Spirit vs Flesh
In the flesh, certain things just doesn't make sense. However, if the Holy Spirit tells you to do something. Do it. It may not make sense to you at first but once you do it. Eventually, it will make sense.
Earlier, this week something occurred in my world. That did not make any sense at all....but I followed the Holy Spirit on what I was to do. Thankfully, I listened and obeyed b/c I found out something that was life threatening for not only me but others, as well. The scenario made no sense at all but instead of listening to my fleshy spirit - which said don't worry about that. Keep doing what you are doing. Well, I am very thankful I didn't have a stubborn heart on that day and I obeyed the Holy spirit!
If I were to have been stubborn...who knows what would have happened a month from now. It was something that could have turned into a very serious matter, if it were to get out of control and I had not been aware. It would have been a life or death type situation.
Following the Holy Spirit and that of our Flesh - is a life or death situation.
Some people have made decisions of the flesh, which have cost them their lives. They may be alive physically but walking around dead in the inside b/c of sin, addictions, bitterness or unforgiveness in their hearts. Don't let that be you! Don't let your flesh rule your life. Take control! Be Free!
Follow the Holy Spirit! It is a life or death situation! Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control are all fruits of the Holy Spirit. Those that are led by the Holy Spirit are FREE in Christ Jesus and inherit the Kingdom of God!
Following the Holy Spirit, doesn't always make sense but it's always the right thing to do! In Jeremiah 29:11 the Lord says: For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
"So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other..." Galatians 5:16-17 NLT
Be FREE and follow the Holy Spirit and all things will work together for the GOOD for you! Following the Holy Spirit, signifies your trust and love in God!
