You’ve Been Detached – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 5th



(You Don’t Belong To The World)

TO THE BIBLE: John 15:19 NIV
“If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.”

“My head hurts! The weather is making me sick,” exclaimed Robin.
“Robin, remember you’re born again; don’t speak like the world does because as Jesus is, so are you today. He’s neither sick nor subject to the weather,” Marcus reminded him.

God expects you to live above this world because you’re not of this world. That’s why the Spirit, speaking through the Apostle Paul, warns in Colossians 2:20: “Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations?”

Refuse to allow your actions, reactions, thoughts, words, and responses to be influenced or conditioned by the elements and rudiments of this world.

Now that you’re born again, you live in two worlds: the physical world and the spiritual world. Be more conscious of the spiritual realm into which you’re born of God, and function in it.

Live the life of heaven on earth because you’re a citizen of heaven. “…We are citizens of heaven and are eagerly waiting for our Savior to come from there.…” (Philippians 3:20 CEV).

Your outlook on life and your contemplations should be guided by the Word. That way, no matter what happens, you’ll always win.

Recall the words of Jesus in John 16:33, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

You overcame the world in Him. Therefore, dominate this world with the principles of God’s kingdom and with your faith: “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith” (1 John 5:4). Hallelujah!

I’m born of God; therefore, I’ve overcome the world! I live in the victory and dominion of Christ over this world. I’m in rest, health, wealth, security and peace with prosperity. I influence my world with the principles of God’s glorious Kingdom. Blessed be God!
