God's word says - "So, I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature." - Galatians 5:16
And then he goes on to say my favorite part and the point to my thoughts today.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control..." - Galatians 5:22-23
Isn't that what we all strive for? We are so busy trying all other ways to achieve these things - when God is saying all you have to do is live by the Spirit! God's way is always so simple and the best, yet pride of our self keeps us from the very thing we are trying to achieve.
I am in amazing bible study and I can not get enough of His word. I feel like I have been living off bread crumbs and I am finally getting some meat. I humbly pray that I look less like the world every day and resemble ( just a little, I pray) my heavenly Father.
