Joseph Prince short sermon - Are you tired of trying so hard? - online. Got a hard habit to break? Or do you feel like you’re up against the toughest of challenges? Press play to get a glimpse of how God can lead you to victory over them.
Someone may have a smoking problem, and he tries to repress. Lord, I'm gonna do this for you Lord. I'm not gonna smoke any more. I'm not gonna smoke. It doesn't work. You're trying not to fulfill the lust of the flesh so you can walk in the Spirit. You got it the other way around. Walk in the Spirit. Tell the Lord “What’s happening Lord? Why am I going back to smoking?” and the Lord says: “You're under stress.” the Spirit of God will lead. Right you’ve been doing this, you've been doing that, because you're stressed. And, son, I want you to sleep earlier from now on.” Or, “son, I want you to enjoy more time with your children. Son, I want you to go out with your wife.”
Whatever... “No, the Spirit will never tell you that.” But the funny thing is that, as you do that, He removes your stress. When He removes your stress, all of a sudden the desire for smoking falls out. Not every smoking problem is because of stress, but in this particular case, the Spirit of God can lead you into freedom. He always leads you into Jubilee. He always leads you into freedom. He always leads you into victory. Now thanks be to God Who leads us to victory.
