Every living thing has its habitat.
Their habitat is their environment for survival and thriving.
They are always their best in their environment.
Likewise according to Acts 17:28, our habitat is Jesus.
He is the environment in which we can survive spiritually, physically and mentally.
Our alignment with Jesus is the key to breakthrough in all areas of life.
When something is out of alignment, it is out of balance. And when something is out of balance the security, speed and success is not guaranteed.
The root of everything we can be is rooted in aligning ourselves with Jesus, ensuring that we are not separated from Him ~ John 15:5~7.
_ There are Lessons we need to learn today about the Purpose and Power of Realigning with Jesus in Luke 15:10-24.
#1: God values our Realignment with Him
The Angels celebrate when they see man realigning with the Lord. So realignment is a thing of Joy in heaven.
#2: Our relationship with the Father is the only thing we need
Even if God should give us the whole world, we can never be satisfied outside our relationship with Him.
#3: We can never manage our lives profitably outside our relationship with Jesus.
We can’t make right choices. We will wrongly use our lives, talents, skills and resources for things that are contrary to the nature of the Father ~ Vs 13.
Deuteronomy 8:18 says, “And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.”
#4: There’s lack and wants when we are out of alignment with the Father ~ Vs 14
Do you know it’s a sign that you need a realignment when you live in wants all the time?
I’m confident to say that you can’t align yourself with Jesus doing His will and then be in wants.
I’m not saying it cannot be challenging but you can’t be in want.
In Psalm 23:1 David said, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.”
Psalm 34:10 says, “The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger; but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.”
#5: There is a loss of heavenly citizenship and its benefits when we are out of alignment with Jesus ~ Vs 15
Satan will send us to his fields to engage in dirty things of this world. Satan will shut the door of help ~ Vs 16.
#6: Realignment with Jesus begins with self examination, personal decision, humility, repentance and action ~ Vs 17-20a
We have a duty to examine ourselves whether we are in alignment with Jesus.
#7: Genuine Act of realignment will always receive the Compassion of the Father ~ Vs 20
The Father is always waiting to respond with compassion whenever we seek a realignment with Jesus.
#8: Genuine act of realignment will attracts restoration of Glory
Today, God will change your identity of disgrace to Glory in Jesus name.
#9: Realignment with Jesus will attract a restoration of Dignity and Authority
#10: It will also attract restoration of sonship. ~ Vs 22-24
Let’s receive Grace to be in full alignment with Jesus all the days of our life. In any way you are out of alignment with Jesus, which has led to struggles and suffering in your life, career, business and ministry, God is restoring you now!
