Lover’s Lane, Prince Edward Is, Canada – Sheryl
“For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.” (Romans 7:15)
Lord, I feel like Paul in Romans when he cried out, “I don’t do what I want to do and do what I don’t want.” I still don’t choose best in what I eat and how late I go to bed. Please deliver me from my members waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in them. (Rom. 7) I know there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ and that the life in the Spirit sets me free from sin and death. Please help me not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit for I know that is the way of life and peace. (Rom.8) Help me, Lord, to put on the breastplate of Your righteousness and eat and sleep according to Your design for me. What would You say to me, my Lord?
I see I am following You today through dense vegetation where You are hacking out the way for us. We have been this way before so the path must quickly overgrow.
“If you don’t keep the pathway open to your destination or goal by often walking it, it does close over. Weeds, vines, stumbling blocks litter the path.”
I sure do identify with Paul.
“I only have the best in mind for you.”
Please help me to be strengthened by Your armor. Help me to be fully convinced of the truth and to choose life.
“I will remind you but you must choose.”
Please strengthen my will. I want to will to do Your good pleasure. And I sure want the high blood pressure to go away and to have the physical and mental energy to carry on in Your plan.
“I help clear the weeds but you have to walk the path.”
