Christian Addiction is a spiritual battle, not having peace and joy, feelings of Guilt, Shame, and Condemnation, are all spiritual issues.
By Pastor Pat Buckley
No human Psychotherapy or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can ever compare with the truth from the Word of God (I will remember your sins no more Heb 8:12), to clear the conscious of the (underlying beliefs) of Guilt, Shame, and Condemnation from past sin, and set the foundation for freedom from these oppression’s.
What does the word spiritual mean:
Relating to, or affecting the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.
Our natural (senses, reason, intellect) minds fight it at first. Not intellectually processed, supernatural wisdom from the Holy Spirit.
We did not figure it out (being saved) from our carnal mind, only comes from the Holy Spirit.
You have been delivered out of the kingdom of darkness. Colossians 1:13
In the Book of Colossians, Chapter 1 is a prayer that would be good for you to begin praying for yourself. Verse 9 reads: “We do not cease to pray for you and to desire that you might be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding”. Paul was telling the Colossians that he prayed this prayer for them, but you can also pray it for yourself. It would go like this: “Father, I ask you to fill me with the knowledge (insight) that You have about my life as Your child.
That I would be able to see and understand what Jesus did for me on the Cross and what that means to my life today. I pray that You will also give me Your wisdom and spiritual understanding of the issue that I am dealing with so that I might see it through that Finished Work, in Jesus’ Name.”
God loves to answer prayers that we pray from His Word, Spirit-inspired prayers.
As He answers your prayer and gives you a spiritual understanding of your situation, it will bring the hope of total deliverance from any oppression.
