Let me begin this discussion today by asking this simple question, “Why is there so much sin in the world today?” The answer is simple, (choice) we choose our actions and the way we live out our lives. Sin came into the world through Adam and Eve, and it has always remained with us until Jesus came and took our sins upon His shoulders and died on the cross in order that we may live a life FREE of SIN.
CHILDREN OF GOD, if you have allowed SIN to enter into your life, and take control of your brand new life, listen up, because I want you to know that every SIN can be overcome. Your life, in its totality, has proceeded from your mind, and your mind is a combination of habits formed and accepted by your mind, which by patient effort, can be modified to any extent, and over which you can gain complete ascendancy and control. When you come into the complete realization of this reality, you will have at once obtained possession of the key which shall open the door to your complete emancipation.
However, emancipation from the ills of life (which is the ills of your mind) is a matter of steady growth from within, and not a sudden acquisition from without. Hourly and daily you must work to train your mind to think stainless thoughts, and to adopt the right dispassionate attitudes, until you have strained out of it the Ideal of your holiest dreams.
Know in your heart that you are truly a Child of God, you are the Sons and daughters of a King and you are Holy, so why are you living a life filled with sin? You sought Jesus out and you found him, He gave you a brand new life, and He lifted you up from the evils of your old sinful life, and now that you’ve found you don’t have to listen to sin tell you what to do, and you have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more of life on the way! Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God’s gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master. (Romans 6:22-23 MSG)
MY MAXIMIZED PRAYER FOR OVERCOMING SIN IN MY LIFE
Heavenly Father, I thank you for blessing me to be able to experience your love, mercy and grace this day. Thank you for your Son Jesus that allowed me to accept your blessings of Salvation. I pray for strength to overcome the sin that has gripped my life, and that is preventing me from enjoying the fruits of prosperity that has been set before me. Heavenly Father I pray for the anointing of the Holy Spirit to lift my mind to a level of maturity that can think and speak with clarity your words of truth that will provide me with complete control over my mind. Free my mind of the constraints that keeps me in bondage and away from the PROSPERITY that you have already provided for me that I have been unable to see. In Jesus name, Amen!
