Galatians 5:17 For the flesh craves what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are opposed to each other, so that you do not do what you want.

In our minds, there’s a constant struggle between what our flesh wants to do and what God wants us to do. It doesn’t matter if it’s a major or minor decision, it’s a struggle.

Our flesh is highly influenced by Satan. It has no desire to please God. It wants to do what feels right in the moment. Satan can even make a decision seem wise, logical, and beneficial, but is it what God wants us to do?

The best thing we can do is surrender every decision to God. We throw our hands up and say, “God, tell me what You want me to do” and wait on His response.

It’s always going to be a fight with our flesh to surrender to God. The more times we surrender, the easier it becomes. It’s like working out. The first few times, we’re sore and exhausted, but the more we work out, the easier it becomes.

Don’t be lazy or mentally weak by yielding to temptation. Command your flesh to obey God’s will every single time.
