Caution: Knowing Your Worth Is a Commandment: we need to know who we really are for us to
conquer the power of the flesh because the flesh is the enemy of humans, our flesh demands
different things both good and bad, foolish and wise. a child is been served food even if the
child is full the child will still ask for more. When two kids are playing with toys one will love the
other ones toy despite the child has more toys than the other, the child will be claiming
the toys the other one is playing with some children that loves to take
what is not theirs when the children sees something they loves instead of asking for it they will
take it without even asking, This is how it begins. Back in the old times, we didn’t notice this, and
we didn’t border about it, but thank goodness we have Christ now and
we thank God for his salvation, but now we need to locate ourselves
Caution: Knowing Your Worth Is a Commandment and figure yourself out
Now we need to check ourselves to figure ourselves out. For example, some people will say that
they can’t live without alcohol that their body can’t take it without drinking alcohol, other people
will say that their body can’t take it without fornication, it isn’t their fault it is because the body
has become used to it despite they have a wife or husband but they will still have an
extramarital affair, and if the person is single as much
the body has gotten used to it that is how the
person will be fornicating around, and some bodies are used to lies and can’t do without it,
some also can’t do without shedding blood and fighting, Some love betrayal that kind of body
as much as you please and satisfy that body, the body will always betray, some can’t do without
keeping malice and some are used to jealousy, some are used to anger and discontentment
they are never satisfied with what they have even if what they have is the best,
some are used to having it all, they want to have it all, some are used to not sharing,
they find it difficult to give and some are used to murmuring, anything that happens to them they always murmur
about it, and while some are used to wickedness, they can’t live without wickedness e.t.c. All
together which one do we know we can’t do without? Because to be honest, if you truly love God
you need to deny the demands of the flesh. Jesus said in Mark 8:34 And when he had called
the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me (KJV). Paul said in Galatians 5:19-21
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness,
lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions,
heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of which I tell you before,
as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the
kingdom of God (KJV). Caution: Knowing Your Worth Is a Commandment:
That’s the reason why flesh is the enemy of humans. Jesus said in Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray,
that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak (KJV).
There are sometimes that when we do something after doing it we begin to regret it immediately.
Many men of God has fall because of flesh, many prophet that has walk with God has fall because of flesh,
many people has fall because of flesh do you now see the reason why flesh is the enemy of humans.
When many prophet are falling because of flesh not to talk of you and I that knows nothing, yes we are born again,
we have given our life to Christ but it doesn’t end there, if you want to walk with God you need to be his friend and
to be his friend you need to kill the demands of flesh because if we don’t do so we won’t be able to please God,
we won’t be able to be his friend. Do you now see that we need to locate ourselves so that we will be able
to fight the demands of flesh, It could be one of what i listed earlier so if we want to be God’s friend we need to locate ourselves and crucify it.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut if off, and cast it from thee:
for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body
should be cast into hell (KJV). Caution: Knowing Your Worth Is a Commandment: I know you
will be wondering why I said our flesh is the enemy of humans, it’s because our flesh demands
different things both good and bad, foolish and wise, that is why it’s compulsory if you really want to be
God’s friend and do his will we need to crucify our flesh. Like I said earlier our flesh demands different
things and is what we use to bring up the body it will get used to, so that’s why we need to locate
ourselves to see our weakness and crucify it so that our flesh
won’t stand between us and God. People that devote themself to God it’s not that their flesh doesn’t demand but because
they love God, they fear him and they have devoted their selves to him because of this they overcome flesh.
When someone dies there is no connection between the flesh and the spirit any more, so we shouldn’t allow flesh
to come between us and God and we shouldn’t allow our flesh to deprive us the kingdom of God, and we should have dominance over our flesh.
Let tell you a real life story
There is a man in a small town he’s very popular in the town, he’s a popular tout, his parents has prayed about it
for him to be in the path of God but all in vain, anytime they said he should change he always tell them
that his body is addicted to all what he’s doing so how can he change but one day by himself he called him self
by his name and he asked himself what did he gain by doing all these and right there he decided to totally break relationship
between him and his flesh that is how he over-came the demands of flesh and he turned away from his evil deeds
and be became responsible. Only you can overcome yourself where do we locate ourselves, is it in anger, malice,
unforgiving spirit, worshipping of idols e.t.c. We need to locate ourselves and our weakness in other to crucify it.
The Bible says in Galatians 5:24:And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts (KJV).
And I pray into your life these prayers
1. The power to be able to locate yourself and crucify your flesh shall fall upon you in Jesus name.
2. Every of lust of flesh that has entangled with your body shall be destroyed in Jesus name.
3. The grace to be able to do and understand the will of God shall overwhelm you in Jesus mighty name.
4. Foundational pollution that is tying you down to your flesh shall be destroyed in Jesus mighty name.
5. The anointing to serve God in spirit shall overwhelm you in Jesus mighty name Amen
