The Monster Within

Being taught that positive thinking will somehow control the desires within so that we’re able to live a righteous life and have the things you want is of course a lie.But after you’ve tried all of that,  you’re  left in defeat and with  a guilty conscience,beating yourself up is not the answer and of course you’ve learned neither is positive thinking. There are so many Ministers and  Bible Teachers leading many the wrong way and they to are caught up in their own lies. They’re preaching and teaching according to their desires and not what God‘s word says is right and good. But yet and still they do not realize that the enemy within is now leading them,it is such a thin line to cross.

(Galatians 5: 17 For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please.)

That is the reason we cannot depend on humans for the answers we need and seek ,the only way to find deliverance and peace from this monster within is through the one who can totally control him  Jesus Christ he is  the way,the truth,and the life and all power is in his hands.

Ephesians 1:4~6    Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.  So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.

Even though we struggle with the monster within(flesh) in Jesus we have victory because he has satisfied God for us Amen.

Love in Christ Pat

    I have said more times than I can count that I am glad I didn’t have to pay my own way! I am thankful Jesus made that sacrifice for us. Praying no flesh (of mine ) will glory in His presence.

    Thanks Pat for sharing this with us, and I love your new format. I couldn’t find the one that you sent title “Test” then I thought maybe she is just trying to see if I was getting her follow ups, so I just sort of picked this devotion to read. I was blessed by all of your devotion, but the last part really caught my eyes. “Even though we struggle with the monster within(flesh) in Jesus we have victory because he has satisfied God for us Amen.” I am so glad that I have Jesus to see me through all those struggles, and He being with me, my battles are won. It is so awesome to lean on the Lord because He is the only one who can carry us through these last days before He return to this earth to bring us home. Love, Hugs, and Prayers, Viola
