(The Holy Spirit Perambulates Your Being)
TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 6:16 AMPC
“What agreement [can there be between] a temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in and with and among them and will walk in and with and among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”
When you do a detailed study of 2 Corinthians 6:16, you’ll conclude that God lives in your physical body.
Here’s the phrase I’ll like you to take particular note of: “…I will dwell in and with and among them and will walk in and with and among them….” “Walk” here is translated from the Greek word “emperipateo” which means “to perambulate.”
To perambulate means to walk up and down the bounds of a property in a supervisory manner. It refers to an official assigned to a border, who keeps moving up and down that border, looking to see if anything has gone wrong so he can fix or replace it or notify of any trouble.
In other words, God, through the Holy Spirit, perambulates in you! His work in perambulating in you is to ensure that if anything goes wrong in your body, it’ll be fixed. If it needs to be renewed, He’ll renew it. Hallelujah!
You may ask: “So why am I in this condition if the Holy Spirit has this ministry in me? Why is my body ravaged with sickness?”
The answer is simple; it’s because you haven’t activated His power and given Him the liberty to function in your life the way He wants to. You can activate that power today through faith in the Word of God, and by speaking in other tongues.
Be conscious that the Holy Spirit lives in you in all His power, therefore, no sickness or disease can thrive in your body, which is His temple. His presence in you and with you, shields you against the vices of the evil one.
John 14:16-17; Romans 8:11; 1 John 4:4
Dear Father, by virtue of the indwelling and abiding presence of the Holy Spirit in me, I’m infused with supernatural ability and wisdom to live triumphantly today and always, over and above all situations, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
