Romans 13:14 Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.

Our flesh opposes God. Everything God’s Word says not to do, our flesh wants to do. From the beginning with Adam and Eve, their flesh wanted to eat of the forbidden fruit. Now, our flesh wants to do whatever it can imagine.

We are to clothe ourselves with Jesus Christ. What does that mean? It means to tame our flesh with the Word of God. Jesus overcame His flesh and He didn’t allow it to govern His life. He forced His flesh to do the will of God. Example: Jesus’ flesh didn’t want to suffer, die, and be separated from the Father.  Nevertheless, He forced His flesh to comply with the will of God (Luke 22:42).

That same overcoming power Jesus had to overcome His flesh resides inside of us. So, put down that donut, tame that lustful desire, control that temper, and stop being so moody. Don’t do it by will power. Allow the Spirit of God to help you overcome the desires of the flesh.
