She has given her life to Christ severally and fallen each time, so she asked me after telling me how she couldn’t go a day with immorality. She said, pastor, its hard, do you mean I will never have sex till am married? How it’s that possible and how are my going to achieve that? I have tried to stop severally but fail to do so, instead it gets worse. This too might be your question, how are my going to stop lying, stealing, masturbation, drinking, cheating your spouse etc. Don’t think on how to be spiritual clean for one year, think on how to be spiritually clean for one day; today.
God provides the grace not to sin just for a day only (Give us this day our daily bread mt. 6:11). Stop thinking on how not to sin tomorrow but just think on how not to sin today because God’s holiness provision is just for today. Christ told His disciples to ask God to give to them their daily provision (bread), yes, ask for the daily provision of God (grace) to see you through life’s temptations just for today. Every morning consciously ask for the grace to get things right, consciously ask for the grace not to fall into the pressure of sin. Christ didn’t say God would give us provisions for a year because by that, we won’t need to ask Him till next year but Christ said God would only give us for today because by that we shall always be appearing in His presence everyday.
Someone ones asked me, how come you’ve kept yourself all these years, I said by keeping myself just today and another today and another today and I achieve that by meeting with God every day in devotion. No sin today; then ask God for the grace not to sin today. Ask God for the grace to get things right today and you won’t know
when you’ve lived the rest of your life pleasing God and not yourself.
God bless you
