Do not think that because you have been saved a long time and have had certain spiritual experiences, your flesh can no longer become prevailing. It is a fact that if our prayer ceases, our flesh will spontaneously show itself to be the same as that of unbelievers… The flesh cannot be influenced, changed, or improved, even after you have been a Christian for many decades. If your prayer ceases, your flesh will be the same today as it was before you were saved. Because the flesh does not change or improve, we need to pray without ceasing.
O Lord! Do remind us to keep praying all the time, every moment of each day, that we wouldn’t revert back to our flesh! Since the flesh is the expression of the old man… May we deny the flesh and put on the new man, who is Christ!
