Daily Devotional from The Redeemed Evangelical Mission
The only way you can be on top of the world system as a believer is for you to make the decision to order your life based on the word of God. Otherwise, you will remain minced meat in the hands of the world system. Others are not going to change, but we have a power that can lift us up. We have things within us and available to us. We have a power that can silence the powers of darkness and cause us to take our portion.
God has called us and told us to come up higher. It is an invitation to you from God, telling you to grow up and that you can no longer remain a baby. I am calling all believers to rise up and be high-flyers. It is an invitation to leave the mundane and mediocrity. It is an invitation to shoot for excellence, to leave your footprints on the sands of time, to come up to a life of abundance and success, and to live a fulfilled life.
But the problem is that spiritual men and women want to live their lives in the flesh. “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (Romans 8:6, KJV). To be carnally minded means that you are thinking like the rest of the world even though you are a spiritual person. As long as you want to dominate the material world in your flesh, you will never succeed, because there is a devil that is loosed on earth to hinder you. But God is saying that through His word He has given us exceedingly great and precious promises. And through these promises in the word, we can partake of His divine nature.
However, though you have a divine nature, which is the life of Christ in you, you can’t partake of it until you begin to function in the promises. Come up to the higher ground today and function in the word.
