“Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of the false circumcision; for we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh” (Philippians 3:2-3)
This world has all kinds of ideas that are promoted. Do this, go there, feel this, and so on. What we see here, is that the truth boils down to worshiping the Lord in spirit and truth. He has created you for relationship and it is for this that we should live. Do not trust the flesh. Let me repeat, do not trust the flesh. The flesh will disappoint and betray you. The Lord will not.
Lord, help me to see that in You is all hope and a glorious future. My body will fail and end up in the grave. Guide me Lord by Your goodness so that I may now and always be led by You alone. You alone know all that is needed. Therefore, it must be You alone who leads me. Open my ears to hear the lies that are spoken in this world and then to avoid them. Open my eyes to see the truth and follow the truth only.
Lord Jesus, You came to save me and I need saving. I need to be saved from all of the lies around me. I need to be saved from the tempting of the flesh. I need to be saved from myself. Guide me, Lord, so that I would look to You alone as my help. Guide me in the way of life in order that I would abide in You and You in me. May I look to You this day and avoid the lies of this world! Amen.
