All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power. Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
I Corinthians 6:12-20
All things are lawful but the question to each of us is it expedient to the expected end of God’s promises for our lives. We must learn that God is not the God of don’ts but instead a God of dos. It is God who sets us free to flow with Him and His Spirit, the wind, and live. Catch The Wind of God and focus on His plan and execute it and in so doing it is necessary for us to exercise the Power Of Staying Connected to Him. The more we are connected to God, we embody the power to flow with God and HIs purpose and thus, we are influenced and encouraged by what it is God wants us to do as oppose to what it is we cannot do. Exercising discipline in our lives is a direct result fo flowing with God so that we act based upon His leading and guiding as well as focused on His higher calling for our lives. Our connection with God does by no means eliminate the desires and longings of our flesh but it is the power of God as we Catch The Wind that empowers us from within to exercise restraint over our flesh and lusts. We must act on God’s will but to do so responsibly, with disciple and restraint, for God has chosen us and prepared and made ready the fulfillment of His promises just for us, we are exceptional because of God’s choosing us, we have been bought with a price. As you exercise your exceptionalism, your holiness, your chosen-ness for and by God, you manifest God’s Word, making His Word flesh, real in your life.
