Sorry flesh yeah...but we're walking in the spirit now... ok?
Galatians 5:16 "But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh". It's there in black and white my friends. As I post this right now, my flesh is giving me the side eye. Telling me that there is no harm in desire, in folllowing you heart, in doing what makes you happy...and it all sounds legit and harmless... but it's justification to choose our will over God's. I've not read the Word from cover to cover, but I'm yet to come across a verse that encourages us to follow our hearts.... Jeremiah 17:9

The heart is deceitful above all things,  and desperately sick;  who can understand it?

Says it all really. I don't have enough fingers and toes to count the number of times my heart has desired things that do not please God. That are for my own personal glory, to make myself feel good damning the consequences or people around me.
While
Psalm 37:4 says "Delight yourself in the Lord,  and he will give you the desires of your heart." We must remember that it first says to delight ourselves in the Lord. When we are at one with the Lord our desires begin to mirror His will, and as for the desires that are not of Him... well it goes without saying that He won't have any part in it.
The fight against the flesh isn't daily battle but a second by second, minute battle. But it's not a battle to be fought alone. To do it alone will leave us frustrated and worn out.

We are encouraged to turn to Christ-

Romans 13:14
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

We have the strength of the one who endured all forms of temptation but sinned not. Let's be encouraged to pray against the flesh. No prayer refunds available.
