Today I thought about what to write that would inspire and encourage you to keep pressing forward.  The word that resonated in my heart was “Christ lives in you”.  You can go on living a normal life,  day in day out forgetting that Jesus Christ is alive in you and His demonstrating power is at work in you.

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27

You are the image and likeness of Christ Jesus, Because you are a living being ( not dead being) in Christ Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit that is at work you within you, your actions, reactions and works should display His empowerment and enablement to fulfil His works on earth as it has already been established in Heaven (Acts 17:28, Matthew 6:10)

“A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. 20 At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. 2He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” John 14:19-21

You in Him (Christ), I (Christ ) in you, what a strong  connecting relationship we have.  It does not end there, it extends to our Heavenly Father, I (Christ ) in My Father, means that Jesus Christ had an intimate relationship with our Father in Heaven that thought Him to be obedient to His Word, even on the cross He was still obedient.  He accomplished all that He was called to do on earth and said “It is finished ” (John 19:28-30 ).  Because of His sacrificial love for you and me.

Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father are one, they work in unity.  The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one that bears witness in Heaven (John 10:30, 1 John 5:7).  The Holy Spirit is the guarantee that we have direct access to our Heavenly Father, Holy Spirit is our Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener and  Standby who guides us in the whole truth received from Heavenly Father (John 16:13).  As Christ lives  in you, the Holy Spirit helps you to walk the journey of faith and perseverance through it all.  For you are not meant to do it alone.

Therefore do not work in your own effort but the with help of the Holy Spirit by His grace, walking in obedience to every instruction revealed to you by our Heavenly Father .

MY PRAYER FOR YOU

I pray that you will come to a solid understanding of the heights and depths of the love of Christ.  His glory shall be unveiled in you so that we might understand His abundant grace.  My He continually empower, enable you to walk in complete obedience by His grace fulfilling all that He has called you to do.  May you have a perfect knowledge and understanding of how to walk in the boldness and authority of His power is at work in you because Christ lives in you.  May you walk from strength to strength, glory to glory and faith to ever increasing faith and grace for grace every step of the way.  Amen

When the enemy fills your mind with words of destruction, confusion, intimidation, degradation, humiliation and likes. You need to take authority over your mind, cleansing  your mind in the precious blood of Jesus.  For the battlefield is in the mind, whatever thoughts or words that is not in alignment with His Word has to be rendered permanently void in the mighty name of Jesus.  Begin to boldly confess Christ Identity in you.

It could be that friends, families or loved ones have spoken negatively over your life.  Consequently this has caused you to loose your voice to speak up or stand up for your right and frustrate, depress, oppress  and terminate every plans and seed sown in your life.  You need to know and understand what the Word says about you.  When you discover Christ Identity and have a divine knowledge of Him, it gives you the ability to confess Christ identity in you, walk boldly and confidently in His image.  Everyday when  I look into the mirror I confess His identity in me.  I speak of His love, faith, power, authority and the fullness of Him.

The power of life and death is in the tongue, the power to build and uproot, establish and destroy.  It is time to confess Christ Identity in you, speak up, speak out and stand out that those around you would know who you are in Christ

So how you use the words that proceeds from your mouth is essential.  Do not let your emotions take control of your thoughts but permit the Holy Spirit full access to your heart.  Meditate on His Word, day and night and let His Word be solidly rooted in your heart.  When His Word becomes a part of you, you begin to declare what the Word of God states over every situation, command your morning and activate the solution  rather than confessing the problem.

Having a divine knowledge of who you in Christ is the key to unleashing your breakthrough.  When you confess Christ Identity in you, the atmosphere in the spirit realm changes to fall into alignment with His will then at the set appointed time it manifests in your life as it has already been established in heaven.  So why don’t you confess Christ identity in you and receive your breakthrough

 

CONFESSION

I publicly announce that Christ lives in me, the hope of glory.  His power is at work within me therefore I have the power and authority to decree a thing and it shall be established.  I boldly confess that I know who I am in Him, I am ROYALTY, QUEEN, His precious daughter whom He finds delight in. I am above and not beneath.  I am fruitful and prosperous.  I am called.  I am chosen and set apart for His works according to His will, plans and purpose.  I command mountains to be moved and they obey me.  I am not afraid of what the enemy throws at me because I have triumphant victory in Christ Jesus.  I am standing and will keep standing through it all.  I know my wait is not in vain and I work according to His set appointed times and seasons.  My faith in God over weighs every fear because of His abundant overflowing love. I choose not to be defeated, I have triumphant victory in Christ Jesus.  I am an overcomer  and have overcome every trial and tribulation.  For every test I boldly confess that I have a testimony for His name to be glorified.  I confidently claim soundness of mind and His perfect love in Christ Jesus.  I am encouraged, bold and fierce as a lion to keep pressing on in pursuit of God.

As Christians who are anointed to pursue, possess and recover all that the Lord has in store for you, it is time to take your position of authority and command your morning, command things that be not as though they were.  To achieve this you need to understand the key steps to taking your position of authority.  Without understanding what you need to do, all your invested time and efforts becomes futile.

All power, dominion and authority belongs to Jesus.  Jesus Christ is the Head of all principalities and powers (Colossians 2:9-10)..  As Sons and Daughters who have inheritances in His Kingdom, we have a mandate to establish His will on earth as it is in Heaven.

KEY STEPS TO TAKING YOUR POSITION OF AUTHORITY

#1. Identify Christ Identity in you

Understanding who He is and who you are in Him enables you to take your position of authority.  Jesus Christ is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Father of light, alpha and omega and He seated on the throne of majesty, on the right hand of our Heavenly Father in the Heavenly places.

From understanding and discovering more about our Lord Jesus Christ, you know who you are in Christ Jesus.   To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27   

Christ  in you, the hope of glory and the Holy Spirit is a guarantee that He has a dwelling place in you.  His power is at work in you and through you to manifest His power and authority over every situation in your life, marriage, business and environment as it has already been established in heaven.

#2.  Walk in the image and likeness of Christ

We are created in the image and likeness of God, we have His DNA flowing through us (Genesis 1:27).  Therefore as Sons and Daughters of the Most High God, Kings and Queens, Lords and Royal Priesthoods, it is time to enforce your position of authority.

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9

In every situation, I always ask myself what would Jesus had done, how would He have reacted to the scenario.  Consequently I respond in the same manner as Jesus Christ.  It could be difficult sometimes to behave in His likeness because of our sinful nature.

When you decrease so that He increases and permit the Holy Spirit to take full control, you gradually begin to walk like Him, talk with boldness and confidence like Him and be a reflection of His overflowing love.   .

#3.  Put on your royal  garments

We are Royalties who have dominion over our designated territories,  I believe that’s where the word KINGDOM (King Dominion) originated from.

Why don’t you put on your robe of righteousness, crown of His glory, hold your scepter/staff of rulership  as you seat with Jesus Christ on the throne in Heavenly places and enforce His decrees as royalties according to His will, purpose and plans and turning your circumstances around (Psalm 45:6, Isaiah 61:10, Isaiah 62:3, Ephesians 1:20, Revelations 3:21).

 

#4.  Decree a thing

When you decree a thing it shall be established because of the power of life and death in your spoken words.
You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you;  so light will shine on your ways. Job 22:28.  Do not take the words that proceeds from you mouth for granted. Once spoken it can never be retrieved.
The words you confess are sealed and sent forth to establish or uproot, build or destroy as you desire according to His will on earth as it is in Heaven.  Believe with your heart and confess with your mouth by faith and it shall come to pass (Romans 10:10)
With these these key steps to possessing your position of authority you can move mountains, you can destroy the works of the enemy and smash down every stronghold that has hindered you from moving forward.  I can truly testify that your words shall be like a double edged sword that pierces the heart of men and an hammer that breaks rocks into pieces (Hebrews 4:12, Jeremiah 23:29)

One morning, I looked into the mirror and thought about the reflection of Christ love in me.  It is my utmost desire and passion to be a reflection of Christ  to those around me and  the world.  To see Christ transformed in me to the  fullness of His perfection.  Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear child. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God Ephesians 5:1-2 NLT.  God created us in His image for His purpose on this earth, that His will be fulfilled in our lives (Genesis 1:27).  

This is a reflection of Christ love,  from me to You Lord ……………………………………. 

When I look in the mirror
Your face is all I see in me
The reflection of Your love
The beauty of Your glory

I look in the mirror
I see You
You in me
How beautiful are You Lord
When You touch my face
The beauty of Your perfection
Your perfection in me

So amazed I am
By Your deep love for me
You love everything about me
The good and the bad

Who can compare to You
Who can match up to Your perfection
Who is greater than You
Who is more powerful than You

The devil sees You and  trembles at Your feet
The enemy hears your voice and they are crushed
All power belongs to You
All glory belongs to You

Now I know who I am in You
Because I have seen You
You in me
The reflection of Your love in me
The image of  Your character in me
Now I can step out in boldness
Because I have You in me
