Matthew 26:41
"Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak." (NIV)
"Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." (KJV)

We all have good and noble intentions. The problem is that intentions are seldom accompanied by constant awareness, prayer, and action. Intentions have no power. Our power to overcome and accomplish is made real through the Holy Spirit by prayer and being on guard against the enemy. We need commitment rather than intentions to allow the Lord to give our spirit the power to overcome our weaknesses.

Heavenly Father, search our hearts and help us recognize the intentions within us that sit dormant and useless. Pour out Your Spirit in our hearts so that we will commit ourselves to doing Your will instead of intending to do it. Forgive us for our spiritual laziness and make us more like our Lord. We pray in His name, Amen.
