…For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people (2 Corinthians 6:16 NKJV).
The real essence of Christianity is the fact that Christ literally lives in you by the Holy Spirit. That’s the reason Jesus came, to make fellowship and oneness with God possible. Through that fellowship, we were given eternal life—the life and nature of God. Therefore, you’re by no means an ordinary person. You’re full of God; full of His love, His grace and His wisdom.
This has to become a reality in your spirit; otherwise, you won’t be living the true Christian life. You have to be Christ-in-me conscious. I’m referring to a consciousness about life where all you know is Christ; everything you see is Christ. The Bible says Christ is your life (Colossians 3:4). Christ is everything. Functioning with this mindset will literally transport you to the realm where you have no consciousness of need, failure or fear; you’re on top and in victory every day, every hour, every minute and every second, because you carry God in you! You and God are the eternal winning team. Hallelujah!
But because many aren’t “Christ-in-me” minded, they struggle through life, “looking” for God; “going” to Him, and reaching out to Him for help. Whereas, the Bible says, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). Everything and anything you could ever need is inside the greater One that lives in you. What you need is to become conscious of His indwelling presence and the wisdom He pilots you with for success and greatness.
Don’t ask Him for wisdom; He’s your wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30). Don’t ask Him for help; He’s your Help and your Helper. Don’t ask Him for strength; He’s your strength. Don’t go anywhere without the consciousness that you’re a God-carrying vessel. You’ll be amazed at the sudden transformation: the grace, divine aura, influence and power that you’ll exude. Why? In the spiritual realm, the first principle is knowledge; the second is consciousness, and the third is speaking; voicing. That’s the reason this knowledge is coming to you today, for you to have the consciousness that you carry God in you, and then declare accordingly.
I’m not ordinary, for the Greater One lives in my spirit, soul and body! I’m full of God! I’m strong, sound, full of His love, wisdom and divine essence. My life is full of grace. Hallelujah!
1 Corinthians 3:16 (KJV)
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
Colossians 1:26-27 (KJV)
26 [Even] the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
27 To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
