Day 17 Lend our bodies to God

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Every chapter of the book of Acts is filled with miracles; many people complain that this didn’t happen in the Bible! Well there are many things that God has done that are not in the Bible. Frequently people criticize what they are incapable of producing themselves. They criticize miracles because they can’t produce them and healing because they can’t perform them. Yet, God is so magnificent that He gives us all the opportunity to be used by Him to produce miracles, even when we don’t fully understand them. What do we need to be used by Him? Simply be available. What is the challenge for today? To ignore all criticism and lend our bodies to God, because today as in the past, He continues to work miracles!

Let us pray
Lord Jesus, today I deliver myself from all doubt of Your supernatural power. I abandon all complaining, and choose to lend You my body so that You can keep working miracles among Your children. Lord, use me to be a blessing wherever I go. I thank You, because You transformed one complainer into a doer of Your Word!

BIBLE READINGS
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.
Romans 12:1-2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
1 Timothy 4:8
8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
