Addiction…it is a powerful thing. We always think of drugs and alcohol when we think of addiction but can I say that addiction can be just about anything and it can and will control your life. It is anything we are dependent upon. In I Corinthians 6:12 Paul says, “Everything is permissible for me,” but not everything is helpful. “Everything is permissible for me,” but I will not be brought under the control of anything. ” So, might I ask, what is controlling you? Is it drugs, alcohol, tobacco, your phone, eating too much, TV or TV shows, sex, or money (to name a few)? Addiction is a stronghold and it is like a vice grip on your life. It is not God’s will that you be under the control of anything and thankfully, by the power of the Blood of Jesus and Holy Spirit those chains/addictions can be broken. We have to be ready for change. We have to want it to go. We have to be desperate.
II Corinthians 10:4 says, “since the weapons of our warfare are not worldly, but are powerful through God for the demolition of strongholds.” No stronghold can stand against the power of Almighty God. If you are ready for change, God is waiting for you.
Father, in the Power of Jesus’ name I pray for those who find themselves caught up in addiction and want to be free and are helpless in doing so without you. I pray right now that those who are bound, be set free by the blood of Jesus Christ. According to YOUR WORD, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but they are mighty through YOU for the pulling down of these strongholds! It is done, by faith we believe and receive freedom in the name of Jesus Christ. Where satan has meant to steal, kill and destroy, You have brought life to through Jesus Christ. Amen!
