Make not provision for the flesh 2

Romans 13:13-14 (NET) Let us live decently as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in discord and jealousy. Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to arouse its desires.

After Gabriel recovered spiritually, he was now more careful with the places he went to and the people he spent time with. He realized that putting on Jesus was a repellent to the wrong people. Everyone that came in contact with him now heard about Jesus; they heard the praise of Jesus and thanksgiving to God in His name; and knew that Gabriel was under the authority of the Lord Jesus.

Gabriel now had a simple rule: everywhere he knew that the Lord would not be in, he avoided such places. He avoided watching movies and having conversations he knew the Lord could not partake in.

It is impossible to put on a potent perfume and it would not be noticed by those who come close to you. It is impossible to put on the Lord Jesus and He will not be noticed by those who come close to you. The power of God answers to those whose nature has been transformed through their interaction with Jesus. Believers who still live like unbelievers would not know the power and glory of sonship (see 2 Corinthians 6:17-18), but will easily fall prey to seducing spirits.

Go into today remembering to put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh. Every time we make provision for the flesh, we put off the Lord Jesus to do that.

Prayer: Father, help me live a life permeated by the presence of the Lord Jesus. Deliver me from the power of the flesh, In Jesus' name. Amen
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
