Do you struggle with lust, hatred, evil thoughts, jealously, sexual sin…. The list is endless and I and we are faced and struggle with these things constantly – The bible helpfully shows us in James 4 that unhealthy desire and passion is in us all and it seems we seek to gratify these wrong passions and desires through things also sorts of vents….!
Do you reading this let your worldly fleshy passions consume you and dictate you? Gods word I’m sure is challenging you even now but please keep reading as there is hope!
What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? (James 4:1 ESV)
There is hope – ask the Holy
Spirit even now. You simply cannot fight this war that rages inside you on your own. You need Jesus in you and the Holy Spirit your advocate to fight this battle on your behalf.
So instead walk by the spirit in the fruits of the spirit.
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. (Galatians 5:16 ESV)
Pray in the spirit much this helps me so so much!
praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, (Ephesians 6:18 ESV)
Pray for others also!
You can over come this but only once you stop fighting this in your own strength and let God take over.
Make and active choice to turn your passion and desire to loving The Lord Jesus with everything, your heart, mind, soul and strength. This beautiful exchange of intimacy from self to Saviour will be the best thing you ever do! Make Jesus Lord Today!
