“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines
the course of your life.” ~ Proverbs 4:23
Addiction is slavery to an idol in one’s life.
Addiction occurs when one looks to a false god instead of the one true God to supply one’s need. Addiction surrenders to false pleasure despite adverse consequences.
There are many types of addiction: alcohol, drugs, sex, food, computer, sports, money. Any idol in one’s life is an addiction.
Certain programs can help one manage addiction. But ultimately, only Jesus Christ can set one completely free. Why? Because getting free from addiction requires supernatural power.
Scripture says this in John 8:36: “So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.” Let the supernatural power of the Son of God set you free. Only then will you be truly free.
