The greatest enemy to obedience is justification. If you find yourself justifying something that you KNOW is wrong…guess what? You’re in denial.
The saddest part about denial is that you REFUSE to acknowledge what you’re doing is wrong. You can’t help yourself or pray for yourself if you don’t address your wrongdoings. You are opening yourself up to spiritual attack from the enemy…You are suffering and hindering your blessings and you don’t even realize it!
We fall victim to the same sins over and over again simply because we are in denial and trying to justify our actions to make it OK. The thing is…It isn’t though. The longer you’re in denial, the further away you are from God and the weaker you become. You are allowing the enemy to win your mind.
“He will judge everyone according to what they have done. He will give eternal life to those who keep on doing good, seeking after the glory and honor and immortality that God offers. But he will pour out his anger and wrath on those who live for themselves, who refuse to obey the truth and instead live lives of wickedness.” –Romans 2:6-8
Address your wrongdoings. Pass the test. Time is limited and there are people out there relying on YOU and your testimony to help restore their hope and ignite their faith!
