Well I am back from time out. The other day I noticed that when I wake up that there is a race going on between my flesh and spirit. I guessed this has been going on but I did not quite figure it out before.
Then I noticed my flesh is quite fast and usually wins the race. Then I thought, isn't it the spirit is stronger ? Then an answer came, yes the spirit is stronger and faster but the spirit is gentle and will not force its way. Then I thought how will the spirit win ? Then another answer came, you and I have to let the spirit win, we have to lose ourselves as the Bible taught. We have to deny ourselves , carry our cross and follow Jesus. Another analogy is if we are riding a horse(our flesh) we have to hold the rein so the horse will slow down and let the spirit lead.
Try it , when ever our flesh tries to jump start, say whoa! and hold it till the spirit beats us in our race.
