21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.
So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law,
but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.
Jesus, deliver me from myself.
From my expectations & ideals for myself.
Deliver me from my sinful heart,
& humble me.
Deliver me from my sinful mind & sinful nature,
may I die to myself,
live for you &
live as Your humble servant.
Trusting in You,
Your plan for me,
Your expectations of me!
