I remember when I used to ask myself what was more greater, the things God has in store for me or the things I can't let go off? Obviously I would always say the things of God were greater (because they are). But then, I was always left with another question that was just as important: if the things of God are greater, why then is it so hard for me to let go of the things I need to let go of?
I learned the answer to that question after many, many failures. Loaded down with guilt, I had to realize that the flesh doesn't die just because you want it to; it dies as you continue to renew your mind.
When we begin to renew our minds we go beyond "just wanting to change", we begin to transform ourselves.
The word transform means to make a thorough or dramatic change in the form, appearance, or character of something.
Not only do we begin to move away from certain behaviors and ways, we begin to change the way we think and the way we feel about them also.
This process cannot be done just through self will! It's important to remember that! It's a process we must be committed to daily and it involves studying and applying the word of God to our lives, praying for strength and wisdom and most of all being filled with the Holy Spirit!
Will you fall? Yes. But if you stay committed to the process you'll begin to notice strength and victory in areas of your life you used to be defeated in.
God loves you!
Give your life to Christ
Say Lord I confess my sins, and I make You my Lord and Savior.
