35 Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.
Today’s Inspiration: Jesus never failed to seek God diligently every morning before he starts his day whilst on Earth. He did not conform to people’s demands even though people were clamoring to seek his counsel. He followed His father’s instructions to the letter and went to perform what He is required to do. Mark 1:35-39. He was not even influenced by what His disciples wanted him to do. It’s so important to fulfill His will and to seek Him early in the morning before you begin the day. This is why He is so effective in his ministry.
Today many people are still carrying guilt of the past even though Jesus has carried them at cavalry. Flesh cannot get you anywhere. Once we are in Christ we are no longer under the law but under grace. Not only must we be in Christ but Christ must be fully in is before we can conquer flesh and be in the spirit. Conquering flesh is a process but the earlier we conquer the better for us. So let’s leave our flesh behind and move in the spirit. Romans 8:6-9. We can do it when Christ is fully in is. It’s only in Him we have life and ever so abundantly. John 10:10.
Flesh is always against the spirit and so we need to take heed not to allow flesh to deceive us. Satan can only deceive us through our flesh which is enmity against God. If we are in the flesh we don’t belong to Christ.
Through his death, Jesus removed the guilt of sin that has stuck on us stubbornly to our souls. Nothing can remove that stain except the blood of Jesus that was shed for us on the cross. He removed sins curse in our lives and we are no longer under the curse. Galatians 3:13. It was for freedom that Christ has set us free. Galatians 5:1.
Even in his lifetime Jesus goes around forgiving sins and healing and casting out demons out of people. This makes forgiveness a priority in healing our spirit. The spirit must be healed with His word as medicine to be consumed in our hearts to receive healing in our soul and body. When forgiveness is consumed in the spirit, the guilt and anxiety including fear are removed and the body responds to the word of God filled in the spirit to be healed. 3 John 2. Some sickness however is a spiritual warfare that the devil is hindering you in the furtherance of the kingdom. This is when you have to be still seeking God diligently the strategies to vanquish the enemy’s fiery darts against you. Ephesians 6:16.
Hearing specifically from the Lord and obeying and acting on the voice will lead to the fulfillment of our vision. We have to pray for healing of the spirit of people in this nation. Divine health must be brought back to the nation and so does morality. MayGod be praised! Healing is a process in God’s timing and He is always on our side and chastisement was upon Him to grant us peace. So today enter into His rest. Matthew 11:28-30.
