This is the hardest thing for us to do. Fight the flesh! I am a witness that have been tested and tried...but once you learn to fight and WIN the victory is way better than the initial desire beyond your wildest dreams! Example: You want abs, but you LOVE LOVE chocolate cake, not only do you love it you live inside a chocolate cake factory! What must you do? Answer: Have a singular devotion for starters! What do you want more? Once you choose you must put forth effort, discipline, and constantly practice self-control! IF you STAY FAITHFUL you will begin to see the harvest of your obedience! Will it be easy? NO! The smells will entice you...the past thoughts of indulgence will consume you...but you have a power inside of you to make decisions! Brothers and Sisters we MUST learn to fight the flesh. We have 3 enemies....satan, the flesh and the world. Know the difference! And know your God that lives in you have defeated all 3! This is the power in you! Don't let it sit dormant. Fight!
