Addiction is a powerful brain disease which is very difficult to conquer, and there are people who have lived almost their whole life fighting the disease.
Research has shown that, it is quite difficult for an individual to fight off addiction on their own, and they need an external help to get better.
Some people are not aware of the fact that, God helps in breaking free from addiction. They are probably concerned that, God has other important matters to attend to, and their addiction problem is not something God would worry himself about.
However, it is interesting to note that, God is interested in all aspects of our lives, including our addiction.
Addiction entraps our heart, and it affects our relationship with God; it strains our walk with God. For those who believe in the concept of a higher power, it affects their belief in the long run.
One of the tricks of the devil, is to make you depend on a harmful activity or substance, giving a false sense of normalcy. This makes us to lose our identity in the sight of God.
Someone who is addicted will not be able to view himself or herself in a worthy manner. They are usually of the belief that they are rotten, and nothing can be done to help them.
God is our heavenly father, and he is the only one who would accept us, even if the world rejects us, and turns our back against us.
Our basis for creation, is to be dependent on God for the purpose of being loved, experiencing peace, security and the likes. God loves us even though we feel shameful and worthless.
Coming to the realization that God loves us so much, and this is the only thing which can rid us of the scars of our past, that is when we can move forward.
When you invite God into your heart, you will experience the peace and love of God which is higher than all understanding, and would free you from the grips of addiction.
