To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted. Titus 1:15 New International Version. It starts out as small as a dandelion seed but soon completely infests the mind.
What is it?
Sin is a strong weed that will destroy the good garden of life if permitting to take seed. Joseph- Anthony: Green
What is the best weed killer for sin?
It is to admit it is stronger that we are, if the proper steps are not taken it will smother the joy out of our live and will slowly destroy us.
What are the necessary steps we must take?
It is to surrender it to Jehovah and to pray for the Holy Spirits guidance and power to destroy this wicked weed or weeds. Most times the weeding will not occur overnight but takes years if not decades to destroy.
Sometimes it is only by the power of the Holy Spirit that the sin is eradicated because it is too strong for us. Sometimes we have to get outside help as well as the Holy Spirits power and sometimes we need to work as a power team with the Holy Spirit to destroy the sin.
For one of mine it took three decades. For another it was instantaneous.
Once the weeds are eradicated we must be on our guard to ensure they do not return. The wicked gardener (satan) will rarely come at you head on but will be sneaky and use little temptations. If you give in the weeds quickly invade your soul.
Satan is a sneak in the darkness, that is why it is so important for the Christian to constantly be walking in the light. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Again that is why it is of utmost importance you need constant communion with the Holy Spirit. This is accomplished by constant reading of our Bibles, praying and if need be, be in support groups.
When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth. John 16:13 New King James Version
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for lighting my way in a world surrounded by darkness. Thank you for being such a marvelous gardener to pull the weeds from my heart while they are small and weak. I exalt you in the name of the greatest light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
