Seeds Of Destiny Devotional Your Greatest Enemy In Life
Topic: Your Greatest Enemy In Life… [Seeds of Destiny 8 October 2019 Devotional]
To be crucified in the flesh is to be positioned for eternity with God. The flesh can terminate life and destiny faster than any terminal disease.
SCRIPTURE: For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. Romans 8:13
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To be crucified in the flesh is to be positioned for eternity with God. The flesh can terminate life and destiny faster than any terminal disease.
From our anchor Scripture above, we can ascertain clearly that man’s greatest enemy is not the devil. Man’s greatest enemy is not a witch in the village, an occult uncle, native witch doctor, or a wicked stepmother; man’s greatest enemy is not even cancer or other deadly diseases. Man’s greatest enemy in life is that old man called the FLESH. Your worst enemy is yourself, your flesh.
The truth is, your flesh can do to you what the devil may not do to you. The destruction your flesh can bring upon you, an outright enemy may not do that to you.
For instance, the children of Israel did to themselves what the ‘witchcraft’ of Balaam could not do to them; they allowed their flesh to ruin them by committing immorality and idolatry (Numbers 22, 23, 24 and 25).
Note that the flesh can terminate life and destiny faster than any terminal disease. To be crucified in the flesh is to be positioned for eternity with God.
Beloved, the greatest prayer to pray is not to get more money, fruit of the womb or life partner; the greatest prayer to pray is to ask God to set you free from the ways of the flesh. The way of the flesh is the way of anger, bitterness, immorality, envy or jealousy. It is the way of lying, fraud, cheating, duping, falsification of age or documents. The way of the flesh is also the way of pride, arrogance, ostentation, lust and vanity. And the end of the flesh is eternal regret in hell fire. That will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name. determine to live above the ways and dictates of the flesh.
REMEMBER THIS: To be crucified in the flesh is to be positioned for eternity with God. The flesh can terminate life and destiny faster than any terminal disease
- Repent if there is any area you have allowed your flesh to have control over you.
