Disciplined Spirituality

SylviaGod is not far and distant, someone up there who occasionally comes down.

The blessed reality is that Father, Son, and Holy Spirit live within us in the present tense (John 14:17). He is available to us in us in all his perfections of all his Person.

The focus of our spirit is to align with the Trinity and fellowship in the Father, Son, and Spirit, where all the love, energy, and light dwell among them. Enrich your relationship with each person of the Trinity and savor the richness of the Three in relationship with one another and with you. See in all your days their weaving together like a tapestry. 

Take in these truths. They are for intimacy, not just information. Selah. Pause. Let Him plant this deep within you in awe and reverence and wonder. Let your spirit receive this from God and then respond from a full and overflowing heart. Don't move on to the next triplet until each one is deep within you.

God is my everything.
I awake in the Father who made me and calls me covenant son/daughter.  2 Cor 6:18
I arise in the Son who redeemed my life from the empty way of life of my forefathers.  1 Peter 1:18-19
I greet the morning in the Spirit who fills me with life and promise and joy.  Rom 8:11, Acts 2:33, Luke 10:21, 1 Thes 1:6
I choose to live in the fullness of Your presence.

God sets me in fellowship...

In the Father with whom I have fellowship when I walk in the light.  1 John 1:3,6
In the Son with whom God called me into fellowship.  1 Cor 1:9
In the Spirit in whom I abide in fellowship.  2 Cor 13:14

I am humbled and honored that your delight to have fellowship with me.

My government is on the shoulders of the Son.  Isa 9:6
The Spirit dwells in my heart as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. 2 Cor 1:22
I will rest in Your keeping.

God loves me in a three-fold cord of love.
The Father is love and loves me with an everlasting love.  1 John 4:16, Jer 31:3
The Son loves me, has freed me from my sins by his blood, and has set me in a kingdom and made me a priest to serve his God and Father.  Rev 1:5
The Spirit loves me and pours out the love of the Father in my heart.  Rom 5:5
My heart is full of love for You. 

____________________________________

He is my three-fold peace.
The Father gives me peace and not anxiety.  1 Cor 14:33, Phil 4:7, 2 Thes 3:16
Jesus himself is my peace, the power of an untroubled heart.  John 14:27, Eph 2:14
The Spirit is righteousness, peace, and joy.  Rom 14:17
Thank you for security under Your wings.

Begin to live each day in all of who God is. Let the fullness of God take root in your spirit, and it will produce fruit in your heart, and mind, and soul, and body.  I pray that his breath would infuse your Trinity prayers and make them come alive. 

Triune God, I want to seek you and find you in all things,

and be with you, listen to you,

and get in sync with your heartbeat.

Dear Father, Jesus in me, Holy Spirit in me,

let me live with your reality filling my spirit.
