So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again.” (Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭1‬ NLT)

According to Promises.com, many people who try to recover from addiction to alcohol or drugs unfortunately do not stay in recovery. Although relapse may be common, rarely does it occur without warning. There are usually significant behaviors that can signal that the recovering person is at high risk for relapse. It is critical for anyone in recovery to understand these warning signs.

As our text suggests, God helps us to find freedom from our selfish, addictive, and destructive vices. But just as God seeks to deliver, Satan would like nothing more than to see you fail. We must see our struggles as more than chemical or trained, they are deeply spiritual and must find its conquering through spiritual means. That’s why programs like Celebrate Recovery and a local church are so essential in finding a community to help achieve and maintain freedom.

Are you needing freedom? Are you in danger of relapsing? Have you already slid back into your old destructive ways? Do whatever it takes to be clean again and then stay clean! Find a spiritual community that will get you back to higher grounds! You are loved today!

But I am poor and needy; Yet the LORD thinks upon me.” (Psalms 40:17 NKJV)

Daniel Chong was a student at the University of California in San Diego when he visited a friend’s house in 2012. The house was raided that day by the DEA in a drug sting. While being held in an isolated cell during the investigation, Chong was forgotten and left unattended without food, water, or hygiene for 5 days before being found, seriously dehydrated and ready to die. Needless to say, somebody got in trouble!

When we are in the midst of heavy trials, perhaps even isolated from the comfort of others, our soul naturally gravitates to God for help. We fear being alone, afraid that God would forget us, leaving us alone to die, like Chong. Yet the Bible says that He never forgets us, but is always thinking of our well-being!

As you start your weekend, don’t let your fears overwhelm you. You are never alone no matter how you feel. Be confident in that! Let your issues draw you in hope to God! You are loved and highly thought of today!
