Starting Each Day

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Corinthians chapter 10:

3 For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons.

4 For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds,

5 [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)

We are to use the power of GOD to pull down strongholds, not by arguing, theorizing, or reasoning.  Men use the faculties they have in trying to deal with major issues in their lives, often in complete failure.

As we fully embrace and submit to The Word, we begin to tap into that power which is resident in the Living Word.  It is my belief our day should begin with the renewing of our mind by The Word.  This establishes our mind for the day as we are exposed to the world’s confusion (aka Babylon).

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Colossians chapter 3:

1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

It we are to have the mind of Christ, we should seek those things which are above and renew our mind daily.  We are not to focus on Moses, David, or other patriarchs but solely on Jesus Christ for it was solely His work that redeemed us.  His wounds took away our transgressions, His bruises sufficiently addressed our iniquities, and His stripes made full provision for our healing resulting in us being made whole.  No other could have satisfied these requirements so we should keep Our Lord Jesus Christ at the forefront of our adoration and attention!

We must not allow ourselves to be compromised and lose our intensity of pressing in to a higher level of revelation.  We must overcome all obstacles that are placed before us meant to take away our focus and intensity.  Evil reports by the enemy will try to redirect our thinking.  Past failures will be brought by the accuser.  He will use every device in an attempt to dissuade us from pursuing the fullness of our calling.

The Beloved Disciple wrote in the Revelation of Jesus Christ chapter 2:

17 …To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.

The white stone is the hidden name of Christ, The Word of God.  They kept the Word and, by it they were kept. 

In Psalm 119:11 “Thy Word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee.”  It is a Living Word, a Living Power, that transforms you into His image and reveals to us our true heritage in Christ!  It is simply DIVINE REVELATION!  That is the inner name within ourselves.   Our Lord Jesus has an outer name, and so will His overcoming ones have an outer name, and it will be in harmony with His inner one just as His is.

Let us strengthen our inner man daily by “hiding” the Word in our hearts.  I start each day by immersing myself in FATHER’S Word.  The result is HIS peace prevails in my heart.  The chaos of the world no longer affects me as it once did.  I trust it will do the same for you no matter what is happening in your life.
