This morning on Rich Thoughts For Breakfast I referred to 1 Corinthians 12:22 without quoting it. After the call. . .that verse kept stirring in my spirit.

I vividly remember the first time I heard 1 Corinthians 12:22 in the New Living Translation. I immediately knew it was a verse that should be taught and/or quoted on a regular basis.

I knew God would use this verse to touch and change people’s lives who feel they are weaker or less important to Him as others.

The entire verse of 1 Corinthians 12:22 in the New Living Translation says:

“In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary.”

As I was re-reading that verse God immediately gave me seven reasons why you and every other believer are strong, important and necessary to the Body of Christ.

Before getting to the seven reasons you are necessary I want to share 1 Corinthians 12:22 in two other translations.

First, the Contemporary English Version of 1 Corinthians 12:22, says:

"In fact, we cannot get along without the parts of the body that seem to be the weakest."

Second, the New International Reader’s Version of 1 Corinthians 12:22, says:

Several days ago during a Rich Thoughts For Breakfast call. . .we posed a question.

Here it is.

If it’s God’s will to give us the kingdom, then why are so many people struggling?

During the call we taught five hindrances to your surplus of prosperity.

Fear. . .of the unknown. Fear of failure.

Doubt. . .that God will do what He says He will do in His word.

Anxiety. . .over the current economic and political landscape.

Hesitation. . .to give what God says to give because of our perceived limitations and lack.

Disbelief. . .over whether everything promised in the Bible applies to “me.”

Notice the progression of the five hindrances. . .one builds upon the next one.

Today, I was going to teach in depth on the five tricks of the devil. However, I received a clear word to teach on them individually

I was further directed to teach them as He directed and when He directed.

Tonight, I felt directed that we should teach first on fear.

As we said recently and taught for years. . .Fear is the devil’s anointing.

We want you to write in the following statement where you can see it…remember it…believe it…confess it…until it’s manifested in your life.

“Fear is the devil’s anointing but I rebuke it because it has no place in my life.”Make no mistake about it. . .the enemy will continually try to bring fear into your mental thought process.

Have you ever known anyone who was a prisoner of war?
