MAY. 6

Genesis 39:10-12
And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her. And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within. And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

Author PhotoIn Christ, you and I have received the grace to control what our souls desire. We must refuse to allow the things of this world to trap and corrupt our souls. The Bible says that fleshly lusts war against our souls, 1Pet.2:11. They are out to trap and destroy our souls. Only the things of God can liberate and bless our souls. Be alert and strong in the Lord, especially in your trying times. Let the joy of the Lord be your strength. Joseph was a slave in a foreign land but that did not stop him from guarding his soul and destiny and fleeing away from the evil pleasure that Potiphar's wife attempted to sabotage his life and destiny with. Esau was deceived into selling his birthright during a low moment of his life, Gen.25:29-32. The cares of this life and the deceitfulness of righteousness will not trap and weight you down.

The devil's attack will be persistent, but our resolve and commitment to God must be resilient. Keep submitting to God and keep resisting the devil, James 4:7. The devil will SURELY flee from you. It's not enough to love righteousness; we are also to HATE iniquity with a passion (Heb.1:9) and to flee from it. Flee fornication (1Cor.6:18), flee idolatory (1Cor.10:14) and flee youthful lusts (2Tim.2:22). In 1Timothy 6:10-12, the Bible says flee from the trap and deceit of the love of money and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love patience and meekness. It also says fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life. Because of Christ, both the grace to flee from sin and evil and the grace to run towards God and His ways is upon you.

PRAYER FOCUS: Declare in faith that you love righteousness and hate iniquity. Declare in faith that because of your love for God, you run away from sin and run towards God and His righteousness.
