Have you ever tried to moderate something in your life, when really it needs to be obliterated? Some of us may think of our daily infusion of Coke or coffee, cigarettes, sweets… For others, alcohol, drugs, sex/porn may come to mind. Whatever it is, we can’t seem to “moderate” it; even a little of it in our veins seduces us all over again. I myself have naively said in the past, “Everything in moderation!!” In reality that does not always work. We are human beings, in need of being filled! …So what are we filling ourselves with? Is it truly benefiting us, or does it just feel good? Lets be honest here… not everything that feels good is good for us… in fact it can be destroying us until we wake up to its destructive power over us. We may even justify with, “We’ll this isn’t hurting anybody….,” when in truth, in our limited human vision we just don’t see that it really is. I myself struggled with something for years, and until I got rid of it COMPLETELY from my life, it still had its claws of power imbedded in me. I praise God Almighty for freeing me! Only Jesus had the power to do win a battle I couldn’t.
May I encourage you today that if you are struggling with something controlling you, to get the help that you need. Make the personal choice to let go of it COMPLETELY. Moderation is just away of keeping a harmful thing in you. If you need professional help, get it, and from a reputable source. ~~I have to say that I personally believe that at the core of every addictive battle is a spiritual one. In my case, it was only by acknowledging the spiritual core of the issue that I was able to be set free from it. I needed more than earthly tools to overcome, I needed the supernatural power of God Almighty, which He joyfully gave to me!
Some of you need to understand this as well… that at the heart of your physical/mental/emotional battle is a spiritual one… that there is an Enemy out there who prowls around like a lion looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). Satan delights in your struggle, he feeds your addictive behavior. He is a thief and he comes to steal, kill and destroy your life (John 10:10a). Until you acknowledge this, you may always feel the tinge of his claws in your skin.
I pray that you come to know the great love of God for you in Christ Jesus, and that His Power is greater than any earthly power over you! Jesus came that you would have life, and life to the FULL! (John10:10b). Fill yourself with Christ and know what true life is (1 John 5:20)!
