Word of the Day.... March 6, 2013

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

Humans are a trinity made up of body, mind, and spirit.  We are basically, a spirit living in a body, possessing a consciousness or mind.Now my mind is either going to be controlled by fleshly desires, or it is going to be controlled by spiritual desires. If I'm living after the flesh, giving in to the passions and desires of my flesh, then the result will be that I will have a carnal mind. Paul said “we are to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2 Cor. 10:5).

When we find our minds absorbed in the things of the flesh, it is important to take control and say," I don't want to think on those things”. I find it helps me to start singing a worship song or just turn my mind to the Lord. Get into the Scriptures. We want to live in the Spirit. We want to walk in the Spirit. If we do, we will not fulfill the lusts of our flesh. When we are walking in the Spirit the He will reward us with the fruits of His Spirit.  I hope that all of you have a Simply Heavenly Wednesday!!! :):)
