POSSESSED BY JESUS

Walking with the Lord through the years we get into the dynamics of spiritual life. This includes, prayer, seeking God, studying the Bible, going to church, giving and lots more. All these spiritual activities position us to possess the Land and become what God has created for us. We rightly seek the Lord in all ways. However, sometimes we lose sight of a very important truth. God sought you first and still seeks you. As you love God remember He first loved you. As you give to God don’t forget he gives you more than you even know. In the same way as you go deep into Jesus your great portion, don’t forget you are actually His possession. Jesus has done more than you could ever do. He reaches out to you more than you could ever seek him.

As you grow into your place as a possession of God, you can get to a place where you are possessed by Him. The terminology may not be accurate because God always leaves you free will, but we should surrender to the Lord so that our wills are subject to His will. In that place we can say you are possessed by the Lord. Don’t just seek to possess things or even possess Christ the greatest gift. Get to the place where you are possessed by the Lord. In that place you are not alone nor do you act alone. You are literary under the influence of the Lord. Under the influence of the Lord you go to heights and levels far beyond your wildest imagination.

SCRIPTURE READING: Acts 2:1-12 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven. And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language. Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, “Look, are not all these who speak Galileans? And how [is it that] we hear, each in our own language in which we were born? Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.” So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “Whatever could this mean?”

DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear Jesus, teach me to fully understand that am possessed by You. May I fully acknowledge it, Amen.
