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
