Good morning people who enter into the fullness of your spiritual reality.
The Lord has just reminded me of what He spoke to me on September 7th this year. In light of yesterday’s devotion, I want to share it with you.
God said, “Don’t reduce realities down to symbolism.”
“It’s no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.” This is a reality; not a natural reality but a spiritual reality. It is not symbolism!
“Unless you are born again, you cannot see the kingdom of heaven.” This is a reality; not a natural reality but a spiritual reality. It is not symbolism!
“If you want to be my disciple, deny yourself, take up your cross and follow me.” This is a reality; not a natural reality but a spiritual reality. It is not symbolism!
People often say, “You just need to face reality.” What they mean is, “You just need to be ruled by your natural reality.”
What we actually need is to face a different reality; a spiritual reality!
Many seek or desire an alternative reality. By this they mean a different natural reality to their current natural reality. It is a different reality, but it is on the same dimension.
Biblically speaking, our alternative reality is on a different dimension; a deeper dimension; a spiritual dimension!
1 Corinthians 2:13-14 NIV This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
Dear friends, we are not of this world any more than Jesus is of this world. This is a spiritual reality.
