February 4 (Gen.37; Mark 7; Job 3; Rom.7)

The Christian is at war! The greatest enemy, however, is not Satan but Self! We are our own worst enemies! Paul in Romans 7 describes this battle. In this chapter he tells us about his desire to do God’s will fighting with the desire to sin. Both of these desires lie in his heart.  So how do we win the battle and follow hard after God? Verse 25 tells us, “Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!” It is by depending on the indwelling Spirit of Jesus that we find freedom. Chapter 8 will elaborate on this. Do not, however, wait until tomorrow to lay down your arms and pick up the weapons the Lord provides you by reliance on His Spirit.
