RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL
THE LIFE OF THE SPIRIT IN YOU .
Saturday, September 23rd , 2017
And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness (Romans 8:10).
In the verse above, the Apostle Paul wasn’t questioning whether Christ was in the brethren in Rome; rather, he stirred their minds to an important reality. He wanted them to know that Christ in them was a vital reality, and a guarantee of a life of health and vitality. He said if Christ is in you, though your body may be weak and sickly, He’ll vitalize it.
Paul’s conclusion is that when you have the Holy Spirit, you shouldn’t be sick, because your body is vitalized by the same Spirit: _*“…if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken*_ (vitalize, make alive) _*your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you”*_ (Romans 8:11). The work of the Holy Spirit in vitalizing your physical body is in the “now”; it’s not futuristic; it’s not something that will happen when we get to heaven; He works in you now! Glory to God!
The Holy Spirit is the power of God; His presence in you has settled the matter of sickness and weakness forever, for He works and walks in you, to “fix” any anomaly in your physical body. His life in you makes you unconquerable. He’s the One who raised the dead body of Jesus back to life; and now, He lives in you in all of His glory, power and majesty.
Today, it makes no difference how much your physical body may have been ravaged or battered by sickness or disease; what you need is the consciousness of the Healer in you—the Holy Spirit. He in you is your hope to rise and walk again, and live perpetually in divine health.
The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in me, and has given life, vitality and vigour to my physical body. I’m nourished, refreshed, and rejuvenated every day by the Holy Spirit, who perambulates in me to keep me in health, righteousness, and in the glory of God. Blessed be God!
