Living a Godly life after addiction recovery

Addiction is one of the toughest life battle that an individual can face. Due to the fact that it is an obsessive and compulsive disorder, it has a way of keeping the individual in bondage. An addicted individual usually finds it difficult to remain close to God because of the feeling of guilt.

If such person can recover successfully from addiction, there is an important need to draw closer to God and remain in tune with them than ever before.  

Below are tips on how to live a Godly life after addiction recovery

  • Improve your prayer life: One of the best ways to draw closer to God is by improving on your prayer life. Prayer is the basic way to communicate with God. Even though he is all-knowing, he craves that we communicate with him like a son does to a father.

When you step up your prayer life, the Godly character begins to reflect in your life and dealings with people around you.

  • Studying the word: The word of God is the Bible and it is one of the quintessential elements for living a Godly life. Reading and studying the word of God helps you know more about God. In reality, it is difficult to know more about someone that you did not read about.

When you study more of God’s word, your dealings with men begin to change and you start to manifest the Godly character that would make God proud.

  • Preach the word: One of the best ways to step up your relationship with God is to tell others about him. You will be doing them a favor by telling them how amazing and surreal God’s love is. With this, you are fulfilling God’s mandate and your Godly character is built up.
  • Spend more time with Believers: Hanging out more with Believers simply suggest that you should spend more time with people who are Godly. It does not however understate the importance of spending time with other people. However, it should be known that the people you move with more, determines how your Christian experience would be.  

How the love of God helps you to defeat addiction

People who are addicted have the belief that God does not care about them. They believe that their addiction lifestyle has taken them far away from God, and he does not love them anymore.

The truth is, even though they have strayed from God, he would never stop loving them because it’s his nature.

It would interest you to know that God is interested in everyone being saved. And he is waiting patiently for people to retrace their steps to him.

Due to the obsessive and compulsive nature of addiction, the addicted individual is forced to believe that he is no longer under the coverage of God.

The love of God is what addicted individuals need to defeat addiction once and for all. The love of God is so powerful because it births unimaginable results that you would not expect. When you enter in for addiction, the extra advantage you have is the love of God which reigns supreme.

Believers who smoothly pull through their addiction treatment find it easy to do so because they have acknowledged God’s love. One of the primary reasons why God’s love is quintessential in addiction treatment is because it is difficult to achieve sobriety on your own.

You might have the support of your loved ones, therapists and counselors, you still need the love of God to crown your treatment and ensure it’s successful. God’s love is the purest form of love, and this love is devoid of any form of prejudice or stigmatization.

After addiction treatment, you still need God’s love to remain sober. Based on statistics, some people are likely to relapse after completing addiction treatment because there was no aftercare treatment.

However, coupled with the love of God which births power, you will be able to defeat addiction and remain sober. In addition, it becomes easy for you to live a healthy life because of the light and guidance that God’s love provides.

Acknowledging God’s love makes you stand out and God brings the right people your way, who will care for you and help you find you find your footing.
