Key Scripture: 1 Corinthians 6:12
Good morning Saints : ) Our Father is so AWESOME!! He is awesome not just because of what He has done for us and our ancestors; but He is awesome just because of who He IS!! I just felt that on my spirit, and wanted to share it with ya'll. I pray that everyone had a blessed weekend, and an amazing time in the Lord in service on yesterday. I am really excited about the message for this week, and I pray that everyone will have an open heart to receive it. I had planned to speak about "Sacrifice & Worship", but Father said differently. Therefore, I will be obedient, and let God have His way!
This morning I want to talk about the things you are feeding to your spirit. Our key scripture comes from 1 Corinthians 6:12. "All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any." If you have to read that again, please do. In other words, it is saying that it is not a "sin" to do certain things, but it is not "wise" to do them. Again, what are you feeding to your spirit? The Bible says in 1 Peter 5:8 to be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. This scripture is not talking about being sober & vigilant in our "flesh", because Ephesians 6:12 says that we do not wrestle against "flesh & blood". Therefore, this scripture is talking about being sober & vigilant in our "spirit". Again, what are you feeding to your spirit?
Stay with me this morning, because this is VERY important information to know. Remember, His word says that "my people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge" in Hosea 4:6. The things that we listen to, watch, say, and do may be "lawful", but is it expedient; is it wise? Remember this, Satan uses what is "inside" of us to destroy us. If you don't believe me, take a look at Adam & Eve. God told Adam to NOT eat of the forbidden fruit. Well, Satan heard that as well. Therefore, from that point on, his goal was to get Adam to disobey God so that Adam would die. God then put Adam to sleep and took a rib "out" of him to create Eve; so Eve came "out of" Adam. What did Satan do? He turned around and used what was "in" Adam to destroy him. Well Saints, Satan uses the same tricks even today. He will use what you put in you, and feed to your spirit to destroy you; don't give him anything to work with!!
I thank God so much for His Word. I pray that it blesses someone to grow more in our Lord. Remember Saints, it may be lawful, but is it expedient? Don't equip Satan with the weapons to use against you!! Until next time, take care and God Bless.
