For in him we live and move and have our being—We are his offspring.”  [Acts 17 28]

Living, moving and being; three realities of being in relationship and abiding in Christ.  Are you aware of these realities?  What does it look like to LIVE in Him?

It means you don’t go any place without His presence.  You can’t get lost and you don’t make a wrong turn without God being in your face!  Like Balaam and his mule God will put an angel in front of you to keep you on the right track.  If you don’t follow Him God will use whatever is necessary to stop you!   Your eyes will be opened.  “…and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with his sword drawn.  So he bowed low and fell face-down”   [Numbers 22:31]

  • You do your best to not make a move without knowing God’s in it. [Psalm 139:2-3]
  • You discipline your thoughts to line up with the Word of God and turn them into action by His Holy Spirit. [Psalm 139:2b]
  • You learn to hold your tongue knowing it governs life and He is aware of every word you speak.   [Psalm 139:4]
  • You check your boundaries and evaluate your schedule because you  know His hand is on you to restrict unnecessary activity [Psalm 139:5]
  • You cannot comprehend such love and care, but trust Him as He removes every obstacle that shadows His love,  even when it hurts  [Psalm 139:23-24]

To LIVE in Christ is to Rest in Eternal Security and Trust.
