Feed the spirit not the flesh

I have made many a change in my life in just seven days. It has been heart wrenching and hard to deal with. I have learned that I need to move self out of the way. Can't be selfish, can't be self sustaining, can't be ME. (that statement may sound selfish, but let me continue)...

There are times where the spirit will tell you to step away, and you better or get caught up in the mess that goes on in your mind. Stop feeding the flesh. Stop walking the realm of ME. (selfishness)

People that are still of the world will get it all confused. They think and speak before they pray and ask the Lord to give them wisdom. The reponse of the flesh (the controller) is mean, demeaning and not loving. No matter what the other person says.

The flesh is going to look for affirmation from the world in order to be right. Those walking in the flesh do not know that God is in full control.

So, feed the spirit! And what does that mean....getting in your word and show yourself approved. I have been lazy at this, but I will pick up the pace and get back on track! AMEN??
Taken from 2 Timothy 2:15-19 (NIV)
15Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 16Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. 17Their teaching will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18who have wandered away from the truth. They say that the resurrection has already taken place, and they destroy the faith of some. 19 Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his,"[a] and, "Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness."

Be sure to take the time to read Chapter 3, it refers to godlessness in the last days.
Jeremiah 17:5 This is what the LORD says: "Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD. (emphasis mine)

Feed the spirit, die to the not walk the way the world walks.

Titus 3:1
Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good,
