WORD24/7 INSPIRATIONS FROM JOEL ASIAW
IDENTITY CRISIS 8
[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1
This scripture must be understood properly. The spirit man who is the real you never sins and is perfect.
We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.1 John 5:18
So you who never sins, can and should never be condemned when the body and soul sins or thinks stupidity. When you feel condemned as a result of guilt bring the body to God’s presence to be liberated.Don’t flee from fighting the good fight because you feel ashamed for acting ungodly. 1 Timothy 6:12
The fact that you feel guilty means you know you are not the one who is in charge but sin in the body ruling over you the spirit man. Romans 7:14-25
Unbelievers don’t struggle with sin,so if you are struggling with sin,that clearly shows you’re in the process towards liberty so don’t quit renewing and rewiring your mind nor quit singing praises and worshipping God in Spirit and in truth.
These actions empower the spirit man to really bring the whole association or structure to order.
Renewing of the mind is a life time process.There’s actually no person in this life who is done with renewing their mind.But immediately one stops this process the mind has nothing to ponder on than useless and unprofitable thoughts.
The real test of spiritual maturity is when these negative thoughts come mentally but the spirit man who is the owner disallows it from happening visibly or physically.Romans 6:12,John 15:5,2 Corinthians 10:2-5,1 Samuel 2:9
Don’t give your soul every demand that he places before you.Truth is,you can only take this decision if you are really in charge of the manager(soul) and the servant (body).
How do you take charge?
How do you build your muscles to look tough and strong? By training it always and getting addicted to the process.Likewise,the spirit man has a favorite meal that’s the word of God. 1 Timothy 4:8
For everyone who continues to feed on milk is obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action), for he is a mere infant [not able to talk yet]!But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law. Hebrews 5:13-14
Don’t just read the bible as a story book.It’s the training that empowers or fills the spirit man to be able to take charge as the owner of this structure.Put on your spiritual lens whenever it’s time to meditate on the word. Ephesians 1:17,Ephesians 3:14-19
Whenever the soul desires strong passions to engage in sinful acts,the body or the spirit must give it authority or permission depending on who is more stronger.
This is what happens when you do what you hate…….
