Scripture Reading: Galatians 5: 16-17
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Reflection: Sometimes, much as we try, we are unable to do what we really want to do in our Christian walk. This gives us the signal that there is some kind of warfare which goes on in our spirits. The war as revealed by Apostle Paul Is between the flesh (our sinful self) and the Spirit. What the sinful self wants is what the spirit hates and vice versa. This is real war! The way out as echoed powerfully by Apostle Paul is to walk in the Spirit. When we walk in the Spirit , there will be no room to fulfill the desires of the flesh. Walking in the Spirit simply means living the way the Spirit leads. Once you do this, you will not do the evil things your sinful self wants. You would have won the war!!
Prayer: Oh Lord, help me to walk in the Spirit. Let me follow wherever the Spirit leads.
Confession: I walk in the Spirit. I live the way the Spirit leads! There is no room to fulfill the desires of the flesh.
