THEME: CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST
“For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,”
-As Christians, we are called to walk properly as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But to put on our Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts (Romans 13:13-14). For if one unites himself with a prostitute he is one with her in body, for it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:16-17). We are cautioned from having fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather to expose them (Ephesians 5:11). We should then put our minds on the things above and not on the things below which are fleeting. Through prayer, praise and thanksgiving in our hearts, governed by the Holy Spirit, we are able to overcome that which is of the flesh. As we know, cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength and whose heart departs from the Lord (Jeremiah 17:5). We should have no confidence in the flesh but have faith in Christ who delivers us from all fleshly lusts. For those whose minds are governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God, and does not submit to the law of God, nor can it do so, and those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God (Romans 8:6-8). We are called to walk by faith and not by sight, for whatever is not of faith is sin. If we walk by faith, we please God and exhibit our confidence in Him.
Lord You are good and Your mercies endures forever. Father You are loving and Your love is everlasting. Savior You are good and Your mercies endures forever. Holy Spirit You are loving and Your love endures to all generations. We love You Lord with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength, thank You for loving us first. We repent for all the times we have set our minds on the flesh which is death, and humbly ask You Holy Spirit to lead us on the path of life. Forgive us all our sins and cover us with Your precious blood Lord. Many are the times we have gone against Your holy will, help us to seek first Your kingdom and righteousness, and You will add all things unto us. Help us to spread the gospel in all the nations of the world that many may know You Jesus and believe in You. Grant those who do not know You the access to Your heavenly kingdom through the free gift of salvation. Empower us Lord to be of help to all those who are poor and lack their basic needs, for the glory of Your name. Guide us to help those who need us most, as we store up our treasures in heaven where their no moth nor rust and the thieves cannot steal. Thank You Holy Spirit for Your fruit of love in our lives, families, churches and nation, help us to love without reservations. May Your purpose always prevail in our lives and may we accomplish all that You have called us to do. Teach us how to always worship You in spirit and in truth Holy Spirit as we commune with You. May Your praise be always on our lips. We desire You indwell in us always Holy Spirit and intercede for us with groaning that cannot be uttered. We desire Your presence always in our lives, draw us close to You each day. Help us to be satisfied with You alone. Our Father who art in heaven; hallowed be Your name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from evil; for thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory; forever and ever. Amen
