Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak
Here, there are two opposite directions exemplified. One is the way of the spirit and one is the way of the flesh. The way of the spirit is to watch (be alert) and to pray. The way of the flesh is to enter into temptation.
Choose the way of the spirit today. Be alert; be aware of what is happening in your life and in the circumstances around you. Pray; by praying you are choosing not to be a bystander in the circumstances of your life, just wishing your life away. By praying you are choosing to be fully engaged in the circumstances of your life and you are choosing to be an agent of change and Godly action in the sphere of your life.
Is your spirit willing and your flesh weak? Each day as you choose the way of the spirit it will become stronger and your flesh will become weaker. In time the way of the spirit becomes the habit of your life.
Lord Jesus, help me today to choose the way of the spirit, and to become a person of impact and influence in whatever situation I find myself in today.
