Find the Way Out

        The Bible says we can find a way out from temptation. One way out is to find an article that addresses our current situation. I have over 40 titles at this site to choose from. Example: An article on prayer is great, but if you are totally frustrated, it is better to review an article on frustration.

        Sometimes, no title seems perfect for your situation. In that case, spend 3 minutes in prayer, and ask the Holy Spirit to help you find an article.

        Second, verses on drinking/drugs fight off temptation, but when you don’t have time for that, consider praying Jesus’ blood over the temptation. My last few days have been up and down, and temptation is coming out of the blue. So, I am picturing the cross and thanking Jesus for the blood He shed for me on the cross. It is working for me.

        Finally, consider praying often about finding key articles that could help you go to war with problems that cause you to fall over and over again. Deep-seeded problems need to be pounded on repeatedly. Finding an answer is step one. Step two is reading solutions over and over again until you start thinking about the solutions in key situations.

          What if we were given a brand new start to life? Put into paradise in the Garden of Eden. Everything brand new except that we still have our same old thoughts and ways of thinking. What advice would really help you change your life and get rid of this addiction?
          I would say: “Dear Self, you are getting some of the destruction out of your life by reading several chapters of the Bible which has increased your faith. You are spending time in prayer every day which has helped you learn why and how to overcome sin and addiction. You are focusing on treating others with love and praying about being filled with love. This has caused you to realize that people are more important than any addiction. You are focused on finding and fulfilling your purpose which is filling you with joy.
          But remember, satan will come into the garden. He will bring new updated tricks and temptations. But they will be the same old tricks and temptations disguised as something new and great. So today and every day focus on the fact that _____ steals your joy. Focus on the fact that sin steals your joy. Focus on the fact that being a slug and not fighting to fulfill your purpose steals your joy. Instead choose Christ who fills you with joy.”
          Today, start a habit of Bible reading, prayer, and a focus on being filled with God’s love. These habits will start to squeeze out some habits that are killing you.
