It can feel good to give into temptation to watch something you shouldn’t, to gossip about a friend or to tell someone off. The flesh likes the easy way. The reason some people don’t grow is because they’re not disciplined to do the right thing when it’s hard. You have to be consistent. The flesh is not going to go away. Apostle Paul said, “I die daily(1 Corin. 15:31). Every day we have to say no to things…”No, I’m not going to watch that. I’m not going to eat whatever I feel like. Remember that every time you give into that temptation, you’re feeding and growing the flesh. If you’ll start to not give in to the temptation, the temper, the bad attitude, you’re going to step into a new season of freedom and of growth. Today, pray for God to give you the power to overcome the flesh and be disciplined to do the right thing.
