Winning the war over the flesh
Our morning routine is the set-off for the day and set our mood, strength, capacity, and direction for the day ahead of us. Early morning, at 5 am when everyone is still asleep is the most precious and vital time to buy out. It is like given unto God a tenth of your time, a sacred offering unto Him.
Before we set off on our way, our feet must be aligned in divine purpose.
Finding it difficult to give up some of your sleep or time:
I’ve learned soon enough when I started journaling, that my body and mind must adapt to the changes that God wanted to add to my life for me to live in divine purpose and counseling. One of the areas that were mostly influenced was my time and thoughts. I had to accept the changes by waking up earlier than usual; writing, listening to God how to strategize for the day.
Galatians 5 :17
For the flesh desires
what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit
what is contrary to the flesh.
They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.
Even when my body and mind resist the things of the Spirit of God, I reinforce the things of the Spirit which are God’s divine plans and thoughts for my life.
We have to train our bodies and mind how to be a living sacrifice unto God and to be transformed according to Romans 12:1&2. With Prayer journaling, I have found a strategy to give the flesh a knock-out and to break free from fleshly desires trying to keep me in bondage and keeping my blessed life from me.
The flesh does not like routine and being organized, especially in the field of your godly purpose. I’m crucifying the flesh daily with every journal entry or activity to come unto the obedience of God.
