Daily Read - 2 Chronicles 6:12-8:10; Romans 7:14-8:8; Psalm 18:1-15; Proverbs 19:24-25
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,
who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
When My people walk in the Spirit, the enemy cannot attack them with any form of condemnation. Those who allow the Holy Spirit to take control of their lives are My sons and do not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. I order their steps because they run after righteousness.
Walking in My Spirit leads to righteousness, which closes the door to sin. Without sin, the accuser has nothing to pin on you and his demon cohorts of guilt, shame, and condemnation flee away.
So much time is spent cleaning up the messes My people find themselves in as a result of walking in the flesh because sin blinds them to the traps of the enemy. Fix your gaze on Me and I will lead you in the way you are to go. I am a lamp to your feet and a light on your path. My truth illuminates every obstacle strategically set before you by the networks of hell. I make sure you see them all. Walking in the Spirit guarantees you a successful journey in your life, free from needless stumbling in the flesh.
Turn your eyes on Me and the enemy will turn and flee. The quickest way to free yourself from the heaviness of condemnation is to run into My presence under the shelter of My wings.
Condemnation does not enter through closed doors. If you refuse to invite him through the door of your life by the welcome mat of flesh and sin, he will not enter because My blood stops him.
Condemnation does not come from Me. It tries masquerading as the conviction of the Holy Spirit, but it leads people down a path of regret and depression, and My Spirit always leads to repentance and grace. Condemnation weighs My people down and makes it very difficult to finish the race of your high calling. Conviction lightens your load because it brings you to repentance putting a new spring in your step.
Learn to walk daily in the Spirit and begin exercising the spiritual muscles of your spirit man. You will soon come to realize you can finish the race that I set before you!
You will run and not grow weary; You will walk and not faint.
