"...you are that one's slaves whom you obey."

Romans 6:16

     The first thing you must be willing to admit when you begin to examine what controls and dominates you is that you are the one responsible for yielding yourself to whatever it may be.

     If you are a slave to yourself, you are to blame because somewhere in your past you yielded to self if you obey God then you do so because you have yielded yourself to Him.

     There is no power with the human soul that is capable of breaking the bondage of yielding.  No escape is possible without the power of redemption.

     You must humbly yield yourself to the only One who can break that domination;  The Lord Jesus Christ.

     When you yield to something it automatically controls you.  You may say "I can stop anytime I choose..." but you will find you cannot.  You are now it's slave, because you yielded to it.  Only by yielding to Jesus can He break any and every kind of slavery in a person's life.

"Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die, for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God."

Revelation 3:2
