Good morning people who shift your focus from your struggle to your Saviour
Galatians 5:16-18 NIV So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
Again, we need to understand the strong current and persuasive pull of the world when it comes to the inappropriate desires that come externally to our flesh (our body).
But we all have the power in Christ Jesus to walk in submission and obedience to the Holy Spirit, and by doing so, refuse to let the flesh rule!
The best way to not gratify the wrong desires that come to our flesh, is to focus on and pursue walking by the Spirit.
My Dad has often said, “To get darkness out of a room, you turn the light on; you don’t try and chase the darkness out of the room.”
So, today, it’s all about shifting the focus. It’s time to shift the focus from the flesh to the Spirit, and from the struggle to the Saviour! It’s time to lift up our eyes, from ourselves, to the Lord God Almighty!
Don’t believe the lie that says you can’t come to God while you are still struggling with temptation, desire or even sin. This is exactly when you need to come to God!!
He is waiting for you on His throne of grace and mercy. He wants to empower you through His Holy Spirit. He wants you to be free.
