It just joys me to see this on d2jsp god bless to all of you
Church is a good place to recieve truth and encouragement and to meet new friends. Where it starts though is you and your want to have a relationship with our Father. Giving your life to Christ isn't a one time prayer and you live your life from there. It is a life long journey, a constant renewing of your mind, a perfect father to include through both good and bad times. Once you accept that relationship and becoming a new creation in Christ, taking off your old set of clothes and replacing that with the armor of God, satan holds no authority over your life anymore. If you are independant to your own will and hold onto things that aren't God's will for your life, not trusting God in everything, satan has room to work. I encourage you dig into his word, daily. A good place to start is the book of Ephesians. A place of brokeness is the perfect place to allow God's grace in and see it change everything, forever. While it may seem discomforting, trusting God with it instead of trying to please God and fix the sin on your own, there is truth, obedience, freedom, and grace in that. This isn't your battle, as being 1 with God, the son, and the holy spirit, it's a battle to be fought together. Knowing victory has already been claimed, you just have yet to step into that life.
