How To Start Overcoming Your Addictive Desires

Desire is the most powerful force in life and the influencer of our actions. When we can transform the root of our addictive desires, we can live the lifestyle of our dreams. God’s gift of grace has made this possible. In the absence of God’s grace, the addictive desires we can no longer control becomes the driving force that rules our actions, emotions and thought life. When we accept God’s gift of grace to help us conquer the addictive desires we become free to live the lifestyle of our dreams. His grace makes us fit for life because His grace is the presence of eternal life that is full of righteous desire which frees us from addictive desire. The more you and I spend time in the presence of His living and powerful word, the more we encounter His righteous desire that frees us from our addictive desire(s). It is not by our works of self effort we overcome addictive desire, but by His finished work of grace which is the power, presence, provision and promise of His righteous desire being perfected in us!

So, to start overcoming your addictive desires increase the amount of time you are spending in the presence of God’s living word that is doing a work in your thought life and emotional life, strengthening your desire to start the process of change. As His righteous desire in you increases, the unrighteous desire for whatever your addiction is decreases. I would strongly suggest doing a spiritual detox that consist of focusing on how God loves you and how He desires to help you in the area of your life that is trying to destroy you. I suggest you compiling a playlist of spirit filled songs that minister to your heart, reminding you of God’s love. Take inventory of anything in your life that reminds you of your addiction, such as, places, images, people, smells, movies, food and totally separate yourself from these triggers until you regain your strength and overcome your addictive desire.
