Have you noticed that you have a sinful nature that is filled with darkness? This sinful nature is a result of the negative, destructive beliefs of the father-of-lies and has a character of its own, either pitiful and pathetic, or domineering and demanding. Because this sinful nature lives its own life in you from and for the father-of-lies, YOU keep on doing the things YOU DO NOT want to do, and the things YOU DO want to do YOU CAN NOT DO.
I KNOW THAT NOTHING GOOD LIVES IN ME, THAT IS, IN MY SINFUL NATURE. FOR I HAVE THE DESIRE TO DO WHAT IS GOOD, BUT I CANNOT CARRY IT OUT. FOR WHAT I DO IS NOT THE GOOD I WANT TO DO; NO, THE EVIL I DO NOT WANT TO DO—THIS I KEEP ON DOING
Dear Child, it is no use trying to tame this sinful nature of yours, because this nature does not want to be tamed. It will not obey you, no matter how hard you try, for it only listens to its master, the father-of-lies.
FOR GOD, WHO SAID, ‘LET LIGHT SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS,’ MADE HIS LIGHT SHINE IN OUR HEARTS…THE LIGHT OF LIFE’
(2 Corinthians 4:6 and John 8:12).
Listen to My Word for you, today, Beloved One: Jesus, My Son, is the only One who can turn water into wine…let Light shine out of darkness…replace the sinful nature from the father-of-lies with His Nature, BECAUSE ALL AUTHORITY HAS BEEN GIVEN TO HIM. If you confess your sinful nature to Him and ask Him to save you from it, He will come into your heart to shine in you as the Light of Life. If you submit to this Light of Life in you, you will stop doing the things you DO NOT want to do, and the things you DO want to do, you will keep on doing.
AND JESUS CAME AND SPAKE UNTO THEM, SAYING, ALL POWER IS GIVEN UNTO ME IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH
Have you identified your sinful nature? Is it pathetic and pitiful or domineering and demanding? Which beliefs from the father-of-lies control it?
If you are tired of being controlled by the sinful nature, stop trying to fix it. Instead, show it to the Lord Jesus and ask Him to remove it and put a new nature in you—His Nature that is filled with the Light of Life.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, Son of the Most High, Your Name is exalted above all. Lord Jesus, I am tired of my sinful nature that rules my life, so that I do not do what I want to do and keep on doing what I do not want to do. I confess this nature to You, Lord Jesus. Please remove the negative, destructive beliefs from the father-of-lies that are keeping this nature alive in me. Make Your Light shine in my heart to become my Light of Life—a new Nature under Your Authority.
Maintain an Awareness
When your heart hurts, both the Lord Jesus and the father-of-lies stand ready to lead you out of that pain to a solution.
