One of the enemyʼs favorite lies is, “Wanting it is the same as falling for it. And you know you want it. So you might as well give up.”

In truth, wanting to satisfy some fleshly desire is the most ordinary and common thing in the world. And, anything we do to fight any of it is a victory worth celebrating. Itʼs natural, in the most literal sense, to want something wrong. You have a sinful nature. (So do I.) It takes submission to something supernatural – Godʼs Spirit – to not just go the way youʼre wired.
