Well I have had a busy week.
For Two days this week... I was blessed to help out a lady and two children who fled from an Alcholic Partner. The lady was very terrified however God is faithful. He helped Her see that this type of relationship is not what He intended for her life.
When you are in an abusive relationship there is a pattern that follows.. You find yourself Helpless, Isolated, You find that People are frustrated with you as they have given so much time and effort to you in the past and dont want to get involved. This is probably because you have gone back to that relationship over and over after help. You do this due to lies from your partner. Your partner the real one ( when sober ) May actually mean it however alcholism takes over. You find yourself helpless, broken, no strength, lost.
Unfortunately Alcholism is a sickness and needs treating properly.
No matter how much you think you can change the person or if you give them enough love... they wont change.
They need help and Jesus Christ is the Answer. Help from services such as AA can help also a combination of the two is good.( you will find that AA uses the bible to guide people)!
Unless the person is willing to get help you cant do very much. Instead you will find that there is constant Chaos, Fear, Abuse, Pain, things lost and constantly broken in your life/ home. You will be warn down to the point of desperation and losing all.
Desperation fear pain....This is not what God intends for anyone to live like...
Genesis 1:28 God blessed Adam and Eve and said to them
" Be fruitful and multiply." (Fruitful) means in every area of your life, Full of Joy, Peace, Success and the one that covers them all LOVE.
This is how God intended ALL mankind to live.
God is a Good God anything Good comes from him.. anything bad from satan.
The fruits of Gods Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control;
Nothing that is bad can come from God for he is Love. so its that simple really to work out that when you go through awful things they are not of God or what God wants. Great News is that God has already given us the answers in How to be free of such terrible things and to live and experience the things He has for you instead!!!!
" Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. For My yoke ( His way and life) is easy, my burden is light".
You know from that scripture that suffering you are going through either being an alcoholic or from someone who is.. its is not from God.
You also know from this scripture that if you turn away from the addiction and go to Christ He says his way is easy. Or Call to Jesus for help with the situation where alchoholism is present in your life.
The lady saw that through Gods help she could be free from deceit, fear, substance abuse and its backlash.
The way to strength is through Jesus Christ. He gives you His abilities, His powerful words to speak and empower you.
You are dealing with a person who is addicted to alchohol.. there is a reason behind that. Anyone who is drinking to that caliber is masking something. Its easier to be in that world of drunkness than to face reality.... This is so far from the truth.... Jesus knows the reason and the Holy Spirit will guide and comfort you.
" I will pray to the Father and He will send you another comforter, that He may be with you till the end".
He Comforts, Guides, counsels helps Intercesses for you on your behalf.
Its Gods free gift...
We are given this gift of The Holy Spirit when we are saved.. that same Holy Spirit who works on your behalf for you before you get saved also. Who else do you think has got you to this page? Co incidence? Chance? No.. The Holy Spirit.
"In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express."
The spirit helps us in our weakness..
Satan would have you believe that its not a problem, that its better to be like this.. this is a lie.
God deals with your pain or problem for you if you put your trust in Him and turn away from the addiction. Or the circumstance you are in.
In his Strength you can do this..
Philipians 4:13 says
" I can do all things by Chirst Jesus who strengthens me"
Speak that SCRIPTURE out aloud.
He empowers you to be able to do this and cope with all of lifes circumstances.
Its purely supernateral. Our One and ONLY GOD is supernateral!
You dont even know that your issues ( Scars ) are being dealt with. God/Jesus is so gentle that He deals with them without you even knowing about it most of the time. Its strengthens you beyond measure and you are free from Bondage. ( Drink) a substance that actally controls you. If it didnt control you and make you unsafe the law would let you drive right? You cant drive because you are not safe to.. Thats the power of alchohol and its affects.
Its changes who you are and takes over you to become something you naterally arent.
"For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace."
Drinking to that excess is setting your mind on the flesh. This is death.. But to set your mind on what God says ( the spirit ) is life and peace.
Jesus Christ said
John 8: 32 " You shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set you free"
Jesus's word in the bible is truth. It explains how to bring yourself back from the pit of corruption, confusion, fear and death.
Thankfully.. This lady was shown the truth and that coupled with her own inner morals.. She knew that this is not the way she would like her children to be brought up or be subject to. Also that She herself deserves peace and happiness and until that person is willing to get help she can do no more. She has left things for Jesus to deal with and Prayer is a POWERFUL tool for anyone who loves someone who is subject to this addiction.
God is waiting for you to ask for help... Call out to Jesus ask him to help you if you are subject to alcholism in any way.
In fact any circumstance be it sickness, abuse of any kind, pain or anything that is wrong !!!! No matter what state you are in or what you have done.
God is faithful to answer. He will always answer and help. He wil never Hurt you,
He will never turn His back on you. He is not going to leave you in a mess or be like well you got yourself in this you get out... God doesnt even remember anything you have done for His own sake once you have asked for forgiveness... no problem is too big for Him. He is the Almighty God and Loves you. We are all born into the SIN nature. Adam and eve made that possible read Genesis 3.... Scipture says " all have come short of the glory of God." Thats why Jesus was sent back. To bring back man to God.. we were seperated from God through Sin in the beginning,
Sin is satans nature. Not Gods.
" For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son ( Jesus) so that whosoever believes on Him shall not perish but have everlasting life"
He cant do anything unless you ask Him for help. soon as you do.. He is doing much behind the scenes to help you see the truth and get you to the right people.
"And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it"
"The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, 'Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.'"
Hold out in faith and God is faithful to His promises. There are so many in His word all wonderful all meant for you. Find out what they are! His Bible shows them all Thousands of them!
Are You ready for the Truth?
God Bless you In Jesus Christ Holy Name
