"Stronghold of Drug Addiction"

Freedom Through Jesus

I had been afflicted and tormented by the stronghold of extreme drug addiction for many years. I had been living as a prisoner inside my mind for so long that no matter HOW many rehabs I attended or HOW long I stayed “dry,” the “stronghold” was still there. 

I have heard the word, “stronghold,” for ages, but never really knew the meaning until recently, when God revealed it to me. A stronghold is formed when an individual has agreed with a “vain imagination” long enough for the “vain imagination” to become an “absolute truth” to the person. 

This is true even for people who are not yet aware that it applies to them. When it becomes a stronghold, it starts to take deep root in our minds. Example: “I can’t get up without this, I can’t function without this, and I HAVE to have it to make it through the day, I’ll never be happy without this,” and the list goes on. 

The devil is a LIAR, and there is NO truth in him!!  He is a deceiver.  He’ll have you thinking you are going north when you are going south.  He’ll have you thinking you are going east when you are going west. 

Well…  I eventually sunk to a new level of low, even for me. So I made a passionate and desperate plea to God in the privacy of my room. I told Him that if I had to get THAT low, to get THAT much lower, then I was exiting stage left. 

I couldn’t take living that way any longer. I said, " There is NO rehab strong enough for me, there is NO rehab long enough, and I am NOT willing to go back." 

Right then, I took a giant leap of faith and cried out to the Lord and said with urgency; You say Your Word cannot lie. You died for these things years ago, and that all I should have to do is to tell You that I don’t want it, and it should be gone in yesterday time!  So guess what?!  I DON’T WANT IT!!! 

I lifted it up to Him in the spirit and ALLOWED Him to take it. I knew that very moment the stronghold had been removed from me!  What a liberating experience!!  He lifted the “stronghold of drug addiction” and freed my mind.  He broke the chains that had held me captive for so long!!! 

PRAISE THE LORD!!  I AM FREE TODAY!!  And you know what?  I LOVE being free!!!  That is what my SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST did for me!!  And He CAN and WILL do it for YOU if you will ALLOW him to…JESUS is the ONLY one strong enough!!
