I was recently asked to pray for a young man who was on drugs. The only real way to overcome such an addiction is through Jesus Christ. People on drugs or alcohol are burdened and bound. The addition is of Satan who seeks to kill and destroy.

John 10:10
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Satan uses this to destroy not only the body but to destroy the mind. It isolates and divides families. This battle of addiction is not a fight against man but it is a spiritual fight.

Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The addict is so burdened with trying to satisfy the desire of getting the next fix that it occupies his/her mind totally. Isaiah tells us about the only person who can break the yoke and lift the burden.

Isaiah 10:27
And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

Jesus told us that He would not leave us comfortless but that He would send His spirit (the anointing).

If you are struggling, fighting against the demon of addition, give your heart to Jesus and seek the anointing of the Holy Spirit. This gift of the Spirit is for all. The Spirit will give you power, He will teach you and guide you. You can be sealed by God.

II Corinthians 2: 20 -21
Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;
Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

Acts 2: 38 - 39
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

There is hope in God. The anointing of His Spirit can break the chains that have you bound. Just turn your life over to Him and seek to be filled with His Spirit.

Thanks for reading,
