The Spirit Of God In Us (Romans 8:15)

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Romans 8:15 (KJV)

The moment we got born again, God’s Spirit has come to live on the inside of us. It is the Spirit of God in our spirit that draws us unto God, that enables us to fellowship with Him. And so when we approach God, let us approach Him as He truly is: our loving heavenly Father whose good pleasure it is to give us the kingdom. Let us remove any fear, guilt or feelings of condemnation; and let us not doubt but for one second that it is God’s will for us to be whole in every area of our lives.

Christ Is Our Sufficiency (1 Corinthians 1:30)

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

1 Corinthians 1:30 (KJV)

Jesus has become our wisdom, our righteousness, our sanctification, and our redemption. And so let us remember to not look to ourselves, but to Jesus. Being in Christ means that He has become our sufficiency unto whatever need may arise. As we meditate daily on this truth, accepting it in our hearts by faith, we will see the fruits of it showing up in our lives.

Fellow Laborers With God (1 Corinthians 3:9)

For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God’s building.

1 Corinthians 3:9 (AMP)

Every born again believer has an assignment from God, we have a role to play when it comes to God fulfilling His plans and purposes in this earth realm. And as we yield to God’s plans and purposes for our life, we ourselves are molded, shaped and developed in the process, the Holy Spirit working in us to make us more fully into all He has called us to be.

Focus On Jesus (1 Corinthians 1:9)

God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Corinthians 1:9 (KJV)

Everything ultimately comes down to our relationship with Jesus. We were called into fellowship with Jesus, and the more we fellowship with Him, the stronger our trust and confidence in Him becomes. The more we take our focus off of ourselves and place it on Jesus, the more receptive and available are we to seeing God’s goodness and unmerited favor in our lives.

No Longer Our Own (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

What? know yet not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own. For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (KJV)

When we gave our lives to Jesus, His Holy Spirit took up residence within us. This means God’s presence and power now dwells in us. And so let us live every day knowing that we belong to the Lord, that we have been bought with a price, thereby opening ourselves to the life of victory and service to the kingdom that God has called us to live.

From Glory To Glory (2 Corinthians 5:18)

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 5:18 (NKJV)

The more we behold Jesus, the more are we transformed into His image and likeness. As we seek His will in all of the areas of our life, we will find ourselves being led from glory to glory through the wisdom and counsel of the Holy Spirit.

Focus On Jesus (1 Corinthians 1:9)

God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Corinthians 1:9 (KJV)

Everything ultimately comes down to our relationship with Jesus. We were called into fellowship with Jesus, and the more we fellowship with Him, the stronger our trust and confidence in Him becomes. The more we take our focus off of ourselves and place it on Jesus, the more receptive and available are we to seeing God’s goodness and unmerited favor in our lives.

A Wellspring Of Life (Isaiah 58:11)

And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

Isaiah 58:11 (KJV)

There is a continual wellspring of life available to us as we keep our eyes on Jesus, realizing that He alone is our strength, our source, our comforter, and our provider. When we daily fellowship with God in the Spirit, and let His Word fill our hearts, we will find ourselves equipped and empowered to not only handle all that we are called to do, but we will also be a spring of life through which the light of Christ can flow into our world.

No Condemnation (Romans 8:1)

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:1 (KJV)

There is no condemnation when we understand who we are in Christ, when we no longer walk according to who we have been in the flesh, but according to who He has made us to be in Him. Condemnation must flee as we receive the immeasurable gift of God’s love for us in and through the finished works of Jesus.
