Walking in the Flesh is a Snare

Robert Rajamani

They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you – Exodus 23:33

The Lord delivered the Israelites from slavery in Egypt in a supernatural way and promised them a land of their own. He said you will possess the land I will deliver the inhabitants of the land in your hand, but you shall drive them out and make no covenant with them or follow their gods, if you do that it will be a snare to you.

Likewise, the Lord has delivered us from the kingdom of darkness where we were in bondage to sin and flesh, He has made us a new creature and He Himself comes and dwells within our born again spirit and He desires that we live a life being led by His Spirit and not walk in the flesh as we used to. He desires that we do not compromise with the lifestyle of walking in the flesh.

It’s very easy to get into a routine of living life in the flesh. Walking in the flesh can be expensive, it will end up being a snare and will keep you in bondage. Make no compromise with fear, unbelief, sickness, poverty. Just resist it. They have no place in your life, drive them out from your life, if you let them stay, they will become a snare to you.

Make a deliberate effort to always walk in the Spirit. Living life in the Spirit is the normal Christian life. It’s a life of Power and Triumph. Make sure to spend time with Him in Prayer, Speak in tongues, when you speak in tongues you let the Spirit of God pray for you and to edify you. Spend time in the Word daily. Meditate on the Word all the time and let the Spirit of God quicken the Word which applies to your situation. He will let that Word create Faith in you heart and enable you to overcome the situation you might be facing.

When the Spirit of God and the Word of God come together to create Faith in your heart, nothing in this physical world can defeat you, no circumstance can overpower you. You will be victorious over everything that life and the devil will throw at you.

Be led by His Spirit and the Word and be free and victorious.

I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. – Gal 5:16

Impossible Situation is meant to Promote You

Robert Rajamani

No weapon formed against you shall prosper – Isaiah 54:17

Impossible situations you face are meant to Promote you to another Level!

In our walk with the Lord, there will be times when we face an impossible situation. In such times, He does not expect us to be discouraged and give-up, in fact it’s the right situation to push you into another dimension, to promote you from where you are to where He intends to take you.

It all depends on us, in such situations do you speak and expect victory as you trust in the Lord or do you speak defeat and hopelessness. There is no situation or mountain in this life which can overcome and defeat you, unless you let it. Life and Death is in the power of your tongue (Proverbs 18:21)

Those mountains that come against us is not from the Lord, but it’s from the enemy of our soul. Goliath stood as a mountain against the children of God, but David was not willing to be defeated, he trusted in the Lord enough to know that this mountain is no match for him, as He relies on the Lord. David’s response to the impossible situation he faced, turned out to be the turning point in his life. God used that situation to promote David to a level which would take him to be the King of Israel.

So when you walk through adverse circumstances, don’t ask, Why Lord? There are times, God will take you away from such situations, but then there other times when He wants you to stand against it and speak to that mountain to be moved (Mark 11:23) , for God is planning to use that situation to promote and push you to another level of fulfilling your purpose in life.

Let no circumstance, be it sickness, poverty or anything else discourage you, we know we are more than conquerors in Christ (Romans 8:37).

When you are facing the mountain it might feel and look like its impossible, but don’t give up, just stand firm on your confession of victory in Christ, you will see the mountain being moved and that giant being defeated. As He said to Joshua, Be strong and courageous, Fear not, I will be with you. (Joshua 1:9)

He always leads us in triumph in Christ (2 Corinthians 2:14)

God Dwells Among Us!

Robert Rajamani

The place, O Lord, You have made for Your dwelling [among them], –(Exodus 15:17)

He wants to make a dwelling among them. He wants to dwell among His people, not so that he can control them and make them follow His rules. Its because He knows that we need Him to be able to stand against all that the enemy will bring against us. If He just leaves us alone, we would be consumed by the enemy. Its only He who can defend and deliver and fight for us as He delivered the Israelites from the Egyptians through the red-sea in a miraculous way. He fought for them, so that they can be free. He can do that for us only if we allow Him to dwell with us.

It grieves His heart to know that we tend to want to go independent of Him and want to live our own life, not realizing that there is an enemy of our soul waiting to attack us and we are not strong enough to fight him on our own. That’s the reason God wants to be with us and dwell with us so that He can fight for us and defend us.

In the Old Covenant He wanted the Israelites to make a physical temple for Him to dwell among them, in the New Covenant, He comes and dwells in our born again spirit. Holy Spirit living in our spirit is our protection and guidance and wisdom. All those you are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. He dwells in us, His Spirit and His Word abides in us and fights for us. Let the Spirit pray for us in tongues and win the battle for us.

Allow Him to dwell with you and guide you in safety and abundance. He is our loving Father. The Lord is always wanting to fight for you and let you rest, just like a good father would protect and fight for His son or daughter.
