Keep the commandments of God – Prayer for February 20. There are things that we do that devalue us and also it is what we do that will add value to our lives. Let’s tell God to teach us to do the things that will give us value.
Bible Verse for Today
“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” (Psalm 119:11)
Doing what God told us to do will give us value. Most of the time the commandments that we were given is not because of God but because of us. It is to put us in check and to help us grow.
When the Bible talks about the carnal mind, it doesn’t mean a sinful mind only, though we know that the carnal mind leads to sin. To be carnal means to be devoid of powers, nothing extraordinary about the carnal mind. Just using the human understanding and just normal life – this kind of life has no value because there is nothing extraordinary about it, it is prone to mistake that can never be recovered from.
If there is no power in one’s life, it will be hard to make an impact on the work. The only way by which one can stop being carnal if the Word is added. The Word adds value to life, it takes away the flesh that can cause destruction and add life. The man without value will have no ground to stand, the things he will do will be according to his senses.
The Kingdom of God is not for people like this. Living this way, the way that adds no value to us, makes us be enemy of God. Romans 8:6 “The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.” The reason why it is the word that can give you value is that if you do read the Word and you do according to it, whatever you do will turn to be a success.
