Satan’s Lies | God’s Replies: Day 6 Addict

Ok, for some weird reason the author of the reading plan changed it from Satan’s Lie to Bible Study for today. But it is still a lie that we addicts believe…

Satan’s Lie:
I’m so addicted right now, I see no way out. I’ve tried so many things.

God’s Reply:

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 8:31‭-‬32 KJV

As an addict myself, I tried and tried to quit watching pornography and masturbating to it for decades. And everytime I would fall right back into the same routine.

A couple of weeks clean…maybe. And everytime I felt like…why even try anymore. Nothing is working. So I would keep watching until I felt the need to stop again. Over and over and over again.

Addiction sucks!

But…

There is a way out of an addictive life. And it IS found through a personal relationship with Jesus. No religious dogma! No denominational malarkey. Jesus!

It wasn’t until I truly and finally surrendered to Him that changes in my behavior and heart started to take place.

And then one night God hit me over the head with a two-by-four. You can read about it here, if you would like to. Warning… it’s brutally honest.

One of, if not the biggest gut wrenching nights of my life. But I did a complete turn around! And it is because I said here God take this crap I do not want it anymore!

Freedom is so awesome!

It can be yours too!

Give it to God! He wants to take it away from you anyway! Become accountable to someone you trust! Pray! And watch God move more in one week than you could in 50 years!

  1. Thank you, Stu, for sharing your faith and testimony! It takes courage, but we are all wounded healers. Your ministry is so powerful and so needed. Our family has lost loved ones to addiction, so it goes deep in my heart to read about someone who is/has overcome. May God continue to bless and keep you!

    1. Thanks Melissa. Some days it’s easy to share and then some days it hard as heck. Not my faith necessarily but my past mistakes. But as God told me in the beginning you can not help anyone if you haven’t walked through it and come out the other side. I was struggling with it when I started my ministry on Facebook and even here for a bit. Im just grateful He brought me through it.

      Sadly the addict doesn’t understand the devastation they are inflicting until they start wanting to get clean. But even that will not stop some 😦

      I’m so sorry your family has lost loved ones to addiction 😦

      Thank you for your kind words and encouragement Melissa!

  2. Yesterday, the devil began to sow some destructive thoughts in my mind, but this morning the Spirit of God met him still hovering there and addressed his crap: “you, devil, know nothing about freedom, and anything you try to offer anyone in the name of freedom is a lie, because you are bound by death and your end is destruction.” That shut him right up. This post helped me remember. Thank you, Stu.

  3. The gut wrenching hold of sin is so powerful. Praise His Holy name God is far more powerful.
    “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” – Philippians 4:13
    Praying for you!
