When I feel discouraged about a sin that seems to continually get the better of me, there is one place to turn for comfort.
Psalm 119:133 says, “Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.”
The key to overcoming sin in my life is God’s Word. As I read it, commit it to memory, and meditate on it, the power of sin is defeated by the authority of Scripture. Whatever sin besets me, I can find a verse that will allow me to have victory with the Holy Spirit’s help.
In the past, I worked on Bible memory while driving our daughters to school. I would type out a passage on a sheet of paper, then have them listen to me say it while we were riding in the car. Now that we’re homeschooling I have fallen out of the habit, but am committed to picking it up again. As I help them with their verses during our morning Bible time at home, I want to return to expanding my own Scripture memory.
Ephesians 6:17 tells us that God’s Word is our Sword. Let’s put it to good use!
