“But IF God himself has taken up RESIDENCE in your life,
you can hardly be thinking more of yourself than of him.
Anyone who has not welcomed this invisible BUT clearly present God, the Spirit of Christ, won’t know what we’re talking about.
BUT for you who welcome him,
in whom he dwells—
even though you still experience all the limitations of sin—
ON GOD’S TERMS.” Romans 8:9-10 (MSG)
By living aligned to our God-given design.
God’s terms ARE His design for each and every one of us.
God designed His terms in such a way that, as we surrender (align ourselves) to HIM and HIS terms, we will experience the true satisfaction of our hearts AS He does all the “heavy-lifting.”
You see, it is the God-given Spirit of faith, from which GOD-sized ability, perspective, power, & wisdom comes so HE can accomplish bold/daring feats thru our willful surrendering to Him.
It is not so much about US doing great things for God,...
...BUT RATHER it is our GREAT God doing GREAT things through us!
Wherein HE gets the glory because these GREAT THINGS that are accomplished through us will be so apparently GOD-sized that our taking credit for such bold and daring feats would be utter nonsense.
“It stands to reason, doesn’t it, that if the alive-and-present God who raised Jesus from the dead moves into your life,
HE WILL DO the same thing IN you that HE DID in Jesus, bringing you alive to himself?
When God lives & breathes in you,
you are delivered from
that dead life.
With HIS Spirit living in you,
your body WILL BE as alive as Christ’s!”
Romand 8:11 MSG
How will this Truth change your outlook on your day, your role, your ministry, your circumstance, your situation?
What, in your life today, needs to be aligned, or realigned, to Him and His terms so such God-apparent “feats” can be loosed from Him in, around and through you?
What will be different about your thinking, your planning, your acting, your reacting because such an Awesome God is for you, not against you.
For His glory and your good?
Live aligned to your God-given Design
