I decide to do good, but I don’t really do it; I decide not to do bad, but then I do it anyway. I’ve tried everything and nothing helps. I’m at the end of my rope. Who will rescue me from this sinful nature that is taking me to eternal death? Romans 7:19, 24a MSG; 24b CW
Have you come to a point in where you’re saying to yourself, “I’ve got to change because I don’t like who I am and I don’t want to be like this anymore”? Have you worn yourself out trying to change yourself? Have you come to the realization that you need help?
If this is where life finds you, then you are in a good place so be encouraged. For now God can step in and do what you’ve been unable to do for yourself – give you an extreme makeover! And since God can do the impossible you can triumphantly declare, “Thanks be to God, this problem has not been left for me to solve. It has been solved for me by Jesus Christ!” (Romans 7:25a CW)
