        I was talking to someone yesterday. They want to quit. I told them they needed to give up ______. They said, “I am not giving that up.” Everyone who can’t quit either need to give up something they are currently doing or/and start doing something that they currently are not doing. If you choose to ignore one of these things, you are not “desperate” to quit.

        Second, many Christians fail to quit because they have wrong motives. The correct reason to quit is so that we can serve Christ. I had a very hard heart. It took me many years of praying:

        “Father, help me to care about souls,” to finally start caring. I never knew that my “not caring” was keeping me in sin. I did suspect that my sin was keeping me from caring.

        Third, some people fail to quit because they dip a bit in the occult.

        Leviticus 19:31 ESV “Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God.”

        I avoid witchcraft like the plague. Some churchgoers sit back and dip a bit. Just say no.

        Fourth, confess that hidden sin.

         ESV Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”James 5:16

        Fifth, obey the command to be baptized in water. It is hard to get free if you won’t even obey that command. Even if you were baptized as an infant, consider doing it again as an adult.

        Today, consider if one of these 5 hindrances is hindering you. If not, consider praying about what is:

        “Father, help me to avoid triggers, and show me why I can’t quit.”

        There are reasons why enslaved people stay enslaved. But God will reveal those reasons clearly if you keep on repenting, studying, and praying.
