The more I grow spiritually, the more aware I become of the inner war that daily takes place—to say what I should, do what I should, think what I should. I’ve become more desperate for God. Without Him, there would be no war. I’d be a slave to sin, plain and simple (Romans 6:5-7). But from the time He saved me and gave me His Spirit, the battle was enjoined.
“For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please” (Galatians 5:17).
If I don’t cling to God, if I don’t seek Him, if I don’t fill my thoughts with Him, if I don’t delight in Him . . . I will drift. I know this. Thus, I pray to remain gloriously desperate.
In 2013, I blogged about this, and then did a 5-week study on my favorite go-to Psalms during times when I especially feel a great need for God. I pray these lessons are a blessing to you.
