When you get tired of statisfying your flesh, and truly find out that your flesh is only statisfied for a moment and as soon as it dies down, your flesh desires more; try to awaken your spirit in order that you will be statisfied like never before.
Your spirit man is desiring and awaiting the moment when you recognize that once the spiritual you become satisfied, then all of you will be satisfied. I did not fully understand this until I sought truth. My truth was that I never wanted God's spirit to illuminate within me because I was not ready to live right. Nevertheless, I found myself getting pulled deeper and deeper in the desires of my flesh. And this was leading me into a pit that I couldn't seem to get out of. It was not until one day, I opened my front door and almost instantly, I saw a glimpse that caused me to lie down right there in the floor and cry out, "Lord, please renew my spirit so I can worship You in spirit and in truth." I admitted to God that I was filty and covered in the disease of flesh desires, and I told the Lord of all the things that I'd experienced in my flesh and past, that caused me to feel unworthy of His Love and the guidance of His Spirit. Then, I wailed before the Lord. I cried more that day than I had ever cried before. My house use to be so dark, because that's how my life was....DARK, then I started to desire to pull the curtains to let the light shine in. This is what was happening inside of me as well, but I had no words to explain that my spirit man was a light that shineth in darkness.
Now, I understand that God desires my true worship and as I worship Him in spirit and in truth, He renews my mind daily and keeps me from the transgressions that my flesh would wall captive to. So, this Christmas, find yourself a small corner and just lay before the Lord. Ask Him to allow His spirit within you to become the source of your every supply, ask Him to allow His spirit within you to order your steps continuously, and ask Him to cause your flesh to become totally subject to your spirit. For then and only then will you gain a spiritual transformation that will lead you into all truths!
