SCRIPTURE: “Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.” – Proverbs 14:9
If there is one thing that God hates with perfect hatred, it is sin. And the scripture admonishes us to be like our sinless Father. Matthew 5:48 says, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” It is impossible to like what God hates and grow in Him. Therefore, sin is no something to play with. Sin is our greatest enemy because it opens the door for the devil to come into our lives and wreak havoc.
Sin is so powerful that you cannot overcome it by your strength, so having the confidence in yourself that you can defeat sin is like you are playing with fire. Whoever plays with fire gets burnt; likewise sin, in whatever form, will destroy anyone who indulges in it. Consequently. God tells us to strive to live a holy life. That is, do everything possible to avoid sin. He tells us to ask for forgiveness whenever we commit sin so that we don’t get consumed with its fire. Sin will take you farther away than you wish to travel because, if given a chance, it will take you to that destination that will separate you eternally from God, which is hell fire. That will not be your portion, in the name of Jesus.
The way out is to set our hearts on the things above and not on the things in the world. According to Col. 3:1-3, when you are heavenly minded, you will make the utmost effort to please God seek Him and don’t give up until you find Him. When you are fully preoccupied with pursuing righteousness and refuse to be distracted by the pleasures of the world, you will experience spiritual growth.
A life of sin will impede your spiritual growth and set you on the path to damnation. Do you desire to establish a good relationship with God? There is a way out. Start with 1 John 1: 9: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
- Every seed of sin in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
- The power and fire to overcome sin, overshadow my life, in the name of Jesus.
- I challenge my body with the fire of God, in the name of Jesus.
- Every dark power pulling me towards sin, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Sin shall not overcome me, by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
- Every ladder of sin in my life, catch fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Every good thing I have lost as a result of sin, be restored by the Holy Ghost fire, in the name of Jesus.
