How can we leave this topic, former procrastinators, without gathering some scripture helps? Here is a short list. Please share yours with us. We hide God’s word in our hearts so we might not sin against Him. Psalm 119:11
“..For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.” Hebrews 2:14-18
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
“Likewise, you also, reckon yourselves to be dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore, do not let sin reign in your mortal body that you should obey it in its lusts.“ Romans 6:11-12

Do you think it’s a small thing, no big deal to give in? “His master replied, ‘Well done good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and enjoy your master’s happiness.’” Matthew 25:21
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.” 2 Corinthians 10:4 Pastor Tony Evans points out that in the Greek a stronghold is a partition that holds back the truth from entering an area of our life. Pull it down and truth flows in.

“But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.” James 1:14-15
