God has created you to be more than a conqueror and an overcomer. In Christ you cannot fail.
You Cannot Fail
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. (Romans 6:4)
Do you realize that, as a believer, you have the Spirit of Resurrection residing in you? You have the same new life God gave Jesus when He raised Him from the dead. The old you no longer exists, you have become a new creation in Christ!
Old habits, ways of thinking, stubbornness and selfishness will stop the flow of resurrection life from reaching every area of your life. We must “work out our salvation” (Phil. 2:12). In other words, we must bring that which God has put within us out into every area of our soul and body.
Resisting God and embracing the old sin nature will separate us from the power of God that is available in Christ. Living a self-centered, disobedient and carnal life will stop up the flow of resurrection life and the power that resides within. You may say, “But I’m born-again.”
Beloved, even born-again people can encapsulate the resurrection power of God with their own spirits by soulish, carnal attitudes and sinful actions.
Allow the new life that God has put within you to overcome sin. There is no other way. You can’t do it on your own, only spending quality time in the Word of God, prayer and walking what you learn by the power of the Holy Spirit will give you the victory.
Yes, we must allow the Holy Spirit to help us. God will never violate our will. He waits for us to want to subdue our old fleshly habits and to take the first step. Then, all of the strength of heaven becomes available to help. You are never alone. The Holy Spirit will teach you and enable you to live a new life in Christ. The name of Jesus has been give you and the unfailing love of the Father is working in you. You cannot fail!
