Ok! Where do we start? I have to inform you, that in your lifespan there shall be troubled times of distress, pain, and even trauma which will create a sense of desperation to get a fix.
Some choose to deal with their pain with drugs whether it be prescribed or hardcore street drugs.
We strive towards a perfectly happy world, however, neither the less I wish to inform you. This is a world as we know it to this point renders only hardship, sorrow and more evidently pain unspeakable.
Whether you pop Grandpa’s to treat your pain, or even prescribed drugs, or the extreme, taking up hard drugs to alleviate the pain that is so undeniably real in every way and escaping this reality most people resort to alternatives.
Some stop serving the Lord Jesus Christ. They sincerely believe that our sworn enemy Satan will leave them at peace should they reject their deepest found belief in the Lord Jesus Christ. We don’t deal or negotiate with the devil. Why? Cause he always cheats!!!
Escaping the reality of your pain, and I don’t raise this topic light-heartedly but do you the favor. Go to the nearest mall in your vicinity and observe peoples expression on their faces, cause the face never lies.
Yes! You were brought into this world as a babe. However, you were born according to the sinful nature and brought into existence in a fallen state. What are you trying to say, Jaco? You may ask. Simply this: “You don’t know any better” than the life you now currently live.
It is going to take a sincere leap of Faith to move from an obscure world into the life of abundance as promised by our Lord Jesus the Christ.
And so it is. Escapism is real and will render you in a place unlikely en-devour or aspired to. There does not exist a quick fix in this World, save by the comforter. See! Now we have established the problem, we live in a distorted and fallen world, this is a problem.
Here is the Fix: In my favorite book, the Gospel according to John. It is said by the Lord Jesus: “I will not leave you comfortless or in distress, but I will pray the Father and HE will send you Another Comforter, the Holy Spirit.
He is so Gentle and Kind, and will never force Himself on to you. Be extremely sensitized when it comes to these matters, seen that they present truth, now the truth can either set you free or very much so bind you should you to shun away from the God-inspired Word.
And if you don’t have a Bible then I will donate one to you free of charge should you reside in South Africa. The Holy Spirit Inspired Word of the Living God holds the power to set you free or as before bind you, should you repel the message it gives.
A good illustration would be the following. A baby being nurtured and fed with a teaspoon. The mommy will NOT force feed the child. In the same light, practice the Word inside of you. I can promise God will entrust you with more revelation as you pursue a life totally surrendered unto Him, your utmost for His Highest…
