My spirit desires God, my flesh resists God.My spirit seeks God, my flesh avoids God.My spirit wants to read the Bible, my flesh does not.My spirit yearns for prayer, my flesh dozes off.My spirit is willing but my flesh is weak.
When Flesh is Big….

“Which is easier: to sit with a bucket of butter-soaked popcorn and watch Tom Cruise on the big screen for two hours, or kneel and pray for five minutes? Tom Cruise wins hands down because there is literally no competition. What the flesh hates is God, so it resists anything that smacks of God-especially communion with Him. The flesh can curl up by your side and watch mindless movies all night long. But let even the barest thought of meditations flutter into your mind, the flesh goes to Red Alert. Before you get past “Our Father,” your eyes, which were glued to the screen, now sag in sleepiness, and your attention, which was so fixed on the plot, now zips around the universe faster than the Starship Enterprise.
