Are you addicted to drugs, gambling,etc
is the answer
Are you addicted to drugs, gambling, smoking, sex, pornography, the internet, social media, shopping, television, video games, eating disorders, etc? Most of us have had some of these things in the past, but we had self-control and wisdom not let ourselves to be overtaken by them.
Drugs, gambling, smoking and all these other things mentioned above, are extremely bad, and we are warned about them as being a bad habit or vice, but what starts as experimentation, as a joke or simply something to please our peers ends up in an uncontrollable addiction that will stay with us.
It is very difficult to overcome behavioral addictions or addictions to substances; the process of rehabilitation is prone to failure because it all depends on our own will, which is weak and surrenders to pleasure.
God is the answer. Man was made for the world, not the world for man, we were created for God, not for ourselves. As difficult as it may be to accept and understand this philosophy, this is what Christ revealed to us.
He is the way to eternal happiness, but we try to find happiness in the world when He himself calls us to deny ourselves to the flesh, the world, and the devil.
All the restraints to the evils that destroy our bodies and souls are contained in the ten commandments. God's law is also written in our hearts, and our conscience is quick to reproach evil when it comes, but has to give up when we let evil govern our lives.
If we become casualties of the traps of the devil in this world and become addicted to something, we must not look for answers in the world, the answers are in our hearts, God has the answer in his Law, we must fear God and overcome anything that will jeopardize our relationship with Him through prayer.
The Lord says: (NIV)
1 Corinthians 15:33
Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character.
1 John 2:16
For everything in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, comes not from the Father but from the world.
1 Corinthians 6:12
I have the right to do anything, you say, but not everything is beneficial. I have the right to do anything, but I will not be mastered by anything.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. Titus 2:12
(The Grace of God) It teaches us to say No to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,
Matthew 16:24 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.
I look a the world with sadness. I created a paradise for everyone to enjoy, but the disobedience of man destroyed my good purpose.
Every human being has been created in my image to reflect all my qualities; to be joyful and to be a source of joy for everyone else, to be appreciative of the world I created and to live to praise and thank me, the God who has created everything out of love.
I gave mankind the ten commandments, which summarized in two, are simply, "Love your God above all things and love your neighbor as yourself"
The person without fear of God is so blind spiritually that He or She disregards the most sacred principles of life. Life is not of this world as the person of the world sees it, life is a sacred gift which comes from above. So when the love for money, lust, pleasure and all the things of the world fill the heart, then the soul loves them more than God, it renounces God and gives itself away to the tempter, the father of temptation and sin, the devil Himself. Sin becomes the food of the sinful soul and it gets so hungry and gluttonous, that it loses its will and becomes addicted to corruption and vice which bring eternal death.
If you are addicted to any vice, first of all, you must realize that you are offending me, then you must realize that you are not loving yourself as I have asked you, you are actually destroying yourself both physically and spiritually.
You are offending me when you place false gods in your heart. The heart is the core of your physical being, and at the same time it is the spiritual center of your soul, it is the altar where you must worship the Lord your God, the sacred place where you must come with repentance and shame to confess your guilt. But you have enthroned the filthy gods of the world of pleasure, you have invited all the demons of entertainment, lust, corruption and all types of sin into this sacred temple of life which the body is, you are profaning your bodies and my presence at the same time.
I want to help you, I never turn away from you even you offend me, I am a loving Father who is very anxious to see your return. Come back to me with repentance, renounce your sins, pray constantly and I will give you the grace to be healed completely.
You gave your will to the devil, now you must renounce Him and my grace will set you free. You have been enslaved by your own desires, and by your own sins, now you must break those chains with prayer and repentance. Do it my child, and you will live again.
Don't take my words lightly, you must do violence to yourself, otherwise you will continue as you are and forget my request.
