Smiles, so I was reading a book on a particular day. Its emphasis was on how we can’t just decide to walk away from sin, leaving the cross out of the picture.
And after I read a part describing the blessing of the cross which literarily made me tear and emotional too. I couldn’t help but reflect on the above subject.
So we have a lot of individuals who at some point thought they could just walk away from sin and get on with life. To be sincere, that is a disaster waiting to happen.
Speaking from personal experience, you can’t just take a walk and expect a change. It might seem like you did walk away and you left it behind.
But sin is like a being or spirit with an aider – the devil. And trust me, it won’t just back out from your life, just because you decided to quit the act and engage in some other things instead.
Let’s have a look at this Bible text:
“Now when the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, it roams through waterless (dry, arid) places in search of rest, but it does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when it arrives, it finds the place unoccupied, swept, and put in order. Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and make their home there. And the last condition of that man becomes worse than the first. So will it also be with this wicked generation.”
Matthew 12:43-45 (AMP)
Did you read that text? ❔
It expresses the truth that you can’t just walk away without having to engage a supernatural. The text states how the unclean spirit after it was cast out, came back with 7 other spirits because it came back and saw that the life was still “unoccupied”, though it was “put in order”.
So what is the supernatural we ought to engage?.
The supernatural in whom we have our absolute freedom is, Christ Jesus.
Do read this verse:
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom].
2 Corinthians 3:17 (AMP)
So are you wondering why you have been struggling with getting out of that sin that keeps on creeping back into your life?. And it has been like a rise and fall tide, all this while.
The answer is – you have been trying to fight a supernatural battle with your physical; human efforts which can’t in any way help you. Stop engaging the physical in a supernatural battle as a dear friend would always say to me.
We need to be aware that it is only in Christ Jesus that we can achieve all things. And your desired healing can only become “whole” and “perfect” in Him. Because when it comes to Him, it comes with a whole new you!. A new heart and a new spirit.
Let’s read this text together:
Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].
2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMP)
Walk away from sin but walk right into God’s Mercy which we have in Christ Jesus, giving us a new life and a complete transformation. 💃
He alone is a force that no “age-long” sin or bondage can withstand. Because He is the only “Ancient of days”. The mighty one in battle and the “Lord of Host”. He controls all things – powers and authorities.
Do read these Bible verses:
Lift up your heads, O gates, And be lifted up, ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in. Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O gates, And lift them up, ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in. Who is [He then] this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory [who rules over all creation with His heavenly armies]. Selah.
Psalms 24:7-10 (AMP)
**Let your walk away from sin, lead you right into the wholesome arms of our Lord Jesus Christ **
Wishing you a blessed and fruitful new week. ❤
Jesus loves you – Always. ❤
