I understand where you are coming from, it is not easy. You were not put here to struggle, you are here to overcome. I know it is hard, but I also know you can overcome if you remain in Christ - it is the only way. You need to know who you are in Christ. If you have the means, please download Curry Blake’s New Man and DHT, play it constantly. I listen throughout the day, even when I’m home doing dishes etc. Even with my kids around with all their noise, I still have it playing in the background.
Write out scriptures of God’s promises to you, stick them up on your walls, have the Word continually before your eyes and confess these scripture out loud often. When you have negative thoughts & emotions, speak the Word of God, do the Word of God and you will gradually renew your mind. The Words of God must speak louder than the devils! It takes time, but don’t give up.
The only thing that can stop the power of God in our lives is us, the devil can’t stop us and God certainly won’t stop us. Don’t dam up the life, love and power of God. Let it flow out of you, and it starts to flow when you choose to believe God.
You can and will do it Chivonne, in Jesus name.
God Bless you! Dave
I also think playing Christian music at all times like Praise & Worship could help lift your spirit as well along with what David has said here.
Peace, grace, love be with you
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
First of all I have struggled the same and get tempted and we all will being Christian/Reborn to God Amen, and God is helping me in big ways, but rejoice you would not even kn0w your being tempted unless you believe in Jesus Christ Mark 4:11-12 as God has drawn you to his son for your sins John 6:44 Amen and it is a process to understand and GOD/the father is very patient with us to come to the truth. Amen
Try this scripture out, some signs of the end of times Daniel 12:8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? 9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
God is purging you, us, many, and finishing what he started in you, and it is very good to make those "proclamations" of these things to God and thank him, praise him a lot, it helps keep the devils/the temptation at bay.
So we all tend to sin in ways we are not aware, but as we say/proclaim in the LORD's prayer, as I suggest you say it out loud "proclaim with your mouth, and then pray in the spirit, but we pray "forgive us of our trespasses, our sins", Jesus Christ, shed his blood for all our sins is perfect love, but it doesn't take away all the sinful ways of what we do, forgiveness for them yes 100%, but we are cursed and the body is weak, it makes us aware we are sinners and of sin we have been used to doing all our life before we knew Jesus as he came to break those routines of sin, free the captives, Luke 4:18 and why we need redeemed and believing that makes us aware of temptation/vices/truly they are demons as it says in Ephesians 6: 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Yes we are sinners and Christ gave us power against it too, in his name, those who believe will cast out demons, but if we keep doing the things we call them vices /"demons" making worldly thinking excuses and not addressing them for what they really are, thinking some type of pill, science or Doctorly worldly ways, exercise, or modern philosophy will change your situation it wont, as they/demons can hang out keep you in bondage until your ready to face truth and stop praising their evil ways as it is a false worship, which is disobedience, rebelling against god and sinning against God, and its witchcraft of its many forms, as Satan said "he will exalt himself above God in Gods temple, which is your body, in your heart" his ways, not GODS ways Isaiah 14:13 but the truth Jesus Christ will set you free, and he who is free is free indeed, he came to set the captives, us you and me those in the world who believe Luke 4:18.
A vice/demon is bondage to Satan, as he keeps you in bondage until you stop doing these sins that bind you, Jesus told us, anyone who sins is a servant of sin, as I said it's a process of learning, understanding what we do, and not to do our old bad ways, and God can't set you free until you realize what your bad ways are, as there are many, Christ told us they hate him because I tell them their ways are bad, evil. Sadly many enjoy their evil ways but you can turn from it because Gods spirit is inside you that why you can, many can't they don't know any difference, they have what is called spirit of anti-christ, they don't believe in the son of God, we can repent, and praise the LORD for his son, if your Christs "you do know the difference" but may deny it for awhile, as much of our sin is seen as natural and normal to most man as they are not aware of it so there is no repentance to turn away of this world ways and turn to Gods ways. The more you dig into scripture, and let the holy ghost lead you, you'll get your answers my brethren.
Most can't seem to bare the full reality of the bible even though demons/evil spirits, fallen angels and Satan are all over scripture,1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
" Evil Spirits", Satan is what pulls at us> tempts us> until he and his angels are finally kicked out of heaven. near the end we will be tempted..Revelation 12:10-12
Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
I have a few videos on you-tube that explains things I've gone through and spiritual warfare/ advise by bible scripture, this is new... U.F.O's are Identified 100% https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnfpp9yq-G4
And no 1. make sure you stay to scripture, don't believe any thing that is contrary to bible teaching, its one way how demons make deals with men.
