One evening an old Cherokee told his Grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people. He said, “My son, it’s like there is two “wolves” who battle inside us all…
One is Evil… It is worldly anger, envy, jealousy, greed, arrogance, lies, revenge, fleshy self-pity, unrepented guilt, ego, resentment, inferiority, hate, fleshy pride , superiority, unforgiveness, and all other types of evil that are part of the flesh.
The other is Good… It is Love, Faith, Truth, Joy, Peace, Hope, Humility, Kindness, Godly wisdom, Benevolence, Empathy, Generosity, forgiveness, Compassion, unity with God and other believers and all that is Holy…
It is the beauty that can only come through the Holy Spirit as we walk in Christ Jesus …Jesus lives His life out in us and sets us free from the bondage of sin and we reflect Him.
The Grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his Grandfather, ” Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you choose to feed.”
2 Corinthians 6:18“I will be a Father to you, and you will be my Sons and Daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
Romans 8: 16 For we did not receive a spirit that makes us a slave again to fear, but we received the Spirit of sonship. And by Him we cry, “Abba,Father.” The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s Children… His Sons and Daughters.
2 Corinthians 7:1 Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
Romans 8:12-15 Therefore, we have an obligation—but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. For if we live according to the sinful nature, we will die; but if by the Spirit we put to death the misdeeds of the body, we will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
We remember the Battle Belongs to the Lord so let’s Surrender and allow Him to be Lord of our life and then Trust Him for the Victory as we choose to turn from evil and do good!
