You Are God's Dwelling Place

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s
temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?
— 1 Corinthians 3:16

This is amazing...

Just the thought of God's Holy Spirit dwelling permanently in the lives of believers blows me away at times. The same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead has been designated by God to attend to you personally, and give life to your mortal bodies.

Since the Holy Spirit is the one transforming our lives, we can hardly be contemplating more of ourselves than of Him. Though we will still experience all the limitations of sin—knowing that the Holy Spirit is within us, we can enjoy life on God's terms.

Gaining a clear understanding of this truth about the Spirit of Truth brings great peace and comfort to my heart.  Let the Holy Spirit reassure your heart today that whatever you are facing while living in your body that He is right there dwelling within to help you. And since He has chosen to live within you, live well.

Decree It: I am a spirit living in my body. My body is the dwelling place where the Holy Spirit has chosen to dwell, therefore I honor God and bring Him glory while He is in my midst. And when I miss it I have an inside Helper to teach me and keep me on the paths of righteousness.
