JOYCE MEYER DEVOTIONAL FOR 29TH JANUARY 2024
If you are to fulfill God’s will for you in this life, the flesh—the selfish, rebellious sin nature—must die. It must lose its power.
Often you are not fully aware of sinful thoughts, actions, and attitudes in your heart because you are so caught up in the outer life. These things must be faced and dealt with if you are to enjoy the good life God has planned for you.
Paul said he wanted to do good things but found himself always doing wrong things. He described how miserable this made him. He wanted to be free, and after much struggling realized that only God could set him free and that through Jesus Christ He would (see Romans 7:18-25).
As you face seasons of testing you must learn that your flesh benefits you nothing. Only then can you deny the flesh and depend on the Life-giver to build His character in you.
Prayer of the Day: Father, help me in this season of testing and to overcome the sin in my life. In the name of Jesus, I depend on You to build Your character in my life, amen.
