“So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.” ~James 4:7-10 [MSG]
Addiction comes in many forms which God offers to helps us break from in His Word. Various types of addiction include drinking alcohol to smoking cigarettes to watching television etc. The scripture basically says that you can overcome addiction by allowing God to ‘work his will in you’ and by recognising things that come from the Devil and yelling a loud no to them. Over time certain addictions can break as the Holy Spirit guides you to move away from them and thus changing or replacing your habits with new Godly ones. Submission to God whereby you ‘get down on your knees before the Master’ acts as the catalyst for change that allows you to break from addictions.
