As we grow in Christ, we find many choices we made in our past were incorrect and unhealthy. The choices we made pertaining to what we allowed to “feed us” needed to be reversed by making the right choices in these areas.
Through our eyes, ears and mouth we processed and allowed things to enter our beings that became difficult habits to break. God, through fasting and prayer, enables us to make choices that glorify Him and help us — not harm us. We learn to make better choices when we eat, turn on the TV, join a conversation, fellowship or any of the other decisions we make every day. We learn to make right choices in what we allow in our lives. Instead of focusing on the wrong choices made in the past, we choose today, and day-by-day, what is best for us.
Along the way we will still make some wrong choices, but when that happens, it’s important to keep moving forward. The enemy attempts to bring guilt and condemnation, which, if received can lead us to make more wrong choices. All choices are opportunities to make a change in our lives. We align our will, decide to do or not do this or that, as the Lord leads. Only by the grace of God can we keep walking in the newness He brings about, from glory to glory!
Romans 13:14 “But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”
