But the person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him.
1 Corinthians 6:17, The Amplified Bible
I once heard about a great man of God who looked in the mirror every day when he put on his suit and said, “Suit, everywhere you go today, God goes in you.” And you know, he’s right. If you have united yourself to God by receiving Jesus as Lord, everywhere you go today…God goes too!
As believers, we need to start becoming more conscious of that. We need to train ourselves to be constantly aware of God inside of us, talking to us, teaching us, counseling us, empowering us and enduing us with Himself.
We need to continually remind ourselves that we are one spirit with Him. That means that every time we face a problem, every time we face an evil spirit that tries to influence and hinder our lives, God is facing it too. When we meet those things, God meets them. And He’s already overcome them!
Let me encourage you when you get dressed today to look in the mirror and say, “I am united to the Lord and I have become one spirit with Him. Body, everywhere you go today…God goes. God is in you. The power of God is in you. The wisdom of God is in you. The victory of God is in you.”
Say that to yourself every day—many times a day. Keep doing it until you begin to develop the habit of thinking that way. Cultivate a constant awareness of the reality of God living in you!
1 Corinthians 6:17-20
