We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin. For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin. -Romans 6:6‭-‬7 NLT

Whatever sin your flesh craves, you can stop. It’s not through will power or attempting to keep all the commandments. It’s by faith.

Faith is acting on what we believe. If we believe God’s word, we act on it through consistent confessions. Romans 6:10 says, when Jesus died, he died once to break the power of sin. If we truly believe that, during times of temptation, we’ll open up our mouths and declare, “(whatever sin), you have no power over me because Jesus broke your power over me through His death.” The thought to sin will come again. And again you’ll say, ” (whatever sin), you have no power over me because Jesus broke your power over me through His death.” You may have to do this 50 times, but you’ll win the fight if you don’t quit.

Now, there may be times where the temptation was too strong to overcome. That doesn’t mean anything. Don’t quit. Just apply your faith to God’s forgiveness. You’ll say, “I receive God’s forgiveness based on Hebrews 8:12 which says, He forgives my wickedness and won’t remember my sins ever.” It doesn’t matter if you feel forgiven. You just have to believe you’re forgiven.

Use your faith in God’s word to overcome the areas where sin has taken your life hostage. Let it go.
