We don’t have to look far to see that many people in the world are dealing with a variety of problems and are in need of solutions. No matter what problem you are facing — whether it is emotional, mental, psychological or spiritual — Jesus Christ holds the solution that you need. As we walk together in this podcast, we will address a number of topics that exist in the world and present solutions from the Bible that will help you heal and live life more abundantly. Our aim in this podcast is: (1) to introduce you to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, the ultimate source of all healing; (2) to provide you with information that will help you to understand the problem; and (3) to help you by providing solutions to your problems.

Our passage from the Word of God today is Deuteronomy 31:6. It reads, “Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

Our quote for today is from Stanley Tam. He said, “Assurance is in God’s word, not in our hopes and feelings. This is the whole purpose of the Bible – to state God’s conditions and provisions, not only for the beginning of the life in Christ but also for the continuity of this life.”

Our problem today is “The Problem of Addictions in Your Life” (part 3) from the book, “The Guide to Biblical Counseling” by Dr. Tim Clinton and Dr. Ron Hawkins.

Today, we want to discuss some Wise Counsel and Action Steps you can take to overcome addiction.

“Safety is always the key issue. Other family members, who are old enough to understand, should know how to handle your behaviors, in particular driving under the influence. Family members must be taught to say no to rides with you or to call for help if you are unable to supervise younger children. If physical or sexual abuse occurs when you are under the influence, family members are encouraged to leave the home immediately, go to a relative’s home or a shelter for victims of domestic violence and report the behavior to appropriate authorities. If verbal abuse is an issue when you are under the influence, family members are encouraged to seek counseling, especially counseling or group sessions for family members of addicts.”

Dear friend, if you do not believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, may I encourage you to get to know Him today. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live forever with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will. Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
