“And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the first born from the dead; that in all things he might have pre-eminence.” – Colossians 1:18

LIGHT FOR NOW: You and Christ are one; just as the head and the body are one.

The Bible says that Christ is the head of the church and you as the Church is His body. So, Christ and His church are one just as the head and the body is one. You and Christ are one. You cannot say that God sees Christ, the head, as perfect but His body as imperfect. In other words, you cannot assume that Christ is accepted by God and His body not accepted by Him! The measure of Jesus’ acceptance by God is the measure of your acceptance by God. So, it makes no sense to say that the head is well but the body sick, that the head is rich but the body in lack or that the head is at rest but body full of stress. Friends, what Jesus is before God, that is exactly who you are to the father. As Jesus Christ is, so are you in this world (1 John 4:17). Today, God wants you to claim on Christ being your head. Start believing that by all His perfection, and the delight and joy that He brings to the Father’s heart, He has set your account- Jesus has put you right with God! And you will begin to realize that as Jesus is the sweet smelling savor to the Father, so are you.

The more you begin to see that you are one with Christ, the more you will realize that whatever you need right now, He is dispensing it to you. If you are sick in your body, Christ your head will impart His healing virtue to you. If you lack wisdom, Christ your head imparts His wisdom to you. If you lack anything, Christ your head will give you His exceeding riches. The Bible says “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” (3 John 1:2). Christ as your head is the perfect will of the Father, so are you as His perfect body. In God’s perfect will, there is no sickness, poverty or death. So there should be no sickness, poverty or death traceable to you because you are God’s perfect will. There should be nothing missing, nothing lacking and nothing broken in you because in Him you move, live and have your being. Beloved, have this rich mindset and revelation that Christ and you are one. You can never be separated from Christ your head from whom comes all the supply you need. He is the source of power, wisdom, honour, glory, riches, strength, provision, blessings and health. Hallelujah!

INSTRUCTION: Never detach from Christ!

CONFESSION: Whatever did not conquer Christ cannot conquer me and as He is so I am, In Jesus name.

QUOTE: Reading with zero observation is no reading at all.
