Throughout the Gospels, Jesus is approached by people who, in faith, ask for healing. In fact, he once healed a man who was ill for 38 years. Another was blind from birth, but Our Savior gave him sight. Surely both of these men may have had doubt originally, yet once they encountered Jesus, they believed. The addictions, vices or habits that have a grip on us are never stronger than the Lord’s power to break the chains that hold us back. Avoid being deceived into thinking there are just some things that cannot change about ourselves. Miracles occur in God’s time, not ours—so we must be patient and do the hard work of converting our will to God’s. Never give up. In faith, ask God for healing and transformation.
