I am a person who finds it special that God speaks to me and humbling to think that God might use me to speak to others.

Scripture:   Galatians 5:16  So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.  

Observation:   Removing sexual immorality, hatred, jealousy, fits of rage and other works of the flesh mentioned later in this chapter from one’s life cannot be accomplished by trying to do just that.  Trying to convince myself that I really do not want to do something just does not work.  Talking myself into being strong and resisting temptation is useless too.  The only way to overcome the tendency of the flesh to succumb to temptation is to focus on what the Spirit is saying and doing. 

Application:   I must give up trying to win victory over the temptations in my own strength.  It is when I walk in the Spirit that I do not gratify the desires of the flesh!      

Prayer:   Lord, thank you for your Holy Spirit who lives in me and walks with me and talks to me.  You sure knew what I would need!   I sure need His help in overcoming the temptations around me.  Amen
