And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross (Philippians 2:8).
God has His structures and systems and operates by principles, but there’re those who always choose their own way. The Bible says there’s a way that seems right to a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death (Proverbs 14:12). It pays to listen to God and follow His ways. Never walk in disobedience.
For example, as a result of Adam’s disobedience, the Bible tells us “Death ruled like a king …” (Romans 5:17 CEV). The Amplified Classic translation puts it this way: “…because of one man’s trespass(lapse, offence) death reigned through that one….” Well then, as one man’s disobedience led to condemnation for all men, so also did Christ’s act of righteousness lead to eternal life and divine acquittal of all men. Jesus, the second and last Adam, did this by obedience.
We also read in our opening verse that He “… being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” Remember that Jesus is Himself God, but nothing was going to make Him rebellious against the Father. He was going to be obedient unto death, even the death of the Cross. God had to respond to the obedience of Jesus: “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name” (Philippians 2:9). He was given the highest title that could be conferred, because of His obedience. Glory to God!
Obedience is a great blessing in the realm of the Spirit. Being born again, you have an obedient spirit; the Bible calls us obedient children (1 Peter 1:14). So, it’s natural for you to walk in the light of God’s Word, and be completely yielded to spiritual instructions.
My life is consecrated to you, dear Father; thank you for your love for me, and for your glory in my life! Today and always, I live to glorify you, serving you with wholehearted devotion, keeping your Word, fulfilling your purpose for my life, and producing works of righteousness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
1 Peter 1:13-14 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 1:14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

I rule, reign and dominate my world today by the faith of God in my spirit! My faith is alive and producing results because the Word of God is in my heart and in my mouth. As I speak forth, circumstances align with God’s perfect will for my life. I’ve been brought out of spiritual death into life, where I reign in health and prosperity by grace in righteousness. The law of the Spirit of life is working in me; therefore, everything about me receives life! There is no death in any area of my life or in my body. I am living the good life God has planned ahead of time for me to live: a life of divine health, success and victory.

Pray-A-Thon 2021 – Mon Aug 23
In this Monday’s Rhapsody, we’re reminded of the power of obedience. Study it and spread the Word.
Psalms 113:1-4 says, ’Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD. Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and forevermore. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, the LORD’s name is to be praised. The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heaven’s. Psalms 117 says, ’O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth forever. Praise ye the LORD’.
At our prayer times today, we’ll pray fervidly in tongues of the Spirit, give praise to God in these psalms, and declare the spread of the gospel in all nations and territories of the world.
Your Loveworld ’Praise-A-Thon’ begins today Mon 23rd to Fri 27th. Pastor Benny Hinn would be ministering along with other ministers of the gospel including Bishop James Payne, Dr. Richard Roberts, Evang. John Avanzini, Dr. Mike Smalley and Bishop Clarence McClendon. Watch live on all Loveworld Networks Daily (2pm and 8pm EST)/ (7pm and 1am GMT+1).
God bless you.
I’m alive to God, awakened to the realities of the Kingdom! He’s real to me, in me, and through me! I hear and know His voice; I know His thoughts, His will, and walk-in His divine destiny for me. I live and function in the Kingdom of light, with authority over Satan and the cohorts of darkness. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper. I live in the victory and authority of Jesus Christ, and my faith is a weapon of defence against the fiery darts of the wicked; an instrument of victory over and against the adversary and adversities. I live triumphantly in Christ, every day. Hallelujah!
#AffirmationTrain 23RD AUGUST.
I affirm that I am a success for Jesus! I’m imbued with divine wisdom to bless and impact my world. The Spirit of God has moved me into the realms of divine prosperity, increase, promotions, and success. I am renewed, refreshed, and well-positioned for the glorious life in Christ. I’ve overcome the world, the devil, and the forces of hell because I am a product of the incorruptible Word of God, which lives and abides forever. I am seated with Christ in the heavenly realms—a place of authority, victory, safety, and deliverance—far removed from all earthly distractions. Hallelujah!
God has given unto me the hidden treasures of the earth! Even now, the lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; for I have a goodly heritage! I am heaping up success upon success; making progress and moving forward consistently by the power of the Holy Spirit! I walk in the dominion of the Spirit, for I’ve been granted authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and overall the ability of the devil! It’s my heritage to do bigger things, for I’ve been brought into a place of excellence, success, victory, and abundance. I am empowered and inspired by the Word to think the right thoughts, speak the right words, and receive the results of the Word in my life today. I’m living an exceptionally great life, dominating circumstances and living the transcendent life God had prepared ahead of time. Glory to God. Hallelujah!

#TalkingSession 23RD AUGUST – KINDLY SAY THESE WORDS OUT LOUD.
Dear Father, Your Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path! I do not function with the wisdom of this world, for Christ is made unto me, wisdom. My heart is open to receive the instructions in Your Word, propelling me in the direction of Your will and purpose for my life. I’ve received grace to reign and rule in life as a king. Therefore, I exercise dominion over circumstances. I manifest the glory of God and I declare prosperity, health, progress, glory, divine favours, and peace for me and my loved ones. The Word of God prevails and produces results in me today and always.
I thank You for the faith that Your Word bolsters in me even now! Armed with the Word in my heart, and in my mouth, I surmount challenges, change situations, work miracles, and consistently walk in victory. Fear has no place in me; for God hasn’t given me a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind! The Lord is my help and my ability. He’s my strength and my sufficiency; therefore, I can do all things by His power that works in me mightily. I am effective and effectual in the communication and expression of my faith. Thank You for guiding me in the path of Your perfect will for my life through the guidance from Your Word, and the Holy Spirit. I express Your goodness, righteousness, love, glory, and joy, filling my world with the aroma of Your glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
