Have you tasted of His Glory?
View the link above and then read below….
Do you ever feel like as Christians we are trying to wrestle down God or the Holy Spirit? Do you ever feel like God or the Holy Spirit is trying to wrestle us down and get us into the ring of His glory? Do you ever feel like it’s a struggle to get cooperated with Him? Do you ever feel like we just need to finally get synced up with where God is, what He is doing, get on His radar, on the same wavelength? Do you ever feel like we are trying to get Him to participate with us in the ring of life? Do you ever feel like if we could just tag team with Him for a little bit, we might be able to accomplish something great, even get a little taste of the Glory once in a while instead of the day old “cheeps”?”
Well, Be of Good Cheer Brethren, for Behold…….
Colossians 2:9-10 – “9For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. 10And you are IN Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [IN Christ you too are filled with the Godhead–Father, Son and Holy Spirit–and reach FULL spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].”
1 John 2:20b,27a – “20…for the Holy One has given you his Spirit, and all of you know the truth. 27But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives withIN you…”
1 Corinthians 6:17 – “17But the person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him.”
2 Peter 1:4 – “4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
John 17:21-26 – “21 I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. 22 “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. 23 I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me. 24 Father, I want these whom you have given me to be with me where I am. Then they can see all the glory you gave me because you loved me even before the world began! 25 “O righteous Father, the world doesn’t know you, but I do; and these disciples know you sent me. 26 I have revealed you to them, and I will continue to do so. Then your love for me will be in them, and I will be in them.””
Colossians 1:27-29 –“27 For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory. 28 So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect[a] in their relationship to Christ. 29That’s why I work and struggle so hard, depending on Christ’s mighty power that works within me.”
Philemon 1:6 – “6That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is IN you IN Christ Jesus.”
When we Abide IN Christ, He is IN us and we reach FULL Spiritual stature of the Godhead. Perhaps, as Christians we have been identifying with the lack of fullness because our hearts have condemned us as sinners who can never get INto the fullness of Christ? Perhaps we have been identifying with trying to get INto His grace, power, love, anointing, or presence because our experiences seem to tell us we don’t have those things?
Let us learn to not allow our hearts to condemn us that way, because that is of the devil. We must take captive those kind of thoughts, measure them against the word and make our minds and hearts obedient unto what Jesus, the Word, says is true(2 Corinthians 10:5). God is bigger than our hearts and we can have the same confidence IN Him that He has IN us(1 John 3:20-21). He wants us to identify with the fullness of the Spiritual stature that we reside IN. God wants us to realize that we have been anointed with His Spirit and that this anointing ABIDES! IT stays forever and never leaves or gets less or decreases. We don’t have to wrestle God into the ring of life, He is right there INside of us while we are in the ring of life. He is participating with us, let us behold that and recognize everything that is IN us IN Christ and start seeing that He is right there ONE with us. Let us see that He has given us His glory. Let us see that the Glory of God, God being glorified, IS Christ IN us! We have tasted of His Glory because Christ is IN us, let’s come into agreement with that truth. Now is the time, now is the day! Let’s taste(acknowledge) that glory, that fullness, that unity, that partaking of that divine nature, that perfection, that love………when we accept those things as truth with the utmost conviction despite what the circumstances of life say, we are Abiding IN Him.
We don’t have to try to figure out where He is, He is IN us and we are IN Him. We don’t have to try to figure out what He is doing or where He is going, we carry His presence, we know His word, and when we do His word, God is moving, working, and accomplishing the goodness of His pleasure, His good desires through us(Philippians 2:13).
So, let us Abide in this place of unity, glory, works, peace, and love IN Him.
