Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word; Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You]. Psalm 119:133 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
I believe Jehovah instills in us all certain weaknesses in our spirit and in our dispositions. Try as we may we cannot conquer them even though we know they are destructive.
The reason for this is so that we learn to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. It is when we realize we are weak that we go humbly to Jehovah and request both His spiritual and mental strength to defeat these overpowering destructive traits. He answers in numerous manners.
Sometimes He will guide you to Godly councilors (which may take years before there is victory. This teaches you patience, faith and perseverance).
Sometimes our weaknesses are too strong for us to control so He teaches us to be dependent upon Him (boy has He ever come through on that one for me). Sometimes He will exorcist in on His own (to exhibit His strength so you learn to have faith in Him and depend upon Him).
Sometimes He will work in harmony with you to destroy it (this is to teach you not to be arrogant and think you do not need His help).
Chances are there are times of temptation. Even though they come from satan they are used by Jehovah to test you to see if you are strong enough (He knows whether you are or not, He just wants you to know) or if you are wise enough and have faith enough to call upon Him for help believing He will answer you.

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing with the knowledge of my strengths and weaknesses. Thank you for directing me to Godly councilors whom have helped me immeasurably to learn how to handle them to give glory to You.
Thank you that when I fail in tests You are not angry with me but rather are just teaching me I have a ways to go.
Thank you that in Your grace You help me when in need of controlling the weaknesses so as to not shame Your name.
I give all glory to You my Love in the name of He whose strength conquers all weaknesses Jesus Christ. Amen
May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah
