What I Don’t Understand About Myself

Do you know you? Do you understand yourself? Do I know me? Do I understand myself? Have you ever been in this kind of imbroglio? Have you ever tried to ask “Who exactly am I,” as a result of some actions you found yourself in that you never knew you had capacity for.
 
Well, we all have been there.
 
I have been there. So many people have been there. Apostle Paul had been there.
 
Rom 7:15 (KJV)  

For that which I do, I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
 
You are born again, a bonafide child of God, you know what is right, you have been taught severally, but then you find yourself doing the opposite!
 
This is where Apostle Paul found himself.
 
Amplified Version says
 
Rom 7:15 (AMPC)  
For I do not understand my own actions [ I am baffled, bewildered ]. I do not practice or accomplish what I wish, but I do the very thing that I loathe [ which my moral instinct condemns ].
 
In verse 24, Apostle Paul expressed his frustration.
 
Rom 7:24 (KJV)  

O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
 
The Message Translation says:
 
Rom 7:24 (MSG)  
I've tried everything and nothing helps. I'm at the end of my rope. Is there no one who can do anything for me? Isn't that the real question?
 
Where is the way out?
 
The answer is in Romans 8:2.
 
Bare in mind that when the Bible was written originally, it was not in chapter and verses. So, there is a flow.
 
Rom 8:2-3 (KJV)  
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.  [3]  For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
 
The Message Translation nailed it. See it:
 
Verse 2 first:
 
Rom 8:2 (MSG)  
A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.
 
Glory to God. There is a new power in operation when you embrace this life of God. You are no longer under the tyranny of the duo of sin and death! Glory to God!
 
The Spirit of life in Christ clear the air and secured your freedom from sin!
 
Then verse 3 in Message Translation says:
 
Rom 8:3 (MSG)  

God went for the jugular when he sent his own Son. He didn't deal with the problem as something remote and unimportant. In his Son, Jesus, he personally took on the human condition, entered the disordered mess of struggling humanity in order to set it right once and for all. The law code, weakened as it always was by fractured human nature, could never have done that. The law always ended up being used as a Band-Aid on sin instead of a deep healing of it.
 
God went for the jugular. The sin problem has been resolved. Habitual sin should no longer call the shots in your life. Jesus took on the human condition and came into our world to set everything right.
 
You are free!
 
Free from the power of sin and death! Glory to God!
 
Yesterday we were talking about oral. It need not have power over you.
 
You don’t have to be hopelessly addicted to sexual perversion. You are free.
 
Embrace this new power in operation and understand your rights in Him!

I am free from the tyranny of sin
 
PRAYER FOR THE DAY

Lord, grant me the grace to overcome dangerous habits

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY 

Rom 7:25 (MSG)  
The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does. He acted to set things right in this life of contradictions where I want to serve God with all my heart and mind, but am pulled by the influence of sin to do something totally different.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY

Pray in the Spirit

Job 38 - 39
