Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
1 Peter 1:23 (KJV)
We are born again through the incorruptible seed of the Word of God. The part of us that is born again is our spirit, and so in our born again spirit we already are of the exact same nature as Jesus who is the Word made flesh. Meditating on the Word, confessing the Word over our lives, and fellowshipping with the Lord in the spirit enables what is already true about us in Christ—in the Word—to be made manifest in the natural.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
Ephesians 1:3 (KJV)
In Christ we have already been blessed with all spiritual blessings. This means that in our born again spirit we have already been given everything we will ever need. The key to seeing what is true of us spiritually being made manifest in the natural is to take posession of this good news by faith. When we claim in faith that God in His great love and by His grace has already provided anything we need, we are making way for seeing more of what is true about us in Him showing up as blessings, wisdom and favor in our day to day life.
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
Romans 6:6 (KJV)
Every believer who receives the Lord Jesus into their hearts is spiritually united with Him. It is for this reason that the Word of God can say that our old man, our old self, is crucified with Him. Union with Christ is at the very heart of salvation. Today, realize that when Jesus died on the cross, your old self has died with Him. Old hurts, regrets and past mistakes have died; everything that was fleshly and contrary to the things of God has died. Though this may not yet be evident, nevertheless through being united with Jesus you have already been set free; He has already made you a brand new creation! Now in order to take what has been established about us in Christ and make it our day to day experience, we must be faithful in renewing our minds. The more that we meditate on and confess who we already are in Christ, the more are we making a way for the incredible fruits of salvation to be shown forth in our lives.
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
Colossians 3:1-2 (KJV)
We are risen with Christ. This is describing the spiritual reality of every born again believer. Through union with the Holy Spirit, our inner person, our spirit, has been born again. Spiritually speaking we have passed from death to life. Now in order for us to live out of who we are in Christ—spiritually alive, blessed, redeemed, equipped, empowered and anointed—we must make a shift in our thinking. The Bible tells us we must set our affection on the things above, not on the things of the earth. In other words, we must begin to contemplate heavenly things rather than earthly things. And so let us reflect on and meditate on the Word of God rather than the word of man. Meditating on the Word is what allows it to take root in our hearts. And once we have the Word in our hearts, we may rest assured that it will yield a rich harvest in our lives.
