The older I have become, the more I have come to realize that my ideas of God and the Word of God have come from the dwelling place of men's minds. Jesus said that His words are 'Spirit' and in my setting apart of my self in submission to Him, I acknowledge that within my self dwells no good thing, but 'in Him', the Spirit gives life. I have to move away from my own understanding of the things of God and move 'into' Him.
Daily, in the each and every moment, I must submit to Him, giving up the right to my self to dwell in His Spirit. It is only then that the words of Jesus Christ come alive and breathe life into me. His words are Spirit and can only be understood in the Spirit.
I have failed so many times, but now I know I don't have to.
Dwell in His Spirit today and see that the Kingdom of God is nearer than you think.
For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure. The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand. He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on Him. (John 3:34-36)
