Have you ever gotten a pebble in your sock when you're walking? It doesn't have to be a big pebble. A small one is enough to irritate you and turn what could have been a pleasant walk into one that is miserable! If you're like me, you finally have to stop, take off your shoe and sock and find the culprit. How can something so small cause so much pain and irritation?
Sin is like that. Just one will do it. It doesn't have to be what we consider a "big" sin. Just a tiny one embedded in our flesh. We know it's there but we try to overlook it, hoping it won't cause us too much pain. We just don't want to have to deal with getting rid of it.
Has the Holy Spirit revealed some part of your life that is "flesh controlled" instead of Holy Spirit controlled? It's like that nagging little pebble. My recommendation is to claim the power of God in your life and get rid of it! You will find your Christian "walk" will be so much more pleasant.
