May this not bring condemnation to anyone.
Our life is a continual process of learning and growing and wanting to be complete over comers, KNOWING WE ARE OVER COMERS IN HIM, we all want to experience the the manifestation of the victory Jesus won for us.
I am going to share a thought with you, my heart is so heavy today.
I feel for the struggling ones. Hang in there.
Years ago in my 30s I sought the LORD daily, wanting more of Him and less of me!
Soooo much less of me. Soooo much More of Him.
I felt so helpless at times and weak – I felt so weak in my flesh, but I wanted Jesus more than I had or more than was manifesting in my life.
I smoked cigarettes and it was such a hindrance. I fought that battle for years.
There is plenty of condemnation out there from those who probably never had a habit, or they were delivered right away…..
But for those who have not been delivered yet away, there is hope.
You hold on and don’t ever give up, because of the condemnation and lies, because God WILL deliver you in His time, HE will not fail you.
I inquired of the LORD, “Why?” at one point in my life, Why had He not delivered me or given me strength to just lay that habit down…….?
May this not offend anyone, but the LORD told me, “When you want ME more than you want a cigarette, I will deliver you!”
I wanted His anointing. I had a call to ministry, but my flesh wanted to keep a hold on this habit!
When I heard those words, I knew I wanted God more.
I fought that battle even harder with the Word. I even went to classes to quit and it cost a lot of money to do that.
God could have taken it away from me, but He let me fight it out.
Do not come under condemnation for anything you are asking God for help in.
Do not take the stones thrown at you, just keep pressing in. You will come through it all victoriously. He will anoint you for a life of service for Him.
May the religious spirits be silenced. There is no politically correct way. God is always going to do it His way and in His time.
Just sharing. May you want God more than your fleshly desires and overcome quickly, I pray.
