ℳαηηα ḟøґ тℌℯ Ðα¥ : Many saints who are careful to confess their sins to God in order to keep their conscience clear, find it disappointing and questionable when they are not able to overcome certain recurring sins. Submitting to God through confessing our sin is the first step and resisting the devil to make him flee from us is the next step (James 4:7). If we do step one, Satan has no legal rights over our lives. But because Satan and his demonic cohorts are tyrants, we should use the step two by confessing to Satan the testimony of our mouth to see victory over the bondage cycle of deception (Rev 12:11). Both these steps complement each other in making us live a victorious abundant life that overcomes sin. When we do the step two, God has promised not to allow sin have dominion over us (Rom 6:14). To get grounded in the sin-confession-resist cycle sometimes takes time and at other times it happens instantly. The bottom line is, do not give up resisting the deception of the bondage of sin. God is faithful not to allow you to be tempted beyond your ability to resist it, but with the temptation that comes each time, he will give you a way out to escape the sin cycle through his mercies and grace (1 Cor 10:13). GOD ALWAYS HELPS THOSE WHO SINCERELY HATE SIN AND WANT TO OVERCOME IT. APPROACHING GOD'S THRONE OF GRACE DOES TWO THINGS, ONE IT RELEASES GOD'S MERCIES OF FORGIVENESS FOR A CLEAR CONSCIENCE AND BOLDNESS BEFORE GOD AND MEN, THE NEXT THING IT EMPOWERS THE PERSON TO BE FILLED WITH A OVERCOMING POWER OVER SIN (HEB 4:16). May God help us all to live this victorious abundant life that overcomes sin consistently for the GLORY OF GOD! Much Blessings....... |..<(+_([ www.apostolicrevelation.blogspot.in ] )_+>..|..
