Ephesians 3:17 (NET) that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith…
Lisa and Samuel were members of the same family. They both believed in the Lord Jesus on the same day, but Lisa wasn’t growing as rapidly as Samuel. In a few weeks, Samuel was already talking about hearing from the Lord, and as events unfolded, it was clear that Samuel truly hears from the Lord.
When Lisa could not take it anymore she started asking questions as to why Samuel grew so fast in his knowledge of God and not her. One thing became immediately clear through her inquiry: Samuel was told by his discipler that Christ now dwells in him, and he believed it. Because of his faith, that became his experience. Lisa on the other hand was not told any such thing by her discipler. She was made to believe that Christ would dwell in her after she meets certain requirements.
From today’s Bible verse, we see that Christ dwells in our hearts by faith. In order to experience the reality of Christ dwelling in your heart, you need to first believe it [be convinced about it and have corresponding expectations]. Because you have accepted Christ as your Lord, you are entitled to His indwelling presence. But in order for this to happen, you have to believe it first.
Believe that because Christ is now your Lord and Master, he now dwells within you. This is not because of what you can do, it is fully sponsored by His grace.
Go into today remembering that Christ wants to dwell in you more than you want Him to. The missing link is usually faith. It is necessary for you to believe and be convinced that Chris dwells in you before you can experience the reality of His indwelling presence.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me believe and always remember that Christ dwells in me.
