Even if we have proclaimed to follow Jesus Christ, we may find ourselves struggling to do what we should do. It can be frustrating to feel like you cannot do anything right. Even if we have managed to change how we do things, it is often easy to fall into old patterns or behaviors. We are a work in progress. God will not abandon us. He will work to complete the work that has been started in us.
Verses: Romans 7:15, 21-23 (NIV)
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me.
