January 9, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional :- SET RIGHTEOUS LAWS FOR YOURSELF – JOHN 4:24
The next daily activity you must carry out to unlock the power of daily Christianity is setting righteous laws for yourself and living by those laws.
Discipline yourself never to come to God’s presence with complains first of all. Make a habit of thanking God first before bombarding Him with complaints and requests. Going further, you must discipline yourself to have a consistent prayer schedule. There are a lot of people who wait to be ‘led by God’ before they pray. Unfortunately, such people end up not praying enough, if at all.
The Bible tells us that the law was our schoolmaster – a pedagogue. A pedagogue is the man that takes a little boy from his father’s house and leads him to the entrance of his school so that he can be trained. The law was our schoolmaster to bring us into the anointing.
You are never going to come into the anointing until you put yourself under some form of law. All the people that said you can just claim anything by faith, what did you see in their lives by faith? They are the ones that make the Bible become mystical. They ignore law and discipline and do whatever is convenient for them under the guise of ‘being led’ to do so.
There is a Bible and there is a Holy Spirit. If you don’t spend time with the Holy Spirit, you can’t know the Bible. People who don’t spend time in the word of God and in fellowship with the Holy Spirit tend to end up with all sorts of strange spirits in operation in their lives.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to set the right laws for myself. Give me the strength I need to discipline myself to live by them. Amen.
