Rom 8:12-13 (AMP) So then, brethren, we are debtors, but not to the flesh [we are not obligated to our carnal nature], to live [a life ruled by the standards set up by the dictates] of the flesh. 13 For if you live according to [the dictates of] the flesh, you will surely die. But if through the power of the [Holy] Spirit you are [habitually] putting to death (making extinct, deadening) the [evil] deeds prompted by the body, you shall [really and genuinely] live forever.
Deji knew that by his willpower it was impossible for him to put to death the deeds of the flesh because he had tried many times and failed. He decided that he was now going to do this by the power of the Spirit. This now became his priority prayer, and he asked the Holy Spirit to supply grace to help him overcome. This was how Deji overcame.
Many people try to overcome the deeds of the flesh by keeping certain rules and regulations. The only way to overcome the deeds of the flesh is by the power of the Spirit. Any other way does not lead to real transformation.
The power of the Holy Spirit to overcome the deeds of the flesh is present when you walk in the Spirit. You walk in the Spirit when you are filled with the Holy Spirit.
Go into today remembering that your life should be controlled by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit controls you by the living word of God that you obey.
Ask the Lord to help you build your life according to His word; pleasing Him in all respects and fruitful in every good work.
