Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Luke 4:13 New King James Version
This is something for every addict to remember.
Do not believe for a second that if you have recovered from an addiction like alcoholism that temptation will never rear its ugly head again.
The devil will wait until an opportune time to strike you so as to defeat you.
That is why it is important to have Christian mentors and support at all times.
“Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.” Henry Ward Beecher
That is why it is important to memorize Scripture Verses to throw at him when He tempts you.
That is why it is important for you to maintain a constant relationship with Christ so the Holy Spirit will be there to help you overcome the temptation when it comes (and it will).
Christians who try to stand alone are doomed to fall. Joseph- Anthony: Green
I have used this method very successfully for many years with overcoming alcoholism.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my rescuer) for blessing me with the Divine protection You abundantly provide through Your Word, Your Spirit Helper and the mentors You so graciously provide to rescue me from the wicked ones wiles. I praise You in the name of the mighty warrior king who victoriously defeated him on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
