But ye are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, Heb 12:22
Many of God’s children are living life unaware of where God has brought them in Christ Jesus. Some consent to carnal standards, as they try to familiarize themselves with those around them. By doing so, many have entangled themselves in fears that have gripped their heart.
However, as a child of God, God has set you apart in a place of safety. There is a place, which God has called His people to live life with Him. A place where all who believe in Jesus Christ as their saviour have come to the Living God, away from all the dangers and fears of this life.
It is the place, the psalmist spoke about when he said, he that dwells in the secret place of the most high, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty, Psalm 91:1. It is a place where those that dwell there, imitate the nature of the Almighty. They live by the standards of the almighty. The word of God is their standard. Poverty is not in their vocabulary, for God supplies for all their needs according to His riches in glory.
They abide in divine health, for by the stripes of Jesus they were healed. This is the place of triumph. As a born again Christian, this ought to be your place of dwelling. When you were born again, you were translated into this place. Everything about you changed and became new.
You became a citizen of this place, operating under a different set of rules. You may be living and buying things from the same place as others do, but you are operating under a different set of rules.
Consider an American or any other foreigner on a foreign land. He may go to the same shops with the citizens of that place, but he is governed by the rules of another country. If anything happens to him while in the foreign land, his country of origin will become responsible for him.
So it is with you. The place where God has brought you to, He Himself is responsible for your up keeping. You need not to fear what you see around you. God has promised in His word that a thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Psalms 91:7.
To live in this place and benefit from what it offers, you must renew your mind to conform to the standard of this place, which is the word of God. Believe in the word of God that what it says about you is true. You are in the safety of the heavenly hosts, as scripture say no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper. Therefore, live life in the liberty Christ has given you
I believe am a child of God and I have come to the city of the living God. I believe more are they that are with me than those against me, for God is my help. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper. I am in the safety of the living God, in Jesus name. Amen.
