Oh Lord, I pray that I will continue following You until the end of time. Keep my paths straight that I may not fall victim to Satan’s schemes again. His temptations have done me over one too many times and I feel terrible each time I have fallen. You have heard my cries and my pleadings for forgiveness and mercy. If I have fallen into sin, then I have failed You. This breaks my heart just thinking it. Therefore, I have built myself up in Your armor, of Lord. I have a way out of every temptation now, for You are with me. Though the devil still comes and tries me, I am able to fight against Him and win the battle. Thank You, God. Even a few days ago, I was looking up a picture about heaven and a pornographic picture showed up. It so discussed me that I had to click out of the window immediately. Now, I remember in years past, that this would never have happened. I would have justified clicking on the picture and justified my actions. Thankfully, Lord, Your Spirit has come inside of me. I can now see the goodness of this world and the evils of this world all the same. And as You have helped me understand that sin cannot enter heaven, I no longer wish to willfully sin also. And not only that, God, it is You who wills me to live differently. Because I trust in You every day, hour, minute, and second, I am a new person. I have been reborn in the Spirit. Thank You, Jesus, for saving a wretch like me. I am different because you have made me different. I love You, God. Amen.
2 Corinthians 3:16-18 (KJV)
16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
As Christians, we turn our lives over to Christ willingly that His Spirit may dwell with us instead of the evils of this world.
