Ephesians 4:22 (AMP) Strip yourselves of your former nature which characterized your previous manner of life and becomes corrupt through lusts and desires that spring from delusion
When you believed in the Lord Jesus, so much power and spiritual authority became available to you (see John 1:12). You now have the power to strip off your former nature of sin. The power to do this cannot be understood by the unbeliever because it is only available to those who believe (see Eph 1:19-20). The unbeliever may have the power for external transformation, but not the power for true transformation from the heart. The power for true transformation is only available to them that believe.
One very popular deception of the devil is to make a believer think that he does not have this power and is still a slave to sin. If a Christian agrees with the devil, he will indeed be continually held bound by the power of sin. But if a Christian knows that he is now free from sin, and has the power to strip off the old nature and walk in his new righteous nature, he will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord and please Him in all respects (see Eph 1:17-18).
Go into today knowing that all power in heaven and on earth has been given to Christ. You have access to this power because you are now a member of His body (see 1 Cor 12:27).
Prayer: thank the Lord for saving you and giving you His mighty power
Ask Him to help you walk in His power in every aspect of life.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
