Are You At War Within Yourself?

There’s a war inside of me. Between who I want to be. There’s a war inside of me. Between who I want to be and who I am.  These are lyrics to a song by Todd Agnew.  If you ever get a chance to listen to it with your spirit, I’m sure that you will find yourself saying that it’s true.  We battle within ourselves everyday. So no, you’re not crazy or have multiple personalities. Trying to decide on whether or not we are doing something for God’s glory or if we are glorifying ourselves.

We can understand better when we read in Romans 7:14-25  Paul explains that we all have sin dwelling within us.  But that, how we wield it is the important thing.  Read verse 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.  If we can learn to practice doing good, we will in turn be becoming more Christ like.  We all seem to have areas in our lives that have a hard time grabbing a hold of.  They can eat at you.  The whole time you do it you’re thinking about how you shouldn’t be doing it or the feeling of guilt comes over you after you’re done.

My own confession of this will come later: two weeks from now.

As I have said before, we will have to give an account for our actions.  Matthew 12:36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. When reading that do not think that it is only words.  For remember actions speak louder than words.  Our actions, are due to what we have traveling through that mind of ours.  1 Peter 1:13  Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;  

What you see; what you hear gets put into your mind.  What is in your mind, gets put into your heart. Now I don’t believe in hypnosis.  Say what you will, but I think that those people (if they truly are hypnotised) are weak spirited people. But have you ever heard of those tapes that one puts on at night and listens to as they fall asleep.  Some of them talk about how beautiful you are, others try to curb your eating.  But if you think about it, when you listen to anything long enough you will believe the words that are being spoken.

So what war do you have battling you?  Are you one who thinks you can handle it on your own?  Are you seeking help for it?  If so, is the help you’re seeking from God or man?  Because remember he has a war of his own.
