Topic: Be Conscious Of Your Divinity [Saturday, January 28th]
_*Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).*_
Theveryfact 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 He came down from heaven. 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. You hail from God: _*“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them…”*_ (1 John 4:4). When it says, “Ye are of God…,” it doesn’t mean you’re on God’s side, but that your origin is in God. Your ancestry or parentage is Christ. So, like the Lord Jesus, speak with confidence and authority in affirming who you are.
In John 8:12, He said, _*“I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”*_ What a statement! But did you know Jesus also spoke about you and said: “You are the light of the world?” (Matthew 5:14). Therefore, you ought to declare with boldness, “I am the light of the world!” Be conscious of who you are in Christ; be bold to call yourself what God has called you.
Jesus gave us an example to follow; of how to live victoriously in the earth. His consciousness of His divinity controlled everything He said and did. You also can live as successfully as He did by following this principle. 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.”*_
*Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the eternal life that has been granted me, and I live that life now. Because I’m conscious of the life of God in me, no sickness, disease or infirmity can successfully stay in my body. The life of Christ is evidently manifested in me, from glory to glory, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.*
