THE SPIRIT IN YOU
What? know ye not that your body is the
temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you,
which ye have of God, and ye are not
your own? (1 Corinthians 6:19).
In the Old Testament, the children of Israel
transported the presence of God from place
to place every time they carried the Tabernacle of
Witness, which contained the Ark of the Covenant. In
1 Kings 8:9, the Bible tells us specifically that “There
was nothing in the ark save the two tables of stone,
which Moses put there at Horeb, when the LORD
made a covenant with the children of Israel, when
they came out of the land of Egypt.” The only thing
in the ark was God’s commandments.
Today, your heart is the ark of God; that’s where
the Word is. Remember what the Lord said in Jeremiah
31:33: “But this shall be the covenant that I will make
with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the
Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write
it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall
be my people.” This was fulfilled in us when we were
We were born again by the Word of God, and
have become one with the Word; we’re living epistles,
“written, not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living
God—not in tables of stone—but in fleshy tables of the
heart” (2 Corinthians 3:3). Blessed be God!
You’re now the living ark of testimony and the
tabernacle of His presence: “…for ye are the temple
of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in
them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and
they shall be my people” (2 Corinthians 6:16). He
dwells in you now. His hands are in your hands, and
His legs are in your legs. He walks in you and talks
through you. Where you go, God goes. You’re in Him
and He’s in you!
Not only are you now in the presence of God,
you carry the presence of God. Every time you show
up, you come with the presence of God: Christ in you,
the hope of glory!
Dear Father, I thank you for your presence, glory,
beauty, aura and perfections in my life. The Holy
Spirit, who is your glory, lives in, and operates from
the quarters of my heart. Therefore, sickness, disease,
and darkness have no place in me, in Jesus’ Name.
