Isaiah 44:21
“Remember these things, Jacob,
for you, Israel, are my servant.
I have made you, you are my servant;
Israel, I will not forget you.”

We are all addicted to something
Trade it to something better
Trade in your vice so you can have a better life

God wants you back
Your sin does not own you. God owns you

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

Genesis 25:29-32
Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!”
Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.”
“Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?”

All addiction will lie to you
Addiction will tell you, if you don’t act upon what you are
addicted on, you will die

Your cravings will die — not you — if you do not feed your cravings

Our problem is our lack of patience
Delay gratification

Focus on another pleasure

You cannot get rid your addiction
But you can trade it with another

Don’t focus on addiction
Focus on ambition

Hebrews 12:4
In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.

Often times we don’t fight temptation because we have no reason to fight
You will only fight temptation to the degree that you love yourself

Self rejection opens you to temptation

John 4:7
When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?”

John 4:11,13-14
“Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water?

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

Our soul is thirsty for love
All addictions are pain killers

The reason why we have addiction is the lack of connection
The only way for you to be free of you addiction is the eternal love of God
