"Creatures Of Habit"

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:5
Do you feel like you are a creature of habit? Do you day after day find yourself doing the very thing you said you wanted to stop doing? Or do you find yourself not doing that very thing you should be doing? If so, then I guess you can call yourself "a creature of habit."
Paul speaks of this in Romans 7:14-20. Though we serve God through our spirit man, our flesh has a mind of its own. That which we should do, we don't do, and that which we shouldn't do, we do. Our flesh and spirit are constantly warring against each other.
Before we committed our lives to Christ, we pretty much did what we wanted to do when we wanted to do it. We basically allowed our flesh to dictate our very being. Now that we have committed our lives to Christ, and are learning how to operate through our spirit, the flesh doesn't want to let go. It has been fed for so long, has ruled for so long, that it is determine to continue to do just that. However, we must must learn to put our flesh under subjection. We must learn to live a righteous life according to the Word of God. We must allow the Holy Spirit to operate in us inorder to live the life Jesus has called us to live. Never will a man make it into the kingdom of God living according to his flesh.
In Romans 13:13-14, it tells us, "Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.  There are several scriptures that speaks to us about not submitting to our flesh, and the consequences if we do.
Therefore, we need to be mindful of who or what we allow to rule in our life. Are we going to take heed to the Word of God and be lead by the Spirit, or are we going to fulfill the lust of the flesh and bring total damnation upon ourselves? The choice is ours!
...But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
