Like doing it in your sleep . . .

Do you remember learning to brush your teeth? Or how about walking? When you were young, you had to think about those things. Now it is different. You can wake up, get dressed, take a shower, brush your teeth, and do so many other things even before you "wake up." You did all this using a part of your brain that has learned to do certain things "on it’s own." To say it simply, you didnt have to think about it. You just did it. Those things came natural too you.

Oftentimes in our Christian life, we try to train ourselves to live right. We can focus on doing right so much that we can even get stressed trying to remember everything. Do you know that God has provided a way for you to live your Christian life without thinking about it? Galatians 5:16 says, "This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh."

You see, if we walk in the spirit we will live holy lives naturally. We won’t have to think about living right, we just will. And in the end, we can truly say that God is the one who changed us. You see, "It is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure." Philippians 2:13 In order to live right naturally or "without thinking about it" we have to walk in the Spirit.

I would like to challenge you to focus on God throughout your day. Sing praises to Him to yourself, or out loud. Read your Bible often. Ask God to teach you to walk in the Spirit and put on the new man and new nature he has provided for you. If you will allow God to be a major part of your life and walk in the Spirit, you will do right, without thinking about it.

"And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness." – Ephesians 4:24
