Having A Mary Spirit-Bible Study
What does your flesh woman look like most often? A tattoo-and leather biker chick? A well dressed church lady? Or something else?
I’m not sure I am well dressed, but a church lady is who I attempt to resemble. All or most of the dressing is there. Sometimes the make-up may be flawed and the hats I wear don’t always reflect a well dressed church Lady. Some days my hat is floppy. I flip between being spirit filled and worldly. My shoes occasionally have scuff marks and my purse is often filled with baggage which is all safely put at the bottom or hidden in those zipper pockets, only the good church lady qualities are placed on top in case someone takes a look inside. Unfortunately sweet songs of praise do not flow from my mouth 24/7 but complaints, frustrations, and hopelessness are my songs of praise. "The Flesh woman" rears her ugly head too often, but Church Lady is fighting and screaming.
What most spoke to me?
Being able to give the flesh woman an identity and developing an understanding she is always going to be with me. My goal is to not let her win and when she does to confess and accept God’s forgiveness and grace and move on ensuring I pay attention to my behavior, speech and thoughts keeping them filled with God’s word giving her(flesh woman) limited opportunity to show herself. Giving the Holy Sprit the freedom to invade each area of my throne and establish the Lordship of Jesus within. I Choose God for I want to be on His side.
