The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10).
Everyone born into the world is born with the natural human life. Man, however, is a spirit being and needs the supernatural life to function to his full potentials. That’s the reason Jesus came to give us another kind of life – the God-kind of life. Anyone that has received Jesus as Lord has this life (1 John 5:11).
The very fact that you’re born again means you’re not an ordinary person, because you have in you the same life that God has. The God-life is in you. When Jesus walked the earth, He had this consciousness. In John 6:38, He said, “For I came down from heaven….” What audacity! Everyone knew Him as the son of Mary and Joseph the Carpenter, yet He declared that He came down from heaven. His consciousness of His divinity controlled everything He said and did. Only a man who knows who He really is speaks this way.
This is how you must think, talk, and live. Be conscious of your divine heritage and identity. Become conscious of the God-life in you, and boldly speak accordingly. Philemon 1:6 tells us, “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.”
The Apostle John, emphasizing this, declared, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life…” (1 John 5:13).
God wants you to have the consciousness of the divine life in you. He wants you to be aware that, because of this divine life working in every fibre of your being, no one and nothing, can destroy you. Ephesians 2:1 (AMP) says, “And you [He made alive], when you were dead (slain) by [your] trespasses and sins.”
Think about that: you were dead, but now you’re alive in Christ. Can you see why you’re indestructible and invincible? Life works in you. This is the right mindset for the believer in Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ came to this world, died in your place, and was raised from the dead to give you a new life that’s not susceptible to defeat, failure or death.
You should, therefore, live happily and joyfully, as well as in glory, victory, righteousness, dominion, and excellence. Live the triumphant life for which the Lord Jesus died. He didn’t die for nothing; He died for you to enjoy the benefits of the new life He’s given you. Therefore, refuse to be defeated or mesmerized by Satan; refuse to let sickness ravage your body! Say no to poverty and lack. Every day, be conscious that divinity is at work in you! Glory to God!
