I AM blessed, highly favored,
a recipient of Your grace.
What is God’s dream / purpose for you? People go throughout their lives never finding their purpose in God. We are not here for nothing. God has created and purposed us for something. God has called you for something unique. You were born for a purpose. Just as each snowflake is unique, everyone has a unique purpose that nobody can fulfill but you. People don’t know what is their role and what is God’s role. The power of God is waiting for you to become who you are meant to be. God wants the best of you to manifest in the lives of other people. God’s dream for all is that you find yourself in Christ. We must understand and perceive and be who God created us to be. Christ the hope of glory, is inside you. [Colossians 1:27] We must understand: Who Christ is, who we are in him, and who he is in us. We must understand CHRIST IN ME. We are called to manifest as sons of God.
We are His workmanship, created for good works. [Ephesians 2:10]
I will re-create you and put my Spirit and my power within you.
When you are reborn - born of the Spirit - you become a new creation born in the spirit. The new person is not born of the flesh, but of God. The new birth is a spiritual birth. We are born in the Spirit. We receive God’s Spirit and His fullness. Spirit-man comes in the fullness of God. Spirit has all knowledge and understanding. Gravity works whether we understand it or not. God has imparted things within us whether we understand it or not. Spirit-man carries the blessings of God. You need to stay in His Word for His words are Spirit and life.
There is no time in Spirit-man - he is timeless, has eternal life and lives forever. The new creation is not linked to the past. You are set free from the past - from habits, addictions, generational curses, karma etc. When you are reborn, the old is gone and you become a new creation. No curses, sickness, problems can attach to Spirit. Problems can only attach to the soul/mind. Doubts and negative things cannot hook onto the Spirit of God, just as darkness and light cannot be together in the same place.
We have been pulled from darkness into His marvelous light. [Colossians 1:12]
LIFE IS SPIRITUAL
No weapon formed against me shall prosper.
There are two realms of existence: the physical realm, which we are physically BORN into and can see; and the spiritual realm, which we are spiritually REBORN into and can only see with the eyes of faith. The physical realm is our natural lineage; and the spiritual realm is our spiritual lineage. Life is spiritual and the spiritual realm is the primary reality. We must learn to live in this reality.
When we are born, we consist of body, soul and Spirit. When we are reborn, we are born of God and become Spirit-man first. The order changes and Spirit comes first, then soul and then body. Spirit-man is filled with the Holy Spirit. Our goal is to align the three with Spirit on top, so that our body listens to our soul, and our soul listens to our Spirit. Our soul includes our mind: thoughts and emotions, will and will power, intellect and reason, decisions and memory.
With the Spirit we believe. Faith operates at the level of Spirit. Just as gravity is a law, so is faith a spiritual law. Faith is the substance of things not seen. [Hebrews 11:1] The more we understand, the more faith we have. Faith comes from hearing the Word of God. This is why it is so important to study the Bible so we can know the Word of God and what it promises us. You must imprint it on your soul/mind until you believe it. Then you can become it.
Doubt happens at the level of the soul/mind, and it blocks the flow of power from the spiritual realm. Our soul/mind generally takes information from the WORLD and passes this onto the body. We must renew our minds and train them to take information from the WORD and pass this information onto the body. We manifest what we think and believe, so what the soul/mind passes onto the body is very important. We are used to acting from our physical senses. We must learn to act from our spiritual senses. To do this we must RENEW OUR MINDS ie we must change the way we think. We have the MIND OF CHRIST and we must start to use it!
RENEW YOUR MIND
You must put on the new man.
You cannot operate in the spiritual world with your soul/mind as it doesn’t work in the realm of Spirit. The natural man cannot understand the things of Spirit. Spiritual knowledge comes only through the Spirit. You must renew your mind and your thinking. You must make an effort. You must take action. You must clear your old mind-set and ways of thinking. This is a continuing process until you reach the fullness of Christ. Dwell on the Word and make it yours. Read a Bible verse until you become it.
1 CORINTHIANS 2:9-10: Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit.
Renewing of our minds in the Word of God increases our faith and makes it the glue between our Spirit and our body. The more our soul/mind and body align under our Spirit, the more our mind will obey our Spirit and our body will obey our mind. When the three are aligned and working properly together, we produce the best results. The Word says: If I believe in Jesus, then I am an over-comer of this world. I am more than a conqueror. Greater is he in me than he who is in the world. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Act in hope as if already here. This knowledge is imparted into our Spirit through the Word of God. Our soul links our Spirit to our body. The body obeys our soul/mind, so it is vital that our mind gets true spiritual knowledge from our Spirit. The body then confesses and becomes a physical manifestation of what we believe. When we are properly aligned, then information passes from our Spirit to our soul/mind to our body and the physical body must follow.
Life is spiritual. Man is a Spirit being. The Kingdom of God operates according to spiritual laws. We need to operate from the spiritual realm. The real you is Spirit-man within you. The real kingdom is the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is within you. Don’t try to rule this world from this world. Learn how to rule this world from the Kingdom of God that is within you. Then you work from a position of victory. Then you work with the power of God. May it be so!
COLOSSIANS 2:9-10: You are in Him. You are made full and have come to fullness of life. You reach full spiritual stature. You have full authority over the things of this world. You have full authority over Satan. In Christ you are filled with the Godhead.
I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST
I am more than a conqueror.
We must break down strongholds: confusion (our mind spins in different directions and goes this way and that way), imaginations (we fabricate stories and then believe them), negative thoughts etc. We must cast them down with the power of the Word. We must fill our minds with the love of God. We must rely on the Word of God and not on our minds. We must believe God’s Word and that is how we honor Him. When you honor God, he will honor you. He will give you understanding and new revelation.
2 CORINTHIANS 10:4-5: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exults itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every though into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
Strongholds keep many people in promises. A promise is a hope and not a reality because it hasn’t manifested yet. We want to receive the promises of God. Read the Word until you believe it, become it, be it and do it. The Word of God says: YOU ARE MORE THAN A CONQUEROR. The mind doubts this. Choose: do you want to believe your mind or believe the Word of God? Do you want to stay in the promise or receive the blessing? Cast down the stronghold in your mind. Declare from your mouth: I am healed. I have received. The more aligned you are, the quicker it happens. Listen to the promises of God contained in His Word > believe (have faith, make a conscious decision to believe) > believe and you shall receive > take action and walk in the promise (live your faith, become it, be it). Your prayer will change from ‘Please God do this and that’ to ‘Thank you God’.
God is in control of everything, but He is not controlling everything. We must speak His Spirit into existence. We need to do this. God wants us to do this. We must take up the responsibility. Believe and receive. It is your choice. God needs your faith to work with. You must believe what God says about you and not what you think, what the world says, or what other people say about you. Look to God for your strength and your power. We must operate from this mindset. The Devil comes to kill, steal and destroy. He brings doubt and negativity and tries to break down the good. The Word says: I AM MORE THAN A CONQUEROR. Knowledge of the Word brings faith and turns ‘I wish’ and ‘I want’ into I AM.
