#4782 – Intentionally Walking

Good morning people who continually keep in step with the Holy Spirit.

If we are not intentionally walking in the Spirit, we will unintentionally give into the flesh.

Oh, I feel a word of freedom coming to many today!

We must not get the order of God around the wrong way; we must not allow God’s order to become disorder.

Too many are trying desperately to not give into the flesh. This is with the best of motivations, and I too have been there many times.

What accompanies this desire and pursuit is a subtle but very real thought. It is this: If I can not give into the flesh, then I can walk in the Spirit.

The order is wrong!

Look at the biblical order that leads to freedom:

Galatians 5:16 NIV So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.

Here’s how The Passion Translation puts it:

Galatians 5:16 TPT Let me emphasize this: As you yield to the dynamic life and power of the Holy Spirit, you will abandon the cravings of your self-life.

Order matters! And the right order is God first – this is where the life and power is found!
