is why I am invincible and unstoppable in life, in Jesus Name, Amen.
QUOTE: God does not use crisis against His children.
