 FACTS ABOUT ADDICTION

  1. Temporal Relief from pain, depression; it helps people to cut off some painful and emotional  feelings for a while.
  2. They are strongly influenced and controlled by a destructive thought process. It seduces, condemns and then destroys you

Addiction takes your focus away from God and put it over what your flesh desires. Addiction is both seducer/encourager and a punisher/destroyer. It is a cruel enemy of every child of God.

God has the power to set you free from whatsoever thing you are addicted to.

The devil instigates a form of addiction to every man destined for greatness; this can be seen in the life of King David who was addicted to women.

You can be born again and still be under the bondage of addiction, all you need do is to walk away from them. Every addiction is a killer of destiny.
