Today Reminder – 21 September 2016

A reminder for today
So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won't be doing what your sinful nature craves. 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. (Galatians 5:16-47)

There are always two opposing forces in our lives. There is always good and there is always evil. There is always what the Spirit wants us to do and then there is the desires of our sinful nature that is influenced by the enemy as it seeks our downfall. In the end it remains our choice and we decide which way to follow. Do we fall by listening to a misleading enemy of do we follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Each day we face many choices and yes we make many bad choices too. The important thing is that we do  not identify ourselves with the bad choices we make, but that we identify with the guidance that we receive from the Holy Spirit.

You are free to make a choice, but make sure that you listen carefully so that you are not chained by a bad choice. Rather follow the voice of the Lord and live in freedom by His grace and His way.

So today I want you to take every choice you make to the Lord and listen to His voice and let the Holy Spirit guide you. Follow His way and make the choice in faith and not in desire.

Lord, take all our decisions today and show us the correct way. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
