"Breaking the Habbit!" The most common new years resolution

"Breaking the Habbit!" The most common new years resolution!
By what I've heard, experienced, and known, breaking "that habbit" is the most common new years resolution.
Millions of people around the world begin the year with a list of things that they want to achive during the year ,
unfortunatly many of those dreams never see the light of accomplishment.
Habbits and addictions can ruin our peace steal our joy and destroy or shorten our life.Everything starts somewhere and it grows into an addiction.
Food to satisfy an unfulfilled emotional need or a yierning of love,alcohol to drawn the burdens and forget the problems,
an afair to bring a bit of joy a boost of self esteem when rejection is eating one on the inside or a fear of unsatisfy desires, Drugs to escape reality,overspending by the use of credit cards trying to convince ones self that has not fail in life and so long there is an unfulfilled emotional need there will also be an addiction to take its place.
Addiction a small word for such a vicious enemy that comes in unnoticed to kill steal and destroy our life.
Friends in order for a solution to be found one has to look at the root cause of the problem.
Questions need to be answered with honesty .
What lead the person to drugs,why drinking?
Why overeating?When did it start and why?
Why am I running away?
Whom am I try to escape from and why?
Who is that invisable enemy that I am trying to silence?
Most often the cause is unfulfilled desires and absence of love.
Love is what is lacking in the world today.Most children grow up in the hands of strangers and spend very little time with parents.Later on they may get rejected in a relationship, betrayed by friends or fail in business .
By now that love void in the heart has grown to huge proposions and has become a hunger,they try therefore to fill it by finding comfort in food, clothing,overspending, alcohol smoking or drugs.
It started with a positive thought, a bit of happiness ,an escape from stress, a bit of comfort, a hug so desperately needed, a kind word, an escape from reality,an ending to depression.......Perhaps this will do it....maybe........another mans arms...perhaps another women can understand my needs, wine...a pil....hunger for food another dessert.... chocolate.....the enemy has thrown the bait but hidden inside there is a hook and the result is Addiction.
In my experience in order for a habbit or addiction to be broken it needs a want, a burning desire and a willingness to change.The want has to be more powerful then the addiction.
But still no matter how strong the desire, the person needs power to overcome it.
The only source that supply that kind of power that I am aware of is God's word.When God's word is accepted firmly believed and acted upon, it has the power to change any test into a testimony,any trial into triumph by breaking the chains that kept the addict into bondage and setting him free.
In my personal life I have overcome great fears, childhood traumas, and emotional pain beyond measure. When I discovered how much God loves me and what the word of God said I am, what the word of God said I have, and what the word of God said I can do, my life was transformed.I no longer viewed myself as a victim because The word said that I am a victor more then a conqueror, chosen, appointed and blessed,empowered to prosper in every area of life, a masterpiece,endowed with power, given the ability to overcome all trials and temptations highly favoured and deeply loved by God.
Yes friend the moment I experienced Jesus true love I was set free!Today I help others to overcome .What is very interesting to me however is that I found that condemnation guilt and rejection been the most common hidden enemy that people try to escape from.
Yes behind most addictions that people get hooked on and also many ilnesses the cause is lack of self love.I witnessed people getting healed miraculously from terminal cancer or other ilnesses, once they were able to forgive themselves and others, and begin to love.
Today I pray that this year, the love of God will empowered you to prosper and overcome any destractive habbit or addiction that have kept you a prisoner,I pray that the Lord will fill every need in your life, that your eyes of understanding will be enlightened, I pray that you will be able to be strenghened by His power, and that you will be rooted and grounded in love, and to understand how special God has made you and how much Jesus loves you, because friend you are so special ,you are one of a kind, you are a masterpiece, and I pray now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, I ask Him to set you free for it is writen"whom the Son (Jesus) sets free is free indeed John 8:in Jesus name Amen!
