Cutting Thoughts& Condemnation

Real talk...I slipped last night..

well...I almost went back into the same sin because I want to appease my flesh..

but God kept me.

I know about boundaries...but there is a certain 'persona'  (I will share more about this as I feel led by the Lord) I like to take on that I know is not Godly..but is very comforting and appealing to my flesh..

It's awesome when a post of yours, a blog post that is...preaches to YOU, the next day.

But The Lord brings Conviction...

satan and demons bring condemnation... 

sometimes when I give into my flesh..i tend to run from God..and through condemnation..satan wins because it's easy to start to think "well, i messed up too much..I'm in Christ and I almost slipped/or slipped into that..."

no excuse to stay in that sin...but there is no condemnation.. 

What exactly is condemnation... Let's break it down with a dictionary definition shall we...
the action of condemning someone to a punishment; sentencing ..

"Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, " Romans 8:2"

Praise the Lord Christ already took our punishment!!!! His sentence was death but he rose again and brought us life. 

Even though I never went through with it...but the battle and sin starts in the mind..the war is always in your mind...

"I would hate that I broke God's heart so much, I would think, how could I betray this loving God?? I'm so unworthy...I should hurt myself..."

but praise God...I have to cast those thoughts down because....

"But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5"

I love you guys so much--Stacie
