A Living Revelation

I can’t get away from the truth impressed on my heart that to NOT daily live out the revelation of who God is that He has gifted to us, is to deny Him and the work that He has done in our lives. 

We must deny ourselves to live Him out:

  • Deny ourselves of the fleshly desires
  • Deny ourselves a victim’s mentality
  • Deny ourselves “stability” and “Security” by the world’s standards
  • Deny ourselves pride
  • Deny ourselves the mentality that something is owed to us

To not do so is foolishness. It is like being served platters of fresh fruit and either ignoring it, or admiring from a distance the beauty of how they are arranged and what they look like – and then proceed to eat junk and trash like you always have. Sure, the fruit is nice to look at, but there is no benefit and no change if you don’t eat it but let it sit and rot. What use is it then?

What I’ve learned: You must partake of the revelation that God has given to you of Himself. It must become a part of you. But in order to do that, you have to make room for it first. You need to give up the junk to make room for the fruit. We have a responsibility to carry out what God has given to us of Himself. Too often we confess with our lips what God has done in our lives, but deny that very part of who He is in us by our deeds. 

 

– If He really redeemed you ~ live as the redeemed daughter that you are.

– If He really healed you ~ live in the health that He supplied.

– If He really restored you ~ live as whole.

– If He really revealed His faithfulness to you ~ live as faithful.

If you really believe in the revelation that God has given you, then live it. To not live it out each day, is to deny Him and the work that He has done and is doing in your life.

To be the hands and feet of Jesus is to live out His character that He has revealed to you. It is so humbling just to think that He reveals himself to us, and yet He is the great creator of all things, He is the great I AM, and He wants to reveal Himself to you. This is so humbling.

Reflect: What has God done in your life? Are you living that out today? How can you live out the revelation of who He is that has been gifted to you?
