Can you believe in God and be addicted to drugs?
If you’re currently addicted to drugs, don’t believe the lie that spirituality has no place in your life.
This is the best time for you to call unto the Lord and he will come and answer you.
That’s what scripture says, “Call unto me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things.”
We know Jesus, when He was speaking, He said that He didn’t come for those that were well, Jesus came for those that were sick
Addiction Does Not Discriminate
If you’re addicted to drugs, you are sick and you need healing.
That is exactly what Jesus came to do.
So today we want to encourage you and let you know that yes, you can believe in God and be addicted to drugs.
Drugs and addiction does not discriminate.
You have doctors, you have lawyers, you have business people, you have business owners, government leaders,
All of these people are just as vulnerable as someone who’s poor or maybe uneducated.
So we don’t want to put a stigma on a particular class of people that say that they are addicted to drugs.
No, addiction does not discriminate.
When your Life Starts to Spiral out of Control
One of the saddest consequences that I find with addiction is that it makes the individuals isolate themselves.
Usually, when you’re using, you don’t want to be around people.
Not only do you isolate yourself,
you lose interest in the things that you’d like to do.
You lose interest in your hobbies
If you were someone that went to church, you may stop going to church.
You may stop reading the word
You may stop doing whatever things that you were interested in before you started using the drug.
But what we don’t want you to do is to isolate yourself
or start beating yourself up because of your drug use.
One of the things that drugs do to the body is build a tolerance.
Once your body builds a tolerance to the drug,
It takes more of that drug for you to reach the height that you’re trying to get.
Not only a higher dosage, but it takes a more frequent use.
When you couple a higher dosage and more frequent use, your life starts spiraling out of control.
When you see your life spiraling out of control, that’s when things start to happen.
That’s when you start making bad choices in your life.
How To Get Help
I want you to know that there is a savior, there is a savior named Jesus and He came to save you.
Not only Jesus,
There are groups,
There are rehab facilities,
There are support groups,
There’s Burning Love Outreach and we are here to help you to get back on the right track, to get your life back.
We don’t want you to feel like you’re not worthy because you are worthy.
God doesn’t want to punish you,
He doesn’t want you to beat yourself up,
God wants you to call out to Him so he can come and rescue you.
When you call out to the Lord, He will send people to you.
He will send help to you so that you can get back on the right track and start living a productive life.
Jesus tells us to love ourselves.
In order for you to love yourself,
You have to be pleased with your actions.
You have to be pleased with the things that you’re doing
Hopefully that you will reach out and that you would get the support that you need.
A strong support group is very important for someone willing to give up their drug addiction and get help for themselves.
You need a strong support system, it’s very difficult to do this by yourself.
So I want you to know that Burning Love Outreach we are here to help you

To motivate you and hopefully, you will be willing to seek out help and get a sponsor so that you can start living a productive life.

Just like you want to be free from your addiction
Your loved ones want you to be free from your addiction.
