BEAT YOUR BODY
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Sunday, 6th August, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
(1 Corinthians 9:27)
“But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.”

So long as the understanding of God’s Word, His plans and purposes are all engrained in our spirits and in our minds, your flesh will never understand the will of God. More so, the Bible says that the flesh and the spirit always go in opposite directions (Gal. 5:17). This puts believers in a peculiar situation.
Often times, there is a willingness in your heart to do God’s will, but the flesh is uncooperative. Apostle Paul in our scriptural text today states clearly what we must do when our flesh gets in the way of compliance to God’s Word – bring it into subjection!
If you know you ought to pray, do not listen to the dictates of the flesh. Instead, coerce it. Making an excuse of tiredness or sleepiness when you ought to study the Word or head to Church would only rob you of spiritual benefits and blessings. Hence, beat your body when you need to, and do God’s will nonetheless.

🌏 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Panama 🇵🇦…
The nation is almost 100% Christian. Only 3% are unreached with the Gospel. However the Christian body isn’t doing much of missionary work. The main obstacles to greater mission being lack of unity, lack of vision and lack of training.
🙏🏼We are praying for more effective teaching ministries to flood the nation to equip and raise more labourers for the Kingdom.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Father, help me to yield to the Spirit of God always and not to my flesh in Jesus name.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
Dear Father, I thank you for your mercies over me since the year began. I am grateful for your ever-abiding Presence in me and with me and I declare that my confidence is not in my own ability but in your Word. Help me to walk in faith throughout this month and to show forth your praises in all that I do. I consecrate my whole body, soul and spirit to you today. Let your Name be glorified in me in Jesus Name. Amen.
