If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you… Genesis 4:7
“…but you must master it.” Genesis 4:7
HOW TO MASTER YOUR ADDICTIONS
1) TURN TO GOD.
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires…but rather offer yourselves to God…For sin shall not be your master… Romans 6:12-14
WHO OR WHAT IS YOUR LORD?
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. Acts 3:19
2) SHARE THE FINAL 10 Percent — in order to become fully accountable. Don’t just give 90 percent.
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed… James 5:16
• FIND ACCOUNTABILITY.
• CREATE A CLIMATE OF ACCEPTANCE.
• KEEP IT IN THE ROOM.
3) FIGHT FOR FREEDOM.
“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.”
2 Corinthians 10:3-4
WEAPONS FOR FREEDOM:
• IRRATIONAL OBEDIENCE
• CONFIDENCE IN GOD’S WORD
• MILITANT PRAYER
“No temptation has seized you except that which is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13
