'WHAT ARE YOU ENSLAVED WITH?'

"While they promised them liberty; they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage" - 2 Peter 2:19
.
There are several things that many had be slaves of and they love their chains. Some are slaves of hard drugs, illicit sex, gambling, TV addiction, sleep, laziness, wasting time and so on. 
.
Peter said that a man is a slave of that which has conquered him. God made you to have dominion over everything by aren't you dominated by the things you should exercise dominion over?
.
What are you enslaved by?
.
Paul said, to whom you yield yourself servants to obey, his servant you are to whom you obey: whether of sin to death or of obedience to righteousness (Rom. 6:8). You are a slave (servant) of what you yield yourself to obey when the invitation comes.
.
You can yield your body parts as instruments of unrighteousness to sin or as instruments of righteousness to God. The likes of pornography, masturbation, sexual immorality and other forms of sin makes you an instruments of unrighteousness.
.
Which habit has defeated you that you're struggling to let go? You cannot be in control of a thing that is controlling you. Telling a man to cease fornication when he's enslaved by it is like telling an alcoholic to stop drinking.
.
The only way to overcome those things that has defeated you is to cry out to the Great Deliverer for deliverance.
