Psalm 50:15 “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me.” (NASB)
VICTORY OVER ADDICTION, a Men’s Ministries one-week daily devotional.
Day 2, December 4, 2018I thought I had it all under control until I had another outburst! It’s Day 2 of Victory Over Addiction and today’s verse shows where we need to turn in our day of trouble. I had an anger problem. I struggled with it from my youth and tried many different techniques and strategies to rid it from my life. It wasn’t until I fell on my knees before the Lord, cried out to Him to take it away—or take my life—did I begin to understand that it wasn’t His to take but mine to take care of. The night I cried out to the Lord, I began to seek His Word and He led me to verse after verse about anger. The more I read the more I understood that the I as addicted to anger, and it was running my life! Whether it be alcohol, drugs, pornography, or wanting possessions or power, we can find help by turning to God. The best part of today’s verse is that it states God will rescue us! It’s like a safety plan in place when we need it!
