What can we touch? - We've gone too far
We’ve gone too far – what do I do now?
If you’ve been reading this and feeling rubbish because you’ve already gone too far physically, I’d like to encourage you. You’re actually in a good place. The Lord is convicting you of sin in your life, just like He does for all of us with the different areas we struggle in. The question now is what to do with that conviction, you can either bury your head in the sand and go back to your sinful ways (highly tempting!) or you can choose to repent. To repent is simply to turn 180 degrees, to turn around and face the other way. It means to turn from following our own selfish desires (sin) and turn to face God instead, to follow His ways.
Pray with me now:
Father, thank you for showing me this area of my life where I am not honouring you. Thank you that, because of what you did through Jesus, I can be forgiven and can know you close. Please forgive me and fill me with your Holy Spirit so that I may have the strength and determination to turn from sin and instead to follow you. Amen.
There! You’re done. It’s as simple as that – the slate is wiped clean and you can start afresh. That’s not to say it will be easy, but the hardest part is deciding to change. If you’ve prayed this prayer, please do drop us a message by clicking here so that we can pray for you in the coming weeks.
Now let’s look at some practical ways to stay strong in the face of temptation.
