Oh Lord, come and set us free from every bad habit, addiction, and other sinful ways. I don’t wish to sin willfully against You, God, and I pray that others in the faith feel the same way. Help us not fall victim to different sins, while also justifying them because of how they make us feel inside. Truly, Satan wants people to feel this way in order to put a stronghold on their lives. But Lord, You are stronger than any evil force that may come at us. All of these wicked and abominable temptations can have no effect on us if we are living for You. When I live each day for You I feel less tempted to do evil. You have put Your Spirit in me and I am able to live a life that pleases You. Thank You, Lord. I am not perfect in any way but am grateful that You have given me a mighty defense against the enemy. Today, You have put the ninth commandment on my mind and I am so grateful. I used to say, “just kidding”, all the time to everyone around me, but now I know that this is lying and I resist saying it at all costs. You are the one that helps me not say this, but to also not lie in the first place. Thank You, God, for changing me and for giving me new desires. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Exodus 20:16 (KJV)
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
All liars shall have their part in the lake of fire. This does not have to be you. You can be set free in the name of Jesus.
