Numbers 33:51 – 53
“Speak to the Israelites and tell them: When you cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan, 52 you must drive out all the inhabitants of the land before you, destroy all their carved images and cast idols, and demolish all their high places. 53 You are to take possession of the land and settle in it, for I have given you the land to possess.
The devotion shared yesterday (http://personaloutreachministry.com/victory-over-addiction/) speaks about victory over addiction. There is no doubt that the love of God casts out all roots of addiction. However, the Lord calls us to cast out all memories, materials, relationships pulling you back into sin. “When you cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan, you must consciously destroy all the enemies of God.
Mathew 11:12 speaks about the violence suffered by the kingdom of God and how we take it by violence.
Dear friend the battle for your soul is great you must fight back with all you have. Mathew 5:30 goes to the length of advicing you cut off whatever part of your body leading you to sin. Cutting off is not taking a knife to bring it out… It is pulling totally away from it. Hebrews 12: 4 “In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.” You must resist sin up to the last point. Fight back! fight for your soul!
