PRAYERS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
March 12, 2017

WE MUST BE LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THE CALLED & ANOINTED:
AS PROFESSED CHRISTIANS, THE HOLY SPIRIT MUST BE OUR GUIDE IN EVERY STEP TAKEN.
EVERY RIGHT STEP IN A RIGHT DIRECTION AND EVERY RIGHT DECISION MADE ARE TO THE GLORY OF GOD.
TO HAVE SELF CONTROL IS AN OVER-STATEMENT.
HENCE NO ONE CREATE HIMSELF, AND THE WORLD WAS NOT CREATED BY MAN. THAT IS TO SAY, YOU AND THE WOLRD THAT YOU ARE LIVING IN ARE GOD’S HANDI-WORK.
THEREFORE, GIVING THE CREDIT TO ONESELF FOR GOOD MANNERS, OR GODLY BEHAVIORS BY THE REASON OF SELF CONTROL IS AMOUNT TO DENYING GOD HIS RIGHTFUL CREDIT AND GLORY.
ROMANS, 8:-14 “FOR AS MANY AS ARE LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THESE ARE SONS OF GOD.”
BEING LED BY THE SPIRIT, ONE HAS TO GIVE THE GLORY TO THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN HIM: AND TO TO ONESELF.
THERE ARE TWO FORCES THAT ARE WILLING AND READY TO CONTROL HUMAN. THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHICH IS OF GOD. AND THE SPIRIT OF THE FLESH, WHICH WAS BORN OF DISOBEDIENT.
THERE IS NO IN BETWEEN. IS EITHER YOU ARE BEING CONTROLLED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, OR BY THE SPIRIT OF THE FLESH WHICH IS CARNAL.
YOUR BEHAVIOR TELLS UNDER WHAT AUTHORITY YOU ARE.
GOD DOES NOT CREATE MAN TO BE SELF-CONTROLLED.
PSALM, 100:-3 “KNOW THAT THE LORD, HE IS YOUR GOD: IT IS HE WHO MADE US, AND NOT WE OURSELVES. WE ARE HIS PEOPLE, AND THE SHEEP OF HIS PASTURE.”
ROMANS, 8:-9 “BUT YOU ARE NOT CONTROLLED BY YOUR SINFUL NATURE. YOU ARE CONTROLLED BY THE SPIRIT, IF YOU HAVE THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN YOU. AND REMEMBER THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST LIVING IN THEM DO NOT BELONG TO HIM.” (NLT)
HOWEVER, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT WE MAY DISCIPLINE OUR BODY FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TO TAKE TOTAL CONTROL AS APOSTLE DID IN THE BOOK OF 1CORINTHIANS, 9:-27.
LET US GIVE GLORY UNTO THE LORD FOR THE ENDLESS GRACE RECEIVED THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. WE ARE BEING LED OR CONTROLLED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT AND NOT BY OURSELVES AS SOME MAY CLAIM.
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.
REMAIN BLESSED IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
