A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death. God went for the jugular when he sent his own Son. He didn’t deal with the problem as something remote and unimportant. In his Son, Jesus, he personally took on the human condition, entered the disordered mess of struggling humanity in order to set it right once and for all. The law code, weakened as it always was by fractured human nature, could never have done that. The law always ended up being used as a Band-Aid on sin instead of a deep healing of it. And now what the law code asked for but we couldn’t deliver is accomplished as we, instead of redoubling our own efforts, simply embrace what the Spirit is doing in us. Romans 8:2-4

The power of the Holy Spirit is available to us to help us to fight and overcome our dependencies and compulsions. It means looking outside of ourselves, getting into personal relationship with God to gain access to His power.

God program of recovery is more than able to help us overcome any and every problem that exists or arises in our lives. We can follow his program of daily godly living through the the power of His Holy Spirit living in and through our lives .
