The Sin That So Easily Besets Us

I was thinking on Hebrews 12:1 and “the sin which doth so easily beset us.” Beset is trouble or threaten persistently. I am not sure how many can relate to that (or are willing to admit they can relate to that), but I sure can. The devil knows our point of weakness and he knows exactly where and when to attack. He’s also a master at self-condemnation if we do fall, but if you continue to read Hebrews 12 you will find “whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth…(6)” The Lord does it out of a place of love (not condemnation) and verse 11 tells us “afterwards it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness…” Once the Holy Spirit has corrected us and we have ask for forgiveness, that sweet peace is restored and the devil can’t hold that over your head any longer. After that, it’s time to suit up and put in your armor of God to prevent future attacks. Take extra care for those areas the enemy hit hardest because he will be back and you need to be stronger in the area of that sin that so easily beset you. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” ~ Hebrews 12:1

“Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.” ~ Hebrews 12:11
