Yes, it begins with your decision, because that is the God-given image that is within us.
The devil knew that and exploited it when man was still innocent. Satan Lucifer, the devil deceived Adam and Eve by letting them use that power of choice in doing their own will. In fact, he enthroned that will, and unfortunately, the will of man was used to disobey.
So, Satan Lucifer exploited that choice to deceive them. He let them disobey using their freedom of choice. That was the beginning of the implantation of the serpent seed within us, which is the spirit of disobedience to the Father’s Will.
Surrendering the serpent seed within you begins with your decision. It begins with your choice.
“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.”Ezekiel 36:26
