The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace. Psalm 29:11 NKJV
Today is a new day. Yesterday is done and gone. Tomorrow is only a possibility. All that it may or may not bring is in the hands of Almighty God.
Jesus died on a Cross so sin would not have power over us. How can sin have power over us? If you have ever had an addiction you already understand the power of sin. It starts as a choice. It becomes an obsession.
Sin takes control. We become locked into a vicious cycle of sin shame and guilt. It robs us of our time energy and resources. It strips away our peace and joy. It destroys our relationships. Sin leads to loss of freedom and can result in untimely death!
Are you struggling with sin? God wants to set you free. He has already made a way of escape for you. You must partner with Jesus. You must take some practical steps to receive freedom from bondage to sin.
Call out to Jesus from the depths of your soul. Ask the Lord to set you free. Do not practice the sin that has put you into bondage today. Yesterday is gone. It is over and done with. You cannot change it. Tomorrow belongs to Jesus. Trust Him with it.
Sin is anything that separates us from Jesus. It separates us from His call on our lives.
God separated time into days so each could be a new beginning for us. Today is your day to step out in faith. You will not be alone. Jesus will be with you. Jesus will give you the strength you need to accomplish His purpose for your life.
Paul said; one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Paul was a legalist a blasphemer and a murderer. The grace of God transformed him into an Apostle an Evangelist and a Missionary. Paul turned his back on his sins failures and mistakes. Paul surrendered to God’s will for his life. He served Jesus wholeheartedly!
Sin does offer a “payoff” or “reward.” The consequences come later. They last much longer than the “payoff” and far outweigh the “reward.”
The passing pleasures of sin pale in comparison to the eternal rewards God has in store for people who love Him and are called according to His purposes!
God has a plan and a purpose for you. Step out in faith. Trust Jesus to give you the strength to carry out His will for your life and the wisdom to live in peace and prosperity of spirit forever!
