Colossians 1:13 says “For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.” You may have been an addict, but you are now transferred into Jesus’ kingdom. You don’t have to live in that old world, anymore. You are a child of God, an an OVERCOMER. (1John 5:5)
Have you ever said something so many times, you started to believe it? Or actually brought that thing to pass? We do it all the time because it is a spiritual principle.
Proverbs 18:21 says “Death and life are in the power of the tongue. And those who love it will eat its fruit.” In other words, what you say decides what you will “eat” or have. Stop saying you are an addict. You can say “I was an addict but now I am an overcomer.” Changing your words, changes your mind. Changing your mind, changes your actions. Changing your actions changes your life. Focus on God’s truth and you will live in His truth: you have been delivered from addiction and have overcome it. Be free, my friend! Be free!
