    Today’s Word of Strength

    Romans 8
    5   For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on (12) the things of the
    flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, (13) the things of the Spirit.
    6   (14) For the mind set on the flesh is (15) death, but the mind set on the Spirit is
    life and peace,
    7   because the mind set on the flesh is (16) hostile toward God; for it does not
    subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,
    8   and those who are (17) in the flesh cannot please God.
    9   However, you are not (18) in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God
    (19) dwells in you. But (20) if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not
    belong to Him.(NASB)

    Matthew 26
    40   And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto
    Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
    41   Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but
    the flesh is weak.
    42   He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this
    cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. (KJV)

    Grow in grace, and may the Lord bless you.  Amen.
