 Crucifying the flesh is a regular, uncomfortable, unnatural, holy business.
It must be done daily and deliberately;
It must be done with earnest resolve and an intensive appeal to the Spirit for a supernatural impartation of strength.
The glory of resisting the flesh lies in the desire to give glory to God;
He is worth the battle every time.
Do not grow disheartened in the heat of the battle by all that wars within you,
by all that must be resisted and refused;
it is only a display of God at work and the Spirit's presence manifesting.
A sure witness that what you leave behind will be superseded by what you receive within.
Drive a stake into the reality that a great grace and an immeasurable peace awaits you at the end of the battle.
Drive a stake into the flesh;
and God will drive a stake into your soul.

You are His and He is yours …
Forever and ever.
