Mastering My Sin
Scripture: Genesis 4:  If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it.”
Observation: Most of my life sin mastered me and now I need to turn the tables. I have come a long way but I can’t say that I mastered my sinful desires, but do realize more quickly if I’m giving in. It is a battle each day, but a fight I can’t give up on our I won’t finish the race for my Lord.
Application: I need to allow my Lord, to help me master sin in my life. This is not a battle I’m going to win on my own, the enemy is too tough for me. I need to be in prayer throughout the day and stay in contact with my Lord for guidance. I’m here only because my God desires it and I need to stay focused and obedient to what He calls me to do.
Prayer: My Lord you know me better than I know myself. You know that I’m a sinner and I fall short of your glory each day, but I want to please you and do your will, bearing fruit before I come home. I need you to show me how to master this sinful man that I may break free of the bonds it places on me.
