Daily Walk with the Holy Spirit

How is your life spent?

"That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;" Colosians 1:10

As we live our everyday life there is only three ways that every second of our life is spent.

Living in God's will for our life.

We let the flesh become satisfied by its urges.

We have given into sin's urges, satan's temptations.

God has already paid the ultimate price for your sin and mine.

Do you get side tracked on other things and leave God behind?

D you focus on your circumstances?

We all fall at some point, cause we are not perfect.

We need to pick ourselves up and keep on going with God.

It doesn't matter what has happened to you, it is in the past.

If you ask forgiveness, it has been washed under the blood.

We must go on.

We must go on in the power of His name.

We must stay focused on the Lord.

We sometimes think that we can handle life all by our self.

Boy, have I got news for you - we can't.

We need God.

He needs our total dependency upon Him.

Our dependence must solely be upon Him.

God is always there.

When we are in trouble, God is there.

When we fall short, fall into temptation, God is there.

He asks that we cry out to Him, so that we acknowledge that we need help.

Paul the Apostle said it best when He said, "O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 7:24-25a

Paul was telling us that there is always room for improvement.

Only Jesus is the One who can save us from that conflict.

Our life is entagled from a sinful nature.

Do we follow God's Word - His truths.

Do we follow our old sinful nature?

This should be a no brainer.

Do you want the victory over sin and the flesh?

Who wouldn't?

"For I know that in me [that is, in my flesh,] dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me." Romans 7:18-20

The victory over sin and the flesh is not in us, but the power of the Holy Spirit.

We are helpless as ever.

We need that dunamis power of God.

That same power that was used to raise Jesus Christ from the dead.

What He has for you is the absolute best for your life.

We need to stop fighting with God.

We need to be seeking only His will for our life.

We need to let go of those thoughts of fear, and bitterness.

We need to let go of that self centeredness.

When we don't let go of all these hindrances it leaves an open door for the enemy to come in.

He will plant those deceptive thoughts in your brain.

It is when we keep our focus on Him and not our circumstances that the enemy will become defeated.

"Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away." Isaiah 51:11
