Have you ever felt completely despondent? Even (mentally, emotionally) paralyzed? If so, it might be because of sin that is literally stopping you right in your tracks. You cannot get out of this by yourself; you can’t. No one can. But, there is One who CAN move you from paralysis to power. It’s just not your power you need to rely on.
Questions for further thought:
1. What temptations to sin are paralyzing you right now? What sins are paralyzing you and your life outright?
2. How much longer do you think “toughing it out” will (not) work? How about taking these temptations and sins to Jesus?
We can choose paralysis, by not taking our sins and temptations to the Lord. Or, we can choose power by just giving them all to Him. He will restore us. “Please, Lord, help restore us in the things we need power over today. And you will make us stronger the next time. Thank you, Lord. Amen.”
