Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Life and life’s challenges have come to fortify us and lead us into the path of God’s revelation in and for our lives. The tribulations are not necessarily death blows to us and the vision of a well-lived and joy filled life, but instead a vehicle for us to take control over life and death, receiving all power. Christ’s experience of Calvary was not a death blow to His assignment, God’s purpose and plan, but a vehicle in which He took back the power of darkness and dispersed it by the revelation of God’s power, including His purpose and plan for Christ. As you and I Live By The Spirit, God uses the challenges of life to deliver a death blow to the darkness and negativity of life that attempts to hinder you from walking in the life and life more abundantly promised. As you follow the leading and guiding of the Spirit you send a death blow to anything that would separate you from God’s will and raise you out of that circumstance into a powerful position to LIVE. LIVE fully by taking the challenge of life as led by the Spirit and turn it around for the good of God’s calling, His purpose and plan, for your life! Die to that which separates you, the fear and life’s challenges, by being an overcomer; Live By The Spirit, and be raised from the dead to eternal life and the benefits of eternity experienced and enjoyed in your here and now, LIVE!
