There are days when my emotions consume me and I become a prisoner to them like I’m not even saved. I plead with God to walk ahead of me through the path my emotions tempt me to take so that He could knock down each obstacle cleverly placed to destroy me.
Can you ask God to do that? Can you ask Him to save you from yourself? Could you ask God to be with you when you’re about to make bad decisions? Taboo ain’t it, Christians?
I’ve always been taught that sin removes God from your life and practically leaves you abandoned to your flesh and forsaken to the world.
Heb 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Heb 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
“I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” Am I not human. Can I boldly say, “I will not fear what I shall do to myself”?
Oh, did you already condemn me – accusing me for taking that verse out of context? Of course you did you self-righteous, cold-hearted person.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Did you make it this far and skillfully gathered a case against me? That I may have fallen victim to the world?
That’s okay. It’s expected. Everything is taken out of context these days. Heck, even saying “NO” can somehow be interpreted as saying “Yes”.
There’s just this power in having LIVED the Love of Christ to confirm scripture to be true as it is written. If you’ve never needed him, you’ll never know Him. Only those who are BOLD enough to expose their own sin to a Holy God will see Grace. Grace is only understood when received
