TREM Devotional 14 July 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo
TOPIC: The Word Of God Is Your Sure Guide (TREM Devotional 14 July 2022)
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, And a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105 (KJV)
Negative thoughts and feelings lead to negative decisions. There are many people who have made the wrong decision just because they felt the moment they made the decision. Child of God, we are not to be carnally minded. The book of Romans 8:5 says: “For those who are after the flesh pay attention to the things of the flesh; but those that are after the Spirit, the things of the Spirit; for to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
In other words, carnal people speak and walk by sight. They go by feelings and by what someone said. Don’t you realize that feelings are subject to change? The way you think about something is based on the information you have about it. If you want a life of peace, think of the Word of God. The spirit of the flesh is enmity against God because it is not subject to the law of God.
What does it mean to go by sight? This happens when you pass by what you see, what you hear, what you taste, what you smell and what you touch. If you walk like this, you can never please God. You can’t because you’re not walking by faith. The righteous will live by faith. Being carnally minded is death because those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
As a believer you are not in the flesh, you are in the Spirit because the Spirit of God is in you. Right in you is all that God is. It is already here. Don’t let your feelings dictate your decisions. Make every decision of your life based on what God has said. Not what the human said, nor what someone influenced you to do. The truth is that each of us has his or her race in life.
Don’t let your feelings or the feelings of others guide your decision, let God’s Word guide you. The Word of God is the sure guide that can never mislead you.
