GOODNEWS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR JUNE 10, 2022 (BURRY THE FLESH)
Scripture: 1Corinthians 9:27
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
The Bible says we are born of the spirit. This means the Spirit should take dominance in our daily life. As Christians we are not supposed to be governed and function by the flesh. There is always tension between your flesh and your spirit as the Bible expresses but as you grow in the word of God, your spirit gains mastery over the flesh. The carnal or the flesh is the source of doubt, backsliding and all manner of failure. When you use the flesh to discern, you get misinformed decision because the flesh is deceiving. There are people you are no longer talking to, duties you quitted in church or some relationships that you broke because your flesh gave you negative information. Apostle Paul wrote to the church is Corinth that he buried his flesh every day.
This shows you that even the great Apostle was somehow tempted to go astray but he allowed his spirit to never give an exhumation order to his flesh. Everyday, remind your spirit through the word and prayer that you are the master of my life not the flesh. Put nine-inch nails on the flesh every day. You are born of the spirit so you are governed by the spirit not the flesh. As you read this prophetic word and pray today, declare that every area where your flesh was trying to take dominance, the spirit takes over. Never give your spirit one cold snack and starve it. Give your inner-man a rich menu of the word of God and see victories coming from all angles.
My spirit is the governor of my life and I empower my spirit by the knowledge of Jesus Christ. My flesh is a slave to my spirit. I am spirit led in the name of Jesus.
1 Corinthians 15:45
