Today's Inspiration: Like the Israelites, God gives severe testing to humble you and test you to know what is in your heart. Deuteronomy 8:2. He wants you to know that man does not live by bread alone but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord. V3. The Lord disciplines you as a man disciplines his son. V5. We cannot be born again to live a life of old nature but to set them aside and commit to the Lord in exchange for a newly consecrated sanctified Christlike life which has been created in righteousness and truth. Ephesians 4:22-23.
Our goal is to be holy for we are a temple of the Holy spirit for unclean or sins of the flesh cannot dwell with the Holiness of the spirit of the living God in the core of our heart which is a mystery.
So we need to understand His desires for our life more than our own desires for our life. To lead a meaningful purposeful life should be our aim. We need to have more of the Holy Spirit in us to conquer the lust of the flesh.
Unless we are converted, we shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3. A totally sanctified life is one who is given a wedding robe to enter heaven. A totally sanctified life is one who lived the lifestyle of Christ and who focus on eternal rewards more than temporal rewards. Whilst you are in this part of heaven, live a life as if you are living in heaven. Impact others with kingdom values and live a life in total submission to God. For what will a man be profited if he gains the whole world and forfeit his own soul. Matthew 16:26.
Prayer: Lord let me live a life with continuous proclamation of Your excellences of Your glory. Fill me with the spirit of God till it overflows that I will have the power to conquer the lust of the flesh. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
