HIS NATURE IN US
Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy (Ephesians 4:24 NLT).
In Ephesians 5:1, we’re admonished to be “imitators of God” as His beloved children. His life and nature in us makes this possible. We can walk in absolute mastery and dominion in the earth as Jesus did, for as He is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).
Being born again, you’re born after the Second Adam, Jesus Christ; you were created after Him in righteousness and true holiness. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature….” This new creature has the God-nature. This is the reason you can please God and live the Christ-life.
No matter how much you train a dog to act like a human, it can never be human, because it doesn’t have the human life. To be human, you have to be born that way. We’re Godlike, and can emulate our heavenly Father, because we were born with His life and nature in us. It’s the reason we can do the same things Jesus did.
He said in John 14:12, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do….” You can heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers and cast out devils as Jesus did. He gave you the authority in His Name.
Moreover, we can emulate Him in our love-walk. Ephesians 5:2 says, “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.” His nature in you makes it possible to express love to those in your world, whether or not they deserve it. Hallelujah!
My divine nature causes me to live, love and talk like my heavenly Father; the beauty and compassion of Jesus is seen in and expressed through me, for as He is, so am I in this world.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Ephesians 5:1 NIV Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children
1 John 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

#KeepSayingIt – Thursday, 23rd February 2023
I lift my hands in worship and offer to You my Lord and King sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving from my spirit. I adore You, Lord, for You alone are God, the everlasting King of glory, the only wise and true God, gracious and kind, holy and righteous, ever loving and forgiving. Thank You for blessing me in Christ Jesus. I know who I am.
Greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world. I’m walking in divine health, victory, dominion and righteousness. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper and no illegal transactions can thrive in my body because I’m born of God, and my life is hid with Christ in God. I refuse to be sick! God wants me well, so I declare that I will always be well. I choose health, not sickness. I choose strength, not weakness and I choose life, not death. I am free and I have the life of God in me. I am strong in faith and I give all glory to God.
I’m perfected in Christ Jesus; I refuse to accommodate any sickness, disease or pain in my body because I have the life of God in me! I’ve taken hold of eternal life. It doesn’t matter the trials, pain and difficulties in the world, I am unperturbed because I live in, and by, the Word of God. I declare that I am healthy, well, prosperous and victorious.
My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. My legs are His legs – He moves through me; they will never be lame. My hands are His hands – He works through me; my hands will never be paralyzed. My eyes are His eyes – He sees through me; these eyes will never be blind. My mind is daily renewed by the Word of God – I am mentally sound; I give no room to depression or negative thoughts in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
#AFFIRMATIONTRAIN 23RD FEBRUARY.
I affirm that I am an ambassador of Christ, spreading God’s love in my world. His love is perfected in me; it’s heard in my words and seen in my actions because I dwell in God, and God is in me. I am vitalised by the Holy Ghost! No sickness, disease, or infirmity can thrive or survive in my body. The divine life of God is at work in me, in every fibre of my being, in every cell of my blood, and in every bone of my body. I am alive and well, healthy and strong forever, by the Holy Ghost. Hallelujah!
The Spirit of God has separated me from the destruction that ruins men’s lives and the judgment that works in the lives of men, having been identified with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. I am planted in the house of the Lord, my life is like a tree planted by the waters, ever in blossom. I flourish like the palm tree, with grace and glory! My life is programmed by the Word and I am living a life that is full of possibilities. Christ is alive in me; therefore, I see life differently. I see all trials and challenges that come my way as bread. Hallelujah!
No force can defeat me or throw me off balance because greater is He that lives in me than he that is in the world. I am more than a conqueror, and I live each day with confidence, knowing that all of heaven and the power of divinity is working for me, and for my good. I am a burning and a shining light; fervent in spirit, serving the Lord. I am full of passion for extraordinary impact with the Gospel of Christ. I am lifted and transported by the Holy Ghost into the glorious and higher realms of life, where I only see and relate with the realities of the Kingdom. Blessed be God. Hallelujah!
