40 Days of Focus: Day 19
Day 19: The Accuser
Reflect On: Matthew 26:36-46
“The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak”
Scripture refers to Satan as the “Accuser of the Brethren” and he lives up to that title. When we are weak in the flesh, Satan is quick to point fingers and deride us for our struggles. Like a childish bully, Satan tempts us then teases us when we fail inhales that we will forget our true identity in Christ and the victory we have over Him through the precious blood of Jesus.
When you endeavor to learn the spiritual disciplines of fasting and prayer, know that the spirit goes before the flesh. Eventually the flesh will catch up to the Spirit of God in you, but it might take some time and faithful practice. Do not let Satan discourage you as you grow. Learning a new spiritual discipline can e like learning to solar skate. You are going to fall occasionally, but you will have some successes as well. Celebrate the willing spirit in you and the moments of growth you experience. Ignore the voice of the accuser, your adversary. Remember that it is not the discipline that makes you complete, but it is Christ in you the hope of glory! The work is complete in Christ. Keep fasting and praying and let who you already are shine through!
What is a Faith Promise? Glad you asked!
Just as a missionary is called to the mission field so also are those who partner with them through regular prayers and gifts. A Faith Promise is the amount of money a ministry partner promises to give to a ministry out of obedience to the leading of Holy Spirit. It is an amount of money missionaries can count on each month from a specific ministry partner. Missionaries like us cannot step onto the mission field of their calling without the faith promises of God’s people who partner to send them. Missionaries cannot go without being sent!
