Through brokenness we come to a point where we are no longer self-centered, but Christ centered. It’s no longer about me, myself and I, but about others; and allowing the Lord to shine forth His glory through us to a dark world. We deliver God’s presence, power and reality everywhere we go. We understand that the Kingdom is manifested through the excellence of the power of God that moves through us.
The presence of Christ within us, not only removes the darkness within, but also the darkness we encounter. The light dispels the darkness; the darkness cannot dispel the light. The battles we go through often pertain to light coming against darkness. We are not only carriers of the glory of God, but also couriers. We are earthen vessels, and yet we have the glory of God within us. It is a war between the flesh and the spirit. The key to releasing the anointing is to trust the treasure, not the earthen vessel.
In all battles, the Holy Spirit strips us from our natural ways so that He can fight the battle for us. We come to God completely broken of our own knowledge, understanding and reasoning. As we step into His purpose our hearts cry out, “Oh God! Manifest your presence so that everyone will know who you are. Oh God! Let the world know that You are on the throne.” As He dispels the darkness, His light shines through us, from glory to glory!
2 Corinthians 4:7 “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.”
