BE WATCHFUL: KNOW WHEN TO STOP BY OGHENEROBOR DAVID
Galatians 5:16-17 KJV
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
Don‘t Feed the Flesh at the Expense of the Spirit.
Many times when you want you make progress in your spiritual Journey there are things that seems to weigh you down and back, and as you press into the Spirit by the word and prayer to know the lord, sometimes it feels like you should take a break.
You know what I mean right??
Like you’ve been praying and fasting, studying the word and you feel like.. can’t i have a break and watch a movie, a football match or go to the cinema?
I know a certain young man who fasted for many days. (No food and no water, he was praying and fasting). He made so much progress in the spirit , but after the fasting and prayer he went wild on eating and resting to “Gain Back” his physical strength.
But the problem was that he didn’t know when to stop. Soon enough he had fed his flesh so much that at a point it began to look as though he didn’t even fast at all, worldly and fleshly desires began to re-surface. He wasn’t WATCHFUL. ..
That’s how it is with US. We all face these things on daily basis, when the Spirit is nudging us to Pray and go further with him that’s when you want to watch the movie more, you want to sleep more, you want to eat more….
Sometimes it’s really hard I must confess, just when you want to start the sleep the Spirit begins to nudge You to Arise. The conflict between the Flesh and the Spirit. We must choose whom we shall submit to. But choose the discipline of the Spirit and walk into the liberty of God _ Hallelujah!!!
As great as these things are, you must know when to STOP and not allow your flesh overrun your spirit. Don’t play games till you can no longer study the Bible, don’t talk to bae or boo till you can no longer talk to GOD. .
Tell me if this blessed you.
This does not in any way mean that it’s wrong to eat, or it’s wrong to go to the cinema or it’s wrong to play games. It means they shouldn’t take more priority than the things that really matter
