When My Flesh Rises Up

It only takes a moment.

Words are said or unexpected news is heard.

And my flesh rises up…

In anger or disbelief

To accuse, defend or retaliate.

In that one moment words cause me to forget the faithfulness of God or how I am to biblically respond to another brother or sister in Christ.

“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ,

and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.”

-Romans 13:14

HIS words…easy to read, but difficult to live out.

Help me Lord to walk by the Spirit and not by the flesh. Let me not forget Your word that tells me how to live and your faithfulness that reminds me you will take care of me.
