The essence of Grace in overcoming addiction

Addiction is a compulsive brain disorder that is challenging to overcome. Usually, it starts as abuse before it develops into an addiction. Broadly speaking, there are two addiction types, substance and behavioral addiction.

Someone who is addicted would at various point want to conquer their addiction, but the pleasure derived from it is greater. Hence, they would continue to dwell in their addiction hoping that one day, they would get better.

The truth is, some people might never get the chance to recover from addiction, but if you are in Christ, you will definitely get better.

The sad part is, several believers do not know their identity in Christ and they don’t know how Grace helps them to overcome challenging areas in their life like addiction.

It is important to mention that God’s grace is sufficient for everyone, and if you are battling any area of your life, you need his Grace to pull through.

One of the things Grace does to you is helping you with your fellowship with God. Undeniably, addiction is a sin that tends to strain your relationship with God.

However, if you come to acknowledge God as your source and help, he impacts Grace that would help you survive addiction.

Addiction is not something that drops off immediately. It is as result of deliberate act and prayers. More so, going to a rehab would come in handy because physical treatment is needed. You need to know the root cause of your addiction and this is what the rehab helps you know.

Hence, as you receive treatment in the rehab, you rely on God’s grace to help you pull through. Addiction treatment could have a mental toll on your health particularly because you will be lonely. No one would want to associate with you.

With God’s grace, you will be able to pull through addiction in good health, and you will have a better outlook at life. Also, you will be able to plan your life well, in line with God’s words.
