Get Over It. Dealing with tough stuff prevents repeating it over and over.

Posted: April 23, 2016 in Uncategorized

There always seems to be something that trips us up rather consistently. Sometimes we see it coming and at other times, it just seems to come out of nowhere. We need to learn to not be oblivious to our enemy’s strategies. Take a look at 2 Corinthians 2:11 for Paul’s comments.

1 Corinthians 15:34 challenges us at the core of why we need to deal with the persistent hard stuff in life rather than live in the hamster cage lifestyle that is so easy to stay in. Paul reminds us to come to our senses and stop repeating the consistent sin that keeps us from moving forward. This behavior also detracts from those who are really trying to grab some joy in life but can’t find the formula.

To not adopt the habit of dealing with that sin, failure, or hard stuff only guarantees doing it again, and tripping up those hoping to find something different in us to give them hope.

Doing some things over and over often does provide beneficial results, but with that nasty habit or worthless sin pattern, it must end or the hole we’re digging gets deeper.

WHAT THIS MEANS: We always have choices to either go forward or backward. We don’t stay in the same place. What could you do this week to really deal with that sin that keeps winning in your life?
