lifewords "Secret Place" series, 14 of 30, fullness

As you passionately and intentionally pursue spending time with the Lord in the "secret place" of prayer and in His Word, Jesus will teach you how to pray and you will begin to understand more clearly why you can pray with great faith and confidence and joy in believing. In that place of meeting with Him, we will discover that He is our All in All! Because He lives in us and we live in Him, He is our sufficiency in all things and He is always more than enough.
In this hour it is crucial we understand who He has made us to be in Him and that He has given us all things because He lives in us. Did you ever truly think about this verse?

"For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace" John 1:16

Oh if we could just understand the fullness of Christ that is already ours as believers! We are not trying to obtain this, we already possess it. I see so many believers striving to obtain what is already freely theirs in Christ. When you invited Jesus Christ to be your Savior and Lord,He not only forgave you but He made you a new creation in Christ. Then, He actually came to live in you. He lives in You. Thank You Lord! Let us thank Him every moment for this miracle! This is the mystery that once was hidden but now revealed.....Christ in Us the Hope of Glory. If you understand He lives in You, then you will surely understand He is your All in All and you are lacking nothing! It will change how you live life. You will discover this in the "secret place" of His presence. Love lives in you. Victory lives in you. Truth lives in You. The living God has chosen to abide in YOU and invites you to abide in Him. As an act of our will, daily, we yield to Him, we submit all to Him, we allow the daily infilling of His presence


One of the most important verses we must understand and walk in is in Galatians 2:20. It is the most accurate picture of being filled with His fullness."I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now life in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me."


When we receive Christ and He comes to live in us, we don't receive part of Him. He lives in us and becomes our life. He lives in us in His fullness. He has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. He has made us a new creation and now lives in us. We are lacking nothing! Now, to the degree we yield to Him and to His Word and renew our minds to the Truth of His living Word, and obey His Word is the degree this fullness will be manifested in our life. It is in the secret place of prayer and the Word that we understand that He is our All in All and because of what is already ours in Him, we can begin to pray with much faith! Our lives become a conduit of His love, life, truth and victory to this world. Of His fullness we have received, grace upon grace. Lord, help us to live in the reality of this Truth!
