Davidisms - Overcoming You

We all have enemies in our lives. Those who don’t like us. Those who reject us. For all kinds of reasons. But the greatest enemy you’ll ever face may be found by looking in the mirror. You! Sure, the devil is a formidable enemy of mankind. His job description is clear: Kill, steal, and destroy our lives (John 10:10a). He works by bringing a temptation to us, thus luring us toward sin. But what we must realize is that the devil cannot force us to do anything. It is our choice as to whether or not we fall prey to his sinful enticements. Which is why our fiercest adversary is actually ourselves. And that’s why we must learn to crucify our flesh - our mind, will and emotions - and daily choose to be led by the Spirit within us (Gal. 5:25). When we’re led by his Spirit - and not the sinful tendencies of our flesh - we become overcomers. The Spirit’s power lives in us. And enables us to say “no” to sin. Choose to obey the will of God. Daily. Walk in the power of the Spirit in you. When you do, you’ll have the ability to overcome your greatest enemy: You.
