Ephesians 3:17 (KJV) That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love…
After Aarav accepted the Lord Jesus, because he lived in a neighborhood where idol worship was predominant, he felt greatly suffocated spiritually. One of the Hindu priests in his family knew through divination that Aarav was now born again. He appeared to Aarav in his dream and threatened that he would have no peace until he comes back to Hinduism to continue the family legacy of the priesthood. Aarav thought it was merely a dream until he met this priest physically in a family function and he did not answer Aarav’s greeting but responded to him by saying “as I said the other day, you would not have peace if you don’t renounce that perverted faith and come back to our family tradition”.
Aarav became really afraid, and from that day, he started having nightmares of snakes and crocodiles trying to eat him. He was so troubled that he started losing weight terribly. It was his weight loss that his pastor saw and observed that something was wrong. When Aarav told his pastor what was going on, his pastor smiled and told him that he was suffering because he did not realize that Christ was now dwelling in him.
As soon as Aarav understood and accepted the truth that Christ was dwelling in him, those evil dreams ceased. He was no longer afraid and even his tone of prayer changed from that of weakness to that of authority.
We can see from today’s scripture that christ dwells in us by faith. If you do not know and believe that Christ dwells in you and act according to that knowledge, even though you are a believer, your life would be as if Christ does not dwell in you. The reality of Christ’s presence in the heart of a believer is activated by the faith of that believer.
Go into today remembering that Christ dwells in you if you believe in Him. Let this truth guide your life and choices. This is how to live a victorious life.
Prayer Confession: Christ dwells in me. I am an overcomer. I possess my possessions and walk in the blessing In Jesus’ name, Amen.
