Romans 8:1-2 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
Satan want to have a hold on you, something that will stop you from going to God because of shame. The devil always look for loopholes to attack but because God loves us, he gave us a second chance. He said we started on a wrong foot, my son, let’s start again. Every time you runs to God, Satan pulls out a page and reminds you of things from the past. Psalm 32:2 Yes, what joy for those whose record the LORD has cleared of guilt, whose lives are lived in complete honesty!
Believe that God has done all this in order to have a relationship with you.
How satisfying is the sounds of these words “Your sins are forgiven.
Lamentations 3:37 Who can command things to happen without the Lord’s permission? Satan thrives on putting fear amongst Christians. We pray in panic rather than a having relationship with our God. God promised that He will never leave us no forsake us. As much as you acknowledge the powers and principalities on this earth, know the God you are following. Ecclesiastes 3:14 And I know that whatever God does is final. Nothing can be added to it or taken from it. God’s purpose is that people should fear him. Take control of your thoughts, don’t let them control you. Respect man but fear God. Fear is like a prison, free yourself, think God first not your trouble. Be calm in the storm. Exodus 14:14 The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”
Isaiah 54:10 For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the LORD, who has mercy on you.
Romans 8:7-8 For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.
Matthew 4:8-9 Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. “I will give it all to you,” he said, “if you will kneel down and worship me.”
The moment you move closer to God, Satan will begin to create another entertaining world contrary to what you want to pursue. He will come with things that your flesh yearn for. A life of christianity means there are things that make sense to the world that you must move away from. Genesis 3:6 The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too.
Job 12:10 In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

Romans 12:2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
It was easy for Jesus to comply with God’s plan because He knew the mind of God and the plans and purpose about His life. No man obeys God at all times because our minds is dominated by the worldly thoughts. Most of the time we get this wrong because we literal take the scripture in it’s textual form. God’s thoughts are higher than ours. He sometimes uses the foolish things to achieve greatness. Philippians 2:13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Holy Spirit allows us to comply to with the will of God about our lives. Without discerning the spiritual things , we will always question instead of acting.
You cannot hear God when in a noisy place. Don’t let the troubles of this world preoccupy your mind. We are passengers in His vehicle. Hebrews 13:21 may he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.
If you don’t want to comply, it’s like forcing the hand of God to act. Jonah and Saul leaned the hard way, don’t let it get to that point. Be sensitive to the voice of God.
