“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not” (Roman 7:18 KJV). Many of us have desired to do well while addicted. However, more often not the of our action was an act of selfish miss behaving. While under the influence of addiction the will to do right and the true knowledge of what is right is something we could not obtain. But in Christ we can be lead a new life and find the truth of God “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come” (John 16:13 KJV). In Christ, our actions and our will can become selfless and not selfish.
Thought for: what is the motivation behind my actions our own desires or the will of God.
Prayer for the week of 1/1/2017: Lord help me to be Spirit lead in my actions
