Think to ask. Hmmm. Have I ever even thought to ask the Holy Spirit to deliver me from my porn addiction?
“THINK TO ASK,” SAY THE INSPIRED WRITINGS OF JAMES
Oftentimes we have not, because we ask not (James 4:2). Do I desire to be free of my porn addiction? The omnipotent God of the Bible is certainly ready, willing, and more-than-able to deliver me. But I must first think to ask.
... you do not have because you do not ASK (James 4:2b).

A GAME-CHANGING BOOK HAS ARRIVED
In A Way of Escape, readers are repeatedly reminded to “think to ask” the Holy Spirit to deliver them from their addictions. Readers learn how to overcome the flesh by stepping up the degree to which they “walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:16). They learn how to build a library of Spirit-anointed, flesh-diffusing apps. Apps that are uniquely fitted to them, and their unique Spirit-filling triggers.
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16).
The still-struggling now have another option. The still-struggling now have fresh hope for discovering that long-sought-after way of escape from sin and temptation (I Corinthians 10:13). A way that—because it is wholly Spirit-powered—does not require enlisting the aid of an accountability partner or group. Truly, a game-changer!
