Stay Hidden

HE was alive- but HE came to die. We were dead, but now we live. When HE rose from the dead, we were with HIM for the word tells us to consider ourselves dead IN CHRIST.

Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:11

We ARE seated in heavenly places WITH Christ Jesus.......... No longer dead but alive but not alive in ourselves but alive in Christ.

Eph 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,

Eph 2;5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),

Eph 2:6 and raised [us] up together, and made [us] sit together in the heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus,

HE intended us to stay hidden in HIM.....

For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. COL 3:3
but we keep peaking our noses out to see if it is something WE can handle.. HE keeps us safe when we stay in HIM.


Stay in Christ, that is where HE intended us to be. That is why HE came. HE knows how to live, we do not.......... THAT is why HE came.

It is a commitment thing, it is not spooky, but it is supernatural. HE is waiting for your mouth to speak the words..........
Today, Jesus, I WILL stay hidden in you. I commit my day to YOU and I will stay hidden so that YOU will live through me.....

That is when HE moves to the forefront of your life and HE keeps you covered.
HE stands ready to do just that in your life..... Trust HIM. It is really quite simple.
We want to make things hard in our life, HE wants to make them easy...... Open your mouth EACH day that your feet hit the floor and relinquish your rule...... HE will hear you...... HE will.


You died....... Stay Hidden :

I like this visual and analogy...we are to stay hidden so He can be seen and alive in us. What a wonderful prayer...Lord, keep me hidden so YOU can be seen and live fully in me.

Thanks for visiting me. Come often. I look forward to your visits and comments.
