I can only speak for myself but I cannot do that which I know I am supposed to do without the CONSTANT help and intervention from God Almighty! I will never be able to do it alone.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
Our faith in Christ must collide with appropriate action. Living for Christ implies repentance and the birth of a new creation. A hunger is born for the things of God, and to live according to the new life that is found in Christ. The forgetful listener is the person who attends church every week and listens to the word, but never engages the message toward life change. The Word of God is designed to be lived out, and the hearing of the Word is a catalyst to that change. Satan continues to sabotage your life after you have heard the good news. Disregard the lies and live out the truth!
I thank you Lord and Creator of everything that you love and forgive me daily. I thank you that you never leave me. Your mercy and grace never run out and are always enough. I on my own will never be enough…praise be to you forever and ever..IN THE NAME OF JESUS….AMEN.
