I Too Have Struggled With This Issue, But It’s Not Impossible To Overcome
WeUsed2bu friendÂ shares her words of encouragement onÂ the recentÂ posting, ‘ I Thought I Was Strong And Had Overcome This Temptation’. Thank you for sharing sister.
I too have struggled with this issue but its not impossible to overcome. I’ve learned that even the strongest addiction can be conquered if we just lean on God. The very fact that you are reaching out for help is so good. You have to want to change. For me, I got to the point where I was so tired of feeling condemned and guilty, and I was tired of breaking God’s heart. I realized that every time I fell in and gave into my struggles, I was breaking His heart and that made me so sad. He loves us so much, we are His precious creations. You can overcome this, you are not stupid. I’m a living witness to how God can deliver us from the exact same addiction you are experiencing. Just cry out to Him for help and stand on His word. Spend time with Him everyday, talk to Him, He’s listening. Before you know it, the scream of temptation, that addiction, will be a dull, insignificant whisper. I say that b/c the enemy is always going to try to tempt us but you have to be strong and rebuke him out loud. I always say, ” the devil is a liar and I rebuke him in Jesus’ name! And when the very thought of sin pops into my mind I say out loud, ” I’m am not the person I used to be, I’m not going back to that, I am a new creation in Jesus!” When you can’t say it out loud, whisper scriptures to yourself, remember them. Hide God’s word in your heart my love. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He loves you and He is faithful!
