As a man privileged by grace to lead and pastor a generation of young people, I am on a daily basis faced with confrontations from their so called weaknesses, struggles, challenges, they are saved, they love God but yet these struggles are always finding them out, some of us ministers have some of these struggles too, it appears as if the word is not true, is it that we can’t live above the flesh?
We have called sin weakness, flaws, if a young guy or lady has immorality issues, he/she will come and say my weakness is sexual urges, i can’t help myself, I have emotional rush etc, I know they love God, I know they are tongue talking but it seems as if our tongues can’t even address this issue.
I was privileged to be in a place where we asked my father Pastor E.A Adeboye about some of these things we call struggles, He said it is easier to be consistent than to be inconsistent, apparently he has been consistent by God’s help, don’t get it twisted, it is not everyone that is rising and falling and repenting regularly ooo, then I knew there is a problem somewhere, then I began to pray and ask the Lord to show me the secret, i know it is possible that a man put to death the deeds of the flesh.
I prayed and cried to the Lord to reveal to me, I don’t just want to preach it, I want to also live it.
I cried with tears in my eyes and then suddenly I heard the Lord say to me, the Secret has always been there: WALK IN THE SPIRIT AND YOU WILL NOT FULFILL THE LUST OF THE FLESH Galatians 5:16
I stopped praying, I knew God just spoke to me, it came so clear, you see He quoted the scripture to me, thank God I am familiar with that scripture, sometimes we can’t hear God because we are far from our bibles.
This is just the secret, I knew what to do next, I now know the answer to give to a generation of young people that depends on me for answers.
I also asked Him, sir how do one walk in the Spirit and He replied me with two scriptures.
I will continue tomorrow on HOW TO WALK IN THE SPIRIT
I see a burning generation
