Higher levels with God

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I'm at a point in my life where I want to take Jesus as seriously as He takes me. The problem is that I'm struggling to the leave the worldly things behind. I've asked God for forgiveness so many times but end up doing exactly what i said I wouldn't and it's really destroying my relationship with God as I feel further and further from Him. How can I com back and not keep backsliding?

The simple answer is to resist the devil and he will flee.  Avoid the things that are tempting you, which may not be easy to do, but it is what is necessary.  At some point you have to submit yourself to God if you want to please Him.  Paul speaks about renewing your mind, this is something you should do each day when you wake and resolve to doing so throughout the day.  Ultimately the choice is yours, God is not going to force you, so you have to make a choice who you will serve, yourself, or God?

Praying for you, God bless.

His purifying/sanctifying process is lifelong. Continue abiding and He will continue pruning, no one said it is an overnight job. :)
