Many of us have felt like failures at one time or another in our lives. But did you know if Christ Jesus lives on the inside of you; you are not to be a failure at all! We must realize when we go into partnership with Christ we can learn His way of doing business and we cannot be a failure – unless we do not rely on Him. Failures are not God-made.
1 Corinthians 3:9 tells us “For we are God’s fellow workers: ye are God’s husbandry, God’s building.” Notice we are His fellow workers! Workers in what? The answer is workers here on the earth. Jesus came to this earth, died, was buried, and rose again and is seated at the right Hand of God; we however are here to do the work Jesus left us to do in Mark 16:15-18. Think of it like this – God has already done on this earth all He is going to do through Jesus, now He gave us His Holy Spirit to be here living on the inside of us to fulfill what needs to be done. God is not going to force us to do the work, we must be willing and step out and do it, and then the Holy Spirit will work through us. We are not puppets the Holy Spirit is going to manipulate and cause us to walk here, and work here, and speak here. No! We are to walk and work and speak and when we do – the Holy Spirit will work through us to accomplish God’s work!
We are His fellow works, created to labor with Him. He is our partner and thus we cannot fail – for His wisdom is our wisdom. His ability is now our ability. Our job is to study His Word, learn what He wants us to do; through time with Him, and then get up and act on it. Then He will give us the ability to use that knowledge to make our life a success and help those around us to do the same. With God as our fellow worker there is no limit to where we can go or what we can do. He has secrets He wants to tell us. (Jeremiah 33:3)
1 Corinthians 2:16 assures us as new creations we have the mind of Christ and the ability of Christ! God has imparted to you His nature and His ability and that will produce in you and through you the same kinds of works Jesus did here on this earth! We must get this – the SAME works Jesus did! Are we doing the same works? Why not – when we have it in us already!
He is interested in our lives and our progress. Our responsibility is to cultivate a close relationship with Him so He can tell us the things we need to know. Deuteronomy 8:18 “But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”
We have the very Spirit of God living on the inside of us to lead us and guide us. 1 Corinthians 2:10-12 (read this entire passage however I am giving some keys here…) “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God……Now we have received…..the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God..” This passage clearly tells us the Holy Spirit knows the deep things of God and we have the same Holy Spirit living on the inside of us and therefore the Holy Spirit wants to give us the deep things of God; the personal, secret, private things of God! He wants you to know the answer to your problem. He wants to give you the wisdom to get out of the financial state you are in. He wants to show you how to receive and walk in divine healing. He wants to show you how to restore that broken relationship.
There is nothing you are walking through in your life right now that God does not want to give you the answer to! You however must walk in the nature and ability you have already been given! You have it! So walk in it by spending time with your Heavenly Father and allow Him to grow that ability in you and stand on the promises given to you I have listed here. Learn them, make them such a part of your life that nothing and no one can move you off of them!
He wants to take over your five senses so He can unveil to you the treasure He has hidden away. However in order for Him to take over your senses you have to know the Word of God and allow your faith to be larger than the natural 5 sense realm. Colossians 1:9, 10 tells us “That ye may be filled with the exact knowledge of His will, in all spiritual wisdom and understanding in order that ye may walk worthy of the Lord according to your understanding.” He has filled you with His EXACT knowledge of His Will! We must pursue it by pursuing Him and as we pursue Him we will see we will walk by faith and not by sight! We cannot fail!
