what I don't want to do
No, I do not have a drinking problem,
but I still sin and do things
that I do not want to do...
and do not do things that
I know I should do.
It is our “human” nature.
“For I do not understand my own actions
[I am baffled, bewildered].
I do not practice or accomplish what I wish,
but I do the very thing that I loathe
[which my moral instinct condemns].”
- Romans 7:15 AMP
It is good that we acknowledge
our sins, bad habits, and addictions...
that is the first step toward healing.
Thankfully we have an intercessor
in Jesus Christ where our sins
were nailed to the cross.
Rather than asking the Lord
what we can we do...
ask Him what He will do?
Acknowledge... pray... obey... and then trust.
I don't know about you
but my human nature
still struggles with the obey
and the trust...
nevertheless, He is working on me
and in me as I continue to grow.
I pray you are allowing Him
to do the same for you.
