“And we know and have believed the love which God hath in our case. God is love; and he that abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” I John 4:16
We have come to know the Love Way is best. We have come to believe in love. We believe it is better than force, better than argument, better than money, and better than going to court. It has been hard for us to believe in God’s love for us when difficulties came into our lives, but we know now that all of these abnormal things are not the product of love. They come from the Adversary seeking to dethrone love in our hearts.
For us to become God-Inside Minded is for us to become victors. As soon as we become God-inside conscious, we will begin to depend upon the God inside. We will know that “greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.” I John 4:4 and I John 4:16 “And we know and have believed the love which God hath in our case. God is love; and he that abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”
There will be a holy boldness in us, a Jesus-like fearlessness. No matter what happens to us, He is inside and He will take us over. We have His ability, His courage, and His strength. It takes us out of the failure realm and puts us over into the realm of success.
“For if, through the transgression of the one individual to seize the sovereignty, all the more shall those who receive God’s overflowing grace and the gift of righteousness reign as kings in Life through the one individual, Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:17 Weymouth
We have received the gift of Righteousness. We have received the abundance of grace. We reign as kings in the realm of life or love. God never intended that we should be servants of have a servile spirit. Love takes us out of the Servant-realm up into the Son-realm.
Love takes us away from the sense of inferiority and gives us the sense of our oneness with Christ. The old inferiority complex that comes from Sin-Consciousness has been destroyed. Love-Consciousness and Son-Consciousness have taken its place.
One cannot have a servile spirit and enjoy the reality of sonship. We are masters, we are conquerors, we are overcomers because we are one with Him. We have his ability, His wisdom, His strength, His love. Spiritually, we are free men. We abide in God and God abides in us. Waiting before the Lord for power and for some special blessing that you have heard about is unnecessary because you have in you, if you have received the Holy Spirit, the fountain of all experiences.
