Stronghold Breakers For The Most Common Temptation: Stuff
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (NIV)
Use God's Words in your freedom fight against anything that would bind you. Say them aloud, as Jesus did to Satan. Satan's only choice is retreat, as God's Words are pure power. After you say a scripture, you can personalize it with your own petition(s).

'I will cry to God Most High, to God Who accomplishes all things for me' (Psalm 57:2). Father God, I ask you to break my addiction to...

'Then Jesus declared, 'I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me will never go hungry, and he who believes in Me will never be thirsty' (John 6:35).

'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God' (Luke 4:4).

'With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us, and to fight our battles' (2 Chronicles 32:8).

'And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive' (Matthew 21:22).

'Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled' (Matthew 5:6).

'...I will not be mastered by anything' (1 Corinthians 6:12).

'Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself' (Philippians 3:21).

'Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty' (2 Corinthians 3:17).

'But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord' (2 Corinthians).

'For we are his workmanship...' (Ephesians 2:10).

'For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness' (Psalm 107:9).

'I have all, and abound: I am full' (Philippians 4:18).

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
