[The Glory Unveiled]
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. ( 1John 4:4 )
Every reality in Christ and for that matter in the word of God is enjoyed or engaged when we come to fully comprehend and are persuaded that what we know is truth. But unless that happens, whatever we confess or read in the word will just be a statement of fact. The scripture actually says all things are ours, but is that statement real in every believers experience? The honest answer is no, that is not the case with every Believer. Our christian and spiritual experiences are defined and limited to the ambit of God’s character and nature revealed to us by Christ through His finished works. The truth is that, the Spirit of Christ in us is greater than the powers and influences of the cosmos but this truth becomes reality only when we encounter this word as reality; when the person of that word becomes real to us in experience. Anyone can profess that “greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world” but it would take more than a loud voice to experience this truth as an everyday reality. The sign of one who has translated this truth into reality is one who is living the overcomer’s life. Such a person is not a slave to the systems of the world because the Spirit that overcame the grave dwells in them. The Spirit of Christ continually makes them live above all the troubles of life by offering them the peace that surpasses every way of knowledge. The Lord Jesus Himself in the spirit of this reality said that the devil comes but has nothing in Him. We have overcome the world in Christ, now let us manifest it.
Prayer_Bead: Father in heaven, thank you for the Spirit of Christ, resident in me. I pray for the grace to experience the reality of all Christ overcame for me to enjoy.
