“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, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions.”
Galatians 5:16-17 NLT
This is one of the struggles that we must deal with as believers. Sometimes they are small desires of the flesh and sometimes they are larger. The flesh is under the construction of the Holy Spirit as He cleans the ugliness out of our hearts. This is why I pray for willing and teachable spirits. Our hearts must be in the posture of humility in order for the Holy Spirit to rid us of the things that are not of His nature. He is making us into His likeness. He is doing supernatural work within our hearts. He has already overcome and won the war for us. We just need to have open hands and open hearts as He transforms us.
May you be aware of His presence and be blessed with clarity and His infinite wisdom!
1 Timothy 4:12
