DON’T TRUST FLESH

​Matthew 26:41 …the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 

The spirit is willing: You are predisposed (always ready) in your spirit by the Holy Spirit to obey God. You are strong in your spirit by the Holy Spirit. 
The flesh is weak: The weakness of the flesh is it’s susceptibility to sin and it’s inability to obey God.

Remember what Romans 8:8-9 says,” So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But all of you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.”

 

However,Galatians 5:16-17 says,

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, (let the Spirit make the decision) and all of you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these  are contrary the one to the other: so that all of you cannot do the things that all of you would. 

But thanks be to God you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, Phil 4:13. “AND THEY THAT ARE CHRIST’S HAVE CRUCIFIED THE FLESH WITH THE AFFECTIONS AND LUSTS. IF WE LIVE IN THE SPIRIT,LET US ALSO WALK IN THE SPIRIT”{Galatians 5:24~25}.

Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
