Some Habits Are Hard to Break

You've decided to change your ways--to give up any activity that Jesus would disapprove of. But it's hard! Some activities are addictive in nature and require more than desire on your part in order to quit. Some activities require the power of almighty God.

If you have genuinely tried to quit _______ (insert your "vice") and have been unsuccessful, try admitting your helplessness to God and ask Him to take the desire away from you. Listen, if He can't do it, no one can. He's the all-powerful One. Nothing is too difficult for Him.

But the temptation is too great, you say. Not too great for God. Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world. Meaning: Satan flat out doesn't have the power to overcome God. You put yourself in God's hands and He'll grant you the power to overcome your temptations.
