Overcoming Addiction is Possible in Christ

Fernando Patulot has been addicted to drugs for 25 years.

His addiction caused big conflicts in their family. To sustain their everyday needs, his wife resorted to gambling which buried them deeper into debt.

“I was so hooked on drugs that I did not care about my family anymore,” Fernando recalled.

This addiction brought Fernando and his family to a place of utter mess. Everything was falling apart. His children were harboring hatred towards him and as if that’s not enough, his wife tried taking her own life.

More than anyone, Fernando’s wife was affected the most and everything became too much for her to bear.

Are you also a captive of addiction?

Is your family falling apart?

Always remember that God is your living Hope. You can go to Him and ask help for any hopeless situation.

Although Fernando and his wife had a serious conversation about his vices, it still wasn’t enough to convince him to stop his addiction. Until one night, Fernando chanced upon The 700 Club Asia.

He was moved by the story of the testimony giver who was also addicted to drugs but came to know Christ and had his whole life transformed.

Fernando prayed with the host wholeheartedly and accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

“Lord, please forgive me. Make my paths straight. Teach me what to do,” he prayed.

Fernando started going to church. Slowly, God was able to free him from his addiction. Soon after, through their small business, they were able to pay off their debts.

A lot of people thought it was impossible for Fernando to change. Even his own family lost hope.

But his story is a reminder that when you allow God in your life, transformation can happen. The Lord is in the business of changing lives, and He will change your life if you let Him.
