I learned how to end addiction for those trapped in it, by going through my own personal torture with it and by my near death from a life of addiction. From my total breakdown, Jesus held both my hands and walked with me to my breakthrough of Victory. Now, I walk others through it, just the way Jesus walked with me. No…it’s not by climbing any invisible ‘steps’ or by any declaration of being ‘powerless’ (no one is powerless ever). It’s not by getting some sponsor who is no better off than you are either. What’s the answer? Simple. It’s God; His name is Jesus. He’s not allah or budha or some trophy or tree. I’m speaking of the One true God…the Holy One of Israel…our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ.
The one and only change that needs to be done in your life is to get ‘born again’ of God’s Spirit. That simply means that you have a private chat with Jesus…ask His forgiveness for all that you have done that is displeasing to Him…and, promise to walk in His footprints for the rest of your life. Then, do what you have promised!
It’s not magic…it’s just God. The ‘Spill Out’ portion is a proper detox which is medically supervised for your safety. That must be done to to cleanse your body of all of the toxins brought on by the drugs and/or alcohol. At the same time this is being done, you need to spiritually detox as well. This is done by receiving Jesus as Lord or re-committing your life to Jesus if you once knew Him but fell away from your faith. This is a far greater ‘cleanse’ than the medical one because you are asking God to ‘cleanse’ you from all unrighteousness. It’s not saying words that do this…it’s your words in action. It’s a full 180 degree change from your old life to the life that God intended you to live.
The most important detail to all of this is that as soon as the ‘spill’ begins, you must fill up with God & His Holiness. How? God question. You ‘eat’ the Bible by learning all about God’s character and how much He loves you. Read from cover to cover. The Bible says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever“. With this being said, you need to learn about Him from the first book of the Bible to the last. This is the time to fill up on God’s Word and do all that He says to do. It’s not hard…just different from the rebellion you have been in since you were born. After a time, this will all became second nature to you and you joy will be full. Just as you cannot quit eating food because you will die, you cannot stop reading and learning of God or you will die spiritually and probably return to addiction and, what I call, death row.
Here’s where the rubber hits the road. Don’t just be filled with God…fill yourself to overflowing. You will always be ready to face anything with Power and a Rational Mind. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of Power and of Love and of a Sound Mind“. You will never fail. Keep in your ‘overflow’ mode also by being around other true believers. Surround yourself with people of God who will be there for you always. In these days and times, it’s a little more difficult but very do-able. Fellowship is vital for your health – spiritual and physical. I have developed a fellowship which is very powerful and healing called, Addicts No More. Come on over and have a heart to heart. We don’t judge you…we just hold you up and love you…just as God does. I am in the midst of lining up a team around the US that will make available support fellowship in addition to our online from home fellowship that is in action right now.
All that matters is that we get through this life
with peace, joy & happiness through God
End up in heaven together forever.
Your Life Matters!!!
