When we do what our flesh wants we lose what our soul wants.
Eating worldly food does not make our spiritual stomach satisfied. Just like spiritual food does not satisfy that hunger for that nice juicy steak. Your worldly hunger does not always have to be food. It may be money, power, sex, positional items, glory, comfort, 'friends' (popularity), or even looking attractive.
Spiritual hunger is always intertwined with god and the Holy Spirit. If you don’t have those two things your spiritual body will die. When you feed your worldly body with worldly things and don’t worry about your spiritual well being, the Holy Spirit will wither away and become faint, and God’s voice will eventually seem very small and insignificant.
That is when the crap will happen. That is when you fall of the 'doing the right thing' truck and land on the hard pavement only to be smashed by the semi of horrible experiences.
Feed your spirit, and safety, wisdom and knowledge, will follow you wherever your path may take you, for Jesus will always stay by your side to guide you.
Do you feel like your flesh is sometimes waging a battle against your spirit? How often do you feed your spiritual hunger before your fleshly hunger?
