”Walk in the Spirit; and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh” [Galatians 5:16]
We all know the difference between walking against the wind and having the wind at our back! A simple analogy of walking in the Spirit—when we walk in God’s guidance the way may be uphill but the energy to maintain forward facing, forward thinking and forward movement means the momentum of the Spirit is with us. I have made you to be more than conquerors, says the voice of the Lord so function according to how I have made you and you shall succeed!
Intentional listening to the voice of the Spirit will always result in a conduct or ‘walk’ in life that is pleasing to the father and productive both spiritually and naturally. The distinction is clear. ”Those who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God” [Romans 8:14]
The way of man is full of temptation but strength to overcome surrounds us,”…you…are being kept by the power of God through faith…” [1 Peter 1:5a] it pushes us deeper into the Spirit releasing the power to resist the enemy.
“Temptation is the tempter looking through the keyhole into the room where you are living: sin is you drawing back the bolt and making it possible for him to enter.” [J. Wilbur Chapman} Don’t even touch the bolt, touch the hem of His garment and help will be there!
