CRAVINGS – Why Do I Do What I Don’t Want To Do? Book
Freedom from the failure and dysfunction brought on by addictions begins with knowing the truth about “who I am”. Cravings takes us beyond the surface of addictions and typical “do-more management strategies” and “try harder” self-help methods, into the deeper context of spiritual warfare. It exposes the lies we believe and the operation of demonic programming that controls our souls. The book offers a biblical, in depth look at the spiritual battle that goes on inside of us that makes deliverance a real part of our healing and recovery.
We are all familiar with cravings, whether they involve eating food, chemical substances, relationships, or habits. Craving is defined as a strong desire to have something, to demand, to force, through deviousness. We are torn between self-indulgence and self-control, often spending our lives trying to quit something we cannot seem to stop. Romans 6-8 sheds new light on our two fold dilemma, the demands of the Law, and the constant presence of sin in our lives. “Doing the things I do not want to do”, being subject to the cravings, “the body of death”, as Paul calls it, is not addressed with denial or diet. “Cravings” address our need for freedom from God’s point of view and yields real solutions to our entrapment.
