“YOU’RE NOT HABIT-BOUND! (You Don’t Need To Pray About Your Habits!)
👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Galatians 5:24 AMP C “And those who belong to Christ Jesus (the Messiah) have crucified the flesh (the godless human nature) with its passions and appetites and desires.”
▶️ LET’S TALK
“Why the long face, Rita?” Joy asked her friend as they walked to their cell venue. “It seems as though God won’t answer my prayers,” Rita lamented.
“Why do you say that?” Joy inquired. “I’ve been asking God to take this anger away from me, but each time I get provoked, I seem to boil with a higher frequency of anger than ever before, I just can’t control it. If only God would take it away,” she bemoaned.
“Rita, you’re a new creation, and those old habits have been taken away in Christ Jesus. You’re not bound by them. What you have in you now is the fruit of the Spirit, and you’ve got to see yourself that way all the time. Soon, what you experience with anger will be a thing of the past.”
In Christ, you can’t be bound by any habit. Romans 6:14 NIV says, “For sin shall not [any longer] exert dominion over you…” because the flesh with its godless passions and appetites (habits), have been “crucified” (Galatians 5:24) That means you don’t need to pray or struggle with any addiction, habit, or sin itself, you’re in control already! All you require is to grow in the consciousness of who are in Christ.
It’s fruitless to try to be who you already are or get what you already have. If God says you’ve crucified the flesh, your role is to respond and say, “I don’t get, and can never be, dominated by sin or the flesh, because I am Christ’s. Therefore, I’ve crucified the flesh with its affections and lusts.”
Galatians 5:16 NASB says, “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” How do you walk in the Spirit? It’s by walking in the light of God’s Word. It’s by walking in the truth in Christ, in the light of your righteousness and glory in Him. Hallelujah!

Sin has no dominion over me. I live in the spirit, having crucified the flesh with its affections and lusts. I’ve overcome the world; I’m superior to Satan; I’m washed, sanctified, and justified, in the Name of the Lord Jesus! Hallelujah!
