Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Matthew 26:41 NKJV)
We all are trying to fill a void that is in us. Whether we realize it or not we need God in our lives. We were designed to have a relationship with God. Our spirits are to be connected to God. Deep down inside of us we want to follow the ways of the Lord because that is our original design.
Many times we try to fill that void with other things like material things, drugs, alcohol, money, etc. Our spirits have a longing to be in God’s presence. Our spirit is willing to do the things of God. On the other hand, our flesh is weak and many times gives in to the temptation of the world.
We need to understand the truth of the matter. If we truly know that our spirit is willing to fulfill God’s will in our lives then we won’t give in to the temptations of the world. We will live a life full of the Spirit of God!
