Do you ever feel trapped by a sin? I am speaking about one particular sin or at least a type of sin attitude or behavior. I certainly know the feeling. Some days I feel like that sin has my spirit in knots. I love reading passages like Romans 7-8, however, to see all that God did to free us from that sin. Paul says that even though the same sin nature lives in us that did before because of the fallen nature of our flesh, the gift of God is that we now have ultimate victory over that sin through Jesus.
I’m sure that we have all had a fear at some time or another of paralysis. Imagine not being able to walk, talk, wave, or grasp. That fear shakes me to my core when I think about how it can rob me of cherished things I have the privilege of sharing with my children. Think now about how much sin could be doing that to you in your walk with the LORD as well.
Is it possible that you are spiritually paralyzed because of some sin that is gripping your own heart? I encourage you to take that to the feet of Jesus today and read this Scripture over that sin. God can and will free you from that grip of despair if you will open up to Him.
In Christ, Bro. Les
