True Repentance

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me. ( Pslm. 51:10) David asked God to create a clean heart and a right, persevering, steadfast spirit in him. This is an example of true repentance and a great example of recognizing that something in him needed to change. Many times we repent, but do we recognize that something in us may also need to change. As children of God, we need to realize that God has given us, the believer, power to overcome sin and not to give in to it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 (AMP) For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.
Now knowing this, do we really have to give in to sin?
