This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

– Galatians 5:16 King James Version

Live from the inside out:
Live life by walking in the spirit. This is the key to overcoming the flesh.  Your flesh wants you to live by your emotions.  God gave us emotions to enjoy life and NOT to control our lives.  After we are born again, the spirit of Jesus (The Holy Spirit) lives in us.   If you follow the prompting of the Spirit of God within you, you won’t be “dominated” by the pressure your flesh (your emotions) tries to put on you.As you listen to the Word (Faith / Trust and confidence in God comes by hearing the Word Romans 10:17) and you learn how to yield to the Holy Spirit telling you what to do, you’ll constantly be making little adjustments in your life according to what He says. And those little adjustments will keep you walking in victory.You see, God always and only wants you to walk in life constantly and victoriously.  This means full of peace and joy and enjoying every day of your life.  He knows just what you need to do this on a consistent basis.  He can look ahead in your life and see the traps and pressures the devil is laying out for you to walk into.  So follow the Holy Spirit’s leading and He will maneuver you safely around them to consistent victory.

 Thought for the Week Confession

 If I walk in the Spirit, I won’t be led by my emotions.
