God's Promises


Addiction

"Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive form the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace."
Romans 6:11-14

"Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much."
James 5:16

"It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery."
Galatians 5:1

"But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please."
Galatians 5:16-17

"Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit."
Galatians 5:24-25

"For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death."
Romans 8:2

"For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. However you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you."
Romans 8:5-9

"Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God."
Colossians 3:1-3

"Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever."
1 John 2:15-17

"For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God."
1 John 5:4-5

"You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world."
1 John 4:4

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:6-7

"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute , if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you."
Philippians 4:8-9

"I can do all things through Him who strengthens me."
Philippians 4:13

"Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you."
James 4:7

    Thank you Dr. Stanley for being a great man of God. Who loves the Lord and His people.. When I first came to Christ, (Born Again). You and the Ministry helped me to grow in God's grace, knowledge, and wisdom, through the preached Word of God; and the magazine I once received many years ago. God has now entrusted me with a women's ministry for 6 years and the privilege to speak His Word to encourage others to seek His face, and believe in Him. He is the way the truth and the life... Thank you for being consistent and faithful unto God! Love and peace. Sis. Phyllis Jackson

    I once was addicted to drugs and alcohol! Only through the grace of God have I made it thus far! On March 20th I celebrated being clean for one year...All I have is today, and I am very grateful for the scriptures. I thank God for sending his son Jesus to set the captives free!!! There was so much despair, darkness,fear, pain, pride, abuse in every form, and so much more taking place within me! God saw fit for me to be set free and delivered......And I will be eternally grateful for what He is doing for me.
    May God continue to bless this ministry

    The addiction to smoking has really caused a "hole" in my testimony. I don't smoke around anyone (a closet smoker) because I feel that I would be a stumbling block to someone. The addiction is REAL - I keep praying for a release to this bondage but a few hours later I find that the cravings overrule my conviction. Please pray for me - I want to be FREE!!

    I'm Thankful for In-Touch in my life, it has helped me over the years and as I discover In-Touch Online I discover a new way of reaching out to God when I need him, at times when I may not be able to get to my paper magazine!! I'm also thankful for this word on Addiction, even though I've NEVER embraced the word Addict cause God can deliver us from usining any substance, I still repect the process of help through Christ to not be a user of anytime of substance.

    Request prayer for an addiction to nicotine. I quit about three years ago but have ,once again, began to smoke. I NEED the power of the Holy Spirit in my life to overcome. I've asked the Lord to take the desire away but so far I've failed. I ask that you would agree with me in prayer to win this battle. Thank-you and may God continue to bless "In Touch".

    All things work for the good of those who love God... When we have been in the bondage of addiction and we share our experience, strenth and hope with another.. our addiction then works for the good to help another see the light!!!!!!

    If it were only as easy as rememberng scripture. When you're in the grips of ptsd. I can't remember anything only fear. Sometiems scripture is just used to make those already suffering feel even more guilty.
