Psalm 1: 2-3

Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.

Sin shall not have dominion over you.

No temptation has seized you except that which is common to man. And God is faithful, he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand under it. (1 Corinthians 10: 12-13).

When the scripture declared that as believers are no longer under the dominion of sin and then went on to also declare that those who have been born of God cannot sin any more, the word of God was not ignoring the reality of the proneness of the flesh to sin, neither was it being unrealistic in making these claims. While these claims are positional truths, the word of god on the other hand clearly provide us more insights and heavenly wisdom on how we as believers can attain to these positional truths.
