If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? And if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door and unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.~ Genesis 4:7(KJV)
This scripture paints an interesting picture when it comes to the believer and how sins seek to dominate their lives. Sin is at your door not yet entered into your house- meaning it’s lurking, strategizing, and patiently waiting for an opportunity to entice and possess you. (Click here and tweet this). Its desire is not for anyone but you the child of God.
Everyone has a weakness. Sin isn’t a mistake or a weakness. Sin is sin, mistakes are mistakes and weaknesses are weakness. (Click here and tweet this).When mistakes are committed there is always an opportunity for a re-takes. Weaknesses are natural however debilitating or not. It’s through your weakness that the enemy attacks. David’s weaknesses led him to sleep with someone’s wife and Solomon carried it over. Abraham had a weakness for fair women, Isaac did too and Jacob took it to the next level. Your ignorance is the strength of your foe. (Click here and tweet this). Sin however comes about through the medium of your weaknesses when it’s not strengthened by the word of God. The devil knowing what you are weak at will hammer you consistently with it until either you give in or overcome it. (Click here and tweet this).
The devil will never entice you with anything you are strong at. (Click here and tweet this). His first temptation he attacked Jesus was that of food; he knew Jesus had been fasting for 40days and 40nights and needed food. Because he understands the bloodline, he tailors his attack to suit the weaknesses exhibited for ages through the bloodline- a particular trait of weaknesses and sins that has been dominant in your family line for ages. Thus if you will agree with me and be honest, what you are struggling with in terms of weakness that leads to you sinning has/is being exhibited either by your father or mother or someone closer in the family before.

Unbeknownst to many who suffer from the bondage of sin, there is so much power available for one to be totally broken free through Christ. Often times, they get so blinded by the sin they commit so much so that telling them it’s possible to be free is something difficult to believe. (Click here and tweet this).
The Apostle Paul takes it a step further and explains that the law of sin and death that had kept people in bondage has been broken by the law of life in Christ Jesus. He continues to assure us that there isn’t any more condemnation for anyone who is in Christ Jesus. For the law of life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death. (Click here and tweet this). Where sin had led us onto death Christ came and redeemed us back onto life through salvation. Jesus did not come to condemn the world but He came so that the world through Him might be saved. Click here and tweet this).
Here is the 3minute simple step to take:
A. Acknowledge that you are a sinner and name the particular sin to God. (Not quite popular with the so-called new age teachings).But hey until you accept your state, no one can help you. (Romans 3:23, 6:29)
B. Plead the blood of Christ to wash you fresh from the strong hold of and guilt of sin. The only power available to break you free from the vicious cycle of sin is the blood of Jesus. (Hebrews 9:22)
C. Accept your new state as a born again child of God and desire to be baptised in water. (John3:3)
Prayer: "Dear Lord I thank you for this great salvation that is free. I commit my struggle with sin into your hands knowing that you alone can deliver me from its clutches. Empower me through the blood to overcome this sin. I thank you that it's done in Jesus mighty name". Amen!!!
