The flesh is guaranteed to fail you! But the Spirit of God will never fail you!

Romans 7:21, 23, 25
So I’ve discovered this truth: Evil is present with me even when I want to do what God’s standards say is good. However, I see a different standard at work throughout my body. It is at war with the standards my mind sets and tries to take me captive to sin’s standards which still exist throughout my body. I thank God that our Lord Jesus Christ rescues me! So I am obedient to God’s standards with my mind, but I am obedient to sin’s standards with my corrupt nature.

Choices #FoodForThought

James 4:17

Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.

There are many tough decisions that we make everyday. A lot of times we simply weigh the pros and cons. However, the problem with that approach is the beneficiary is you.

Shifting your thinking away from “how can I benefit?” will allow you to invite God into the choices you make. Remember, a good decision today that benefits others but cost you something will bring peace to you now with long-term benefits.

Though your words may fail, your intercessor will never fail you!

Romans 8:26-27 

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness, for we do not know how we should pray, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with inexpressible groanings. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes on behalf of the saints according to God’s will.
