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.
Reflect and Respond:
How does knowing that you're in the middle of a spiritual battle change how you approach the rest of your day today? What verse might you take with you to help you fight this battle?
Father, thank You for Your Holy Spirit. Help me to see Your guidance, follow it, and live in true freedom. Amen.
