Above all, show sincere love to each other, because love brings about the forgiveness of many sins.
1 Peter 4:8 CEB
When we think of God first, and reflect upon His presence and love in our life, then how can we not overcome our fears, insecurities, and fleshly desires? We can, but we put flesh above spirit the majority of the time and that is why we cowardly give in to the darkness that enshrouds us, cripples us, and pushes us farther off our path that God has placed before us.
God IS Love, so let us rely upon and live in that love to strengthen us and make us better people, better leaders, better followers of Christ, and better children of the Lord.
Jealousy, envy, lust, greed, arrogance, pride, and all of the other sins will not have the strength to consume you when you declare that God is all that you need—and you believe it!
Father, there is no doubt that I have sinned, even this week, even today. I sinned by giving into fear, jealousy, envy, and even other weaknesses that You despise— this we both know.
Lord, I want to be overwhelmed with the fullness and abundance of love for You, for myself, for my loved ones, and for the world that I do not give in to the luring by sins that wait for me.
In Your name, the great I Am, I pray to You, as a follower and believer of Christ. Amen.
