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…
I’m so addicted right now, I see no way out. I’ve tried so many things.
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.
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!
