Week 9 • Day 5 • Meditate

“I’ve tried everything and nothing helps. I’m at the end of my rope. Is there no one who can do anything for me? Isn’t that the real question?
The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does. He acted to set things right in this life of contradictions where I want to serve God with all my heart and mind but am pulled by the influence of sin to do something totally different”
Romans 7:24-25

In Romans chapter 7, Paul doesn’t leave us in despair.

If we can’t seem to get it together, there’s hope.

Jesus.

Through the Holy Spirit, our lives can be transformed.

How? For me personally, the only way I can get it together, to be disciplined, to do what’s right … is to keep God close at all times. To ask for help, daily. Sometimes, minute by minute.

Fall down. Surrender. Get up. Try again. Over and over. Until bad habits are made into new.

Until doing the right thing suddenly isn’t as hard as it used to be.

Do you need God’s help? Think on all the ways you can let Him.
