“Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead be filled with the Spirit.”
If you are a wine drinker and reading this you don’t immediately need to feel condemned. Instead first think or look back at yesterdays prayer/meditation/affirmation and think about that. Is the SPIRIT within taking a deep enough root in you that it is now ruling over your desires of the flesh?
Being filled with the Spirit is something that can be asked for. Its a prayer to invite the Spirit of God to work in you and through you! I am certain in the past weeks and months you have been asking the Mind of Christ, and the Spirit of the Living God to do work in you. And if you are like most people the distractions of the world, and habits (like drinking, overeating, worrying, etc) that don’t serve us still might be there.
The Spirit is victorious over the flesh. And its a daily occurrence where we have to invite God to be with us to overcome the flesh. Some teachers may call it living in the NOW. I would suggest it’s living in the SPIRIT NOW.
EACH TIME I DRIFT TO A DESIRE OF THE FLESH I CAN REFOCUS MY PRESENCE TO THE SPIRIT OF GOD WORKING IN ME BY SAYING THIS: SPIRIT NOW! (AND REPEATING IT WHEN NEEDED) SPIRIT NOW!
*Meditate, pray or affirm the words in BOLD or that are highlighted! Look for short daily messages from me to spread seeds of hope, encouragement, and expansion of your mind, body and spirit daily!
