In Romans 7:14-25, Paul describes his problem as For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. (v. 19) and later he says but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members. (v. 23) I don't want to sin against God. I understand that Paul was awaiting Jesus Christ to set him free from the "body of this death". I have a sin I struggle against which has me almost convinced otherwise, that I do want to sin against God. And therefore he won't deliver me from it. I believe that it takes God to deliver my heart and change it. So how long must I wait until this work shows fruit in me? Because the devil is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.
