Beth Moore is an author, teacher and founder of Living Proof Ministries. In her message at the 2011 Passion Conference, Beth explains how Christians do have hope for addictions and strongholds because God has renewed our minds.

Romans 12:1-2 (ESV)

A Living Sacrifice

1I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

The mind that has been renewed by the Spirit can think new thoughts about the old things, and this diminishes the power they have over you. God wants to remake your past to use it for mercy and ministry.
