Romans 7:15 (NET)  For I dont understand what I am doing. For I do not do what I want- instead, I do what I hate. 

I think we can all relate to Paul’s problem.  I can’t count the times words I didn’t want to say what came out of my mouth nor the times my actions were not what I really wanted them to be.  We, as sinful humans, don’t have the power to keep from saying or doing the wrong things.  It takes the power of God’s Holy Spirit to move us from sinful words and actions to God pleasing and loving ones.  So, what do we do about it?  We join Paul in thanks for God’s love, forgiveness and power as we practice and learn to walk in His Spirit rather than in our fleshy, sinful nature.  The question is are we willing to learn and comitt our time, energy and love?  Let us ask God to free His power of His Holy Spirit in our minds and hearts.
