Before I Sleep…

Two things you can do tomorrow to strengthen your walk in the Spirit and resist the realm of the flesh are:

  1. Spend time in prayer and meditation: Set aside dedicated time tomorrow to connect with God through prayer and meditation. Seek His presence, surrender your desires and plans to Him, and invite the Holy Spirit to guide your thoughts, decisions, and actions throughout the day. Engage in biblical meditation, reflecting on Scripture and allowing its truths to shape your mindset. This intentional time with God will deepen your spiritual connection and equip you to resist the allure of the flesh.
  2. Engage in acts of service and kindness: Look for opportunities to serve and bless others selflessly. Actively seek ways to extend love, kindness, and compassion to those around you. Whether it’s through a small act of kindness, volunteering, or helping someone in need, acts of service shift our focus away from self-centered desires and align us with the heart of God. By consciously choosing to walk in the Spirit through acts of service, you cultivate a spirit of humility and selflessness, countering the pull of the flesh.

Evening Prayer:

Gracious God,

As this day comes to a close, I come before You seeking guidance and strength to walk in the Spirit and resist the realm of the flesh. Thank You for the opportunities and challenges I encountered today, for they have reminded me of my constant need for Your presence and guidance.

Father, I acknowledge that I am prone to be swayed by the desires of the flesh. But I desire to live a life that honors and pleases You. I ask for Your grace and wisdom to strengthen my walk in the Spirit. Help me to remain focused on the things that align with Your will and to resist the temptations that pull me away from You.

Lord, tomorrow I commit to spending dedicated time in prayer and meditation. May this time with You be fruitful, deepening my relationship with You and renewing my mind. Guide me as I engage with Your Word, illuminating its truths and helping me to apply them in practical ways. Empower me to live out the teachings of Scripture, making choices that align with Your Spirit.

Father, I also ask for opportunities to engage in acts of service and kindness. Open my eyes to the needs of those around me. Show me where I can extend love, compassion, and practical help. May my actions reflect Your character and demonstrate the power of Your Spirit at work within me.

Lord, I surrender myself to Your leading. Fill me with Your Spirit, that I may walk in step with You and experience the abundant life You have promised. Strengthen me to resist the realm of the flesh and its allurements. Give me discernment to recognize its empty promises and the courage to choose Your ways instead.

Thank You, Lord, for Your faithfulness and the promise that as I seek You and walk in the Spirit, You will guide my steps. I trust in Your unfailing love and seek Your presence as I rest tonight.

In the name of Jesus, who empowers me by His Spirit, I pray. Amen.
