This message is a continuation of yesterday’s message which was discussing about building our lives on the basis of a healthy and accurate knowledge of God.
1. The quality of knowing God that we have will determine the various spiritual experiences that will occur in our lives.
2. People who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits (Daniel 11:32).
When believers build the foundation of confidence (life of faith) they have on the basis of the claim that Jesus made about His existence, consciously or unconsciously, they are actually building their spiritual lives on the foundation of Christ Himself (1 Corinthians 3:3). 10-11)!
What is needed now is the work of the Holy Spirit that will open our understanding of how to apply these statements of Jesus to our daily lives! So that the daily life that we live is no longer shackled by various shortcomings, weaknesses and limitations of what we already have or do not have outwardly. We live completely by relying on the Spirit’s direction or revelation of the Father’s will and our obedience response.
This is the ultimate key to living in the reality of His kingdom! We live as Christ lived! Imagine, the way Jesus solved the economic problems he was experiencing in his life.
Matthew 17:24-27 (NKJV) When they had come to Capernaum, those who received the temple tax came to Peter and said, “Does your Teacher not pay the temple tax?” He said, “Yes.” And when he had come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth take customs or taxes, from their sons or from strangers?” Peter said to Him, “From strangers.” Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are free. Nevertheless, lest we offend them, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you.”
Jesus knew very well the existence of His Father who had provided all the needs He would have in the spirit realm (Ephesians 1:3). All He had to do was follow the Holy Spirit’s direction to make what the Father provided in the spirit realm into something real in this outer realm – in this case Jesus told Peter to fish and the first fish he caught would bring the coin he needed.
By receiving the revelation of the Spirit that opens our understanding of how to apply the information about Christ’s existence to our daily lives, we are actually building our lives using divine material (1 Corinthians 3:11-13). This is what guarantees that whatever situations, conditions and circumstances we have to face in the future, we will definitely be able to live with victory and breakthrough!#ILoveGod
