    Do Not Be Dismayed from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about becoming “Dismayed.” To be dismayed means “to be downcast, disappointed, disheartened, filled with terror.” It replaces hope and will lead you to a dark place. We become ineffective and...

Let Freedom Ring

  • If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36 WEB

    I took one last draw and put the cigarette out. That was over twenty years ago, and it was the last time that I ever smoked. Not long before this, I had thought that smoking was a great pastime. Growing up on a farm in the South and working in tobacco, everyone that I knew smoked. Well, except for one strange guy, but no one wanted to be like him. By the age of ten, I was smoking regularly, just like the rest of my family.

    Years later, while smoking about three packs a day, the Lord suddenly took the desire to smoke away from me. It is not that smoking was a sin, it was because I was in bondage to it and I wanted to be free, but could not seem to break its power. He delivered me, and I have never wanted another cigarette. They make me nauseous when I am around them now and give me a headache. He reversed my thought pattern. Something that I had thought was great, was now sickening to me. The Lord set me free.

    Don't get stressed out when you fail while trying to quit something. Instead of struggling with it, pray for the Lord to remove your desire for it. Ask Him to set you free from it. Pray something like, "Lord I want to stop this, please take the desire away from me in Jesus name." Then give it time. The Lord can set you free from any bondage if you are serious about it, and when He sets you free, you are free indeed.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that You deliver me from the things that bind and control me. Break the shackles off of me and sever the ropes that hold me captive. I want to be completely free of the bad things in my life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer" (Psalm 17:6) If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

That's why the 12 -step programs work--they remind us to surrender our addictions to God! ALL addictions can be conquered in His name.
