Getting Over Life-Controlling Issues

Question:  How do I put God in front of life controlling issues or sin patterns I’ve had for awhile?

Answer:  Be accountable to another believer or believers who will love you, pray for you and challenge you to right living.  Admit to God and to another believer that you are powerless to overcome your life-controlling issue on your own.

Memorize scriptures that will re-orient your thinking about wrong patterns of living.

Ask God for strength to obey when you feel the urge to disobey Him and then connect with your accountability team.

Spend time with a trusted spiritual director who can help you experience God’s healing for past wounds that may fuel the sinful pattern.  Make an appointment to meet with a spiritual advisor who can direct your transformation process.

Do not expect overnight deliverance from the issue, but pray for it and keep praying as needed for your life to develop a new pattern of holiness.
