Apostle Grace Lubega
Galatians 6:8(AMP); For he who sows to his own flesh (lower nature, sensuality) will from the flesh reap decay and ruin and destruction, but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
Often times when people speak of sowing to the flesh or to the spirit, they in fact are referring to the results of sowing to the flesh or the spirit.
For example, success is a result of sowing to the spirit and not the actual sowing to the spirit. Disease can be a result of sowing to the flesh but is not sowing to the flesh itself.
Sowing to the flesh or to the spirit is being conscious of who you are in the flesh or who you are in the spirit. What we get to experience in the spirit or flesh is a result of this consciousness.
A Christian who sows to the spirit is alive to who he or she is in God. When anything negative comes his way, his first thought is that he has the life of God in him, that greater is He that is in Him than He who is in the world.
One who sows to the flesh changes the confession of his lips the moment adversity comes his way; he moans about being headed for death when he receives a doctor’s report or imagines the worst possible scenario at the first sight of trouble.
Every believer must constantly be alive to who is in them and whose they are.
Your first waking thought should be the knowledge that in Him you live, move and have your being (Acts 17:28).
Do not allow weakness to dominate your thoughts when you come face to face with difficulty, disappointment, pain or failure. Let your first reaction to circumstances be the knowledge that God is in you and that you are not alone. In this understanding, you reap life: increase, blessings and growth.
Glory to God!

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. I know who I am and who is in me. My heart is consumed by the liberties of the Spirit and my mind is opened to the reality of the constant victory that I have in You. I can never fail! All things work out for my good! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
