Thurs – April 12 – What It’s Like To Fight The Spirit?

 Even people who are not Christians don’t want to get on God’s bad side.

What is it like to fight the Holy Spirit?  God wants to lead you.  If you follow him you will know him and you will know peace, love joy.

Going against the spirit is like fighting the undertow.  You can’t win.

You will feel more in the  light than in the dark.

Jesus said If you will do for the father like I did for the father you will live in the light and life will not be a heavy burden.  If you fight the Spirit, it’s heavy, it’s dark. And your natural desires, will go against being who God wants you to be.

So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. 17 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. 18 But when you are directed by the Spirit, you are not under obligation to the law of Moses. Gal 5:16-18

 Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for loving me.  Thank you for making it possible to be who you want me to be.  I will look every day for your spirit to guide me.  Thank you for your grace when I mess up.  Please show me today when I am going against you.  Make me aware even when I begin to think different than you want me to think.

I want to be like Jesus

In Jesus Name

Amen and Amen
