*RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL *THE INWARD MAN: THE REAL YOU .* Monday, May 20th . Pastor Chris _*But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price (1 Peter 3:4).*_ In 2 Corinthians 4:16, Paul clearly distinguishes between the outward man and the inward man when he said, _*“For which cause we faint not; but though our OUTWARD MAN perish, yet the INWARD MAN is renewed day by day.”*_ The one Peter calls the “hidden man of the heart” in our opening verse is the same the Apostle Paul calls the “inward man.” The outward man is the physical body and its five senses of sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste. These senses are man’s medium for relating with his environment. The human body can only receive in formation from this world through its five senses. The inward man, however, is the human spirit and his soul; the seat of his mind, will, and emotions. The “inward man” is the real you. He’s not seen with the natural eyes, because he’s the “man within the man”; the real person living in the physical body. That’s the one who receives Christ’s salvation and relates with God. When you believed and confessed the Lordship of Jesus, it wasn’t your body (the outward man) who was reborn; it was your inward man—your human spirit. When you speak, it’s the inward man that talks through your mouth; he’s the one expressing himself through your physical body. That’s why it’s so important that a man is born again. Being born again is the recreation of the inward man—the human spirit—to become God’s dwelling place; His holy tabernacle. Too many are more concerned about what’s going on in their bodies, the outward man, not realizing that they’re indeed spirit beings. The premium should be on training and educating your inward man because that’s the person and character of your being. The Bible says, _*“The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly”*_ (Proverbs 20:27). The Lord relates with your spirit in leading and guiding you; He contacts you through your spirit, the inward man. Therefore, practise the exercise of educating your spirit, the inward man, with the Word. We’ll discuss this further in our next study. *CONFESSION* *I refuse to live by the dictates of the flesh; I’m totally submissive to the lordship of the Word and yielded to the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit. I live the transcendent life of glory inherent in my spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.* *FURTHER STUDY:* *||* *2 Corinthians 4:16* For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is renewed day by day. *||* *||* *Job 32:8* But [there is] a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. *||* *||* *Ephesians 3:16* That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; *||* *DAILY SCRIPTURE READING* *1-Year Bible Reading Plan=>* John 8:48-59 & 2 Kings 1-3 *2-Year Bible Reading Plan=>* John 9:1-41 & 2 Kings 4-5 #cekano #nnwz2

Prayer at 12noon and 10pm (Local/GMT) - Mon May 20 In today's Rhapsody we're admonished to focus on developing the inward man through the Word. Learn more as you study the article, and share it with others too. 1 Timothy 2:8 says, "I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting". At 12noon and 10pm (Local/GMT), we'll pray in tongues of the Spirit for most of 15min, and also for the spread of the gospel in nations where the light of the Word is dim; that the gospel will penetrate the cities, nooks and crannies of these regions, and the Word of the Lord glorified. Amen. The 'Pastor Chris Live' Pray-A-Thon comes up shortly, in the month of June - our 'month of prayer'. We'll be making power available for change around the world in prayer, 24hrs a day for 30days. God bless you.
*RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL* *WE LIVE IN THE SPIRIT .* Wednesday, May 15th . Pastor Chris _*If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit (Galatians 5:25).*_ As Christians, we don’t go in and out of the Spirit; we live in the Spirit. There’re two expressions for being in the Spirit: one is to be in a trance or in a vision. In that sense, your physical senses are more or less suspended, and that’s a temporal experience. The other and more important expression of being in the Spirit is being born into the Spirit. This is when you become aware and alive to the spirit-realm through the Word and the Holy Ghost, and live in that consciousness even though you’re in this world and your physical senses are conscious of your natural environment. Howbeit, you’re living with the mindset and consciousness of the heavenly being that you are. You see the same things with other people, but you have a different interpretation and a different understanding. Our theme scripture admonishes that if we live in the Spirit, we should also walk in the Spirit. In other words, since you’re born into the realm of the Spirit, since you live in the Spirit, act accordingly. Act with the consciousness that you’re in the Spirit and let that consciousness dictate your physical condition. For example, when the children of Israel left Egypt, the Bible tells us that they carried their own atmosphere with them: _*“And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night”*_ (Exodus 13:21). They had the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. The biting cold at night, and scorching heat by day, didn’t affect them because they were in the Holy Ghost atmosphere. Today, we live in the same Holy Ghost atmosphere, in Christ. The Holy Ghost lives in you, and you carry Him everywhere. Therefore, you have His atmosphere, which makes you different. That’s why you can come into a place, where everybody is sad and depressed, and things change; because you came in with the atmosphere of joy. People are under the spell of darkness and failure, and you come in there with brightness and victory, because you’re the light of the world. Hallelujah! Dominate your environment with the atmosphere of the Spirit. Walk in the Spirit, for that’s the realm from which, and into which, you’re born of God. *PRAYER* *Thank you precious Holy Spirit for being my peculiar atmosphere and advantage in life; you’ve made my life very different and beautiful. I rule and dominate my world with the atmosphere of joy, peace, success and victory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.* *FURTHER STUDY:* *||* *Acts 1:8* But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. *||* *||* *Romans 8:9* But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. *||* *||* *Galatians 5:16* [This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. *||* *DAILY SCRIPTURE READING* *1-Year Bible Reading Plan=>* John 7:1-24 & 1 Kings 15-17 *2-Year Bible Reading Plan=>* Mark 10:23-31 & Numbers 18 #cekano #nnwz2
