You prove God’s will by submitting your body. In proving God’s will in life issues, the body is presented and the mind is renewed. When David sinned, he was supposed to be on the battle field– that was God’s will – but he stayed at home until he was tempted through the body and he committed adultery with the woman, which led to murder. David could have proven the will of God; instead, he obeyed the body and stayed at home.
When we obey the body, we obey the devil because the devil will find rest in the negative desires of the flesh. The Holy Spirit wakes you up in the night to pray; you pray only for some minutes and sleep off. Then the devil comes because you did not present the body at that time to God. Presenting the body means yielding the body to the demands of the Spirit of God and the demands of the Word of God. The more you do the presentation, the clearer the will of God becomes to you. You will move from what is good to the acceptable and perfect will of God.
Some people move in life without discovering the perfect will of God for their lives. They just do the things that are easy to the flesh and mind. The fact that something is easy doesn’t mean it is the will of God for you. That the situation you are in is pleasant does not mean you are in the will of God. That you are having problems does not mean you are not in the will of God. Everybody who flows into the will of God will face one demonic opposition or the other because the devil’s goal is for us not to get into the will of God.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive grace to always submit my will to the will of God and to present my body to God’s will always in Jesus name. Amen!
