You Can Break the Cycle (3)

“One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see.”        Jn 9:25 NKJV

When Jesus restored this blind man’s sight, the Pharisees tried to engage him in a theological debate about who Jesus was and where His power came from. But he refused to argue with them. He simply said, “One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see.” And the same arguments still continue today. Some people say, “The day of miracles is past.” The truth is that there is no day of miracles, there’s only a God of miracles who says, “I am the Lord, and I change not” (Mal 3:6). The Bible says, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and forever” (Heb 13:8). That means what He was, He still is. What He did, He still does. What He said, He still says. Whatever your problem may be, you have two choices: Live with it and try to adjust to it, or believe God to set you free from it. Certain things like alcoholism, addiction, and abuse may run in your family, but by the grace of God you can break the cycle! Please hear this: God’s power is greater than your habit! Not only can He set you free from the thing that holds you captive, He can deliver you from its lingering effects. His Word to you is: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way” (Isa 43:18-19 NIV). So turn to God today. Give Him a chance. You’ve tried other things. Now try Him. He will not fail you!
