Morning Prayer, Friday, December 13, 2019 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: MY SPIRIT AND FLESH
Father God, please help me to win the battle between my Spirit and flesh. Amen
“For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.” Galatians 5:17
“I declare today that the flesh is strong but God's Spirit in me is stronger.” The world can sometimes be a noisy place. So caught up in keeping up, we all too often lose sight of which direction we should be going. There are so many distractions that can pull at our hearts. You can't have them all and yet we can be found guilty of doing just that. Telling your flesh or your credit card or that job you so desperately want, "No," is just not as easy as it sounds. In fact, the Bible does tell us that the Spirit and the flesh wars with one another. It takes wisdom to turn down or turn away from the thing that you are so sure is right for you. Whether it is the job that is offering an insane amount of money, or that individual that causes your heart to go pitter patter, every time you see them, takes a little bit of wisdom and a whole lot of Spirit. You want to say "No." You know you should say, "No," but "Yes," is putting up a fight. My prayer is "God please help me to be wise in whatever choices I make in this war." I am not sure about pleasing my flesh and what it wants and desires. As I grow older and wiser, I realize that there are somethings that are not meant for me or not good for me. Those things Lord, I don't want.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
