alcohol and drug use

All You Have to Do Is Believe in Him

You have faced the reality that you can’t control your alcohol and drug use. This might seem like a hopeless situation because you have gotten used to living a stressful and sinful life alone. Relying on something or someone to get back on track might seem difficult, especially if you have walked away from God. But when you seek Him out, you find that you are not alone.

Taking the Second Step Toward God

In the second step, you realize a higher power can get you through the chaos and sin. That higher power is God and He is listening. Psalm 18:6 states “In my distress I called upon the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From His temple he heard my voice and my cry came before Him into His ears.” When you seek God for help, you’ll find that He is there for you and His love for His children is infinite.
After straying from God, you might not be confident that your life will ever be manageable. However, Psalm 23:1-3 tells us, “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet water, He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for His name’s sake.” God restores sanity in your life when you let Him.

With God, All Is Possible

When you first step away from the sinful world of alcohol and drugs, life is overwhelming and the thought of happiness seems impossible. Remember that with God, all is possible. Once you come back to God, His love will restore your faith and life begins again.
