Daily Prayer for January 14th, 2019  

Good morning, God‚ÄĒthank You! ūüôā

Indeed, I ‚Äúhave died to the law of sin through the body of Christ,‚ÄĚ and now I am filled with Your Spirit (the Holy Spirit.) Hallelujah!!
Now, I must live in the Spirit and bear good fruit for You, as You write the new law on my heart. Your seed abides in me; therefore I cannot keep on sinning or live according to the flesh. Holy Spirit, because I am full of Your love, I want to live right by You!
Let me never fall back into fear, but cry Abba! Father! In Jesus name. Amen

Romans 7:4 English Standard Version (ESV)

4 Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.

Hebrews 10:26 English Standard Version (ESV)

26 For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,

James 4:17 English Standard Version (ESV)

17 So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

1 John 3:9 English Standard Version (ESV)

9¬†No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s¬†seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God.

Jeremiah 31:33 English Standard Version (ESV)

33 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Romans 8 English Standard Version (ESV)

Life in the Spirit

8¬†There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.¬†2¬†For the law of¬†the Spirit of life¬†has set you¬†free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.¬†3¬†For¬†God has done what the law,¬†weakened by the flesh,¬†could not do.¬†By sending his own Son¬†in the likeness of sinful flesh and¬†for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,¬†4¬†in order that¬†the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us,¬†who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.¬†5¬†For¬†those who live according to the flesh set their minds on¬†the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on¬†the things of the Spirit.¬†6¬†For to set¬†the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.¬†7¬†For the mind that is set on the flesh is¬†hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law;¬†indeed, it cannot.¬†8¬†Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

9 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact, the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. 10 But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

Heirs with Christ

12¬†So then, brothers, we are debtors,¬†not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.¬†13¬†For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you¬†put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.¬†14¬†For all who are¬†led by the Spirit of God are¬†sons of God.¬†15¬†For¬†you did not receive¬†the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of¬†adoption as sons, by whom we cry,¬†‚ÄúAbba! Father!‚Ä̬†16¬†The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,17¬†and if children, then¬†heirs‚ÄĒheirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ,¬†provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
