I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
The apostle Paul gives an account of the struggle he faced between his humanness and his spirit. He says that sometimes before he even realized what he was doing that the sinfulness would just overtake him and he hated it because it seemed like he had no control over it. He desired to do the whole will of God and though he did many good things he didn’t always do the good he willed. He hated the sin he did because it was opposite of the pure and holy nature of God. If the apostle Paul struggled with doing right all the time we shouldn’t beat ourselves up because we don’t do right all the time either. When we believe on Him we still keep our human nature and I don’t know about you all but I am often left wondering how my human nature can take control of things like it can. We will never be perfect in this life! God showed me a long time ago that I would never attain perfection and to give up trying to be a perfectionist. Instead we should strive for excellence in all we do!!!
