Not a Fair-Weather Christian

The eye of our understanding is to be opened so that we do not see the heat in what it represents. We have a single eye and our body is full of light (Matthew 6:22). We look not at the things which are seen but at the things which are not seen (2 Corinthians 4:18). We walk by faith and that pleases God (1 Corinthians 5:7; Hebrews 11:6).

A believer overcomes and does not see the heat when it comes. No one who is filled with the Spirit looks at the heat because that Christian regulates his own temperature. The three Hebrew boys regulated the temperature and they never got burned in the fiery furnace. We do not see the heat because the Lord has taken us over with a covering that is insulated with His divinity. We are then insulated from death, from sin and from condemnation-for nothing can penetrate our insulated covering from Heaven. We know that we are hid with Christ and nothing touches the resurrected, ascended Christ. We know that we are covered by Christ in the length and breadth and depth and height with unconditional love to take care of anything, right or wrong, against us. We do not see the heat because we are only involved with the single eye of redemption. Instead of being a scrub in the desert, we spread out our roots in love so that no matter the drought, we do not cease from yielding fruit because we are living in the fruit of redemption. We cannot cease from getting its resources because we become an expression of our own Source.
