To him who is able to keep you from stumbling. Jude 24 New King James Version
We all have them.
We have inherited them from our parents.
Sinful disposition traits are handed down from one generation to the next. This is why it is important to trace your ancestors. Doing so helps you understand why you are the way you are.
So if say you have relatives in your family tree that were alcoholics you would know it to be very wise to abstain from drinking.
As well it is also of extreme importance to pass this knowledge onto your children to help them avoid much grief and destruction in their lives.
Now there are some bad traits that try as we may we can never conquer them.
So say you are short tempered it does not matter how hard you try to control your temper you will always be short tempered.
All is not lost however.
We are blessed with the gift of the power of the Holy Spirit when we accept Christ as our savior and surrender these weaknesses to Him in complete faith that He shall conquer them.
As well He will bless you with knowledge of what triggers your temper to go off and the necessary steps to avoid these ruinous situations. There will come occasions when you cannot escape them. Then it is time to run to the safety of the Holy Spirit. Call upon Him quickly with complete faith He shall deliver you and He will.
I speak from personal experience on both of these weaknesses.
There were inherited weaknesses that were destroying my life that I had no power over. It was only when I completely surrendered them to Christ that I was saved.
There are ruinous dispositions that require daily prayer to prevent me from disastrous situation that the Holy Spirit either prevent from occurring or guided me through them when they do occur.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your Devine strength to eternally conquer the fleshly weaknesses in my life that was spiritually destroying me and making my life a living Hell. Thank you for blessing me with wisdom and strength on how to keep them at bay. I exalt You in the name of Your strong Son my Beloved Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful love bless you today and every day.
