April 16: Your Remarkable Side

Job 32:8;

But [there is] a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.

Daniel 11:32

And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.


Your spirit nature or life in Christ is God’s investment in you to be outstanding and outshining. That you are born of God, and that you have the life of God in you is a blessing that must never be ignored. The remarkable side of you lies in your new nature in Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:17 tells us that if any man be in Christ he is a new creation; old things are passed away, and that all things have become new. All things are new because you are born again. Your life is glorious because you are born again. New birth therefore is the remarkable and unique dimension of you. That’s your rare and unparalleled advantage. It is a miracle that you are saved, and that has made you a miracle; for everyone who is born of the Spirit is like the wind. Beloved, you are a miracle, and that so just because you are born again; you are a partaker of the divine nature.

Your chief advantage is your spirit nature in Christ, a spirit life which is of God. When you allow the new man in you impact on your natural life, you will thrill the world. Your remarkable side is not your physical nature; it is that part on the inside of you that is of God that stands you out in life. When you take time to develop your spirit man, it impacts on your entire life. When Jesus was on the face of the earth, He invested in His Spirit by giving attention to the Word. This stood Him out in life. He worked miracles, did good and healed all that were oppressed of the devil. You too are born of God with the same capacity to live like the Lord Jesus did. You are born of God and have received the Spirit of God just as He did. The Father has sent you as He sent Him. Now learn to draw on the vast resources of God in your new nature as you feed that nature with the Word daily. Beloved, you can solve problems at your workplace by the wisdom of God at work in you, for Jesus Christ has been made wisdom unto you. You can come up with templates to develop cities by the wisdom of God. Everything that you need for life and godliness is domiciled in your new nature in Christ. Feed it. Let it loose. Act on the Word!

My Solid Front (Confession):

Thank You Father for Your wisdom is worked out in me even as I build my spirit nature by feeding on the Word and acting upon it. I declare that I am built up within and greatness is let loose in me in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
