So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will gratify the desires of the sinful nature. Galatians 5:16. Devotion from Joyce Meyer: We are to willingly give the Holy Spirit control of our lives, allowing Him to lead and guide us. Most of us would say this is the desire of our heart, but few of us actually do it. What’s the problem? Our flesh tries to control. Galatians 5:17 says; that the flesh is opposed to the Spirit. We must refuse evil and choose the good. The Holy Spirit’s role in our lives includes promoting us to make correct choices, but His role is not to force us to make them. God wants us to trust His direction enough simply to obey it, even if we don’t understand it. When we willingly give the Holy Spirit control of our daily lives, He leads us into victory. Give the Holy Spirit control of your life. He will lead you into the perfect will of God for you, which includes exceeding, abundant blessings peace, and joy. Amen! Have a wonderful day! Jesus loves us all.
