A human 'body' is incapable of functioning independently of the head. The head has; two eyes which gives vision to the body, two ears, which signals sound to the body, two nostrils, which serves as the air passage for the body and one mouth which is the food entrance for the body.
Two of course is the number of agreement and unless the body agrees with the head it cannot function. A body that, is missing the head will be void of vision, incapable of picking up sounds, unable to breathe and ultimately impossible to feed which, in actual sense means total death for the whole body.
Just as the human head is the source of the physical bodily survival, so it is that Christ as our spiritual Head is the source of our soul survival. Christ in us is life indwelling in us and no 'body' without Christ can make a spiritual headway because to be without Christ, is to be void of life therefore dead. Christ as Life itself is the wholesome truth of God revealed. And as the Truth, He is our only Way of having eternal life peace, rest and joy in the kingdom of God.
Whatsoever challenges we face in this world, let us always make it a point of duty to daily yield and completely surrender ourselves in entirety to Christ as our Head. He knows the way forward in every situation. And with Him indwelling in us, we will always make a headway in all dominion realms no matter how blocked the road ahead may seem or appear to be from our natural vision perspectives.
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).
LORD I pray you will keep our eyes continually focused on You and, that you will enable us daily to rise above all the challenges we can possibly come across in this fallen world of sins. I pray LORD that You will protect us daily from all the evil that is in the world and that You will continue to keep us firmly under Your holy and righteousness eternal life governmental power. Father I pray that, You will not allow us to derail or become separated from You.
I pray O LORD, that You will daily empower us to overcome every distractive tactics the enemy can possibility deploy to distract us from fulfilling Your purpose for our lives. I pray LORD that You will guide us daily in all circumstances and situations and enable us to continually stay focused on serving Your purpose for our lives.
Thank You LORD for your finished work of salvation and for Your daily grace. May we never oh LORD take your mercy and grace for granted. Unto You oh LORD Jesus our holy Saviour and righteous Redeemer be all glory and honour now and everlastingly. Amen.
