Inner conflict…it happens every time we face the decision to either follow God or follow self. On one side is immediate gratification and the unleashing of selfish pleasure seeking…while on the other is righteous behavior befitting a Follower of Christ. This clash between opposing forces is real within us every time we have to make a decision to either give in to our sinful nature or not. In Romans 7:15 Paul deplored his failures about this when he wrote, “I don’t understand what I do. For what I want to do I don’t do, but what I hate I do.” Daily there’s a contest…a tug-of-war so to speak within as our corrupt nature battles against the Holy Spirit for dominance. But just remember this, Greater is He that is in me then he who is in the world!
