You know better.
Your wrong attitudes and actions are what prevent you from obtaining victory. My Spirit is alive in you and has the power to direct you into good decision-making. However, this does not take place if you are unwilling to follow My direction. The things that hinder your spiritual purity only have the power you give them. Because you know Me, you know better, and our connection gives you the power to remove every obstacle that prevents your progress.
Be like obedient children as you put aside the desires you used to pursue when you didn’t know better. Since the One who called you is holy, be holy in all you do.
