“11If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.”
Romans 8:11 English Standard Version (ESV)
Jesus is alive, and you are alive with Him! His resurrection life is yours. His resurrection life – a power so strong that it conquered death – now resides, dwells, lives in you. The resurrection life and power of God lives in you. There is more power inside a believer than most believers realize. This resurrection life inside of you is giving life to your mortal body; in other words, the spiritual reality (resurrection power in you) is affecting your physical reality (mortal or physical body).
“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.”
Colossians 1:27 King James Version (KJV)
“27God [in His eternal plan] chose to make known to them how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in and among you, the hope and guarantee of [realizing the] glory.”
Colossians 1:27 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Having a revelation of “Christ in you” will cause you to rise up and reign in life. Having this revelation will help you realize the glory that is within you – that there is an all-powerful God living inside of you.
“…He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”
1 John 4:4b New King James Version (NKJV)
No matter what circumstance you are facing, focus on the truth that Jesus is alive and He is within you. Jesus is bigger than any problem, any bondage and any sickness you could ever face, and He is within you.
You are not helpless, powerless or needy. You do not need more power to reign in this life. All you need is a revelation of what you already have – a revelation of who is inside of you! Like Paul, we should pray for a deeper revelation and understanding of what we already have in Christ (Ephesians 1:16-23). This will cause us to reign in life.
Thought to focus on for the day:
Jesus is alive and He lives in me! I have resurrection power on the inside of me. I have Jesus in me. Therefore, I can reign in life.
