The Purpose Of The Law, Not For Us To Keep
Romans 7:7 ...But I did not know sin except through the law ; for neither did I know coveting, except the law had said, "You shall not covet." (18) For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh , nothing good dwells...
It's not by might or by my power and it's the Spirit of the MOST HIGH dwellingand active in US sayers the Lord. We can do all things through JESUS CHRIST who strengthen US. Jesus Christ has made as a container to contain God to dwell in and teach us and for us to dwell in HIM. Jesus Christ as an OFFERING from God is also our sufficiency.
God knows that no good thing comes out of the flesh. He knew this a long time ago, but we do not know it. We do not know that there is no good thing from the flesh. As a result, we keep hoping and trying our best to please God. God knows that our flesh is useless. But we do not know it. Therefore, He gave the law to us.
The purpose of the law is to prove to us that man is sinful and powerless. The law was not given for us to keep; God knows that we cannot keep the law. God knows that we will break the law, but we do not know it. Therefore, He gave the law to us and allows us to break it. In this way we will come to know what God already knows, and we will become aware of our powerlessness.
Many at a times reality sets in when our best of efforts to be of good behaviour fails us. When our efforts gives us more frustrationthan anticipated. It makes us become more hopeless always been anxious, whilst we're cleared told not be anxious about anything. Rather we continue to do the opposite.
God has to bring us to the point where we confess that we cannot make it. Only then will we acknowledge Gods wisdom in crucifying us on the cross. Every person has his specific weakness, and he must ask God to enlighten him and show him his weakness. Every person has at least one thing that he cannot overcome.
Once you see that you are unable, you will see that God is able. If you do not see your own weakness, you will not see the power of Christ. We see the power of the Lord when we come fully aware that it is not I who lives but the Christ in me. We all we all will understand APPRECIATE the WORD of God through JESUS CHRIST and how perform in us.
Be anxious about NOTHING and in all things ( please search for the rest of this Bible quotation and enjoy the countless and less stressful LIFESTYLE the HOLY SPIRIT revelations has offered US.
MY PEACE I GIVE YOU ALL THIS DAY, BLESSED BE IN YOUR NAME.
