How many times have you let moral injunctions try to lead you and end up in failure? Paul in Romans chapter 7 says, 'every time'. So then, we can conclude, we can let God rule and not rules.
"I have found the unbreakable law, that evil is present in me and is the very one who is trying to do good." (Romans 7:21, DLT)
Then how do we live? By trusting the One who both declares a thing and then does it, God.
