The Upward Look

“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.” Galatians 5:16 NASB
Paul states a great principle concerning how to live a victorious godly life in the midst of a wicked world. The believer is to continually and constantly walk by the Spirit. The word “walk” means your daily conduct or lifestyle. The believer is to keep living under the command and control of the Holy Spirit. He is to be obedient to God’s Word, to be completely surrendered to God’s will, and to be filled with God’s grace, mercy, and love. If the believer does this, he will not do the evil wishes of the old, sinful, fleshly nature.
Lord Jesus, thank You for the victory over the sin through the power of the Holy Spirit. Help me to continue to live this day in obedience to the Spirit’s leadership.
