Oh Lord, I love You and treasure every moment I have to be with You. The moment I was baptized is when the fire of the Holy Spirit entered me those many years ago, and it has not subsided yet. This was because You wanted to do more than be a part of my life, but to light it up also. There was so much darkness in me in times past, before I gave my life to You. I was on the road to destruction because of my lust, which caused me to commit adultery, fornications, and be addicted to pornography. Surely, I was a slave to sin for most of my life. It wasn’t until I humbled myself and cried out to You in prayer and forgiving me. Something has changed within me. You saw my intentions were real and that I desired to be transformed, and then started a wonderful work in me. Thank You for hearing my prayers and for doing something that I never thought was possible. I thought I was supposed to live a life where I have no control over my flesh, but just feel guilty each time I sin. However, everything is different now. You have put in me a hedge of protection and a sword of faith. I have armor in my life now, and it is because You are with me. My guard is no longer down but raised up to fight against the enemy at all costs. Surely, I did not know how to defeat my addictions and bad habits, but with the Holy Spirit in me, my desires are for You now and not against you. Therefore, I can withstand evil temptations that the devil throws at me, for You are with me. I am not a perfect person, but a person who loves You and wants to only do Your will at all times. Therefore, keep leading me on Your righteous path. I am incapable of walking it on my own. I love You, Lord. You are the way the truth and life. Therefore, I will follow You until the end of my days. Amen.
John 8:24-26 (KJV)
24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
We may not be sinless, but with Jesus in us, we are capable of not sinning. Servants to sin do not have Christ in their lives.
