Christians struggle daily with inner conflict. Even though we have given our life to Christ our old human nature still exists and can cause us problems. The Holy Spirit in us desires the things of eternal meaning and not to focus on our self. Our flesh is always wanting something else, something new, things that are of the earth and that really don’t matter. We often feed our emotions. Are you feeling that inner battle? Christ wants us to live in victory over the things that pull us down. Satan has a way of making these things look great at first but before we know we have done what we want to do and not what the Lord instructs in His word. Often we hurt the ones we love and most of all our self.
You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
