Long time no see! Well I cannot really see you! Nevertheless, I have returned! Back to hopefully encourage and give some wisdom.
S. satan’s I. intuitive N. navigation
How many of us fall into temptation? How many of us do things, create habits, then wish we would’ve never done them?
Everyone should raise their hand! All of us have. However we do not fully understand the dangers when we do this. Sin, or Satan’s Intuitive Navigation allows Satan, or the ugly one as one of my professors calls him, to locate us.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN E?
I MEAN that when we indulge in sin, we are no longer covered by the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus hides us, and protects us from the schemes of the enemy. When we expose ourselves to sin, it allows the enemy to track us and know our every move. That is why we should always strive to be pure, as Christ desires so that we can always be and stay covered.
The beginning of uncovering started in the garden:
Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.
This excerpt from Genesis is a small example of what sin does, and it allows the enemy to know where we are. Once we get into sin, and are located then the enemy can play with the mind and delay things that God has for us. The enemy cannot take anything, but we give it away when we sin!
The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, he wants to steal your peace, kill your destiny and destroy your relationship with God, but the only way for it to happen is through sin!
I am not saying we should be perfect, but we should strive for it through the strength that Christ gives us. When we are in obedience to God, and following his precepts we are then covered. Covered in the blood of the lamb which protects us. God does not want us to get hurt, he wants to keep us hidden from the enemy the blood of Jesus puts us in stealth mode when it comes to the enemy.
The question I have for you today is: Are you covered?
Are you walking in obedience to God, have you asked God to reveal hidden sin?!
I know it gets hard, and sometimes in sin we create habits we cannot break but God can break it!
James 5:16 says: Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
We have to confess if we want to get better! Confess to a team who is trustworthy who can pray for you, and hold you accountable, YOU NEED TO BE COVERED!
God wants to cover you, but he is holy and Sin is unacceptable! He is light and darkness cannot stay when he is in the place, that is why we are to be without sin, that is why Jesus died on the cross so that when we mess up and are saved his blood covers us, but that does not include intentional sin, sin that we know we shouldn’t do and keep doing! God looks at the heart, he knows you better than you know yourself.
Sometimes we have to give us whats comfortable to get what God has for us, but its worth it, the cost of the covering is worth it.
My prayer is that you would open your heart to God, lay down every sin, repent, ask Jesus into your heart, or if your already saved ask God for strength, for guidance and for him to cover you again if you have fallen into temptation. God’s love will flood you and cover you when you do these things with a sincere heart, turn from evil and do good…God DESIRES you, someone in the world needs you because you have a testimony for the nations…
