- The Secret Of Sin: Devices Of Pushing Into Sin
- The Secret Of Serving God: Devices Of Pulling Down From Serving
Danger Of Living In Secret Sin While Serving God
Living and indulging into secret sin as a christian is very dangerous and so pathetic because it open door for great adversaries to dwell. Perhaps you have just surrendered your life to Jesus an now experiencing genuine salvation, you ought to understand these two important secrets devices of Satan, which he uses while persuading us to lure into sin and to pull us back from serving God. 2 Corinthians 2:11 "lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices"
The secret of sin: Is that behind every Sin, is an assigned demon. No sin without a demon. The pressure and persuasion to commit sin that seems like you can’t resist it is the influence of demonic spirit. When you determined not to do something again and you found yourself right in the middle of that sin, when you made strong resolutions and decisions not to commit sin again and not long again you found yourself doing exactly what you detested, and when surrendered your life to Jesus to start a new life and rejected sin, and sooner you found yourself going back into those sins you have confessed.
It is not ordinary, it is a force beyond human power, pressurizing you. Paul said, “For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do…..But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.” Romans 7:15, 23.
Another secret is that those demons persuading you to commit the sins, if you yield and commit the sins, they are the same demons who will torment you when those sins take you to hell. Do you know that people are being tormented in hell? It is not Angels of God who torment people in hell; they are the same demons working under Satan. Knowing the secret of a problem will amount to nothing if there is no solution.
What Is The Way Out
First you need to repent from ALL sins by realizing they are wrong and ready to forsake them. Being ready is not just in words but indeed. You detach yourself from any link or trace to sins. You can’t focus on a sin, you need to repent from all and then confess all. Ask Jesus to forgive you that sin and cleanse you, no matter how small. Then you start reading your Bible everyday, early in the morning and evening, at least two chapters a day, and praying for God’s grace and strength everyday to overcome.
And when the pressure, the temptation, to commit the sin comes again, when the feeling is overwhelming on you, maybe to get angry, drink, have sex, masturbate or tell lie, whatever it may be; you know what you are going to do? Resist the feeling. How? Just hold the feeling, don’t yield to it. The demon is around again, you must behave as if you are looking at him. The good news is that the demon can’t force you and he can’t stay long.
He will not stay more than few minutes and the feeling will disappear. But during those few minutes it will be as if you will die if you don’t yield or you can’t survive resisting it. It is a lie, just recall God’s Word during those minutes. Keep praying for God’s grace and strength to overcome everyday, it is a day at a time!
After you rededicated or re-devoted your life to Jesus, you want to serve God, you want to please God, you want to pray more, you want to read God’s Word more; you want to preach God’s Word. But then you feel empty. When you want to pray, before you pray for 5 minutes you are empty, before you read few verses of Bible you feel empty.
Your heart is wondering about. It is like your prayer can’t be answered, as if you are not meant to be strong spiritually, as if you can’t be strong in prayer, as if God hates you or you are not a child of God. Has it happened to you before? What next came to your mind? STOP! That you should, “stop the prayer, the reading Bible, the new life in Jesus. You will always fumble, you are not meant for such life. You are naturally weak and God is not really looking for such people like you.” The secret is that thought is not just ordinary; it is from the devil to discourage you from moving forward.
SO WHAT IS THE SOLUTION?
Don’t stop. You are praying and you feel empty and wondering about? Don’t stop, continue the prayer, God understand your weakness. The secret is that before you know, you will feel filled before you finish the prayer. The secret is that the first few minutes of prayer, praising God in Spirit or reading Bible are likely to be distracted and discouraged; but if you don’t stop you will be filled, full and stronger.
The same thing is applicable in your new life in Jesus, in your re-devotion, re-dedication and consecration to God. It will first be un-natural, boring, discouraging, and cumbersome as if you can’t stay long, as if you can’t survive or sustain to the end, as if you can’t understand everything or be holy. Did you remember when you got your first phone and going through the manual? It was as if you would not get the functioning right, but how you are almost expert, why because you didn’t stop using and practicing the phone.
So also if you don’t stop in your new devotion to Jesus, you will get better and stronger. It is applicable to everyone, both the people in the past and present; all who have ever come to Jesus went through such struggles only they didn’t give up and many are passing though similar things. But Satan will want to personalize it to you as if you are the worst. The devil is a LIAR!
CO N C L U S I O N
When the people, pressure, persuasion or feeling to commit sin comes again, DON’T YIELD! It is then you will discover the strength and grace of God as your weakness is turned to strength. When the feeling of being empty, of wondering of thoughts, of weakness, of discouragement and despair come to stop you from your decision and move to serve God, DON’T STOP! If you don’t stop you will be strong. 1 Peter 5:8. “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.”
