Do you want to be turned inside out for God? You need to check your temperature. You need to see how hot you are for God and how cold you are for the devil.

Some of you may be hot for the devil. Some of you like to obey the lust of your flesh because it feels good. And you know what? Sin may feel good, but it doesn't last.

Guess what? The devil will work in your life to make something look good, like a beautiful fountain, but then the fountain gets stale and stagnant. It's going to reek and you won't be blessed. It'll look good and feel good at first, but it's just the things of the flesh.

If you want the true blessings of God you have to walk in the Spirit of the living God. If you walk in the Spirit, you will not obey the lusts of your flesh.

I ask you today to examine where you are with God. In other words, what are you doing for yourself and what are you doing for God or for other people?

Let's look at a few verses in Galatians.
This I say then, walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh (Gal. 5:16).

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-25).
Using these scriptures we see what we need to do first. We need to walk in the Spirit. Then we see the ingredients (or fruits) of walking in the Spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance.

These "fruits" need to be flowing out of your life. If they are not, it's because you're not spending quality time with Him. How do you expect to walk in the Spirit if you don't even know who He is? You have to show God that you mean business!

Do you mean business or not? If you don't mean business, you will show the devil that are actually a co-partner with him! That's right! You are the CEO of the devil. You really want that don't you? No way!

It's time to show God that you mean business! Whether you have to start from the beginning, or maybe just maintain, or maybe start completely over because you messed up.

Make that decision right now; show God that you mean business!
