If we do not allow God to move us from glory to glory, we will get caught up in living in an old season. As the Holy Spirit moves us, the methodology of an old season will not propel us into the future. We need something new and fresh. We need a new glory. - Chuck Pierce

Rest in His love. (Mark 4:37,38) - Andrew Wommack

2. Inheritance in Christ
Read Book of Colossians
The Colossian believers were being led astray by false teachers who were challenging the divinity and supremacy of Jesus Christ. Paul corrected this error by declaring that by Jesus all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible. All things were created through Him and for Him. And that Jesus Christ is before all things, and in Him all things consist. He points out His pre-existence, His head-ship of the church, His divine fullness, his reconciling work, and the mystery of his indwelling in the believer.
We are to be filled with knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
Paul warns against false doctrine and instructs steadfast faith in Christ. Also that the members of the church might be united together in love, having a fuller understanding of the spiritual mysteries of the Father and of Christ.
Paul encourages the church to heavenly aspirations and affections. To lay aside the evil passions and vices, and to put on the Christian graces and virtues. To see an infilling of the Word of Christ so as to be mutually heplful in instruction and praise. Do all things in the name of Christ.
Paul's request for prayer and advice concerning social conduct.
Affirmations: (Repeat and Meditate on These as You Go Throughout the Day)
Colossians 1:27 - Christ in me is the hope of glory.
Colossians 1:29 - Christ in me gives me the power to labor for the spiritual lives of others.
Colossians 2:6 - I have received and walk in Christ Jesus.
Colossians 2:9 - In Christ Jesus dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Since I am in Christ Jesus that fullness of the Godhead dwells in me.
Colossians 2:10 - I am complete in Christ Jesus which is the head of all principality and power.
Colossians 3:3 - My former life is dead and my reborn life today is hid with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:11 - Since Christ is in every believer then Christ is in me. Christ is all and in all.
Acts 3:6,7 -- But Peter said, silver and gold I do not have; but what I do have, that I give to you: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk! Then he took hold of the man's right hand with a firm grip and raised him up. And at once his feet and ankle bones became strong and steady.
Part of the problem is this: we are accustomed only to doing things for God that are not impossible. If God doesn't show up and help us, we can still succeed. There must be an aspect of the Christian life that is impossible without divine intervention that keeps us on the edge and puts us in contact with our true calling.
John 14:13,14 --
