Our flesh is much stronger than we think. When we get a cut, it heals. It keeps us warm and cool. It can do a lot of good things physically. However, spiritually it is bad. Your flesh wants to keep you from anything Godly. It wants to entice you, distract you, and pull you away from anything that will feed your spirit.
The war between your flesh and your spirit has been waging since Adam. Ultimately, Adam allowed his flesh to overcome him. So, how do I let my spirit win you ask?
* Feed it God’s Word
* Grow in your prayer time.
* Faithfully attending church
* Fasting, (weakens the flesh)
Feed your spirit! Don’t be like Adam and let your flesh win. We are still reaping those consequences. Allow your spirit to grow stronger and stronger everyday. Beat the flesh by not allowing your circumstances to overcome you. I know life is hard, but with a strong firm foundation in your spirit you will overcome. Let your spirit win! Xoxo
“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.”
