DAY 4- COMMANDING THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER TOPIC: SURRENDER YOUR WILL
TOPIC: SURRENDER YOUR WILL
READ: Romans 7: 18-24
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit, for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death’’(Romans 8:1,2)
Have you ever sat down to examine your conduct over the years; how sometimes you found yourself take a decision or an action which did not agree with your conscience, but went ahead to implement it. Simply because it satisfied or would satisfy some perceived gain to you? It happens to us many times, especially when we are driven by greed, selfishness and the desire to satisfy our lusts.
Most often, we wished we had not taken that line of action, but many times, we appear helpless because we are eager to satisfy our flesh. It is a battle that goes on in us and it appears that we stand no chance of winning it, as the scripture put it. ‘’for to will is present with me, but how to perform that which is good I find not.’’ (Romans 7:18).
It follows, therefore, that it is not the WILL that matters, but the willingness to surrender that WILL to the Master Himself. That way, you will not cave into the warring and the compulsions of the flesh. The actions and decision taken thereby will please God.
• Pray for the Father to reveal His will for your life to you.
• Father, help me to crucify my flesh, in the name of Jesus.
• Lord, give me the power to overcome self, in Jesus name.
• Ask God for the spirit of humility to always do His will.
• Ask God for knowledge and understanding to always discern the mind of the Spirit of God.
