God is our most powerful Friend, and His Word and His Spirit are the foundation for living in His power; but we often let the weakest link (our flesh) control us. When our three enemies—the devil, the flesh and the world, send us into a tailspin, it’s a reminder to strengthen our spirit man, which is the regenerated part of us that communicates with God’s Spirit. Jesus said: “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” (John‬ ‭6:63‬)

Our flesh is the weakest part of who we are and shouldn’t control the amazing life God has planned for us.

To be constantly entangled in turmoil, hate, depression, hopelessness, worldly pursuits, etc., is—to waste our life. We were created for a higher and more glorious purpose—to bring glory to God! When we surrender each day to Him and seek His way, His Spirit flows through us and we are given immense power over our three enemies. To have His power, we must study His Word and spend time in His presence. In Him, we find truth which has endured since before the world began. The Bible says:

Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast. (Psalms 119:89-90)

God’s Word anchors us and His Spirit empowers us—to live gloriously.

If you feel as if your world is falling apart—then you’re focusing on the wrong world. We are on this earth—but it is not our home. Someday, God is going to make all that is wrong in this world—right again. His children have this hope which enables them to walk as light and life in this present darkness. He is light; His Word is light, and His Spirit gives us life. Live after the Spirit and not after the flesh and you will live in the victory God has planned for you today!
