How to Overcome Addiction and Sin

June 19, 2020 by Dr. Jack Graham

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

–2 Corinthians 12:9

I met with a young couple awhile back who shared a beautiful story of how Jesus had broken the power of addiction in their lives. This young man had recently come to Christ and was an alcoholic. He shared, “The moment I came to Jesus Christ, He took away my desire to drink instantly!”

When Jesus was living on earth, He delivered people from demonic spirits and powers. And I want you to know I believe people are still possessed and enslaved by Satan today. But Jesus can set you free. You may have an addiction, but Jesus can perform the miracle of breaking the chains of sin and the power that binds your life.

Now, God may not work that dramatically in every situation. It may take some time for a person to grow. But let me tell you this: Jesus Christ can absolutely break any addiction that you have. He can perform a miracle in your life and set you free if you will believe and trust in Him. He does this because He loves you.

So whatever addiction or sinful pattern of behavior you are experiencing in your life today, trust in Jesus to set your free, believing that by His healing power, you can be restored to wholeness!
