"But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 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." ESV
As Christians, we are constantly in a battle between what our own desires want and the Holy Spirit's desire that lives within us. Do we recognize the difference between the two? Do we consciously listen to the Holy Spirit and choose to follow Him? If we don't, our human desires will lead us to things that destroy us physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Heavenly Father, we bow humbly before you asking for strength, wisdom, and discernment to follow the leading of Your Holy Spirit. We know then, that we will win each battle and that we will not sin against You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
