Day 29 – Oneness or UnityFebruary 26, 2011
Dear Brother or Sister in Christ, Our focus of the day is “O” oneness or unity. Unity is the conduit in which the anointing flows from heaven to earth. The anointing releases the power of heaven and its provision into our lives. The anointing is the manifested presence of God in our lives. Being unified is a decision we make of the heart. In the book of Ephesians we are given keys on maintaining unity, so we can live in an interrupted flow of the anointing.
2 Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. 3 Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.
Ephesians 4:2-3 (NLT)
- Be humble
- Be gentle
- Be forgiving
- Be loving
Paul knew that living in this manner would be a decision an act of our will, so he goes on to say “Make every effort” We are to make every effort to keep ourselves united in spirit. Before we can be unified with one another, be must be unified in our own heart with God and His ways. Make every effort to stay in a place of alignment; spirit, soul, and body. Then we are called to bind ourselves together with peace. Why? You and I were intended to live in the presence of God. Unity is key to the anointing, and the enemy knows this. Paul understood this so much that he exhorted us again in 1 Corinthians.
10 I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose. 1
Corinthians 1:10 (NLT)
- Live in Harmony
- No division/strife
- Be of one mind, united in thought and purpose
Experiencing unity or oneness is key to you and I living in the divine flow of God’s presence. Let me encourage you in this season, to make every effort to lay hold of and maintain unity in your life. Do not allow the enemy or the flesh to rob you of the blessing of living in the presence of God.
Are you being robbed of the presence of God in your life? Has strife and discord broken your harmony with heaven? If so, it is time to recognize the scheme of the enemy to steal from you what the Lord paid such a great price for you to have. Make every effort to throw off and lay aside any sin or weigh that would hinder the presence of God in your life.
Heavenly Father, strengthen us as we make every effort to walk in humility and gentleness. We choose this day to live a life of forgiveness, as we live in the love you have given to us freely. Lord grant us your grace to walk in harmony one with another. Help us to be a people who walk united in thought and in purpose. Fill our life with your abiding presence. In Jesus Name Amen
