I thank God that He knows my heart. He knows I want to change. His grace covers me each time I fall short. When some sins just seem like they wont let me go, I look back to see how far I have come. Seeing how far I still need to go hurts but keeps me humble. I am not enslaved to sin. God says I have been set free. I have set my heart to believe that truth over the lie that sin will forever control my life. I will never be perfect this side of heaven, but my heart for change will be constant.
Do you ever have the same struggle of feeling enslaved? Of feeling like God is not hearing your cries for freedom? I would love to pray with you. It is when my heart grows weary that I know I am doing too much in my own strength and I need to be reminded from Where my help comes from.
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
Lord, the power in Your name alone sends demons into trembling fear. Why would I think for one second that You will leave me in this sin? That You arent strong enough or love me enough to remove it? Your word tells me that what You have started in me You are good to finish. The stories of the bible teach me patience in waiting for promises to come to pass. Together we will conquor every sin I bring to You and even the ones I didnt even recognize. My flesh may war against me, but You, Lord, have already claimed victory. You will tear down each and every lie. I dont always understand Your ways but there is one truth I can always run back to and grab hold of: You are good. You are good! Your ways are meant for good, and what You mean for good will always turn to good no matter how bad it may feel right now. You, Lord, are good. Thank You for new mercies every day. I love You, I need You. Come into our hearts today and renew the Spirit within us. Thank You, Lord. In Christ name I pray, Amen
