Galatians 5:16-17 (NLT)
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.

Being Led by the Spirit
It is necessary for us to be led, guided and counselled by the Holy Spirit.
There are always two major forces in our life: the flesh (the carnal nature or the spirit of Adam) and the spirit of GOD (the nature that we received from JESUS when we were born again). These two natures are always at battle against each other.
The carnal nature:
• Wants things that are worldly
• May not always look like sin
• Are things that don’t require GOD’s presence or meets that Bible’s standards
The Spirit of GOD:
• One is led by the Holy Spirit
• Pleases the Holy Spirit
• Pleases JESUS and so pleases the FATHER
These two forces are opposite to each other. E.g. If your spirit wants to dance and worship, the flesh may want to sit and not be noticed. We can easily identify them.
To be led and guided by the Holy Spirit should be our prayer and not just filled by the Spirit.
