The ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world Revelation 12:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
“Satan never sells his poisons naked — he always gilds them before he vends them.” — Charles H. Spurgeon
This is how addiction begins.
Satan is a great fisherman. He makes deadly lures look like delightful delicacies. Sure it feels good to begins with but once he has you hooked you can squirm all you like but you are his. That is addiction
There is only one way to escape his deadly lure. His name is Jesus.
When you repent of your sins and depend upon the power of Christ, Jesus will smash those chains and set you free.
So if the Son makes you free, you will be free for sure. John 8:36 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version
That was the only way I was freed from alcoholism. I was and alcoholic for over forty years. I tried diet, counselling, meditation all to no avail. When I finally surrendered it to Christ the chains were instantly smashed and I have been free of them for ten years now. It was the same experience with smoking.
Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Moshiekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16) The LORD my Savior for blessing me with smashing the chains of addiction which satan tricked me into enslaving me. Thank you for Your salvation which lead me away from satans wiles and into Your Holy loving sphere that leads me ever closer to You. I exalt You in the name of He who defeated satan on resurrection day Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
