Mortify The Deeds…

A balloon expands only when pressure is applied. I need to keep blowing to have get a desired effect. Sin , like a ballon when dwelt in continuously grows and grows  but only that it has no desired effect whatsoever. When it goes out of proportion, death is inevitable…

Everyday we are blessed with, God’s mercy is offered us in abundance. He gives us the gift of true repentance so we can come out of sin and into a life of purity. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.(Rom 8:13 KJV)

Sin grows… Dealing with  while we can and have the time to is a great gift we can bless ourselves with.Deal with it when God brings that uncleanliness to your attention…

Allow somethings to die …Allow that fornication to die… Allow that selfishness to die… Allow that wickedness to die… Allow that impatience to die… Allow that low esteem to die… Allow that envy to die… Allow that pride to die…Allow that evil intent to die.  

Refuse to let that which can kill your life live…If you don’t kill it, it would kill you.The best thing to do is give it a decent burial and get on with your new life! Run to God when the coast is still clear.
It is always better to respond to God’s mercy than God’s judgement… Selah

(I pray God , though His Spirit grant us the grace to live lives that are holy and acceptable before Him in His Son’s Precious Name…) 

No matter what…

We go through so many things in life enough to crush our souls and leave us more destitute than the prodigal son away from home. Challenges are a part of life we can hardly run away from. They come in every shape, size, and colour and from every sphere, people and the places we least see in our mind’s eye.

Regardless of any challenge ,trial, persecution, rejection, abuse we endure , we must embrace them with wisdom and always seek God to bring us out and use us and the lessons from our experiences as a source of comfort to others in the areas we have found freedom.

Count it all joy when you face those dreadful moments(Canton Jones calls them ‘season of difficult lessons’), for in and through them , your ribs of faith strengthen birthing out more patience, your muscles of hope build up and your heart of endurance becomes ready for come what may.

So, no matter what you’re going through, just remember you’re going through. Allow yourself to go through so you can breakthrough and breakout into new dimensions. Change is necessary so that change can come into effect. It takes change for change to happen and sometimes for that change to come to life it takes an excruciating painful change. But always remember, no matter what you’re going through, you’re going through.

God’s love and mine,
Adja.
