FOR WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP
Fathom that if you surrender your will to the Will of the Perfect Father…the Most High…the I AM, He will make you His workmanship. He will establish your nature, stabilize your emotions, shape your desires, and ground your beliefs in His Son, Christ Jesus, the NEW MAN.
CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS
Capture that when you are created in Christ Jesus, you are grounded in God’s DNA—His Divine Nature from Above. He sustains you with His Truth. He enriches you with His Righteousness. He infuses you with His Life. Through Christ, the Perfect Father exerts His sovereign, determining influence on your Life, moment-by-moment, empowering you to overcome, equipping you for your daily tasks, enabling you to do what is right.
I AM THE VINE, YE ARE THE BRANCHES: HE THAT ABIDETH IN ME, AND I IN HIM, THE SAME BRINGETH FORTH MUCH FRUIT: FOR WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING
However, if you step outside of your life in Christ Jesus, even for a moment, you step into the Law of Sin and Death—into the will of the evil one. If you step outside of the NEW MAN, you step into the OLD MAN, the body of sin. There, the accusatory OLD MAN beliefs rule, the insecure OLD MAN nature reigns, and the painful OLD MAN emotions break your heart. There, you are stripped of God’s Life, removed from God’s Righteousness, and separated from God’s Truth. There, you wither and die.
IF A MAN ABIDE NOT IN ME, HE IS CAST FORTH AS A BRANCH, AND IS WITHERED; AND MEN GATHER THEM, AND CAST THEM INTO THE FIRE, AND THEY ARE BURNED
Do you long to become God’s workmanship? Then, submit your will to the Will of the Most High and allow Him to ground and establish you in the Life of His Son, Jesus Christ. Invite the NEW MAN to exchange your painful emotions for His, replace your insecure nature with His, and ground your accusatory beliefs in His Truth. Let Him become the Vine that runs through your spirit, soul, and body.
PRAYER: Lord God, I surrender my will to Your Will. Make me Your workmanship. Establish me in Christ Jesus, to be infused with Your Life, enriched with Your Righteousness, equipped with Your Truth. Help me to understand that I was never meant to live independently from You, but in unity with You.
Maintain an Awareness
Often times, we use the same defense mechanisms we saw our parents or other authority figures use, during our childhood lives. If they hid behind a smile to pretend that everything was OK, we learned to do the same.
