Good morning, Family:
Have you ever been in a season, or time in your life, where your spirit was full of the Lord and you were ready to face the world? You and God were in fellowship every day. Then you did something to get off track in your spiritual routine, with the Lord, and it left you open to the attack of the enemy and the desires of your flesh.
This is why we must die to ourselves daily. Otherwise, our fleshly carnal nature will try to take over. It is only through the power of the risen Savior that we have the ability to overcome sin. We were born into sin, through Adam, but those of us who call on Jesus dont stay that way. We are born into a new life with Christ.
We must get out of our own way. It is not a weakness or a crutch to call on Jesus. It it by His name that we are saved. Humble yourself and ask God to Deliver You.
This is what Paul said:
New Living Translation (NLT)
21 I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. 22 I love God’s law with all my heart. 23 But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. 24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? 25 Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.

When I look back over my life and reflect on the things God brought me out of, I am in complete awe of the loving Father that He is!
Growing up I was very shy. I despised this trait for years. It caused people to avoid me and even caused me to feel discomfort interacting with others even when I really wanted to. I wanted desperately to interact with other people and feel comfortable being myself. This is a battle I continue to deal with, daily. I relate shyness to being a thorn my flesh. I believe that this thorn is to help push me beyond my comfort and selfishness. God will do whatever He needs to do to keep us in His will. My journey has caused me to fall in love with Jesus. No one was there and understood my pain, God did! The moment I called on Jesus, He saved my life! I would not be here today and in my right mind if it were not for God. He delivered me from myself!
