FREEDOM FOR A FIGHTER
BIBLE TEXT: ACTS 9:1-6
MEMORY VERSE: “O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” (ROMANS 7:24).
Former heavyweight boxing champion, George Foreman, was a heavy drinker. He drank anything from water to spirit. But, as he recounts in his book, God in My Corner, on one of his birthdays, he got so drunk that he could not remember what happened that night. The next day, he ran into his friend who had been badly beaten up, and had a swollen eye with other bruises. He asked to know what happened. “Don’t you remember?” the friend retorted. “You beat me up last night!” That stunned George and shook him so much that he decided to never take another drink of alcohol in his life.
Do you have a bad habit which you think is difficult to quit? Yours could be indulgence in examination malpractice, disobedience or insubordination to your parents or school authority, involvement in cultism, drug addiction, careless use of your tongue, pornography, or other forms of immoral practices. And with these practices, you cannot make heaven. But remember that with God, all things are possible. Just pray and yield to Him.
QUOTE: With God, all things are possible.
CHALLENGE: Do you have a bad habit?
PRAYER: Lord, take away any bad habit from me.
