Read: Romans 6:11-18
“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” Romans 6:16
Today, many teenagers are addicted to all sorts of things such as drugs, music, alcohol, TV series, betting et cetera. Whatever you are addicted to determines where your time, resources and efforts in life will be channelled. Behind every addiction is a spirit. This spirit controls the addicted such that other aspects of his/her life are affected.
For example, a guy who is a addicted to gambling or betting would be compelled by demons to continue spending his allowance or earnings on the same, while other areas of his life that need funding, suffer. Even when he realizes the consequences of his habit, he may not be able to stop because the demons will keep encouraging him to try his luck.
A girl who is addicted to a TV series will not perform as well as she could academically. Also, her chores will suffer and this will make her deficient in some areas of life. The time such a teenager should invest in studying and personal improvement would be wasted on pleasure and entertainment. Are you addicted to food, clothes, porn, drugs, masturbation or premarital sex? Its time to break free and repent today.
Father, please break every hold of addiction over my life, in Jesus name.
