Scripture: Romans 6:  Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
Observation: You would think of course I won’t have sin reign, but when I look back on my day the sin of laziness prevented me from writing, the sin of complacency prevented me from doing a Bible study with my wife. A day doesn’t seem to go by without me giving in to sin and preventing me to do what God has planned for me. So instead of God I obey sins evil desires.
Application: Sin is doing things that God doesn’t want you to do. God has put on my heart right and wrong and I know the difference. Before I do anything I need to ask myself does this honor God or am I doing something that draws me away from God’s purpose in my life.
Prayer: My Lord strengthen me and give me the discipline and courage to fight sin in my life. Please reign over me.
