If the Truth is put in Perspective for me, then what happens for me? I am able to see a clear path in front of me.
In the Book of Job, Chapter 32, verse 8, he said “But there is a spirit in man and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.”
Sometimes a struggle with sin is difficult, but what do I perceive?
Will I always struggle with this sin? Will it always be difficult?
How will I see a clear path in front of me?
The inspiration of Almighty God gives understanding to the spirit of man.
There is victory over sin in its Weaken state.
God commands us to die(to put it to death) to sin.
But it would seem that we want to hold onto the sin that is Dear to us.
In Romans, Chapter 8, verse 13, the Apostle Paul said "If we live after the Flesh(the inclinations of sinful nature) we shall die.
To continue verse 13…But if we through the Spirit Mortify the sinful deeds of our sinful nature we shall Live.
Jesus said in Luke Chapter 18, verse 1 " that men ought always to Pray and not to Faint". In Matthew 26, verse 41 He said “Watch and Pray, that Ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing but the Flesh(sinful nature) is weak”.
The spirit of man could be willing to obey Christ but his sinful nature is weak.
Sin itself could have such authority in his life that he cannot obey Christ and without the power of Grace sin will continue to have authority.
But what God is looking for is a “willing spirit” to pray to Him for the Grace to obey Him.
And that Grace He bestows upon a “willing spirit” has the authority to weaken the power of sin.
In the Second Letter of Peter Chapter 2, verse 9 Peter said “the Lord Knoweth how to Deliver the godly out of temptations”.
The Spirit of God upon Paul in Hebrews 4:16 said for us, "to come Boldly to the Throne of Grace that we may obtain Mercy and Find Grace to Help in time of Need.
In Galatians 6:9 the Apostle Paul said "And let us not be weary in Well-doing : For in Due Season we shall Reap, if we Faint(to lose courage:give up)not.
The Apostle Paul said in Romans 8:13 to Mortify sin which means to put to death sinful deeds.The dying of sin weakens by degrees within us by Prayer.
Jesus said in Matthew 26:41 "Watch and Pray that Ye enter not into Temptation.
He said “the spirit(the spirit of man) is Willing but the Flesh(the sinful nature) is weak”.
And Paul said that God advises us…instructs us with the Guidance of His Word "to come boldly to the Throne of Grace to obtain God’s Mercy and to seek that Grace that we will receive from Him to Help in time of Need.
Jesus said “that men ought always to Pray and not to Faint”.
It doesn’t mean that we pray every moment of the day.
What Jesus is saying “Watch and Pray” that Ye enter not into strong temptation.
Watch when strong temptation arises within You and no matter how difficult it is to make the effort to Pray, God said Pray and not to Faint(its means to lose heart:to give up). He said "Come Boldly(with courage) to the Throne of Grace to obtain His Mercy and Seek His Grace to Help in Time of Need.
God’s Spirit upon the Apostle Paul said "Let us not be weary in Well-doing(in praying and doing good). For in due Season we shall Reap(win the victory) if we do not faint.
No matter how difficult sin is…No matter how much authority it has in our lives…No matter how much it controls us…And we find it difficult to obey God…We must Believe when God instructs us in the Guidance of His word…the Gospel…We must Believe what Peter said in his Second Letter Chapter 2, verse 9 “the Lord Knoweth how to Deliver the godly out of temptation”.
In Romans 1:16 Paul said that the Gospel of Christ “it is the Power of God unto Salvation”.
We must Believe in that Power for Our Salvation.
The Apostle Paul said in Romans chapter 7 verse 14:
"For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
Verse 18: For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me, but to do that
which is good is not.
Verse 23: but I see a different law in my members, warring against the law of my mind and bringing me into captivity under
the law of sin which is in my members.
Verse 24: "who shall deliver me out of the body of this death?
Chapter 8 verse 1: There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.
Verse 2: For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the “law of sin and of death”.
(Sin is a power an authority in man that compels him to sin, but the greater the authority of sin in man
the greater is the authority of Grace bestow upon him).
