God Is Met IN Us

I woke up this morning hearing a Scripture in my heart…. the last part of 2 Corinthians 6:16 As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”

I love the Greek preposition “en” meaning IN. A lot of translations use the word with and among in this verse. The word “en” means IN and denotes a state or condition of rest; it does mean with but only in the context of within – as in, the condition (state) in which something operates from the inside (within).

God has said “I dwell IN them and I walk IN them

Walk is to walk around; it is a Hebraic term meaning to conduct life, to be conversant; to live

God is at home IN you, at rest IN you. He walks around IN you, conducting His life IN you, conversing with you IN you, He lives IN you.

I like another meaning of the word dwell in Greek which is MET — God is met IN you.

You meet God IN you. That sounds like the Apostle Paul in Galatians 1:15-16: …. it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, (16) To reveal his Son IN (en) me…

Paul said in Acts 17:27: to these pagan, idol worshipping Greeks.. “That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far (not at a distance) from every one of us”

God is met IN us… we are His habitation, His dwelling place!
