Steps to Walking in the Spirit

.
Do you know?? Your flesh (carnal mindset) is in constant conflict with your born-again spirit, for control of your life and your mind is the battleground. You need to recognize that you’re in constant war for your thought life. There are few steps i have shared below, on how to cultivate your Soul and Spirit to live a victorious life. I believe they will help anyone struggling spiritually and emotionally to get to know which buttons to press and the buttons to stay away from.
Points to Ponder on:-

1.You have been called to liberty, but you should not use your freedom as an incentive to sin

Galatians 5:13-For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
  • When you intentionally sin and rely on God’s forgiveness, you defeat yourself. What you practice doing determines what you become.
  • Don’t fornicate or curse someone out just because you know you’re the righteousness of God and are eligible to receive forgiveness.
  • Instead of giving place to the flesh, you should serve others
  • You fulfill the entirety of the law when you love your neighbor as you love yourself-Galatians 5:14-For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself

2.Your born-again spirit is in competition with your flesh for control of your life.

Galatians 5:16-18. I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
  • Every work of the flesh, as well as every fruit of the Spirit, begins with a thought.
  • Your mind is the control center, or central processing center, of your human body.
  • Your life is the sum total of how you think.
  • Walking S23Yin the flesh is a mindset aligned with the world; walking in the Spirit is a mindset aligned with God’s Word
  • .You can’t manifest the fruit of the Spirit without having the mindset of the Spirit; you can’t experience the works of the flesh without a mindset of the flesh.
  • You must think about fornication before actually committing the act.
  • You must think about loving others before you actually love them.
  • When you walk in the Spirit, you won’t fulfill the lust of the flesh (verse 16).

3. You can’t be spiritual without the Word of God.

  • You can’t walk in the Spirit without the Word, because the Word is Spirit and life .John 6:63It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
  • Living according to the Word is what makes you spiritual. When you try to be spiritual without the Word, you are just being “spooky.”
  • Any way of thinking that doesn’t align with the Word is walking in the flesh. This inclu23des traditional religious doctrines.
  • Daily study of the Bible is vital—your potential for walking in the Spirit is directly linked to your understanding of the Word  2 Timothy 2:15-Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
  • If you never read your Bible, then the only potential you have is to walk in the flesh.

4. You will only prosper and be in health to the degree that your soul prospers in these areas (3 John 2).

  • Your thoughts are the plans, or blueprints for your life.
  • If you want to change your life, you must change the way you think.
  • Generational curses, such as poverty and sickness in your family, will only be broken when you change the way you think about them.

5.God’s ways are the highest ways. To walk in His ways, you must discover His thoughts from the Bible

Isaiah 55:7-8:-Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God,For He will abundantly pardon.“ For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
  • God has a thousand ways to straighten out your marriage, help you raise your children and get you out of debt; however, as long as you continue to think according to the world, you place yourself outside of His ways.
  • God knows that you can’t get His ways without first exchanging your thoughts with those that align with His Word.
  • Many Christians allow their thinking to be influenced by unsaved friends, talk shows, TV and movies that don’t line up with the Word.
  • Satan’s words produce thoughts that produce his ways; God’s Word produces thoughts that produce His ways.
  • God sent His Word so that you can think like He does and live His way.
  • Within your mind, God’s Word and the Devil’s words battle for influence and control.
  • The Devil tests you with sinful suggestions to see if he can control you; he knows that your thoughts govern your life.
  • He uses words in songs and images in the media to influence you, gain access to your thinking and use your body to express himself through you.
  • He wants to see if you will accept and nourish his thoughts or cast them down.
  • Although Christians can’t be demon-possessed, they can be demon oppressed, if they allow their thinking to be influenced by the Devil.
Conclusion:-
When you sin, don’t punish your body—it’s not the problem. Your fleshy way of thinking is what needs to be disciplined with the Word.The religious world says you must be perfect before you come to God or attend church, but that is not what the Word of God says.The word of God says to align your thinking with the Word first for change to come second. If you could stop sinning by yourself, you would have no need for God. God knew you needed help to overcome sin—that’s why He says, “Come to Me first.”

The light of God’s Word not religious foolishness, always overcomes darkness.

Psalm 119:130
The entrance of Your words gives light;
It gives understanding
to the simple.
