My son, FORGET NOT MY LAW; but let thine heart KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Let not MERCY AND TRUTH forsake thee: BIND THEM ABOUT THY NECK; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. TRUST in THE LORD WITH ALL thine heart; and LEAN NOT unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: FEAR THE LORD, and DEPART FROM EVIL. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. HONOUR THE LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: Proverbs 3:1-9. There, see how easy all this is? All you have to do is Forget not, keep, bind, trust, lean not, acknowledge, fear, depart, and honour, about the things of the Lord. These things must be easy to do, because the Lord said to Do Them. And just in case any of these things do get hard to do, the Holy Spirit will be right there, by your side, to help you do all these things, the Right Way, EVERY time. Is it really possible to do all these things right the first time, and every time? Yes, and Christ Proved it, because He did it, He obeyed EVERY command of His Father. And that Obedience by Him to the Father shows us that we can be the same Obedience to Him by us. Why? HE'S OUR EXAMPLE AND EVERYTHING HE DID, WE CAN DO. (No, we can't die for the sins of others, that is Christ's alone). So how is it that we so easily fail at these things? The bottom line is, we choose to. The power of our flesh, self, and old man nature has been broken by Christ on the Cross of Calvary, we just have to "Fight the GOoD fight to walk out that Victory Christ has Won for us. Every" Obedience" to Christ is a step closer to His Total Victory over sin in our Life. Walk with Christ, Walk in His Victory, Obey the Holy Spirit, Grow in CHRISTLIKENESS, and, Be Blessed.
