“I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do — this I keep on doing. 20Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. 21So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22For in my inner being I delight in God's law; 23but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. 24What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25Thanks be to God — through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin”. -Rom.7:15-25
The above is the testimony of Apostle Paul. Then understand that you are not alone in the battle to overcome and tame the innate weakness of the FLESH, the knowledge that the devil has about our spiritual NAKEDNESS, the daily struggle to live according to the almighty’s standards and statutes when we become born-again and decide always to worship Him in ‘spirit and in truth’.
This daily dilemma of promising God TODAY never to sin EVER again, only to RETURN IN THE MORNING to your vomit! Though Adam knew God said “DO NOT EAT OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL”, he went ahead anyway and took the fruit thereof from Eve like a sheep being led to slaughter, HE ATE!
Take courage continue to assert your stand for CHRIST ALWAYS but stand strong also against iniquity leaning on the UNDERSTANDING OF THE LORD for He cannot behold it and you shall surely overcome, in the mighty name of our LORD and SAVIOUR Jesus CHRIST.
