So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin. ” (Romans‬ ‭7‬:‭25‬ NLT)

Former Luzerne County (Pennsylvania) Judge Mark Ciavarella was found guilty on felony corruption charges. The 61-year-old judge is heading to federal prison for 28 years for an apparent prison kick-back scheme and possible tax evasion of over $1,000,000. Who would’ve thought it…

Apparently the Apostle Paul did. He knew what was right and wanted to do it. But even with good intentions, he also knew the power of temptation and how prone we all are to fall for it. Desire does not always translate to obedience, especially when we want to do the things we’re not supposed to!

As you walk your spiritual journey, understand that anytime you are in charge, you will always blow it. We know to do right, yet we often fail by faulty willpower. It then requires us to be dependent on God to help us say “No!” because we cannot on our own. Give God the chance to help you be strong, especially where you fail the worst! You are loved to overcome today!
