The secret to power with God, is in our intimacy and passion towards him. There are no short cuts in developing a relationship; it takes a lifetime.
A person who is dead to the flesh, doesn’t care about what people say about or against them. If they are talking bad about you, that is your proof you are doing something right for GOD!
If you are truly dead to the flesh, don’t demand an apology! Realize you are dead and your life is hid in Christ.
For your sake, release the offense and let them go! Why? Because the longer you hold onto the person with a grudge, the more your crucified flesh comes back to life! Once done, you can easily get into trouble and loose your sharp edge!
We becoming dull without feeling and then we find our self having a spirit of offense that sets up squatters rights!! Forgive the person and let them go!!! Give no place to the devil in your life!
We want our life hid in Christ for He covers us by his blood!
So while we are in this life as we die daily to our flesh, we should see ourselves as cracked earthen pots that house the glory of God! We host the King of glory on the throne of our hearts as we willingly host and breathe his presence.
Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church: Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God; Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present everyman perfect in Christ Jesus: Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily. Col 1:24-29 KJV
“I am calling you away closer in intimacy and dependence on ME says the Lord. The closer you remain in me the further away you get from this world’s system. I AM calling you to live from a different system. My system, says the Lord!”
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
