For anyone who has struggled with an addiction, whether it is your phone, video games, Netflix / Disney +, food, drugs, medication, alcohol, sports, or relationships can feel impossible to walk away. That struggle is between sinful natures desires and the Holy Spirit. They conflict with one another, and it can feel like a real battle of wanting to do what is right and not being able to. So, what can we do? We must use weapons not of this world- but weapons that have divine power to destroy things that are holding us hostage. Use of these weapons allows us to take captive those internal struggles and make them obedient to Christ.
Questions for further thought:
1. Did any of those items listed above make you feel like a prisoner?
2. Do you find comfort or hope in either of these verses?
Challenge: Read the verses. Insert your name and the item holding you prisoner. You can do this anytime.
