So I tell you, live the way the Spirit leads you. Then you will not do the evil things your sinful self wants. The sinful self wants what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit wants what is against the sinful self. They are always fighting against each other, so that you don’t do what you really want to do. But if you let the Spirit lead you, you are not under law. Galatians 5:16-18 ERV
You can always tell by the decisions people make as to what voices they’ve been listening to. When what they do doesn’t line up with the Word, they’ve been listening and doing what their flesh wants. That road looks good, but the end of it is destruction.
Especially for those who have been through deep hurt and rejection, don’t allow your past to define your future. The process you’ve been through was not designed to destroy you, but to prepare you for the future of vision and victory in the Kingdom of God.
It’s all just a ruse, a deception to convince you that what you ‘feel’ is more real than what you know in your ‘spirit’. Jesus measured everything by the Word of God and that should also be your measuring stick. If God didn’t say it, don’t do it! That will keep you on the right road, the one that leads to to everlasting life.
Father, today I put on the helmet of salvation, the Words You spoke. They will keep me from making wrong choices and cause the enemy to flee. Keep me alert and aware of the lies Satan tries to get me to believe. I repent of any space I’ve allowed him to occupy and I submit and surrender my will and my little kingdom to You and Your Kingdom. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
