Therefore, it is impossible to make a wise decision when your perspective is muddled by sin. To identify sin, Dr. Stanley advises that you ask the Lord to show you anything that would prevent you from hearing the Truth. Indeed, He will reveal sin tendencies and patterns in your life. Next, confess and repent of these sins, agreeing with God that they are destructive. In doing so, you will begin to bring your heart and mind into alignment with God’s will.
