Topic: Subduing The Flesh – Key To Destiny Fulfillment
Today Tuesday May 30, 2017
SCRIPTURE: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26:41
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To surrender your life to the dictates of your flesh is to forfeit your destiny.
The flesh is the greatest enemy of destiny. There are many people who followed the dictates of their flesh and lost their destiny. This was the tragedy of Esau. He followed the craving of his flesh and lost his birthright to Jacob.

Therefore, to surrender your life to the dictates of your flesh is to forfeit your destiny. This is because what your flesh wants is contrary to your spiritual life and destiny. To follow the flesh is to end up as a failure. The flesh should be the vehicle for your life and spirit and not the driver of your destiny.
When a driver loses control of the vehicle, disaster is inevitable. In the same manner, if you are unable to maintain a firm grip on your flesh, both spiritual and destiny disasters are inevitable.
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. The willingness of the spirit must translate into the obedience of the flesh for a solid spiritual life to be developed. Always ensure that your flesh obeys the promptings of your spirit. Watch and pray that you enter not into temptation!
Remember this: To surrender your life to the dictates of your flesh is to forfeit your destiny.
1. Put the cravings of the flesh under control by the power of the Holy Spirit.
2. Always maintain the atmosphere of prayer, asking God to grant you grace and victory over the flesh.
