Keys to Victory Over the Voice of The Flesh  

Keys to Victory Over the Voice of The Flesh

Scripture: Romans 8:6

“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”


Hello everyone. Today, I want us to talk about one of the most delicate issues that people, or rather, believers, face on a daily basis. Let me first briefly describe what happens to every believer before they are saved.

First, I’ve heard it said that there is a Spirit within man. That may be the case, but the reality is that man is not a spirit; rather, he is a spirit with a soul, and the soul resides in a body. Prior to salvation, every man’s soul and spirit are completely under the control of his body, also known as the flesh. The Spirit automatically takes control of your body and replaces you as the boss when you are born again.  There is a struggle, and the soul makes the decisions, as one transitions from the physical to the spiritual. The soul chooses which to submit to—the flesh or the spirit.

No wonder God promised to give us a new heart and spirit in Ezekiel 36:26, enabling us to walk in His statutes, observe His judgments, and carry them out. Without acquiring the new heart and spirit Ezekiel spoke of, it is impossible to live a fruitful Christian life on earth. And the only way you could acquire it would be to genuinely experience rebirth by accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour.

Following that, let’s discuss the secrets to be defeating the voice of the flesh. I wholeheartedly concur with Bishop Dag Heward Mills’ observations about the five major keys he listed for defeating the voices of your flesh, and I’d like to share them with you. I’d like to list the five keys here today, and hopefully we’ll talk about them in more detail tomorrow.

I encourage you to aways remember these keys:

  1. The voice of your flesh is your human desire.
  2. The voice of your flesh is your physical feelings.
  3. The voice of the flesh says, ‘’Do what feels nice and easy.”
  4. Do not obey the voice of the flesh if you want to be blessed.
  5. You can silence the voice of the flesh by doing what is hard and difficult.

I’m confident you’ll always remember these five rules, so bookmark this page if you can. If you could join me tomorrow, that would be great. Let’s talk about these keys.


Dear Lord, please help us not to be carnally minded but always to be spiritually minded which brings life and peace, Amen.
