1 John 4:18
18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
The root of all forms of addiction is lie. There is no addiction without a lie supporting it. The bible calls the devil the father of all lies. This is because his main strategy in pulling down his victims is by telling them a lie. In the Garden of Eden, Eve was decieved by the Devils lie. Today, the devil uses that same strategy in getting several believers into addictions. You may not recognize the lie but it exists. A major product of lie is fear which leads to addiction and a loop of continious falling away. No wonder the bible says perfect love drives out fear. Jesus has revealed to us the perfect love of God. John 3:16 tells us for God so loved the WORLD. His love for the WORLD (all of us) is perfect and is able to drive out the fears the lies of the devil has introduced into your life.
Dear friend, if you believe in God, believe also in His love, believe in His promises of never leaving you. In that addiction, always know that the Lord loves you, reject the devils lies of you being weak, reject his lie of telling yourself “that is how i was formed”. The bible says by strenght shall no man previal. The word of God is your power over addictions and His word says: you are wonderfully and fearfully made, you have been designed to give God glory, you are Loved always!
Keep declaring Gods love over your life even when you fall into that addiction and relly on Him with a sincere and willing heart to pull you out of it.
God bless you as you allow Gods love deliever you from addictions.
