Galatians 5:17 (NIV) For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict each other, so that you do not do what you want.
Don’t create or allow circumstances to develop that can destroy you. Have you accumulated destructive debt? Given in to destructive habits or addiction? Refused to resolve broken relationships? Take responsibility for your life.
People of God aren’t exempt from the victim mentality either; we often put another spin on our situation, we blame God for things. The seductive power of the victim mentality is that you never accept responsibility. It’s always someone or something else’s fault.
I’m not saying your circumstances, genes, and upbringing don’t affect who you are. They clearly do, no question in my mind. What I’m saying is, regardless of all these things, we remain responsible for our own behavior. Do you take responsibility or do you option out and play the blame game!
Point to ponder- More importantly, God is capable of bringing about change in any life, even yours, no matter how messed up it is.
