never ever ever....

Our old sinful nature will never ever ever be stronger than the Holy Spirit. We give strength to what we feed. If we continue to choose to feed our former selves then we are choosing to bear bad fruit, giving strength to that which is dead. We need to choose to follow the Spirit in all aspects of our lives so that we continue to produce good fruit that produces life. The choice is yours Abba will not force you, He created us with the free will to choose and He respects that. He doesn't want blind robots (if He did that is what He would have created) He wants people that accept Him and pursue Him freely of their own freewill.
What are you gonna choose?

Galatians 5:16-25 "So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. But when you are directed by the Spirit, you are not under obligation to the law of Moses. When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God. But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives."
