Fear of God Devotional: How a Repentant Person Fights Against Sin

How should a repentant person fight against sin?

Paul Carrington explains in this video that repentance involves the crying out to God for deliverance from sin. It does not involve minimizing or compromising with sin. They cleave to God. They are desperate and know if they try to fight sin without God, they are doomed. 

The Israelites lived amongst many enemies, but instead of relying on God to defeat them as He instructed them to do, they made agreements and alliances with them. They did not trust in God and did what they thought was most helpful. But, in time, their enemies came back and overtook them. 

1 Peter 5:8 (NKJV) – “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
