God wants to guide our steps. He wants to comfort us and give us peace. He longs to hold us in His arms and take the load off our shoulders.
O, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

With any addiction or compulsion, there is an element of habit involved. We turn to the same foods, the same friends, the same haunts that have tripped us before and made us fall.

The rough part is our strong will power.
Our desire for our own will makes it hard for us to submit to God's will.
A man's mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.
Proverbs 16:9 Amplified
1. We make decision
2. God shows us the strategy to fulfill the decision
3. When we flounder, we reinforce our decision to God.
4. God provides the strength to make it.
