“Coming just as you are” is the first step towards eternal bliss. But staying as you are is stagnation and when one stands in the same spot for too long, retrogression easily sets in.
There is nothing you are struggling with, nothing standing between you and God that cannot be brought down. Once you deal with your heart and set it right, all things will fall in place. Sin is first conceived in the heart before the mind and body perform it. Proverbs 4:23
Thank God He did not leave is at the mercy of sin or the devil; we have a chief weapon against sin, a weapon to keep our hearts pure and sanctified. The Word
If we keep reading, studying and meditating on the word, it cleanses us and helps us to maintain a right attitude and lifestyle, one that pleases God.
No matter the struggles you are in, do not despair, feed your spirit and mind with God’s word, you begin to act God’s word naturally, sometimes without even realizing it.
Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth. John17: 17 (AMP)
