“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 New International Version
We all have addictions that enslave us. Try as we may they will always conquer us. This leaves us feeling crushed and defeated.
Why not do the smart thing and hand it over to the perfect power source Jesus Christ.
When we completely surrender it to Him, He will conquer our demons.
Make no mistake about it, our addictions are demon possessed and we are too weak to defeat them.
I know because of my addiction, alcohol.
Try as I may I could not defeat my addiction. Sometimes it literally felt as if someone was pushing me into the liquor store and picking up the bottle even though on the inside I was screaming no, no.
Finally in desperation I cried out to Jesus and told Him if He does not free me from this demon I am going to die in a pile of puke in a drunken stupor. Instantly I was sobered up and have not touched a drop since.
That does not mean the demons do not come back to tempt me but I always call upon Jesus rather than depend upon myself and He has never let me down.
It is the same thing when we know we are going to face difficult situations.
Many times when we depend upon ourselves we fall flat on our faces with disastrous result.
Sometimes when I was a teacher I would walk into a certain class thinking it will be a breeze and failing miserably. At break I would find a quiet place and quietly pray for Jesus’ help and having a great class afterwards.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with Your divine providence to free me from the addictive shackles that we dragging me into hell and with Your divine provision in all times of need. I extol You in the name of He who always provided for His diciples Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
