At the end of this message, we would like to pray along with you. Jesus will answer the prayers. He will break the chains of addiction that are binding everyone who is reading this. Jesus loves you.

Addiction and its sources
The first taste of addiction starts as recreation, entertainment, or to satisfy curiosity. For example, addiction to masturbation and pornography arises from the lust of the opposite sex. Gambling might start as fun and a game. Initial wins might force someone to go for further wins. But the losses might soon overcome the initial gains. Many go back to gambling again to recover the money lost. But the gambling machines are programmed in such a way the odds are always against us. Those who are addicted to gambling end up in debt.
Dear friend, if you are stuck in addiction you must find the source of addiction and deal with it immediately. Are you intending to earn more money quickly through gambling? Are you lusting the opposite sex secretly and caught in sexual addiction? Do you think you can find peace by drinking liquor and taking drugs? None of the addictions will ever give peace. The fun will soon end and the pain of addiction will soon take over. Guilty consciousness, debt, and health problems follow as the addiction continues.
God can help us to overcome. The Bible says, "Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. For your hands are stained with blood, your fingers with guilt." Yes, my friend the hand of God is powerful enough to lift us up out of the addiction. His ears have not gone dull to hear our prayers. But it is our sins that separate us from God. Jesus can help us if we can deal with the sin that separates us from God.
Leave the Past and Reconcile with Jesus
Dear Friend, God is more powerful than our addictions and bondages. He can release make us free. Bible says if the Son(Jesus) sets you free, you will be free indeed. Jesus wants to set you free today. He wants to forgive the past and release every one of us from all the addiction. He wants to wash the past mistakes with His precious blood and make us a new creation. God can give us the strength to overcome the temptations that are leading us to addiction.

Who is our enemy?
Bible says For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
The fight with addiction is never against our own flesh but it is against the rulers and the authorities of evil power which induce us to do things we don't like to do. We have to seek God to help us conquer the temptation. He will equip us with His power so that we can win the battle against the enemy. Any addiction and the associated bondage can be broken with the power of God. The blood of Jesus can release us from all the addictions. Please surrender your life to God. Let Him lead the fight and help you overcome.
We Can not Serve Two Masters
