KENNETH COPELAND 2023 DEVOTIONAL WAS WRITTEN BY KENNETH COPELAND MINISTRIES
Kenneth Copeland Devotional, 3rd October 2023
TOPIC: Avoid Big Failures
BIBLE TEXT: This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness. Ephesians 4:17-19
SCRIPTURE READING: Ephesians 4:22-31
There’s a subtle strategy Satan uses to take control of our lives. The Bible calls it lasciviousness and it means “to have no restraint.”
Lasciviousness has been preached as being extreme immorality, but it doesn’t start out that way. It begins with just a few seemingly innocent thoughts. Then those thoughts grow and grow until they begin to produce serious sin.
One afternoon as a 9-year-old boy, for example, I just yielded to the desire to curse. I knew better, but I did it anyway. I had a relative who was so good at West Texas cussin’ that I thought he invented it. I was impressed and I wanted to try it.
When I let go of all restraint and began to say those curse words, something evil moved in on my thinking that seriously affected me for some 20 years. A law was set in motion. As a result, my flesh gradually became boss over my entire being.
Don’t let Satan use the strategy of lasciviousness on you. Make up your mind and heart today to obey God in the little things. Avoid big failures by walking in His Spirit one small step at a time. Major victories will eventually be yours.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and cleanse me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised me.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH.
