Make No Carnal Choices – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 26th

(Think, See And Live Spiritually)

TO THE BIBLE: Proverbs 16:25 NIV
“There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.”

In Genesis 13:14, God said to Abraham, “…Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—northward, southward, eastward, and westward.” Abraham didn’t look with his physical eyes; that vision would have been very limited.

Rather, he looked in the spirit and saw the whole world, because Romans 4:13 NASB says, “For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would be heir of the world was not through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith.” Think about that!

However, this wasn’t the case with his nephew Lot. When Lot had a similar opportunity, read what the Bible says: “And Lot lifted his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere…” (Genesis 13:10). Lot was carried away by the lushness and plushness of the land, what his physical eyes could see.

Remember, Lot was also a righteous man (2 Peter 2:7-8) but because he didn’t see spiritually, he made wrong choices that messed up his life.

There’re Christians today who made certain choices for which others applauded them, but those choices led or would lead to their destruction. Therefore, I say to you: Don’t make carnal choices. See in the Spirit, with the Spirit, and through the Spirit.

Let the Holy Spirit help you bring God’s dream that’s in your heart to pass. See and live spiritually; that way, everything about your life will have only one clear motive: how to continually bring glory to Jesus Christ!

So, in making life’s choices, let it be with a heart of purity, a heart of righteousness—devoid of fleshly and selfish inclinations.

Dear Lord, all I ever want is to please you, walk in your perfect will, and see your will and purpose established in the earth and in the hearts of men as it is in heaven. Thank you for your glory in my life, and the purity of my heart in serving you, as your Spirit sanctifies me through and through, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
