Prophetic word for today: I decree that henceforth, YAHWEH will answer His name in your life, in the name of Jesus.
What should you do to have Christ in your vessel? Today, we will turn our attention to finding answers to this question. First, you should give your life to Christ and make Him your Lord and Saviour. The moment you do this genuinely, the Spirit of Christ will come to indwell you and you will begin to enjoy all the privileges of new birth, including having Christ as the Captain of your life’s vessel. Secondly, you should live a life of absolute holiness and purity. The Lord and His Spirit are completely holy.
They will not dwell in an unholy vessel. Therefore, for Christ to be the Captain of your vessel and journey with you, you need to hate sin with perfect hatred. Your thoughts, words and actions should conform to God’s word and be pure.
Thirdly, you should live in obedience and be a doer of the word of God. Those who live in constant disobedience and willful sin cannot have the presence of our holy God. If You want Jesus as the Captain of your vessel this year and beyond, you should study the word of God daily and live by it. God blesses the doer of His word. Living a life of obedience will enable you to enjoy His presence all the time.
In addition, you should ensure that you grow in your relationship with God daily. The assurance of having the Lord as the Captain of your vessel is tied to your intimacy with Him- Are you intimate with the Lord? What are you doing to improve your relationship with Him this year?
Furthermore, you can have Christ in your vessel by being a prayer addict. Prayer is a two-way communication between you and God. It is the greatest power and privilege that heaven has conferred on the believer to bring God’s presence to bear in human affairs and effect desired change to the glory of God. The Bible enjoins that we pray without ceasing and assures that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous person releases tremendous power, grace and miracles, etc.
Finally, you should serve God with your gifts and talents. When you consistently serve God with your gifts and talents, He will be the Captain of your life and take you to your desired haven, in Jesus’ name.
