“For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want.” Galatians 5:17
If you are a Christian, an epic battle is raging inside you between your flesh and your spirit. For those of you who made New Year’s resolutions, I’m not telling you anything you’re not already painfully aware of. Whether your resolution was to stop smoking, stop drinking, loose weight or read your Bible more, I’m sure you have faced major resistance from your flesh. In fact, 92% of all New Year’s resolutions fail. Many of you reading this have already given up and we’re little more than a month into the new year.
What ever your struggle is, God wants to help you get through it and claim the victory. One of the most powerful ways to strip your flesh of its power over you is by fasting. When combined with time dedicated to prayer and Bible reading, you can also super charge your spirit to be stronger. Yes, it takes discipline, but you can do it! If you’ve given up on your resolution, I encourage you to pick a day this week that you can fast. Spend the time you would have spent eating by praying and reading the Bible. The conflict between your flesh and your spirit is going to be decided by which one you feed the most.
If you are new to prepping or would like to learn more about how to prepare for tomorrow, please read our 7 Step Preparedness Plan. Come back every Sunday for a new Prepper Bible Study! The most important prep of all is knowing GOD. Jesus said “what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world yet loses his own soul?” Prepper translation: “What good will it do you to survive the coming economic collapse, nuclear war or even a zombie apocalypse if you don’t know you will go to heaven when you die.” A recent study found that 10 out of 10 people die! On that day we will meet our Maker. It only makes sense to be prepared for that day. Click here to learn more about knowing GOD.
Have a blessed day and happy prepping!
