Oh Lord, help us to not be led by our lustful passions. We need Your hand in our lives to not fall victim to sin and death. Without You, we are like sitting ducks to the fiery darts to the enemy. I hate it when I fall and go against Your will. I feel like I have failed You each time. You know the things I have done and I am so sorry to have sinned against You, God. I could have done a better job to live in Your presence, but I went off and did my own things. So hear my confessions and know that my heart is for You now. Forgive me, Lord. Help me to live up to Your standards that I might do what is right. Lead me from temptation, that I might be led by Your mighty hand instead of myself. I believe in You, Lord. You are my strong tower. I cannot fall if You are before me. My life is Yours and not my own. Give me guidance and direction. I will follow You. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Galatians 5:16-18 (KJV)
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
You know the fruits of the Spirit are a part of your life when your lustful passions are tamed by God’s mighty hand.
