Do you remember the song…”Whip Appeal” by Babyface? Yes, I am dating myself. However, I was thinking about it tonight while I was mediating on my scriptures for the day Joshua 5:2, Romans 2:29 and Colossians 2:11 all in which talk about circumcision first of the body and then the subconscious mind otherwise known as our hearts.
If you can follow my train of thinking the Word of God has “Whip Appeal”. Once you begin to really dig your heels into it, it whips everything that does not line up to it right out of you! You begin to desire it more and after awhile don’t mind that it is whipping the fleshy things right on out.
In truth true freedom begins first in your mind. Once your mind is renewed… the flesh has no other choice but to submit.
