i was thinking, “what if life worked the way electronics worked? wouldn’t that be great? i really could adjust everything to suit me and my preferences.”
then a Holy Spirit whispered thought came, “would that kind of life improve you character? would it make you more full of joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control?”
it really would not it would only make me more of a brat and self-centered and evil. it would essentially feed my flesh. like a wise friend said an it keeps ringing in my heart, “the flesh cannot be redeemed, it can only be killed?”
“And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” – Galatians 5:24 (ESV)
so i continue on focused on walking in the Spirit not trying to be safe but trusting God and learning to be secure in Him despite the chaos.
