Yes, it begins with your decision, because that is God’s image within us – the freedom of choice.
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, that freedom to choose that was in them, in doing their own will against the will of God. The devil let them disobey God using their freedom of choice. He enthroned that human will in man. 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.
Ezekiel 36:26 “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 a heart of flesh.”
