07/22/19: Romans 7:14-8:8; Psalm 18:1-15; Proverbs 19:24-25

In the following verses I think Paul captures the reality of the battle we all face when confronted with sin.  Satan is a master of deceit and in my opinion he searches us until he finds at least one weakness and then works to make us a “prisoner”  to that weakness.  And once a prisoner there is only one escape — to humble ourselves and our rationalizations and turn to Jesus Christ through prayer and reading His word.  Sounds easy — but real work and dedication is needed to stay within this freedom.

Romans 7: 21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
