16 “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or obedience leading to righteousness?”
Today’s Inspiration: You are enslaved to what you hear and obey. Romans 6:16. The Holy Spirit’s voice is meant to free us to serve in the newness of the spirit and not in the old nature.
It was for our freedom that Christ has set us free by His blood that redeems us. So, let us remain free and bear fruit to Holiness and in the end everlasting life. V22.
Times of uncertainty comes to us to prick into our inward parts to strengthen our faith to reflect on God’s goodness and to remember God’s promises to us. Sometimes we want answers to our problems but God is sovereign. He knows what is good for us and we don’t deserve any explanation from Him but God knows the time and season for us to change our course of navigation for His glory. He did it to Jacob and Joseph who could not foresee their future except to cling onto God’s promises for the future until God meets them at the appointed time. For all that God does, it was all for His glory.
Trials are sent to refine you to Christ-likeness. The likeness of Christ is not produced by imitation but by how much of habitation He is in you. Colossians 1:27. Therefore set your mind on things above not on things on the Earth. God be praised.
Prayer: O Lord have compassion on Your servants! Satisfy us early with Your mercy that we may rejoice and be glad all the days of our life. In Jesus name Amen.
