“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
It is unlikely that you have felt at peace recently. If you are addicted to alcohol or drugs your life is in chaos.
The suffering, the loneliness – these are all because you have focused on your flesh, changing how you feel with drugs and alcohol. When you focus on the Spirit and grow closer to God the loneliness slips away.
“For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” Galatians 6:8
We know this will not be easy. You have likely become so physically dependent that you will need to be medically detoxed from drugs. You will not feel right for weeks or maybe months as your body cleanses itself of the toxins and poisons you taken over and over for years. That’s where drug rehab treatment can help.
You will not be alone. Not only will you have the counselors, nurses, therapists, and fellow travelers at your side, you will have a new-found connection with God. You will feel frightened at first, but then that fear will slowly give way to elation. The joy survivors of addiction feel is hard to describe. Many will say they feel truly alive for the first time in decades.
There is peace.
“Now acquaint yourself with Him, and be at peace; Thereby good will come to you.” Job 22:21
