Awakening and Building His Life Within
(an excerpt) “Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” (1Jn. 5:5). Confessing that Jesus is the Son of God in our hearts is real and Life-awakening. I acknowledge that He is my life. He is the One who lives. It is His Person that is the object of my attention. I am riveted to Him. I am not something in myself. To say this is not just doctrinal confession. It is a clear focus on Him. When our spirit is so focused that Jesus is the One—Jesus is the life, we lay our hand on Him—this awakens and builds His Life within us. The factor for life to flood us is our being occupied exclusively not with ourselves, but with Jesus, the Son of God. You start your morning with telling Him, “Lord, You are the Son of God. You are the One living today. You are my thought today. You are my feeling. You are my choice. You are my life today.” Jesus is the Son of God! Confess it regularly in your heart and with your mouth. : ) —m 11:07 a.m.
