TREM’s Daily Devotional Wednesday 28 June 2017 by Dr. Mike Okonkwo


Topic: Live By Faith, Not By Your Senses [June 28, 2017]

“Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.” Hebrew 10:38.
   
We are in an age where people are using their senses. We are in an age where the mind power is very strong. And it is sad that people are using the same mindset to serve God. When you serve God with your senses, you are positioning yourself for serious trouble because you cannot serve God with your senses. The bible says without faith it is impossible to please God. You cannot go too far in your Christian walk outside faith. Children of God shouldn’t serve God with their senses because the natural man does not understand the things of the spirit because they are foolishness to him. He cannot know them because they are spiritually discerned.

When you walk with your senses you begin to walk in the realm of the flesh. You cannot serve God with your senses that’s why the bible says the just shall live by faith, not by their senses. It also says those who are of the flesh do mind the things of the flesh. And  those who are of the spirit mind the things of the spirit.  A lot of us believers are allowing the cares of life and the deceitfulness of riches and all the challenges around us to determine how far we can go with God. You are serving God with senses.

In 2 Timothy 3:1, Paul told Timothy to know and  be acquainted with the truth about the last days. It is a time you cannot understand and a time difficult to live in. Incidentally the time is right on us. We are living in a time that is difficult to survive in. He said men shall be lovers of their own selves. They want their comfort. If it is difficult, then they will bail out. If the things that use to excite you concerning the things of God no more excite you, you are already backsliding. David said I was glad when they say let us go to the house of the Lord. But today some believers are unhappy to go to the house of the Lord.
