PRESSING THROUGH TO EXERCISE GODLINESS
I AM training My people to obey My Word – body, soul and spirit. In places where you have not yet pressed through to liberty, I want you to overcome. When you exercise your will to make the right choices of obeying My Word, it is like resistance training. Temptations, soul habits and demonic oppression press against you to weaken your new beginning. It is a labor where you practice one thrust at a time to overcome that which is heavy and pressing against you. You may feel weak and tired and exhausted at first. You may suffer waves of hopelessness as these forces press against your new choices, wanting you to fall into apathy, carelessness, and lukewarm-ness. Don’t let them. Submit your body, soul and spirit habits to Me, resist the devil and he will flee. As you exercise yourself in the labor of godliness, you will grow so strong you will have freedom and liberty into new and healthy living.
1 Thess 5:23-24 NKJV
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul , and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.
1 Cor 6:19-20 NKJV
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
3 John 2 NKJV
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
