Lord, I did it again

Bible Verse: 2 Peter 2:9

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations…

Lord, I did it again

How many time a day do we say, “Oops I did it again”? Battling with a temptation you just can’t seem to shake? Take heart; it’s a very common problem and a very human one. So many of us have trouble keeping the promises we made
to ourselves and to God regarding those “things” we know we shouldn’t be doing.

When it comes to besetting sins, it seems easier to just follow the course we’ve set and go along with it. Because we look for the fast fix, we tell ourselves that we’ll deal with the guilt, shame, and feelings of separation later. Yet when it’s all over, we wonder if it’s possible to ever be free.

It’s a blessing to serve the kind of God that we do. He has given us a way to escape every temptation, but we have to take it. We need to make the choice to rely on Him and receive His forgiveness. We will never succeed, unless we believe with ALL our heart that whatever temporary gratification we obtain is nothing compared to the abundant life He has prepared for us.

Don’t let anything or anyone sway you from the purpose God has set for you. Take heart, for your victory is sure. If you do fail, don’t fall into the trap of condemning yourself. If you really want to let go of the burden of past mistakes, go directly
to Jesus — the only one who can change your life and give you what your soul is really in need of.
