PREVAILING VOICE DAILY
Topic: THE BATTLE WITHIN ( part 1 )
Text : Romans 7:15-17
15; For I do not understand my own actions [I am baffled, bewildered]. I do not practice or accomplish what I wish, but I do the very thing that I loathe [which my moral instinct condemns].
16; Now if I do [habitually] what is contrary to my desire, [that means that] I acknowledge and agree that the Law is good (morally excellent) and that I take sides with it.
17; However, it is no longer I who do the deed, but the sin [principle] which is at home in me and has possession of me.
It’s good to know that the Lord is doing great things through PREVAILING VOICE DAILY, feed back shows God is meeting needs through this medium. I am starting another series of teaching today.
Have you wondered why we record some ungodly practices among Christians even among ministers. At one time or the other you just feel disappointed about a particular brother or sister you hold in high esteem, the cause of disappointment is what I begin to share today, but as I begin to share I wouldn’t want you to look at other people’s lives but yours.
Our text today is the letter of Apostle Paul to the Roman Church, in verse 15, he started by saying ‘ For I do not understand my own actions. I do not practice what I wish..’ This is the state of many Christians; they profess Christ, they desire to live holy, but alas, they fall into sin time and again. I once met a brother who look like a believer outward, but as we got to talk, he told me how terrible he was, how every now and then he fell into fornication in the real act, though he desired to stop, there was obviously a battle within him, he had gone for deliverance on occasions, Apostle Paul was also at that state.
It is purely the battle between your flesh and your spirit, you must understand that you are made up of spirit, soul, body ( flesh ). The body is the weakest part of you, it is corruptible, the devil tempts your body, it is your body that desires sin, just as it desires food. The body of man responds and reacts to stimulants of sin, how many times have you desired to conquer anger, and it looks impossible?
There is usually a struggle within you, after committing sin, you feel bad and sometimes you cry, that is the battle I am talking about, I am glad to announce to you that you are coming out of that realms, there is provision for victory. The power in the blood of Jesus can destroy any yoke of sin, perhaps you have been addicted to any particular sin, you can be free and you will be free. Masturbation is sin no matter how anyone explains it, you can be free from drinking alcohol, from smoking, sleeping around etc.
I am just laying foundation today, I will continue next Friday, till then I want to give you this assignment; pray this prayer everyday;
- By the power in the blood of Jesus, Lord, break the yoke of sin in my life, mention that particular sin, addiction. Everyday before you go out and at your leisure.
