How to Overcome Addiction and Sin
May 18, 2012
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
I met with a young couple awhile back who shared a beautiful story of how Jesus had broken the power of addiction in their lives. This young man had recently come to Christ and was an alcoholic. He shared, “The moment I came to Jesus Christ, He took away my desire to drink instantly!”
When Jesus was living on earth, He delivered people from demonic spirits and powers. And I want you to know I believe people are still possessed and enslaved by Satan today. But Jesus can set you free. You may have an addiction, but Jesus can perform the miracle of breaking the chains of sin and the power that binds your life.
Now, God may not work that dramatically in every situation. It may take some time for a person to grow. But let me tell you this: Jesus Christ can absolutely break any addiction that you have. He can perform a miracle in your life and set you free if you will believe and trust in Him. He does this because He loves you.
So whatever addiction or sinful pattern of behavior you are experiencing in your life today, trust in Jesus to set your free, believing that by His healing power, you can be restored to wholeness!
TRUST IN CHRIST TO SET YOU FREE FROM ADDICTION AND SIN BY HIS POWER!

Unlock the Power of Persistent Prayer
If you’re like most Christians, you would agree that prayer is a vital part of a vibrant spiritual life. But when it comes to your personal prayer life, perhaps there’s a difference between what you say and what you do.
To me, the reason for this is clear: most people don’t really know how to pray. That’s why I want to send you my brand new book, The Promise of Persistent Prayer. In this book I show you how you can tap into the promises of God and open the floodgates of His blessings. And I share with you the one thing that really matters when it comes to making your prayers heard.
The Promise of Persistent Prayer is my gift to thank you for your donation to PowerPoint this month, so please request your copy when you give. It’s my hope that this book will show you how to break out of the ordinary and unlock the power of prayer in your life!
