Biblical help with drug addiction~Guest Post at

Drug addiction…pure joy? Hardly.

Drug addiction often seems impossible to overcome. It cannot be done alone, yet it’s deemed so shameful it’s difficult to share with anyone to get help. So many people attempt to overcome it alone, which Satan just loves. Because the brain is affected so specifically in drug addiction, going it alone just gives Satan a welcome invitation to set up residence in your brain. He will justify all of the wrong decisions you make. Loneliness is one of Satan’s most powerful tools.

God, however, can take WHATEVER addiction you are dealing with and use it for his glory. Instead of pleading and whining to God, specifically ask him what his purpose is for you life. Genuinely seek his plan. He will gladly share that plan with you when you ask in humbleness and complete faith.

If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask him and he will gladly tell you, for he is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask him; he will not resent it. (James 1:5 TLB)

  1. Thank you for this good reminder of not trying to go through addiction alone . . . the enemy uses isolation and shame to keep us in bondage. Love your blog, Celeste!

    • Thanks Verna…there are so many types of addiction and Satan loves for us to believe we are the only ones battling it. Thanks for keeping up with my blog, Verna. I need time to read more! I can’t keep up 🙁

  2. Thanks, Celeste. Addictions aren’t always substances, so this is a good word for EVERY addiction, even the ones we don’t realize may be entangling us.

    • Thanks Susan, you are so right. Some addictions are just much more difficult than others. Psychological addictions and physical addictions bring very different challenges. Michelle Cushatt began a recent post comparing her addiction to her computer/facebook/twitter with the addictions of a lifetime drug addict. Reading that comparison made me pause, realizing just how different they are. You truly cannot understand drug addiction until you’ve experienced it, but I certainly wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

  3. Thanks for sharing. I read many of your blog posts, cool, your blog is very good.
