Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: I don’t think anybody is born submissive.
“Uhhhgg! He’s fed; he’s changed; he needs his sleep, but he always fights it!”
Nancy: We all came into the world wanting to be in control of everything around us.
“Well, you’re just going to have to cry, then.”
Nancy: But when we become children of God, we receive a new nature. One that recognizes God’s right to rule over us.
So our spirit wants to obey God, but the problem is that our flesh still wants to have its own way. It seems like every day there’s a struggle for control. I know I can relate to that struggle in my own life. Thankfully though, the good news of the Gospel is that through Christ we have the power to say “no” to our flesh and “yes” to God’s control.
As the apostle Paul says, “Walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh” (Gal. 5:16).
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
