Overcoming Sin

I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Psalm 32 vs. 5

Christians sin daily. Sometimes presumptiously. Went back to an old way that God had previously freed them from. Sometimes the guilt they bear is so great they stop walking with God. Fall out of fellowship. But it is at times like these we should really cling to Him & hold firmly His hand.

But how can the guilty mind grasp that. "I knew better but I did it any way; I've caused so much pain; I made someone else sin; Even if God forgives me, I can't forgive me; I'm not strong enough to walk with God, I keep messing up!" Ever felt like this, maybe worse? thought it didn't make sense because you are so imperfect?

Well turning back from God is EXACTLY what the enemy wants us to do when we give into sinful temptation. Do we want to give satan anymore victory over our lives than he already got? I'm sure noone wants to keep fighting the deceiver over & over again about the same weakness. How do we move on with God after an episode like giving in to temptation? Whether it was one time or repeatedly, God is waiting for you.

Tell Him exactly what you did even though He already knows. We must admit when we are wrong. Ask Him to forgive you & accept that forgiveness. Many times we dwell on things God has already forgiven us for & live in defeat. Jesus can use anyone for anything. All sin does to a believer is make them feel worthless & believe the lies that the enemy would rather have us believe so we can't accomplish God's perfect will for our lives.
God can remove any influence of sin from your life no matter what it is, if we sincerely ask Him.
John chp 4 vs. 13 & 14 " Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."

Don't be defeated by your weaknesses, confess them & ask for help & definately continue in the walk of faith.
