Spirit vs flesh
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/23- “The War Within—We Can Win!” (Galatians 5:16-17)
Premise Question: How does one triumph over, and declare victory in, the fierce battle of the war within oneself; a hostile encounter, in which we are deeply entrenched, embattled and engaged in, and that seemingly rages on and on, never abating, constant struggle, without an end to the fight in sight?
“So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions.” (Galatians 5:16-17 NLT)
This is something I need you to be crystal clear about, without any misgivings, misunderstandings, due to a lack of information or knowledge, concerning this vital subject matter, of the reality, of the conflict that is ongoing within you. It is the conflict that rages between The Spirit and your carnal humanity. For when you choose to yield yourself to The Holy Spirit, rather than being under the control of your base humanity and very carnal nature, that desires only to indulge and please itself, you in effect, have granted permission, to allow, in your sojourn and walk in this life, to be directed by The Spirit of The LORD that’s living and dwelling within you, as opposed to being controlled, by your godless human nature, that’s antagonistically and antithetically opposed to The Spirit. And, as a direct result of yielding to The Spirit, rather than your base humanity, you will not satisfy, gratify, indulge, appease or in any wise, please your base carnality; and therefore, will not be hindered in or prevented from accomplishing every good thing that The Spirit of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty desires for you to do, while you sojourn and walk upon this earth. (Galatians 5:16-17 PDCP)
Bottom Line: In answer to the premise question…Here’s a short, but succinct and the only good and effective one that really works, answer!
It’s not through our own might, our own abilities or sheer will, that we will triumph. Nor is it by any amount of power or influence that we may have or acquire, that overcomes the battle that rages within. But, it is by and through the efficacious power of The Holy Spirit being allowed to direct, influence and operate in our lives freely and fully, without restraint, that we will win the war that rages within, gain the victory, triumph over our enemies, and then, the peace of Papa God will rule and reign, daily, in our hearts and lives! (Zechariah 4:6, Psalm 60:12) Blessings…
