Meditation Thought: “For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children. And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.” (Romans 8:16-17)
“Trust Me when you have pain – for the pain is caused by the digging out of the infection of sin that has set in your body, your mind, your spirit, your emotions. When the last of the infection is rooted out, the health of righteousness pervades and prevails.
In this world, the process is constant but when you shed the physical body for the new body, the only state of the new body is health in the Spirit, unchallenged by sin.
Yield to Me – relax whatever the moment brings forth, for I am your loving Father who desires above all that you prosper in My care and in My teaching.
Seek My will and obey Me – this is the process of being crucified with Christ, for you must go against your own sinful nature, and the battle is constant and at times very difficult, for that sinful nature can be very hard and very misleading as to its true nature.
But you are My heir, and knowing you are My heir – go with confidence to claim your inheritance: eternal life, yes – but the full life in the Spirit now:
- sin conquered
- soul prospering
- body prospering
- a mind renewed in Christ
- emotions guilt-free and rejoicing in My blessings and works in your life and those whom you know.
I will lead if you will follow – do not turn back to sin, to self-will, to rebellion, to selfishness and pride – but follow Me to your new nature in Christ, reflecting the character of your Father, expressed in your unique personality and expressed where you are, and delighting in the doing of the works.”
