Colossians 3:3 ““For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”
Jesus came to give you a new life: His life! When you accepted Him as your Lord and Savior, you gave up your old life with all its old ways. What did you give up? A life without God is a life of stress and fear, where you have to rely on your wisdom, on your own resources, sometimes resorting to lying and scheming to get your own way and to climb the ladder of success. A life where you become the victim of whatever comes your way, a life of trials where you don’t know what the outcome will be, a life where you have to watch your back. So now God is saying, I am giving you My life – a life where you have a heavenly Papa Who watches out for you, Who loves you and cares for you. You no longer have to live in fear because He’s got your back covered, He knows what’s ahead so you can relax and rest in His wisdom and guidance, even when you face challenges you know you will come out stronger and better. That life is hidden in Christ because it’s not obvious immediately. You have to be conscious about submitting your will to His, your mind to His thoughts, your emotions to His Lordship. As your relationship with Him gets developed, He reveals more of Himself to you. He opens your eyes to the realities of that new life and you discover more and more just how good He really is! His love becomes more real and you become grounded and established in His love.
“Abba, help me to always seek Your Kingdom and Your righteousness so I always live a life that pleases You. Let my life be one that manifests sonship. I trust You to watch over me and over the things I have no control over. I find my rest in You, through Jesus Christ, amen.”
