Die to Self Daily – Prayer for September 22. Praise the Lord everybody! Have you ever had trouble getting your clothes to cooperate as you put them on? Probably not but imagine if you did. Imagine if your garments had a mind of their own. Your trying to get dressed for work and as you put your shirt on your pants are trying to take themselves off or visa verse. You like your clothes neat and clean and your clothes keep jumping off the hanger on to the floor.
Bible Verse for Today
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you.” (2 Corinthians 4:7-12)
The Bible talks about being born again and dying to self in other places, but did you know that the reason we must “die” is because Jesus wants to enter our lives by putting us on like a flesh suit, a garment He can wear as He works in this world.
Great you say! But for Him to be effective we must die. Dead people flesh has no needs, desires or wants so the power that gives us life, has no hindrances.
WE HAVE TO DIE! WE HAVE TO DIE SO THAT OTHERS MAY LIVE! Our flesh and our desires have at times been a great hindrance, they refuse to stay dead. They’ve had more resurrections then Lazarus and Jesus, but we must come to the point in our walk where we are determined to stay dead no matter what the cost. I’m fasting more, praying more and studying more.
We must deny ourselves to stay dead. Feed the spirit not the flesh. Dead people don’t argue about their so called “rights” They don’t kick against the “pricks” and their “flesh” is totally under subjection because it is not being fed. Remember, we need to die so God can use us so that others might live. God Bless You All!
