Ask for Help

Ask for Help

James 5:16

Addictions, habits, or negative attitudes can wear you out. If you need deliverance from some wrong behavior, the Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is your Helper (see John 14:15). Confess your need to God, and ask Him to deliver you.


He may lead you to confess your faults to other believers whom you can trust to pray for you. The Word says that we are to confess our faults to one another so that we may be healed and restored.  If you are out of control in some area, be honest about it. Today can be your day of deliverance.


Eliminate Excuses


Deuteronomy 23:14

If a habit is controlling you, you will not enjoy the best that God has to offer you. Don’t make excuses for bondages that seem to have a hold on you. Denial and excuses will keep you from enjoying your life.


Whether it is an eating disorder or a bad temper, you cannot blame it on your genes or your family. God makes a way of escape for us and promises a good life for those who are born again.  Claim your rights as a child of God. Say. “I am a new person in Christ; I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (see Philippians 4:13).
