Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2018 May 12

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled” (2 Corinthians 10:3-6).

Today’s Morsel:  So many people are warring after the flesh.  Their flesh is totally out of control and they can’t stop it from sinning against God.  Their flesh has them in abundance of debt, greedy for gain, restless, aching, lonely, out of shape, and not to mention filled with fear. The flesh battle is causing many to lose hope of life.  Many are giving up.  They are throwing in the towel. Trying to change their identity through body piercing and tattooing.  They want to be someone else all because of the warring in their flesh.  Paul told the church at Galatia: “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another” (Galatians 5:16-26).  If you want to stop the flesh war, walk in the Spirit.

Sing:  Let me walk with You Jesus. Don’t ever leave me alone.  For without You, I could never, no never make heaven my home.

Thought For Today:  “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:1).
