YOU DWELL IN HIM – Pastor Chris
Sunday, August 5, 2018
Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations (Psalm 90:1).
In spite of the troubles, crises, and overwhelming spread of evil around the world, there’s nothing for you to fear, because you dwell in Christ. Psalm 91:1 says, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” The Lord protects and takes care of His people. In Christ, we’re never, and can never be disadvantaged; we’re victors and not victims; the Lord Jesus assured us of peace and safety in a tempestuous world.
Read His very comforting words in John 16:33; He said, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” He overcame the world for you, and gave you the victory. You have dominion over Satan, circumstances, and the world. Irrespective of the crises and tribulations in the world, in Him we have peace, assurance, safety and security (John 16:33).
Your location in the spirit is Christ; that’s your dwelling place. Therefore, you’re under the shadow, that is, the protection of Almighty God. The Apostle Paul, by the Spirit, tells us, “…if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature…” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Notice the underlined words, “in Christ,” showing us that Christ is your dwelling place. Christ is a person—the Man Christ Jesus—and Christ is also a place in God.
Be confident. Be courageous. Refuse to fear. You dwell in Christ; therefore, you’re shielded from harm, evil and destruction. In Him you live, and move, and have your being. He has said, “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee” (Psalm 91:7). Hallelujah!
Christ in me is the glory of my life; I reign and rule in life. I dwell in Him, and carry a divine atmosphere of glory and victory. When I come in, darkness flees, because I’m the light in a dark world. Blessed be God!
