Day 8 Ruling our own spirit.

He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city. Proverbs 16:32
Many people desire to have authority; they want to be managers and supervisors, or hold positions in government and politics, but they don’t know how to govern themselves. In order to govern at home and over our children, we must first learn to rule our minds and bodies. Before governing the church, we must govern our being. If there are things that are keeping you in bondage and govern you, today Jesus gives you the opportunity to be released from them by repenting for your sins and asking for His forgiveness. He promises that you will be redeemed by Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. We will never truly reign in the spiritual world if we don’t first master our own passions and desires of the flesh. Take authority today, over sickness, illicit sex, fear, depression, anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, the spirit of suicide, fighting, and gossip. Renounce those things that are not of God, and begin to take control of your being. The Lord has given us free will, and authority to subjugate Satan. The only One who can govern our lives is Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

Why fight with God? Why do you oppose to do His will? Do you not know that if you let Him be, He will give hand over territories, government and all else?

Let us pray
Lord Jesus, on this day I ask forgiveness for my sins, for having replaced You with other gods called money, fame, fortune, idolatry or witchcraft. I repent, Lord, to have offended You. I break all bonds, vices and addictions that ruled my life until today. I want to be justified by Your sacrifice on the cross, because now I have the revelation that I can never govern in the spiritual world if I don’t govern my desires and fleshly passions. I surrender to You, Lord Jesus. Save me, cleanse me, free me and use me for Your purpose. Amen.

Proverbs 22:24
Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:
Proverbs 16:32
He who is slow to anger is better than a warrior, and he who controls his temper is greater than one who captures a city.
Proverbs 29.11
“A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.”
