All individuals around the world are struggling to overcome addictions of some sort. One of the most common dependence of all age groups is smartphone addiction. Overcoming addictions is easier said than done.
According to my understanding, we need human willpower to combat addictions, but we need something extra, that is, God-given strength and determination. Let’s ponder the words of Paul.
12“All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything. (1 Corinthians 6:12 ESV)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Can You give me the willpower and strength to overcome my addictions?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray for the willpower and strength to overcome your addictions.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Tell your small group about your struggles and attempt of overcoming a particular addiction, and conclude it with a prayer.
