Little foxes could be those habits you’ve been struggling with.
You’re tired of indulging in them, yet you can’t seem to stop
You think you’ve got personal problems.
A lot of therapies, prescriptions and suggestions have been given on how best to stop it and the list goes on. You’ve tried, and now you’re fed up.
Because of the nature of sin that came into the world through the first man- Adam, you are not entirely at fault for having the temptations and desires for the things of the flesh
But when you sit and do nothing about it, allowing the works of the flesh to overwhelm you, then that’s a big problem…. Now you need to sound the alarm.
- Give up
Make up your mind and kill the old nature in you. It’s interesting to note that by the help of the Spirit of God, you’re empowered to do anything that’s in-line with HIS word. This point is one of such 🙂
Stop running helter-skelter; walk in the Spirit, be governed by the principles of Christ and put them to practice. By doing this, you’ll substitute the walks of the flesh for the fruits of the Spirit. Yeah, the fruits of the Spirit will become your attributes.
- Be accountable
Most times ‘the power of sin is in secrecy’. When you secretly stay away or stay indoors to indulge in the wrong habits, you’re giving life to such habits to thrive.
- Take stern actions
The secret bad habits you’ve made to become your hobbies can land you a freeway to hell someday, so take actions today and stop playing with fire. From Matt. 5:29, Jesus made it clear that you should be responsible for handling and doing-away with anything within your control that is a potential risk to your making it into heaven.
That sounded rather harsh right? Then ask yourself this:
“What good does it do for people to win the whole world yet lose their lives”? Mark 8:36
