But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you
When faced with increasingly challenging times, we can easily be overwhelmed. Our hearts can faint within us. Our perseverance can fall short. Our faith can begin to cool off. But when His Spirit is alive and abiding in us, He will fill us with can-do belief in our ability to overcome. When the Spirit of the Living God dwells in a believer, He will raise us up and fill us with strength and vitality to fulfill the purposes of our Father.
In fact, Ephesians 3:20-21 assures us that God will do “exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think” according to the power that is already working away deep inside us. It is not something beyond our grasp, nothing for which we need to wait. His Spirit is ALREADY at work in us and through us.He will strengthen our spirits mightily through His Spirit. He will ground us in His love and fill us to the richest measure with God Himself. That same Spirit will give life and power to us!
The Spirit that raised up Jesus dwells in us, we have the assurance that that same life-giving Spirit will give life to our bodies and situations. He gave life to Christ, He gives life in our hearts and bodies and He will give life to our resurrected body in glory in that new day.
I Declare: Today, I walk in the consciousness that the same spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives inside of me. There is no dead in and around me, nothing dies in my hands. The life giving spirit flows through my life,I am strong and mighty. I have the same power that raised Christ from the dead dwelling inside of me. I am a weapon of righteousness in a world of darkness.
Ignite Thought: The believers in Christ are not only God’s possessions, they are His dwelling place!
