A parasite is an organism that grows, feeds, and is sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of its host. This year is the year of letting go. I'll be constantly adverting back to this statement. I wanna briefly talk about personal parasites. These are things that we have allowed to attach itself to our lives but don't mean us any good. This is the part of us that wants what God doesn't want. We are in a war against our spirit man and our fleshly nature. I wanna name a few parasites. Let's see if we can identify at least one of the following parasites in our life.
A few parasites:Sexual Unfaithfulness, not being pure, taking part in sexual sin, worshiping other gods, witchcraft, hatred, making trouble, jealousy, anger, selfishness, causing division, lust, seducing spirits, making people angry with each other, envy, drunkeness, having wild and wasteful parties, gossip, and doing other things like these. You can never get rid of your parasites until you hate having them. As long as you love your "parasites" we'll continually allow them to sap us spiritually while we receive no spiritual benefit from it.....only fleshly benefit which won't last and leads to spiritual death.
It is very important that we work on killing these parasites one by one. The only way we can do this is to apply Romans 12 into our life.It says: "I beg you to offer your lives as a living sacrifice to God. Your offering must be only for God and pleasing to him, which is the spiritual way for you to worship. Do not change yourselves to be like the people of the world, but be changed within by a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to decide what God wants for you; you will know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect." (We can't make the right decisions with the old mind. Our judgment is off)
Our challenge for today is to let go of our will and surrender our day to God. Surrender and "Let Go" of one of your spirit killers today and make a choice and desire to please God as soon as you read this blog. Part of the challenge is to also sacrifice something that we regularly put before God and give God that time by praying and getting in His word. You don't have to read the whole bible. Just something that applies to your "parasite" and will build you up spiritually. For example, if you struggle with unforgiveness, find a scripture that deals with that subject. Read the scripture or story, get it in your spirit, and then pray about your unforgivness and give it to Jesus. You must sacrifice some of your TV time, internet time, telephone time, or whatever you put before God. (20 minutes or longer)
Today's challenge is an important step in the letting go process and it should be done daily. We're letting go together......taking it one step and one day at a time. Let's do it you'll. Talk to me and share your comments on how your life is changing in the letting go process.
Can't wait to hear from you,
