RHAPSODY OF REALITIES TEEVO DEVOTIONAL;
16TH APRIL, 2018;
AWAKENED TO THE FATHER ;
YOU’RE ALIVE TO THE MYSTERIES OF GOD’S KINGDOM;
TO THE BIBLE – Romans 6:11
“Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Why did the Apostle Paul make such a bold statement in our opening verse? He says reckon yourself dead to sin, but alive to God. This is because in the mind of God, when Jesus died, you died in Him. Guess what? Something beautiful happened afterwards: God raised Jesus from the dead, and you were raised together with Him.
That was what happened when you were born again; you were awakened to Papa God; you came alive in the spirit. Now you can understand the realities of God’s Kingdom; you can know the things of God, because you’re alive to Him. The one who isn’t born again is spiritually cut off from God. He isn’t awakened to the realities of life in God’s realm, but not so with you (Luke 8:10). It’s your heritage to understand the things of God, because you’re born again, and you have the life of God in you. Hallelujah!
There isn’t any spiritual reality you can’t understand. Never say, “You know, I really don’t understand the things of God”; rather, you ought to say, “I’m alive to God; therefore, I have an understanding heart; I understand the things of God.” Say this repeatedly until it takes a hold of your being.
You don’t have to walk in darkness or ignorance concerning the Kingdom-life, your inheritance, rights, benefits and privileges in Christ Jesus. The Bible says, “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God” (1 Corinthians 2:12). What an awesome blessing: the Holy Spirit is in you to teach you all things and unveil the mysteries of life to you.
1 Corinthians 2:7; Matthew 13:10-11
Dear Father, thank you for granting me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of you; the eyes of my understanding are enlightened to the realities and truths of your glorious Kingdom. And now, I know the hope of your calling and the riches of the glory of your inheritance for me in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
