We Need to be Aware Of

“Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.”  1 Peter 5:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Bible Version The Holy Bible

The Important Three C’s

When trying to help a loved one that is struggling with a life-controlling problem, we need to be aware of the “Important Three C’s”: cause, control and cure.

We are not the cause of our loved ones’ problems. They are responsible for the choices they made that led to them to where they are, no matter what the circumstances may have been.

We have no control of our loved ones’ problems. As hard as we try, we cannot fix them, only God can do that. Trying to take control only leads to disaster for both you and your loved one.

Accepting this fact of powerlessness is the first step toward recovery for you as a helper. It prevents a lot of stress on your behalf.

It is impossible for us to cure our loved one’s problems, but the Bible tells us that Jesus cares and only He can help provide the proper medicine to cure our loved ones. They of course must take the medicine in order for it to be effective. We can be used to help either with or without the Holy Spirits help.

Then there are times we need to step back and allow the Holy Spirit complete control. Sometimes the problem cannot be solved with drugs nor counselling. It can only be cured by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The best way we can help others is to take steps to get them to accept they have a problem, get into Christian counselling, and work with the councillor in helping solve the problem.

If it needs the Holy Spirit to conquer the problem, the addicted one must completely surrender his or her will to that of The Holy Spirit.

And of course, through it all, we must never stop praying.

The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Rophe (Exodus 15:26 The LORD our Healer ) please bless me with the wisdom in how to help my loved one conquer their addiction. Including, when to step back and surrender it to You.

I humbly request this in the name of the greatest Healer, Jesus Christ. Amen

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
