Overcoming Addictions

The only spiritual cure for damaging, sometimes fatal addictions is the truth of the Bible. Before you call me a simpleton for not understanding psychology, let me explain. Addictions spiritual issues and are founded and perpetuated by lies, lies like “This will make me feel better,” “I have control over it,” “It’s not a sin,” “It am not hurting anyone,” “It’s ok because I am really a good person,” “It’s ok because I do good things to balance it out,” “It is fine because God knows I love Him,” “No one will find out,” “Everyone does it,” “If you knew what I’ve been through, you would see why I need this.” There are many more lies and after a while of these lies (which are sins themselves), the truth becomes riddled with guilt and foggy at best. What is true anymore? See, these lies are plants of demonic forces, sent to deceive and ultimately destroy you and even those who dare to love you. Deception must be confronted with the truth or it continues to fester. When Jesus was tempted in the desert after not eating for 49 long days in a weakened state, He only defended Himself with Bible quotes. He did not reason or go into His upbringing or explain or joke around or use sarcasm. He said the Bible says so and so. God said so and so. And He told Him to go. Did it work? Absolutely. Bible is truth. “Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” “As you forgive, you will be forgiven.” That includes yourself. Pray, humble your heart to God, opened your Bible and just read. Truth opens your eyes and love shatters the strongholds. Resist the temptation and read the Bible more. Command the voices in your head (evil spirits) to leave in Jesus’ name.  Read more Bible. All of it is truth so read anywhere. God will help you. He loves you more than anyone can!
