1 Corinthians 7:19
19 Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters.
Today’s Inspiration: Keeping His commandments matters. 1 Corinthians 7:19. You were bought with a price and you should not become slaves of men but be led to operate according to your calling. Verses 20, 23. Be God fearing and not be a man pleaser. Galatians 1:10. If you fear man, you have no understanding and therefore not mature. Maturity should be your goal. 1 Corinthians 14:20.
We do not mature because we have been arrested in our natural development during our growing up years. Your mom does everything for you thinking it’s good for you but actually to a child’s mind, your mom is sending a message to him or her that you are not capable enough to handle the issue. This leads to complacency instead of taking up new challenges. What you sow in early years harvest in later years. Galatians 6:7.
Inferiority and inadequacy set in and you grow up self criticising yourself you are not good enough. You should reverse this and express daily that you are capable to handle great exploits and nothing is impossible for you as God is in you and with you. Joshua 1:9.
We need to daily engage our thoughts with God’s words. By so doing, we are mindful to fill our daily conversations with God’s word that sets the culture of peace and security in the environment that pushes away stress and anxiety. We need to settle our mind.
What hinder our faith is our tendency to react when the going gets tough. Fear is dominant in everyone of our life. Fear hinders us to move forward. We tend to look at our past failures and avoid the path rather than believe in God and have the courage and power to forge forward. If we continue in this manner, we will never progress nor attain our aspirations. Satan’s greatest psychological weapon is to inflict fear, inferiority and inadequacy. Low esteem destroys our dreams, ruins our relationships and sabotages our Christian service.
The enemy is all out to rob you of your faith in God. Staying close to the Father was a day by day priority for Jesus. To make sure he keeps on track, he regularly spent time alone with the Father. How many times did scriptures repeatedly tells us that Jesus withdrew to a solitary place. Matthew 14:13.
