• “By confessing sin we gather strength to resist it; thereby the enemy of our souls is foiled, the conscience is kept tender, the heart is sanctified, and the blood of Jesus becomes increasingly precious. Let us constantly flee to the cleansing fountain!” – Mary Winslow

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.
