YOU ARE GOD'S RESIDENCE

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? (1 Corinthians 3:16)

1 Corinthians 6:19 says: do you not know that your body is the temple, the very Sanctuary  of the Holy Spirit who lives within you, whom you have received (as a gift) from God? You are not your own.
From the above scriptures, we understand that we are God's dwelling and His residence on earth. Of all the mighty truths in connection with pur redemption, this is the apex of the reality of our redemption; that after God himself recreated us, made us new creatures in Christ and made us His own, then He in the person of the Holy Ghost, makes our bodies His home. The believer through the new birth. No longer does God dwell in the earth-made Holiest of Holies. Our bodies have become His temple.

From scriptures we understand that God's presence was kept enclosed in the Holiest of Holies. No one dare approached there except the priest, and he did so only with great precaution. But through the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus which brought about our identification and oneness with Him, God ow makes His abode in believers. You don't have to feel it, but you have to believe this precious truth. God will never leave you. You have become one with the father, therefore you are His eternal dwelling place.

However, Jesus said, ".......that He (the Holy Spirit) may abide with you FORVER". (John 14:16). The Holy Spirit didn't come as guest to stay for just some few days. He didn't come on a vacation to dwell inside of you for just a short time. He came to dwell in you to be at home with you forever. Glory to God! Now you can walk through life fearlessly as a victor because God lives in you. You are a super human. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDIES: Philippians 2:13, 1John 4:4

PRAYER:
1. Thank you Lord for making me your dwelling place and a container of your fullness. Hallelujah!
2. I and the Father ate one, therefore failure and defeat can never be a part of my life in Jesus name.

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT

Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses(I Timothy 6:12).
In the journey of life, battles are not optional but mandatory. Even at birth, a child must be made to cry. At that point, he fights to overcome the force that wants to keep his lungs closed; so as to  live. Henceforth, various battles begin. 
When one becomes born again, the dynamics of the fight changes. He will still fight but this time around it is a good fight. The bible calls it the “Good Fight of Faith”. The fight is a good fight; the weaponry is also a unique one, FAITH. So a believer fights the good fight of faith, this fight is  termed a good fight because the end is determined from the beginning. Victory is guaranteed at the end. It is a fight to be won. Halleluyah!
It is like watching a replayed boxing match whose winner you already know. The same way, God is not bothered about what fight you may be involved …

LISTEN TO GODS' VOICE TODAY

"Today if you hear God’s voice speaking to you, do not harden your hearts against Him, as the people of Israel did when they rebelled against Him in the desert.” (Hebrew 3:15).
God speaks to his creation at all times. As we read the bible we see instances where God spoke to unbelievers, example; Saul,  Nebuchadnezzar etc. Jesus spoke to the wind and it obeyed him, He also spoke to the fig tree. How much more you his child. It is an error for you to say you can’t hear his voice. 
Jesus speaking in..…John 10:27 said; “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” 
As Gods' children, we have the capacity and the ability to hear His voice. But the challenge is; a lot of us do not pay attention and listen to what God is saying. Probably because we are waiting to have the Saul’s encounter of a voice speaking from heaven (Act 9:4).
God speaks to us in our spirit with a small still voice. Prophet Elijah had an encounter with this voice… II Kings 19:12 -13 “...and after the…

THE WISDOM OF GOD.

Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are His. And he changes the times and the seasons: He removes  Kings, and sets up Kings; He gives wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding. (Daniel 2:20-21)
This is profound words of Daniel praising God of all possibilities when he was with his friends narrating his experience to interpret and tell king Nebuchadnezzar of the dream he had. 
There is a wisdom from God that dethrones and enthrones. When you walk in the wisdom of God, you take your place in destiny; you get blessed by the same circumstances that destroy others;when  men are saying “There is a casting down”, You shall say “There is a lifting up”. The wisdom of God is superior to every other  wisdom. 
Five (5) important truths you need to know about the wisdom of God;  1. God is the source of wisdom  2. God is the fountain of wisdom  3. God is the giver of wisdom  4. God is the God of wisdom  5. God is the Author of …
