Addiction’s well hidden “cause”

The “cause” can be well hidden!

Addiction is a manifestation of something going on much deeper within, an expression of a problem that becomes an additional part of the problem, taking on a life of its own, when the initial problem is not properly dealt with.

Addiction knows no bounds.  It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, employed or jobless, a pastor or prisoner, homeowner or homeless, he’ll take whoever he can get.  The real culprit has everyone playing the “blame game” while he lurks in the shadows preying on God’s creation.

Everyone involved (the addict, family members, employer, etc.) are literal victims in this battle, whether they realize it or not, and are all part of the enemy’s agenda.  Hope appears only when we’re able to see the problem for what it really is and begin to understand there is a solution.

Brokenness is fertile ground for an addiction to thrive, comes in various forms, always has a cause, and manifests in a variety of unpredictable ways. One thing is consistent, the instigator, the underlying culprit is always the same.  He comes to steal, kill and destroy lives. Unfortunately, he works through people, places and things as he influences all sorts of ungodly behavior, and in most cases, remains hidden.

Spiritual battles are never won with physical weapons alone. Humans are three-part beings consisting of a body, a soul (life within) and a spirit. Since all three are part of, all are involved, all are affected, and all three areas require proper attention if wholeness in healing is expected.
