When You Walk Into The Room
When You walk into the room, everything changes
Darkness starts to tremble at the light that You bring
And when You walk into the room, every heart starts burning…
When You walk into the room, sickness starts to vanish
Every hopeless situation ceases to exist
And when You walk into the room, the dead begin to rise
‘Cause there is resurrection life in all You do…***
Belting the above Sunday morning I heard a giggle in my head… I tuned in… “You are singing about yourself.”
What? No! I am singing about Jesus. The lyrics say Jesus.
I hear laughter… “Where do you think I am? I am in YOU! You and I are one, Dena. I am in you, you are in me (Colossians 2:6, 3:2-4, Galatians 2:20). What I do, you do. You are my representation on this earth. You are singing about yourself!” More laughter. Delight. Joy bubbled up in me, surrounded me, engulfed me.
I sat down.
He continued: “The church needs to grab this concept; own it, live it. It is key in this next stage; this next season. When my followers fully understand and live out the reality we are infused, entangled, unable to be undone…are one, the world will change.”
How do I gain access to this way of living? This type of existence?
“Faith and focus. Where do you place your faith; in what is it rooted? Me or something else? Where are you focusing? Abide. Abide. Abide. And you will be empowered, commissioned, and released by me to affect atmospheres, change cities, transform territories…” His voice faded, the worship around me came back into focus.
Reveling in his presence, I did a quick survey of my life and circumstances. I am not an unflagging atmosphere altering agent. I did not feel judgement nor condemnation, or even disappointment - just hope for what CAN be.
Open my eyes Lord so I can see, unplug my ears so I can hear, and heal my heart - kick out any fear, unbelief, anxious thoughts - so I can walk as you desire, act as you will, and move as you want.
We. Are. One. We. Are. Unified. Entangled. Infused. Unable to be Undone.
“Since you have accepted Christ Jesus as Lord, live in union with him.”
Colossians 2:6 GNBUK
“Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm. Your crucifixion with Christ has severed the tie to this life, and now your true life is hidden away in God in Christ. And as Christ himself is seen for who he really is, who you really are will also be revealed, for you are now one with him in his glory!”
Colossians 3:2-4 TPT
“My old identity has been co-crucified with Christ and no longer lives. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his life through me—we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, dispensing his life into mine!”
Galatians 2:20 TPT
