Listening To The Father’s Heart

Son, so many of my sons and daughters struggle to live in victory over besetting habits and sins. They thought these would go away when their new birth took place. My son Paul also struggled to make sense of this when he confessed: “For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me” (Rom7:19-20). He wrote those words many years after his conversion. He also understood there is often hidden shame that must be dealt with for my sons and daughters to be free (2 Cor 4:2). Son, your spirit is reborn in purity, but your soul can be hindered from generational iniquity that you may never have had anything to do with. Your sins are the manifestation of iniquity that may have not been dealt with from previous generations. David understood this when he wrote Ps 32. Each of my sons and daughters must pray to me and ask me where the iniquity first came in so that you can repent and renounce these so they no longer affect you and your children. Are you ready to ask me where there are iniquities that need to be broken? Let’s begin now.
I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord, ”And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah -Psalms 32:5
But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.
