“But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another. But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh” (Galatians 5:15-16).
Jesus sent the Holy Spirit that we would not trade one sin life for another sin life. We are to walk with the Holy Spirit who is within us. We are to care for one another as the Lord cares for us. Do not be deceived. The Lord will lead those who trust in Him. Those who go their own way will walk in the way of destruction. Come and walk in and by the power of the Spirit.
Lord, You are always speaking to me and Your voice is always present. Help me to know that only in You is there hope and a future. Only by Your guidance can I avoid those places where I will fall into the traps of this age. Lead me, O Lord, that I may walk always in the goodness of Your grace and mercy and know the life that You have come to give. Let me not be deceived, nor be led astray.
Come, Holy Spirit, and minister to me this day. Help me to know Your voice amidst all the noise of this world. Lead me in the goodness of all the Good News, taking only that freedom which is mine and no more. Let me not fall into the trap of replacing one sin for another. Teach me all I need to know and begin with today by teaching me those things that I will only learn from You. Amen.
