November 18

Sometimes I carelessly go about my day without a thought or remembrance of God. It’s not that I’ve completely forgotten about Him, I’m just living. He knows. He understands. Let’s be real, it’s like that with anyone that lives in your household; you know they are there, and you acknowledge them when you’re not busy, but we have certain requirements of life to fulfill. Am I like Paul and do what I do not want to do? Yes! I would prefer to live harmoniously with, and in the Spirit all day long, but because I’m made of flesh, I’m drawn to doing what the flesh calls for. Here’s the good news if you’re like me; you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you! He lives within you if you have surrendered your life to Jesus.  Stop worrying about your commitment to Him, your every breath is living for Him. You are not condemned, you are privileged, because you are a believer!

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus... You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.” Rom 8:1 & 9
