“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. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law” – Beloved, there is a war within and either the Flesh or the Spirit will win. It’s one or the other; you can’t live by both. Moreover, no matter how long we have been walking with the Lord or how deep and spiritual we believe ourselves to be, we all have that internal struggle and how we wage that war determines the degree that we emulate Christ in our daily lives. Finally, while believers may lose skirmishes and battles here and there from time to time, they should not be not discouraged or feel defeated, because in the darkest hour of need, God can help them find the strength in Him to walk by the Spirit victoriously and win the war!
