Thoughts from the Heart - Galatians 5:16

Galatians 5:16 NLT says, "So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves."

This verse is a powerful reminder that as Christians, we are not meant to live according to our own desires and impulses. Rather, we are called to surrender our lives to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. When we allow the Spirit to guide us, we are empowered to resist the pull of our sinful nature and live a life that is pleasing to God.

This can be a difficult thing to do, as our sinful nature often leads us down paths of selfishness, greed, and pride. But when we trust in the power of the Holy Spirit, we can overcome these temptations and walk in a manner worthy of our calling as followers of Christ.

So, I encourage you to take this verse to heart and allow the Holy Spirit to guide your life. Trust in Him to lead you down the path of righteousness and resist the pull of your sinful nature. May God bless you as you seek to live a life that is pleasing to Him.
