Scripture

We know that everyone fathered by God does not sin, but God protects the one he has fathered, and the evil one cannot touch him. - 1 John 5:18

Heart Thoughts

I knew a lady one time that told me, “Rabbi Michael, I am battling with all my might against the devil but I just feel like for every step forward I take then I take three steps back.” I told her, “I don’t think you have a ‘devil’ problem, I think you have an identity crises.” This lady was trying to operate out of her might, out of the volume of her prayers and the intensity of her prayers. The enemy was baiting her into a battle and gaining the upper-hand.

Here is the point: the God-begotten are also the God-protected. You may not realize it but when you were born-again of the Spirit, God put a new set of desires inside of you and the mark of His spiritual DNA in you. Your desire is no longer to live in addiction but freedom from addiction, no longer to walk in darkness but to live in light, no longer to live estranged to God but to be alive to God. That is why those who are God-begotten do not make a practice of sin.

Even more, He has put the mark of His spiritual DNA in you. You ever hear believers saying things like, “I am trying to overcome the enemy?” Or, “I am struggling to get victory?” Those phrases should not even be named amongst the God-begotten. You were born again to to win against the devil because the spiritual DNA of the Most High God is inside of you and the enemy cannot touch you.

You don’t have to shout or scream to overcome sin or defeat the devil. No, rather, you just have to declare, “I’am God-begotten and God-protected I will not be taken by sin nor touched by the devil.” You are wired to win against sin and against the devil.

Bracha

May the Fatherhood of God become your greatest confidence. May your soul be filled with trust and assurance that you are God-begotten and God protected. May you boldly declare today that sin will no longer dominate your heart and the devil will not be able to touch you.
