I can do all things in He who strengthens me. Romans 8:11, Philippians 4:13.

Romans 8:11
"But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you."
The same power that raised Jesus from the dead is available to you. Do you realize that? The defining moment of the world and all the power that was behind His glorious resurrection is for you. That is what Romans 8:11 says. Are you living life defeated by sin? Friend, seize the moment! Now is the time! Never before have you been more able to live life to its fullest. The potential of your Creator is dwelling in you. The Holy Spirit, given to you by Jesus wants to perform a work in you so amazing you will never be the same. Victory has been declared ... are you taking part in it?
Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." NKJV
You are being perfected. As you allow God to work in you, you are being conformed to the image of Christ. That's powerful! Friend, you can do all things through Jesus, including overcoming that sin that you keep going back to. Stop feeding it. Feed your spiritual nature. Going to church, personal time in the Bible, prayer and serving others is the way to grow in God and these things are products of the Holy Spirit working in you. You don't owe sin anything, but you owe Jesus for dying for you. You were purchased at a high price. Jesus changed your life. Live that change.
Life Lesson: You have resurrection power available to you to overcome sin in your life.
Dear Father,
Thank You that I do not have to be a slave to sin, but can be a bond-servant of righteousness through You. Please forgive me for my sins and give me the power to live for You. Help me to grow in You through fellowship, study, prayer and by loving and serving others. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Living to tell what He died to say,

My Comments: Daily I am reminded by my Lord and Savior to lean not on my own understanding nor my own strength to do anything or bear anything. God the Father of us all wants to teach us all to lean on Him. We can do nothing of ourselves and nothing we can do other than accepting the Sacrifice of Jesus the Christ will remove our sin and bring us into the glory of God or fill us with His Holy Spirit. So  very simple yet there is a world dieing that will not hear the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ the Son of God, God Incarnate/made man.
When we accept Jesus as our Savior, when we accept His sacrifice on the Cross, when we acknowledge our sin and fall before the living God; then He can use us, change us, live in us and His power the Resurrection Power will flow into and through us to accomplish His will in and through us.
His Resurrection Power conquers sin, saves people and nations and will change the world ! We make the choice to believe Him when He says "...none can come to the Father except through Him.." We confess our sin, recant the world and cloth ourselves in His heavenly garments. We are "Born Again" and one with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
With this gift we have responsibility because then we become the Children of God and as His children we show His power, do works that bring glory to Him, cause His name to be revered and praise and glorify Him by all we say, think and do. These actions do not save as we are already saved when we have confessed Jesus as our Savior and follow the One True God of Jacob, Issac and Abraham who came to earth as a babe in a manager and was crucified at Calvary on the Cross for our that we might live in eternity with Him. Oh, glorious day when Jesus comes again for His Church, His Bride to be caught us with Him in the clouds. My heart pants for that day. May yours as well my friend.
Abba we praise You and glorify You for all You do. We do nothing for it is only Your strength that accomplishes things through us. It is Your words that sooth through us or edify when we open our mouths. May it be Jesus others see when they see us and may we not follow after the world and her ways nor fall into the traps she sets for Your children. Help us Father to rely on You to seek Your face, Your Word, Your desire before undertaking anything.May all we do be in Your precious Name and for Your glory. Thank You Abba for sending Your Son for us that we may be one with You as Your children. Amen
