Satan, Addictions, Church, Mercy, Grace, Forgiveness, Hopelessness

Satan loves for us to get hooked into anything that he can used to keep us down....whether it be drugs, booze, eating, TV, sex....whatever addiction he can use....he will. But now let us call the kettle black when it is too. We allow the Devil to do this because the Bible clearly states that IF WE WILL BE IN THE SPIRIT....THEN THE FLESH CANNOT GET TO US. So there is a way out. Also you know the famous saying...."God will not allow us to be tempted above that which we are able to handle, and will give us a way to escape."

Yes.....we hear all these things.....usually out of non compassionate "Christians" who have no desire to help up even with serious prayers to overcome our addictions. So what are we to do?

I suffered from 3 addictions in my life and still do at times. The three addictions were/are: (1) Novels that I read to escape my reality, (2) food to comfort the pains of life, and (3) sex. I was lucky that drugs never got a hold of me nor did booze. Now I have conquered the first one....I refuse to read a novel no matter what....I want to live my life. The second one is my biggest problem....I let food conquer me and tear me down a lot. The third one took control of my life for hours a day, sometimes all day, and wasted years of my life in the hurt for the best that would last a life time.

Why am I writing about this and plan to continue? This morning God told me that I was to make this one of my base ministries to help others. The church, You, and others need to know what goes on in addictions, how God continually forgives the weak, how we are to forgive And help them, and to show those that suffer with addiction that their is a path, a hope, and forgiveness that is greater than we are!

Today....I want to encourage every person that suffers from addiction(s). God's love, mercy, and grace is greater than the pit of dispair that Satan can convince us we cannot get out of. Every time you give into addiction....stop as soon as you can....ask God for forgiveness....and you have it....God will continually forgive you even if you ask 100 times a day, every day of your life. Move forward and do not quit..... God loves you more than anyone could ever love you! He made you and He knows what is ahead of before you do. God will help you to overcome your addiction(s). But if you should fall....pick yourself up immediately and seek forgiveness and move forward.

Listen....I still have problems with addictions in life. Don't let them ruin you by keeping you down. Ask forgiveness and move forward. Trust in God to keep His promises to us. We can't ...BUT HE CAN!

I will continue this type of posting to help those with addictions and those who want to help loved ones with addictiions.

For now.....keep yourself and others in prayer that God will break the bands of addictions and free you and others from Satan's grip.

To God be ALL the glory!
