Apostle Grace Lubega
Colossians 3:3(KJV); For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
The scriptures speak of the infallible truth that we died in the flesh and are alive in Christ.
However, not many Christians are awakened to this consciousness.
For example, how does a dead man believe?
True faith cannot come until one has the experience of this death.
What this means is that you cannot believe God as you should until you start to live in the consciousness of this death.
The greatest hindrance to some people’s faith is the fact that they are too aware of their life in the flesh.
This is why they easily observe lying vanities. It is the same reason they cannot take risks in faith.
They are too sensitive to what is around them; to the physical realities that are contrary to the Word of God.
You must believe God like a dead man!
To such a man, negative circumstances speak a dead language.
When a man is conscious of this death, he steps on water and keeps walking even when the waves toss around him.
For such a one, his physical senses do not define his faith, his spiritual senses do.
This is your story in Christ.
FURTHER STUDY: Hebrews 10:38, Jonah 2:8
You cannot believe God as you should until you start to live in the consciousness of your death in the flesh.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank you for your Word. I understand that my real life is hidden in you. I walk with the consciousness of one who was buried with Christ and raised with Him. This knowledge defines my faith. It removes boundaries and limitations from how and what I believe. I step out in boldness and take risks because of this consciousness. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
