ALLOWING THE PAST TO PASS (3)

*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*


*ALLOWING THE PAST TO PASS (3)*


*Scripture Treasure.*

2 Timothy 2:4 *No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.*


*Insight and Highlight.*

Lack of self-control, pleasing men rather than pleasing God, can be a major distraction.


*Scripture Commentaries.*

Paul warns Timothy that there is no one who is committed to waging war against satanic oppressions can afford to allow any distractions of any form.

A slight shift from focussing on God can be the opportunity Satan has been waiting for.

There is physical sleep and the spiritual.

Of the physical, Matthew 13:25 says, *"But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.*

A slack in diligent pursuits of living may result in poverty, Prov 6:10.

Of the spiritual slumber, 1 Thess 5: 17 warns us against ceasing in prayer.

Luke 18:1 warns us that men must consider prayer. Men must make it a duty to pray.

Eph 5:14 says, *"Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.*

We must never lack preparation, neither should we slack in execution.

Just because you lost a battle yesterday does not mean you will lose today's.

Do not settle for the disappointments of yesterday.

Remember 1 Cor 9:25 says ,*"And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things...."*

In other words, everyone striving for masteries controls himself in all things, though he is doing this to receive a corruptible crown.

He trains himself hard and with strict discipline. He is not distracted from his main focus, which is the ultimate goal.

If such a person strives for the corruptible, more diligence is expected of we who strive for the incorruptible.

Go ahead. Today is a new day. It is a present.

Your victory is assured.


*Remorse corner.*

How prepared are you for the spiritual warfare of today? Let your preparation find its foundation in the gospel. It is our beginning and final authority.


*Call to Word action.*

Eph 6:15 *And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;*


*The Christian clarion duty.*

Do not lose your focus on Christ.

Your past disappointments must not determine your today.


*Prayer.*

Lord, help me to focus enough in order to strive for spiritual excellence in Jesus name.


Good morning all, and have a blessed day.



God bless you.
