Overcoming Carnality

“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Whether we choose to admit it or not, we all have moments in our lives that we are not particularly proud of. Allowing the flesh to rule our lives is not what God intended for us. In fact, being carnal can get us into a lot of trouble spiritually. Because we are human, of course there will be times that our flesh takes over. We may say or do things that are unpleasing to God.  I am thankful that we serve a God who is merciful enough to forgive us in these times of weakness.

As you go through your day, keep your mind on Him – it is a lot easier to walk in the Spirit when He is consistently in your thoughts.

Prayer: Lord, help me to walk in Your spirit and be sensitive to Your voice.  Lead me today, Jesus! Amen.
