Not by Flesh

Galatians 3:3 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh? (NIV)

This is an easy trap for us.  Most often we start a particular ministry after much prayer and a firm leading and gifting of the Holy Spirit. After a while the ministry becomes routine and we depend on our own fleshly wisdom and talents and gradually the Holy Spirit and His wisdom and guidance are pushed aside by our own thoughts and efforts.  This is why so many ministries eventually fail.  We must be sure we look to the Holy Spirit daily for our direction and not just depend on ourselves, our past habits or the things that worked in the past.  Each day is a new day.  Hopefully each day finds us drawing closer to oneness with God through the Holy Spirit.  Let us always remember all we do and say must be drenched in prayer and carried out through the direction of the Holy Spirit.
