Romans 7:21-25
So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Romans 7 is quite the chapter to read on sin and the law. Paul clearly demarcates how the law is good and pure but sin abounds in the presence of law and is in us and until we are made anew in Christ, it has dominion over us. However, he also talks about how evil is still here with us after we are saved by God’s grace and keeps trying to trip us in our walk with the Lord. Am I the only one who completely agrees or do you too?

Yesterday, I received a forward from a dear friend regarding praying before eating. A Japanese Researcher Dr. Masaru Emoto took water droplets, exposed them to various words, music, and environments, and froze them for three hours. He then examined the crystal formations under a dark field microscope. And he took photographs. The results speak for themselves. The most beautiful crystals were ones formed after praying and this shows the power of prayer which we take for granted. As we continue to battle with sin in our walk with the Lord, the weapon we have to counter it is prayer and the assurance we have of being rescued from evil is Jesus Christ our Lord. Oh what a wonderful assurance.
