1 Corinthians 3:16 (KJV)Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
Franca was facing a lot of attacks that made her weary and almost paranoid. She knew that the enemy of her soul was out to destroy her, but she did not seem to have enough strength to resist the assault against her soul.
One day, as she was reading the Bible, she saw that she had marked 1 Cor 3:16, so she read it again and again. After reading it about seven times, it dawned on her that no one could destroy her because she was the temple of the Lord. This was the word from the Lord that gave her victory over that battle.
You see, God does not play with the temple that He dwells in. Anyone who attempts to destroy His temple will be inviting a battle from God Himself. No one can stand this.
It is important for you to know who God has made you and know the things that have been freely given to you. This is one of the reasons the Holy Spirit was given to you. He facilitates this kind of knowledge (see 1 Corinthians 2:12). This Knowledge activates faith, and it is through faith that we take possession of what we have been given by the Lord.
Go into today remembering that you are the temple of the living God. You are precious in God’s sight, and because of this, no one can destroy you (whether man or demon): No one can destroy your finances, your marriage, your career, your health, your business, etc.
Prayer: thank you Lord for making me your temple. I ask for Strength to keep your temple holy. Amen.
