You’re Alive Be Strong

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Listen with your spirit to the Word of God. “If Christ is in you…your spirit is alive because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he … will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you” (Romans 8:10-11).

Your spirit is alive in the Spirit of God, and your Father intends for you to be awake, nurtured, strong, and large in him. The Holy Spirit is present in you, igniting in you revelation of who you really are. You are meant to live life rejoicing in God with ears to hear from Him. Be blessed as the Spirit of the Lord in you activates your full spiritual DNA. Exchange slumber and passivity for the rising glory of being awakened and enlarged in Him. Be blessed to live from who you are, feeling completely alive. Receive who your Father says you are, not who others say you are. Be blessed to embrace life as you connect with His Spirit in a life-giving way. Be blessed with fresh manna of truth that wipes out deception and refutes the constant bombardment of the world, the flesh, and the devil.

Listen to the heart cry of Paul for his Ephesian disciples and friends. “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being” (Eph. 3:16). Be blessed to know and live from the strength of the Spirit in you. You are active and strong, not passive. Be blessed with healthy conversation between your spirit and your soul like David in Psalm 42:5. “Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.” Be blessed to strengthen your vertical connection with God’s Spirit.

There is pain when you use physical muscles in ways that are out of your comfort zone or have not been used in a long time. The key to many sports is muscle memory. Athletes spend hours practicing what they want their muscles to do in the game. Spiritual muscle memory is the same. In the spirit, there’s stretching as you learn new skills. So faithfully exercise your God-given identity and legitimacy. God is up to something significant and eternal in enlarging you and strengthening you. Be blessed with being active and strong, so that you will be complete spirit, soul, and body (1 Thes. 5:23).

Be blessed in the name of One who gives you life through His Spirit (Rom. 8:11).
