Overcome the Flesh: Emotion as Flesh

Overcome the Flesh

“My soul clings to the dust;

Revive me according to your word.”

(Psalm 119:25)

As mature believers we need to learn to ignore the flesh and that includes our emotions.

When the world has said feed the emotions, we have followed with inner healing. That was important and much good has come from it. But the Season has changed and now we need to learn to ignore the flesh in order to soldier in the fight for souls.

How do we overcome our emotions in a healthy way?

We recognise the flesh is death and the spirit is life.

We do not ignore pain and suffering. Jesus heals and we must allow him to do his work in us. And in ourselves, we will discover life beyond pain, learning to rejoice in all circumstances (Philippians 4:4-9 ), and recognising that what Satan or man means for evil, GOD allows for good (Genesis 50:20). When we trust in His sovereignty, we see our lives unfold on His terms; then we live freely and soberly, fully conscious that this is the Time for our lives to be solely committed to Him.

“So shall I meditate on Your wonderful works.” (Psalm 119:27b)

When we fully embrace the mercy and justice of the LORD, His timing and His strategy, we will no longer suffer — not because we are in denial, but because we have learned to overcome the flesh.

Hallelujah, where the Spirit is, there is LIFE.
