Romans 1:28 King James Version (KJV)

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

2 Corinthians 5:17-21

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

❤ We need God through what He sent Jesus to do for us to keep us from those things our flesh desires~He makes us NEW~giving us LIFE~desiring not to do those things we don’t want to do that we keep doing~HE BREAKS CHAINS OF ADDICTIONS! ❤

When The Good Lord…

…leads us out of a false religion~a false Gospel~an addiction~a situation~etc WE NEED TO STAY OUT! He has lovingly led us out for a reason! HE IS THAT REASON! We can handle any temptation that comes our way from the devil when we turn TO our Heavenly Father~the devil is powerless! Do not let him devour you and turn you away from what God has done for you through Jesus to over come! The devil is a liar! Do NOT believe Him!

God is our Father! Our Protector! Our Shield! Our Comforter! Our High Tower!

HE LOVES US (John 3:16-17)!  GOD IS THE PROMISER!

❤ ❤ ❤

THE NAME OF THE LORD…

Smoke Free!

ALL GLORY TO GOD THROUGH JESUS FOR BREAKING THE CHAINS OF ADDICTION!

I had been a smoker since I was 14. At the age of 45 The Good Lord broke that chain! Threw that “monkey” off my back!

I had been praying and ashamed that has a fairly new Christian I just could not let go.Even though I really did NOT like it anymore! I quit drinking almost immediately with out a problem! But, smoking…UGH!  I started praying-yes-even  while I smoked TRUSTING The Lord could and would help me!

One day I became real ill. I thought I was having a heart attack. My daughter that works in the ER at our local hospital thought I was, too. So off to the ER we went.

Before we left I smoked and proceeded to break every cigarette left that I had ( I had done that more then once before!) some how KNOWING that was it! I am done! The Good Lord is going to see me through!

I got to the ER and the staff fell in line and did what they do when they believe they are dealing with a cardiac patient. I was asked the standard medical questions, one of them being: DO YOU SMOKE? (I always dreaded that question!) ANSWER: NOT ANYMORE! ( I KNEW THAT WAS IT! GOD WAS GOING TO SEE ME THROUGH!) The nurse just raised his eyebrows and said I hope so.   After a few hours and many tests they could not find anything wrong. Now mind you I am not one to run to the ER or go to the DR anytime I have a sniffle. So I was stumped as to what just happened.

I came home at 11 that night-I fell asleep-I slept from then until 10:30 the next night! That is almost 24 hours! I could hear things going on around me but could not wake up!

When I woke up I went to the restroom and never thought about smoking (which when a smoker wakes up that is usually the first thing on their mind!).

That was my withdrawal! An almost 24 hour sleep! That was 7 years ago! That all being said I have been tempted to have one-we are not above being tempted- BUT I know if  do then I will undo what The Good Lord so graciously did for me that night! I can go to Him and thank HIM for breaking that chain for me and thank Him for keeping me from going back to it! AND ANOTHER TESTIMONY OF HIS MERCY AND LOVE AND HOW HE ANSWERS OUR DESPERATE PRAYERS! DON’T STOP PRAYING TO HIM!!What a BLESSING to be able to answer that dreaded question: DO YOU SMOKE? with a happy NO! and a GLORY TO GOD!

ALL GLORY TO GOD! ❤ ❤ ❤

P.S. That nurse that said he hoped I was done smoking asks my daughter occasionally if I have started again. She happily says NO!

“Because, I don’t want YOU to.”

Being rebel hearted, at the young age of fourteen I started smoking. I loved smoking-mostly because I should not have been doing it. That bad habit (which turned into an addiction) also, led me to steal smokes from my parents and from where ever and who ever I could steal them from.

I had gained that “I can quit when I want” mentality. Boy, was that one of the furthest things from the truth! I hit a point in my adult years that I got tired of the dirty, nasty habit. I found out I couldn’t just quit. The hardest part of quitting for me was always the withdrawals.  That is why “I” – “me” couldn’t quit.

I even continued to smoke-guilt filled-after I became saved. One day I realized that this was so against what the Lord that saved me wanted for the “temple”  He had allowed me to have.  God’s holy spirit got ahold of me! I prayed all the time -I even prayed while I was smoking. I prayed with FAITH that only He could help me with this. I KNEW-had FAITH- He could.

One day I fell ill. My daughter being an emergency room nurse took me to her hospital thinking I was having a heart attack. One of the first questions they asked me was “Do you smoke” and I told them “not anymore!”. Before I left I took those cigarettes and threw them away. I KNEW I was done.  I was just going to have to suffer those withdrawals and the Lord was just going to HAVE to see me through!

Turned out that I was not having a heart attack-I had heartburn (which can also be a health factor contributed from smoking)!

I came home and fell asleep on the couch that night at 11. I could hear things going on around me the next day but couldn’t wake up. It was like I was paralyzed. I slept until 10:30 the following night! I never slept or do sleep like that! When I finally woke up I didn’t even think about smoking!  ALL GLORY TO GOD NOT ONE WITHDRAWAL! I was 45 years old! 31 years of that addiction and the LORD CURED ME in less than 24 hours! We are never too old to have the LORD see us through and change us! NEVER!

EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE WITH GOD FOR HIS HONOR AND GLORY! I could not have done that on my own-NO WAY-I TRIED! This was one more humbling experience the Lord has allowed me. I do not find myself condemning anyone for smoking because I have been there. I know how hard of a dirty habit it is to break on one’s own! I have been allowed a “smoker’s testimony” to be shared when the opportunity arises! No CHANTIX or patches, or pills…

We must have FAITH in Jesus confessing we are a sinner that needs Him as our Saviour. When we come to Him His light shines on our darkness and starts working on those things we have been doing that go against Him! Those things that make us filthy! He cleanses us and works out the dirty  heart and our dirty habits! He is there to help us-to see us through-WHY NOT USE HIM FOR OUR BENEFIT? If we don’t use Him than what He did for us was done in vain. God is not a liar-what Jesus did was not in vain it was for the benefit of everyone! HALLELUJAH!

If you have an addiction you are struggling with-confess it to Him -and admit to Him you can not stop on your own, that you need the help of the Great Physician-Jesus! Be ready to be tempted to “go back”! The devil is a liar! he doesn’t like when we turn to the Lord! Remember that what the LORD took you out of,  He can keep you out of!  He has already won our battles for us through what He did for us on the cross! Don’t forget that! What He has in store for us is way better than any fleshly filled addiction that becomes a ball and chain in our lives! HE FREES US! Makes us a new creature just like His Word says in 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

Remember also that what the LORD has taken you out of is because He wants you out of that particular thing. He deals with us each individually through the holy spirit. I had once asked the Lord when I saw a Christian wearing a t-shirt that announced the name of their church building on it smoking. I asked the Lord why  that person could smoke and I could not? Before I could get the word “not” finished this is what I “heard”:  “Because, I don’t want YOU to” . Yes. emphasis on the “YOU”.  I took that as a you worry about “yourself”! That was enough for me 🙂

Matthew 19:26

26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God *all things are possible.

*Jesus said ALL THINGS-not SOME things
