The core of who I am… “does my spirit man and my flesh match up, does my life reflect my spirit-man or my flesh, if they don’t match the flesh will always win and what comes out is really what is inside of me. If the cup is clean on the inside it would reflect on the outside”
This is a statement I made in a letter to my wife a few years back, it was from a conversation I had with a man that was counseling me and mentoring me. This my friends is what I rely on daily, I speak this out daily along with one other statement I start my day out with….”Lord, I need you today, I cannot make with it without you today, I tried doing my way and I failed miserably”
Our flesh is strong and our flesh will always win if our Spirit Man is weak!!! There is only one way to strengthen your spirit man and that is to FEED HIM!! If we spent as much time feeding and strengthening our spirit man as we do feeding our flesh we would be amazing men of God in every area of our life.
There will always be a battle between flesh and spirit — strengthen the one that will not die and fade away, grow old, weak and frail. I am not trying to sound sharp or mean here but listen closely….. YOU WILL NEVER EVER BE a man of God, a Godly husband, a Godly father, and a light in this world if your spirit man is a weak little man, the truth is you are either growing or you are moving backwards.
I want to encourage you to BE what you are CREATED to be!!! A warrior!!! A man that loves and leads his family, a man that lays down his life for his family, a man that raises children to love the Lord with all their hearts, a man with integrity that does not have to think about the “right” choice, a man that is spirit led, spirit filled, prayed up and fired up to make a difference in this world.
“As for me and my house we will serve the Lord”
Now go out and have an EPIC day today.
