The unknown can be a scary place. We might ask God to guide us through the maze…
God, I’m not even sure if you exist, but I know I want to be free from of this habit. My motives are selfish and not totally pure, and I might be blind to other things in my life that also need changing, but I ask You to open my eyes to who you are, and to my need of you. Come close to me. Open my mind as I continue in my life, and give me the courage to do what I should do.
It’s not hard to imagine that anyone could break habits if they had didn’t have the supernatural power of God flowing through them. Its also hard to believe that we have the ability, right now, to tap into this power, but our beliefs prevent us from doing so. One of our biggest stumbling blocks is to think that we are so contaminated, or that God is too Holly for us to relate too. The fact is – we are, but we must develop a belief, deep within that God has paid the "cleaning bill" for us when He gave up his life on the cross.
No doubt the power of God would surely blow us apart, and his perfection makes Him unreachable. When Jesus was crucified the guilty people and the innocent people traded places. Jesus, the only human to ever live a perfect life, allowed himself to be treated as if He were morally corrupt, so that anyone who agrees to be part of this exchange can be treated as being innocent. Wow, what a profound statement.
