The low of course as we now it is spiritual But I am unspiritualI have been sold as a slave to sin I can not understand my own behavior I fail to carry out the things I want to do and I find myself doing the very things I hate .When I am against my own will That means I have a self that acknowledges that the low is good and so the things behaving that way but sin living in me In fact I now nothing good living in me .I fact that seems to be the rule for every time I want to do good it is something evil that cones to In my Inmost self I dearly love God the low witch my reason dictates That whot makes me a prisoner of the low of sin that lives inside my body What a reached man I am Who will rescue me from this body doomed to death Thanks be to God through jeasus Grist our Lord In short it is I who with my reason serve the low of God and no less I serve in my unspiritual self the low of sin Romans 7 14 /25 That is why I am still fat

    I thank God that through Jesus Christ I have been set free from the law of sin and death and that I now serve Him in righteousness. Sin has no dominion over me as long as I present my body to Him as dead to sin and alive to Christ. Jesus paid the price that I might walk free from the dominion of sin. So now having been set free from sin, and having become a slave of God, I now have my fruit in holiness, and in the end, everlasting life! Praise be to God who always causes me to triumph in Christ Jesus!

My perspective of how I see myself determines my ability to walk in victory. If I continue to see myself as a sinner I will do what that perspective expects. But if I see myself as victorious through the strength of Jesus who lives in me then I will walk through my life enabled through the truth of that perspective.

    We all suffer struggles because we are human. We can pick ourselves up and try to travel in another directions and not follow our own direction. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon What wisdom you have, Sandra! I am comforted by the fact that Paul cried words like these in Romans: "I can not understand my own behavior. I fail to carry out the things I want to do and I find myself doing the very things I hate ." Yet Paul was not under the dominion of sin any more than we are, for in the next chapter he tells us that in Christ we have victory. That is why we are here witnessing each day, isn't it? So others will know that we CAN overcome in spite of our old natures...and like you said...we are tied to our old natures as long as we live on earth. But as long as we stay in fellowship with the Lord, as you do, we have the power to overcome, and one day you and I and our other Christian friends here on SP, will be healthy again. emoticon God is so good to us.
emoticon Bless you my wonderful friend, Joanie emoticon

    Paul understood struggles just like God understands ours. The Word cleanses and convicts.

    Everyday is a struggle an uphill battle of some sorts but I find when I read & meditate on His word day & night the battle has been won! Be encouraged and ask the Father to guard your heart mind & soul day & night. He is listening all day to forgive us of our sins & love us wholeheartedly.

God bless & the battle is not ours it's the Lords!
