This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16).
The reason some Christians find themselves struggling with the flesh is that they’re not living the Word (James 1:22). The Word of God is clear: Walk in the Spirit, and you’ll not fulfil the lusts or desires of the flesh, as our opening verse states. Some have been trying to crucify the flesh for a long time to no avail.
God never told us to crucify the flesh, because the flesh has already been crucified; it happened the moment you were born again.
Galatians 5:24 says, “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” So, if you’re struggling with the flesh, simply stop;
just act on the Word; walk according to the life and nature of God that’s in your spirit. 1 John 1:7 tells us to walk in the light, as He (God) is in the light; in other words, walk in the light of God’s provisions for you in Christ, as revealed in the Word.
For example, Romans 6:14 says, “For sin shall not have dominion over you…” ; therefore, if you find yourself struggling with a sinful habit, don’t become frustrated! Use the Word. Affirm, “I’m the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus; sin has no power over me.
Walk in His Light by Pastor Chris
I refuse to be entangled by any yoke of bondage. I put a stop to this habit, in Jesus’ Name.” Make this declaration and begin to walk in its light, and sin shall not lord it over you. Hallelujah!
Dear Father, I thank you for enlightening me on the path of life through your Word; your Word is light and full of glory. I walk in the light of my
righteousness, exercising dominion over Satan, sin, and the flesh with its affections and lusts. I’ve overcome the world, and I live triumphantly every
day, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
