For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. (Romans 7:9)
Recently, I received some unpleasant news. I had so many mixed emotions, I did not know what to do. My first fleshy thought was to go out and hurt this certain individual but my inner spirit told me to pray.
It’s amazing how you can have two things going on with you but often the flesh wins. Well, thanks be to God I listened to His small still voice. Because I obeyed, He gave me the strength to pray for that person as well as myself.
Don’t allow your flesh to tell your spirit what to do…rather allow your spirit to have or take total control over everything you say and do!
I long to do right, help me in my struggle.
