Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional January 29th – Lay Hold On Eternal Life

(Walk In And Hold The Consciousness Of Eternal Life)

TO THE BIBLE: 1 Timothy 6:12
“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”

The underlined portion of our opening scripture, as rendered in Greek, is “epilambanomai.” It means to take hold of something without letting go. Here, the Apostle Paul says, “Don’t just be aware that you have eternal life; seize eternal life; take possession of it.”

In other words, don’t let it be mere theoretical knowledge to you. Someone may be singing, “I’ve got the life of God in me…” but he’s not walking in the consciousness of that life nor acting like it. Every now and then, he gripes, “You know, I’ve had this migraine headache that has been with me for fifteen years.” No one who’s taken hold of eternal life talks like that.

Eternal life is the God-life; it’s incorruptible. It can’t be tainted, defiled, or corrupted by sickness, disease, failure, death or the devil. It’s the divine life.

You might be praying, “Oh God, please take away this sickness from me”; that may not change anything.

You might say, “But God says ‘I’ll take sickness away from among you’”; He already did that in Christ Jesus. In God’s eyes, you’re already perfect, even though you might be going through trials, pains, and difficulties.

To Him, you’ve been perfected in Christ Jesus. He sees you the way He sees Jesus. In His sight, there’s nothing wrong with you.

Therefore, align yourself with His thoughts and visions through the Word and declare, “I’m perfected in Christ Jesus; I refuse to accommodate any sickness, disease or pain in my body because I have the life of God in me! I’ve taken hold of eternal life.”

You’re an associate of the God-kind; the life and nature of God have been imparted into your spirit. Now that you’re born again, you have eternal life in you. You’re not going to have it after you’ve prayed and struggled to please God. It’s in your spirit now! Live in this consciousness and be who you are in Christ.

I’ve taken a hold of eternal life. Therefore, it doesn’t matter the trials, pains, and difficulties in the world, I’m unperturbed because I live in, and by, the Word of God. My life is the revelation of the graces and realities of the Word! I live triumphantly over sickness, disease, Satan, and the systems of this world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
