Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord – Romans 6:11
If you’re born again you’re alive to God. This isn’t so for those who aren’t born again; they’re spiritually dead, being totally alienated from the life of God. They’re the ones the Master referred to in Matthew 8:22 & Luke 9:60, when He said, “…let the dead bury their dead.” The “spiritually dead” aren’t alive to God; they’re not awakened to the Fatherhood of God and to the reality of the Spirit realm. If you’ve never been born again, I encourage you to give your life to Christ even now; just say, “Lord Jesus, come into my heart to be the Lord of my life.”
When you’re born again, the Holy Spirit becomes real to you, and you’re awakened to the efficacy of the Word of God. Suddenly, you recognize Jesus Christ not only as Lord of your life, but also as one with whom you have rich and intimate fellowship! You become awakened to God’s realm of life; a realm that’s beyond this world. No wonder Jesus said you’re not of this world (John 15:19).
When you’re alive to God His light shines in your spirit; His Word works in you: you become alive to His healing power, His righteousness, prosperity, and wisdom! It’s easy for the Lord to instruct and guide you from within; because you’re tuned-in to Him.
For the rest of the day, especially when you get the chance to be alone, say repeatedly to yourself, “I’m alive to God.” You’d be amazed at what’ll happen in your spirit! The consciousness of the victory of Christ— His power, glory, love, and grace will increase in your life! You’d become more cognizant of the dominion of the Spirit of God in your life. Blessed be God!
I’m alive to God; having been brought into fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ. I belong in the Kingdom of God’s dear Son, where I reign and rule by the power of the Spirit! I thank you Father, for bringing me into such a beautiful place of glory, beauty, honour, and prosperity, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
