So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
You need to stay close to Me at all times. Don’t let go of My hand… I know it’s not the easy road, but it’s the best one for you. Sometimes you let go and lag behind, not stepping up to where I want and need you to be. Other times you let go and you go on ahead of Me and then you wonder why things didn’t turn out quite like you anticipated and hoped. My timing is everything and it’s perfect. Wait on Me and take My lead. If you look around and wonder where I am, know that I’m not far off. I can still see you in My sights. However, it’s best if you hang onto My hand and walk with Me, beside Me. Keep Me close by, we are much stronger together and you need this. Living with Me and by My Spirit will help you withstand the desires of your sinful nature and the natural consequences that disobeying brings. So hang tight to My hand and walk beside Me… it’s the safest and most fulfilling place to be.
