For those that live according to the flesh, set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the spirit set their minds on the things of the spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but those who set their mind on the spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile towards GOD, for it does not submit to GODS law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please GOD. Romans 8:5-8
Doesn’t this sound like I do what I don’t want to do yet do and don’t understand my own actions. I know GOD and I claim to know his law yet I still do exactly what I don’t want to do.
It feels like the analogy of the good angel on one shoulder and then of course the Devil on the other shoulder. It feels like the conversation that you relive in your mind over and over again when your telling yourself your sick and tired of being sick and tired. It feels like those days that everything seems to be going right and in an instant everything goes wrong. It taste like a dinner of roses when it turns out to be lilacs. Hey… at least lilacs are purple.
It sounds like the repeat of the song Ironic by Atlantis Morisett. Remember that song? It’s all the same. You never know what’s going to happen rather it be good or bad.
And when everything is looking up because GOD is truly blessing you with answered prayers a break here and there because you were there at the right place or right time?
Is it really that way in the Spiritual World. All those things happen in the Worldly world. And the reason for this is because we can have good in the worldly world however to have sound mind peace in your heart to be wearing a smile all the time comes from the spiritual world and by living understanding and knowing the Law.
It’s no longer a break, it’s no longer worry, it’s no longer doubt, fear, being broke, miserable barely happy. It is the spirit of life. True heaven on earth.
We cannot live up to our full potential if we are loving people places and things more than we love GOD. You don’t take anything with you, not even your body. Your soul goes.
It’s living the 10 Commandments. When you live the 10 Commandments I promise you nothing above that I spoke of matters. It’s pure love. I will say it over and over again til I’m blue in the face. It’s GODS Love to us for us to learn and feel the unconditional Love so that we may turn and first have unconditional Love for GOD then to teach so that we may glorify his power.
What do I gain if, humanly speaking, I fought with beasts and Ephesus? If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die. 1 Corinthians 15:32
What do we truly gain by living a life of of the flesh? You fight with your parents engage in fights, lie cheat and steal commit udultry commit murder by gossiping and slandering another one of GODS creation.
Excuse me, who are you? Why wouldn’t you live by flesh. The point of it is this.
We must love another just like we love our father in heaven. We must treat people the way he treats people. Does he say to another person f you, you stole lied cheated engaged in gossip and whatever else that’s negative in which living in the flesh is negative so I’m not going to love you? Does GOD tell his people that?
No! He came in flesh as Jesus and gave his only son to bare the weight of the world so that YOU may become new in Spirit because Jesus is God. He is the perfect image. He never sinned was crucified and risen from the dead so that we may be reborn again through him and his thinking.
There is nothing in this world that you and I go through that Jesus did not. He saw it all. Everything under the sun belonged to his Father. The Father In Heaven. However he has the mind of his father and so do YOU if you want it. YOU have to truly know that you want it. Choosing Spirit over flesh is hard! I get it. Believe that. However, when learning to walk according to the law when YOU mess up later GODS got your back. That’s a fact!
I am the lord; I have called you to righteousness; I will take you by the hand and keep you; I will give you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison of those who sit in darkness. I am the Lord; that is my name; my glory I give to no other nor my praise to carved idols. Isaiah 42:6-8
When he says he will take your hand lead you that’s a promise! When you have been called, your called to his purpose. GOD has predestined your life. Especially those who have had trauma, tragedy, everything just seems not to work however when you think your sinking you some how some way start swimming. It’s GOD!
Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future. Many are the plans of the mind, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. Proverbs 19:20-21
Oh my Father In Heaven how I love you so much. You are my feet my hands my tongue which projects thoughts. For that I am forever grateful. Father please keep giving me understanding and I pray that whoever is reading this that you take control of their thought and they know that what is said is truth! As I know you will. Father please guide and direct my thoughts and everyone around this world so that they may learn to walk by your spirit and not by flesh. That they may gain spiritual thinking so that whatever plan you have for them comes true. Thank you for what you do for us with us and to us. Please forgive us of all our sins. In you precious name of Jesus Amen
Sending so much love to you all,
