• “Do not lose yourself in your everyday work and activities. Rather, lose yourself in God. When you are doing work, let your innermost heart be centered on Him. Live in His presence and abide in Him. Then your work will follow you into eternity, and you will reap a rich harvest.” – Basilea Schlink

The Spirit Says … by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/15/11

“The Spirit says, ‘Forgive.’”

“The flesh says, ‘Hold a grudge.’”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Anyone who is a true child of God has been given a new nature. He or she wants to please God. But according to Scripture, even after we’re born again, our “flesh” continues to wage war against the Spirit of God living in us.

“The Spirit says, ‘Be temperate.’”

“The flesh says, ‘Eat whatever you want whenever you feel like it.’”

Nancy: When we choose to give in to the flesh, we allow sin to gain mastery over us. But every time we say yes to the Spirit, we give Him greater control over our lives.

“Give that money to someone in need.”

“Spend it on something you don’t need.”

“Spend some time in the Word.”

“You’ve had a long day. Relax in front of the TV.”

“Hold your tongue.”

“Tell it like it is!”

Nancy: Jesus said, “Apart from me, you can do nothing.” Ask Him to give you the power to say yes to the Spirit today.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
