Getting rid of the inner conflict

There are so many who teach that we can never get rid of the inner conflict…but I am led to believe you can. How? By the sanctifying power of the Baptism with the Holy Spirit and fire. The inner conflict is what causes man to break weak to the Devil. The Devil thrives on defeat. So glad Christ made me a winner.

God’s sanctification can rid the believing heart from all struggles that lead to defeat. Then the Devil has a battle on His hands. A child of God lives under the authority of Christ. Christ never loses a battle with the Devil. When the inner conflict is purged,  peace takes over the inside…then you can stand on the outside – then you can resist the Devil – then you can overcome any of life’s temptations.

Perfect peace on the inside…stands for any battle on the outside. Outside conflicts will always come but perfect peace on the inside – gives no place for the Devil. Goodbye aggravation – goodbye hostility – no more ill will towards anyone for any reason.

The Spirit of God can take possession of the total man. Carnality is suppressed in a justified man. The inner conflict is gone when the old you is crucified. A dead man is exactly that. Dead to the old man. Dead because the Spirit of God crucified and put to death the old man and all of his deeds.

All glory to Christ who rids man of the Old Adam and liberates the soul from all inner conflict. By doing such the child of God can fight the good fight of faith. Can fight the Devil and win. Can be a winner instead of a loser. Can have victory over sin rather than yielding to it.

There is a better life than warring with self. It’s call death to the old man where God’s Grace rids man of all inner conflict and perfect rules the total you. The you can fight with God in control.

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.

  1. Sue C. says:

    This brings to mind, “Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world” and also that becoming a new creation is also a renewing of the mind and that takes time and effort. It isn’t as easy as you make it sound here even though you are right.

    • rickroehm says:

      Christ will preserve you. Grace is more than forgiveness of sins its also God’s keeping power. We are “kept by the power of God through faith in Christ”. Greater is Christ. Glory!

  2. Sounds good. Definitely what I am striving for but I am definitely not there yet.

      Let go and let God. Best move you’ll ever make in life.

      • I was thinking about this post on my walk. I believe that letting go and letting God is sound advice for sure. I’m not sure that I believe that it is possible to live in this world never having inner conflict though. Not as long as we are living in this body at least. For sure we grow from glory to glory but to never have inner conflict? Are you writing this from personal experience?

      • rickroehm says:

        Yes. And God wants all of you too. The fact of the matter is God calls sinners to repent. After they find forgiveness the Spirit reveals “death to the old Adam”. When the saved person dies the Spirit takes over. Simple. The biggest problem most people have is , “I, me, and mine”. Lay it down Sister and He will lift you up. Glorify God.

      • I don’t know. Just doesn’t ring true to me. Doesn’t sound Biblical. Even Paul had internal struggles.

      • rickroehm says:

        Double mindedness causes instability. Single mindedness makes your steadfast and certain. Don’t worry its Biblical to let God have all of you. Christ didn’t come to save part of you – He wants to sanctify the whole you – body, soul, and Spirit entirely….1 Thess. 5:23 Jesus loves you and so does this preacher. Victory is a blessed life.

      • Not trying to be contentious. And I wasn’t referring to giving God my all, just the part about not ever having internal conflict. That’s great if you have reached that level of sanctification, if it does indeed exist. Paul hadn’t, but perhaps some of the other disciples did. I just don’t believe internal conflict always means double-mindedness. If Paul, the writer of so much of the NT could have internal conflict could that not mean that others with pure hearts that are sold out to Jesus can still struggle too?
