We are to be the glory of His heavenly essence upon the earth. As we allow God to expose the indifference and distractions in our lives, His light and nature will supernaturally come forth in power through each of us as we reject our worldly agendas and bring forth our DESTINY in Christ.
Romans 9:23 - "That He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory."
How does this happen? Is it because of all the good things that we do? Our perfect lives? Do we need to ascend to some measure of spiritual greatness to be used by God? Absolutely not. It is the grace of God that has made us worthy to be vessels of His presence. It is not about our perfection, our giftings, our great ability or whatever else we think might help qualify us for His work. He uses each of us WHERE WE ARE because we trust in His grace and LEARN HOW TO DEPEND ON HIS SPIRIT -- His love flowing through us into the lives of others.
INCORPORATED INTO HIS FLOW
Ephesians 3:7 - "Of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effective working of His power."
It is not about our performance. He will use us powerfully because of His grace. In our walk with God one of the most valuable keys we can learn is to "hide in Him". What does this mean? God is our hideout. As we learn to yield ourselves to the Spirit, we become a hidden people incorporated into the flow of His desires.
Benefits of Hiding Out With God:
THE FINISHED WORK OF CHRIST
Colossians 3:3 - "For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God."
When Christ died, we died. When Christ rose, we rose with Him. Christ is now seated at the right hand of God and us with Him in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). All the work is finished. When we hideaway with God we become absorbed into His very life. With our hearts yielded to the Holy Spirit we become conduits of His presence into the earth. God will use us in power because we are dedicated to understanding and carrying out our calling in Christ. It is Christ in us the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). Just as Paul said in Galatians 2:20, "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me," his life was absorbed into Christ as he gained ground for God’s Kingdom in the earth.
I take time to rest, meditating on the work Christ has accomplished for me so far as I seek to bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom.
I worship God from a position of being hidden in Christ.
I live in such a way that nothing ever gets bigger than my consciousness of God's presence.
He has called us not to "wonder about the future," but to create it through the knowledge of His living Word and prayer accompanied by action! Our Father gives His access to the future right now. To bring manifestation is to pray and advance the reality of God's Kingdom in the earth as we co-labor with Him.
"Pray, then, in this way:.......on earth as it is in Heaven." - Matthew 6:9,10
We cannot afford to have a moment in our lives when circumstances distract us from tending the fire of and advancing God’s purpose for our life.
