So how do you know if you are failing the battle? Better question how do you know if you actually want to win? Some of you might even say does that even matter?
Yes, yes it matters. Even though Jesus Christ has shed His blood for all of us, (Thank You Lord!!), casting away all our sins, past, present, future… We still must repent, and ask for forgiveness. It is the same for growth.
Start by getting honest w yourself. Get honest w the Lord, Praise God! Of course I can only peal this back a bit in a devotional, there is many many layers we actually need to work through. I do encourage you to start and remember in order to grow and have TOTAL VICTORY we need to first get honest, clean out all the cobwebs and negative re-runs playing in your head, and get in shape. So let's prep for the visible battles, the seen battles. Just in case you didn't know, yes there are considerable battles that are NOT seen.
I am suggesting that you get and be obedient, being a victim is NOT in alignment w the Lord. Not claiming victory, not having faith, is NOT in alignment w the LORD, nor w the WORD, nor w the HOLY SPIRIT. OMG being a victim is a big fat SIN. No wonder you aren't winning the battle!!! You might think you aren't being a victim, look at it this way; by choosing to not have victory over that battle, whoops you chose to be a victim!
“Do not continue offering or yielding your bodily members [and faculties] to sin as instruments (tools) of wickedness. But offer and yield yourselves to God as though you have been raised from the dead to [perpetual] life, and your bodily members [and faculties] to God, presenting them as implements of righteousness.”
Romans 6:13 AMP
“Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.”
Romans 6:13-14 NIV
