The Light Daily Devotional – Winning your Secret Battles
Caption: Winning your Secret Battles
KEY WORD FOR TODAY
Spiritual battles are won more in secret than in public. The battle you did not win in the heart you cannot win in the physical.
Scriptural Reference: “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.” (Daniel 1:8 NKJV)
Every act of obedience or disobedience to God begins from the heart. A man will only stand against the devil and his agents if he has succeeded in obeying God in the secret to work and walk according to His will. Your praying and every spiritual activity will be fruitless exercise if you fail to win your secret battles.
The place of our battle with the devil is not on the pulpit or various prayer mountains but our hearts. Daniel won the battle of lust(king’s food) in his heart before he was ten times better. He was better both before men and God because he won the battle in secret.
Several men who drag the name of the Lord in the mud did that because they lost their secrets battles. A man does not just wake up and start misbehaving; such a man has failed in the secret. The degree of how much you will please the Lord with your life depends on how much you submit yourself to God in the secret; making no provisions for the works of the flesh.
There is no other way to win your secret battles order than submitting yourself to God by denying yourself, talking up your cross daily and following Jesus Christ in his steps (Luke 9:23).
Question For Meditation: Do you obey God in your heart? Is your records clean before God?
Prayer Point: Lord! I want to be like Jesus inner my heart; in Jesus name. Amen!
Main Emphasis: The only way to be who God wants you to be is to win your secret battle!
