Daily Bread 10/26/2022


    Daily Bread – October 26, 2021 (The Fourth Day – Genesis 1:14-19) Colossians 2:19 – And not holding the Head, from Whom all the body being supplied and being knit together through the joints and bands increases with the increase of God. Giving Jesus His Proper Place In Our Lives Jesus Christ is the Head of all of those who have been redeemed. Every dimension of our life should be under His instruction and control. Everything we do should be done to bring Him glory and honor in the same way the natural body functions in obedience and support of its head. As we give Jesus His proper place in our lives and the credit for every dimension of our salvation, then we continue to increase and mature into every dimension of the things He has purposed for our lives (Ephesians 4:16). There is only one way we can step into all the blessings the Lord has for us, and that is to participate with the Holy Spirit – Who desires to bring an increase of God’s presence and glory into our lives. Through the increase of God, we will see a direct effect on every other dimension of our lives – for we will prosper and be in health in direct proportion to the prosperity of our souls (3 John 2). The blessings of the Kingdom of God come to us not because we seek the blessings, but because we seek the Kingdom (Matthew 6:33). Also, all of the manifestations of the Spirit and power come to us not because we seek the manifestations, but because we seek Jesus (1 Corinthians 12:7; John 16:14). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
