Galatians 5:16-18

How To Walk In The Spirit

Transcript

Galatians 5:16-18 but I say walk by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh 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 but if you are led by the Spirit you are not under the Law here’s a very interesting thing God showed me a little analogy a little picture many many years ago of the spirit, the soul and the flesh it was like three little boxes over here is the spirit and there’s a door between the spirit and the soul and a door between the flesh and the soul and what I realized that Galatians 5:16 is saying is these two doors are mutually exclusive when you walk in the spirit you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh it’s not saying try not to it’s saying it’s impossible, you can’t here’s what I realized when the door to the spirit between the spirit and the soul is open the door between the flesh and the soul soul is automatically closed and when the door between the flesh and the soul opens the door between the spirit and the soul automatically closes and the soul is your mind your will, your emotions how do you get the door to the flesh closed over here you never get it closed by fighting and trying to get it closed what Galatians 5:16 says when you open the door to the spirit, the door to the flesh automatically closes they can’t both be open at the same time it never works to try to stop doing this or stop doing that stop doing this other thing that’s of the flesh how do you change that get the door to the spirit open what does that mean come before the Lord read His word pray, renew your mind receive what He’s saying to you and that opens the door to the spirit automatically the door to the flesh closes on the other side when Paul says here I say walk by the spirit you will not carry out the desire of the flesh He’s not saying try not to He’s saying it’s impossible you can’t if you get the door to the spirit open door to the flesh automatically closes how do you shut down the activity of the flesh the wrong things in your life not by fighting against them and trying to stop them you get them stopped by opening the door to the spirit meditating on the word of God praying in the spirit listening to what he’s saying communing with Him worshiping Him spending time with Him when you do those things you get the door to the spirit open so today you have an opportunity to open the door to the spirit or you can leave the door to the flesh open the door to the flesh by the way is spring loaded it opens automatically you know how you get it closed open the door to the spirit on the other side it automatically closes let’s pray Father I pray today for a powerful anointing for every one of us to open the door to the spirit I pray today Lord that you would show us where we have been shutting down to you where our heart and our spirit has not been open to you Father we choose right now to open to you to open our spirits to you to declare you are the Lord you are the King we live in you, we’re here on this earth at your pleasure Father we open the door to you this day and I pray that we would abide in you, walk in you and see your supernatural miracles in our lives today I thank you for that in the mighty name of Yeshua Amen
