We all want to live in the blessing of God and experience the great promises of God. We expect to be blessed because we are in Christ and are the seed of Abraham.
Gal 3:29: “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
God swore by himself in Hebrews 6 that He blesses the seed of Abraham, yet so many times our prayers go unanswered. Looking back in my own life I am amazed that I managed to get any prayers answered at all because I did not even know what sin was. Because of the Line we learnt that sin came into the heart. The very place that should only belong to God.
Sin came into the heart in the form of worry and all the other lusts of the flesh mentioned in Galatians 5:19. Because we understood that the heart must be guarded against the above mentioned; guarding the heart became a life style that is truly challenging. In guarding the heart the greatest weapon at our disposal is the blood of Jesus. Christ overcome the work of the sinful nature in man (Satan) by the work of the cross and His blood. Without the blood of Christ and the sprinkling of His blood we cannot have a clear conscience with which to believe.
We should never forget that the original covenant God made with Abraham was a blood covenant to cut the flesh (All male children were to be circumcised on the 8th day). In Abraham’s case it was a physical covenant, in Christ as the seed of Abraham we have to circumcise the heart. In other words, the covenant God has with us is to cut the flesh. We should always be aware that we also have a covenant with God to not live in the flesh but by the spirit.
Rom 8:4: “That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
Rom 8:9: “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit…”
Read 2 Cor 6:16-18.
2 Cor 7:1: “Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
All God’s promises are ours if we partake of the cutting. (Deut 29:12)
Php 3:3: “For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.”
Yes we have great and precious promises that we are blessed but are we really keeping up our side of the covenant to cut away the flesh? I believe that each Christian should make that personal covenant with God to cut the flesh so that He can bless us as He blessed Abraham. Of course we cannot deal with the flesh by ourselves but in Christ we are well able.
We do this because we love the Lord our God with all our heart and all our soul.
