2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?”
My Jesus! We blame the spirit for a whole lot in the body of Christ. Flesh can be tricky. We can desire something so badly in our flesh that our flesh will deceive us into thinking that our spirit is in agreement with what we want.
“Did Holy Spirit say for me to post that, say that, do that, or think that or was that really my flesh? Did Holy Spirit say go back to her, leave her, divorce her or did my flesh say that? Am I truly operating in alignment with Jesus Christ in me or does He oppose of my response? Did Holy Spirit say leave, stay, move, transfer, speak, or be silent or did my flesh just catch hold to the first sign that satisfied what it wants?”
See we can want to act in our flesh so badly that the flesh will make us think our spirit caught hold to something. Have you ever seen a post in social media, a video, or a commercial and said, “That’s a sign from the Lord? That was for me?” Was it?
Test every spirit, even your own, to see if it is from God. Some of the things we’re attributing to our spirit is really and truly rooted in our fleshly desires. Flesh can act as an imposter of Holy Spirit- that’s the devil’s specialty, to deceive. Be willing to test it out. That’s the only way we can grow and know.
