Root cause of sin struggle revealed

Current struggle root cause that has been revealed:  The human heart is extremely deceptive. (Jer 17:9).  It plots things and sets me up, and I believe it!

At times I know it’s lying to me, but I want to believe it (so I don’t have to take responsibility?), and that’s part of the problem.  Part of me still likes sin and strives to find ways to get it.

There is also a lie that says something like, “God can not sustain me.”  I walk with God but then seem to run out of steam.

The other lie is that God has given me more than I can bear, and that they only way out is to sin.
