“Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.” –Romans 8:5
There is a battle between our sinful nature and what the Spirit desires. Every time we make a decision, we must choose between what our flesh desires and what we feel God would want for us. God’s will is often different from what we would typically choose, but it is always what is best. Following God means that I must be willing to lay down my own desires and go after what He has for me instead.
