The Victorious Life: Applying Christ In You (Part 3 of 3)
Again, remember we grow in maturity to this level. True growth comes only from intimacy with Him. God only causes the growth.
The more a believer spends intimacy with Him, being still in the inner man, the more God shows intimate love. Then God will trust the believer more to show His love to the world.
God will never share any space with flesh. Unfortunately, many have learned this the hard way by burnout.
I assure you if you continue this approach God will elevate you very much and very quickly. You know enough now that you can never trust yourself. Unfortunately, many believers have never reached this level.
I would also recommend you spend as much time alone with the Lord as possible. Let the Lord show you what doors in your life He wants to close.
What I mean is you probably have many Christian friends and some will be very jealous of your spiritual growth. They will look down on you because you will receive insight that so many of them have been longing for many years. They will look at you as an immature Christian who thinks you know so much.
Therefore, they will think you should not have the blessings God will give you. They are wrong. It does not matter how long one is a believer; it matters how real Christ is.
Jesus wants to become so real to you. So guard His love very well. Use common sense wisdom as the Lord’s leading regarding sharing and fellowship.
I lived alone with this treasure for three years. I did not meet one believer who truly understood these riches of Christ in you. Now the fruit is paying off. I have friends whom truly walk this way.
Remember it is the RESURRECTED CHRIST living in you NOW.
