    Barry Bonds smashed baseballs. He was the king of the steroid era players (allegedly). Pitchers were scared of him and he walked 232 times in 2004 including 120 intentional walks. Barry annihilated the home run record with 73.

    The million-dollar question is, can we annihilate gambling? Gambling thoughts lead to ruin. Consider praying:

    “If my thoughts are darkness how great is that darkness.”

    Consider praying this prayer until you “know” that this habit causes darkness and depression. It is easier to quit if you start to become fully aware of the dark side to the habit.

    Second, gambling has a purpose. Satan’s purpose with habits is to destroy your spiritual destiny. Satan uses gambling to distract you from God’s plan. This habit is a literal fight for your purpose. When tempted, you need to see satan’s plan in that temptation. Consider praying:

    “Father, help me to flee from triggers, and help me to pursue righteousness, and love.”

    Finally, we need a great weapon against satan. The Bible is the sword. A great weapon. The more you get it in you, the better you will fight.
