It is interesting when the old person in charge stands down but refuses to die.
The old sinful self struggled to stay in control of life. It had to self medicate in order to cope. It decided to step aside and let the New Creation, the Jesus self, take full control. Also every now and again it decides that it doesn’t like the New Creation and tries to kick Jesus off the throne of my life.
The New Creation self, built in the likeness of Jesus, is really good in charge as Jesus is the Lord of Lords and King of Kings. He is in full control of my destiny. I have Love, Peace and Joy, to name a few, deep down in my Spirit. This is something the old self could not provide.
The old self, the old powerhouse, picks up a machine gun and begins to shoot bullets. The bullets are usually past wounds, many can be from the past few years, which have taken place since the New creation part of me was Created. The machine gun is simply to kill, steal and destroy the New Creation.
A war has broken out.
The Old Self handed over power but Refused to Die.
Its main purpose is the kill the new Creation by whatever means it can.
Has your old self refused to die?
If not then keep handing the power back to Jesus. Many times we think because the old man is trying to fight that Jesus has lost. The truth is because the old self is trying to fight that Jesus has actually WON.
I can walk in complete victory.
YOU can walk in COMPLETE VICTORY!!!!!!!!
