Did you know that, during His time on earth, the Lord Jesus lived a life of perfect ONENESS with His Father? To Him it was all about the Glory—His relationship of UNITY with His Father. And now the Father has made that same relationship of Glory available to you—to be ONE with Him through His Son, Jesus.
AND THE GLORY WHICH THOU GAVEST ME I HAVE GIVEN THEM; THAT THEY MAY BE ONE, EVEN AS WE ARE ONE
Child, I want you to capture that just before Jesus left for Heaven, He prayed the following words for you. He could have prayed for anything, but He prayed for that which was most important to Him and for that which is most important to you: THE RELATIONSHIP WITH ME, THE FATHER—the Glory of Unity.
THAT THEY MAY BE ONE AS WE ARE ONE: I IN THEM AND YOU IN ME. MAY THEY BE BROUGHT TO COMPLETE UNITY TO LET THE WORLD KNOW THAT YOU SENT ME AND HAVE LOVED THEM EVEN AS YOU HAVE LOVED ME
You need to know that the father-of-lies will try anything to keep you from the Glory of Unity—a relationship of oneness with Me, the Father, of whom are all things, and with My Son, Jesus, through whom are all things. The enemy knows that if you come into oneness with Me, YOU WILL EXPERIENCE THAT I LOVE YOU AS MUCH AS I LOVED MY SON, JESUS, when He was here on earth. Don’t let the father-of-lies rob you of this Glory!
FOR US THERE IS ONE GOD, THE FATHER, OF WHOM ARE ALL THINGS, AND WE FOR HIM; AND ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST, THROUGH WHOM ARE ALL THINGS, AND THROUGH WHOM WE LIVE
(1 Corinthians 8:6).
What negative, destructive beliefs did the father-of-lies instill in your mind that are keeping you from the Glory of Unity—a relationship of oneness with God, the Father, through Jesus, the Son? Did he tell you that you have no favor with God…that God will not answer you…that God only wants to punish you?
Submit these negative, destructive beliefs to the Lord Jesus and ask Him to bring you into His Glory—ONENESS with Him and the Father.
PRAYER: Father, how encouraged I am that You abound in Love and that You want to give that Love to me. I hunger for an intimate relationship with You, and I hunger for Your Love. Call me into unity with You, so I may know that You are in this place, right now, waiting to receive me and show me how much You love me.
Maintain an Awareness
Therefore, do not despair of the evil done against you: the insincerity…the depravity…the immorality. They might have meant evil against you; BUT GOD will cancel the effects of any evil done against you, in the past, in the present, and in the future, if you submit to His discipline.
