Are you driven to be righteous? Maybe you have a faith that says, I can’t help myself. I’m a sinner. I am human and will sin and can’t do anything about it.
Don’t you see that kind of thinking will prevent us from pursuing a Godly righteousness? It’s a ploy of Satan to get us to quit on ourselves.
Don’t fall for the bate that says you can’t do it. If I don’t believe I can achieve something, then I won’t even try.
