    Dear Gabe,

    I will pray. God has blessed you with freedom to make choices and take action and I also challenge you to take action towards improving this area of your life. So, instead of just asking God to take care of this for you, it's both praying and you doing your part. This is a good verse to repeat regularly: Philippians 4:13

    We don't know each other, but I already detected a word you said had a negative slant to it and I don't believe is true. You wrote that you "can't" leave your home. But you can. Sometimes negative thoughts need to be challenged. If what is said is true, then surely it can withstand a few questions, right? Often we entrap ourselves in our own mental prison, because of our own negative thinking. So, instead of assuming you can't do things, assume you can. Instead of looking at glass half empty, look at it half full. Instead of looking at your life as what you don't have or can't do. Thank God and be greatful for all you have and all you CAN do. Keep repeating Philippians 4:13. That verse says you CAN not a can't. Who do you believe more, God, or that thought that said you can't? Where does the can't thought come from? Your parents, relative, spouse, you as a child, a boss, satan? Is it true only for you or for everyone else? Is it true 100% of the time, only part of the time, or none of the time? What if it wasn't true?

    I'm not sure if you realize this, but many people used to have paralyzing anxieties and no longer do. If millions of people could learn to manage and improve in this area, don't you think there's a high % probability you can too? I'm sure you're aware of all the resources God has already blessed us with to help, like books and counseling with ideas. The #1 thing to reduce anxiety is exposure to the thing that triggers the anxiety, in tiny little increments. Open door, close it, open door take one step, go back, etc. Each day expanding, and using positive reinforcement. Then challenging our assumptions and negative thoughts. God bless..

    Kratom has many uses, such as treating wounds, but as with a lot of things can also be abused or used in the wrong manner. Using a plant that God created for medicinal purposes is one thing. Using that plant to obtain a "high" or the opioid effect is another. There are serious side effects that come with high doses of kratom and especially with long term use. Dependency or addiction may be hard to overcome. The best thing you can do is stop as soon as possible. Change your lifestyle. If you are born again you are repenting of your sins and stumbling blocks. Time to overcome. The feeling of God's presence in your life feels far greater than any high that can be purchased. You can do this!

    Cigarettes, will kill you. Point blank. Use patches to ween your body from the nicotine addiction. Chew gum or use suckers.

    "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

    Pray for the strength to quit and for the strength to overcome the urge or temptation to use again.

    Anytime you feel the urge open your Bible or pray.

    You have the will power.

    Nicholas L Langas,

    "felt gods love and power In my life"

    As with so many today there is a great attachment to feelings, however, God's love goes well beyond emotion and is a commitment to you. Your commitment to him is a return to him of some of that love. You understand our love for him pales in comparison to his love for us, nevertheless, returning love pleases him in a way that is unique to each person that is in that relationship with him.

    I quit smoking years before becoming saved, and was truely shocked at my first attempt when I had the physical cravings filling my thoughts constantly. I was committed to quitting and indeed over time the cravings were much more manageable, till some time later, that habit died. As a newborn Christian you have need to feed that new person and there is nothing better than God's word. Spend time with God in prayer/discussion and your relationship will grow. A plan for your life is quite simple, feed the new person you've become in Christ and starve the old person of things that draw you away from God. I have learned and you will also, that it is indeed true that " Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." 1Corinthians 2:9, an abundant life, and "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." Psalms 16:11. I hope/expect your desire to get closer to God will extend/last unto evermore, as will happen with all believers.

    Many blessings and prayers,

    Hello, these verses comes to mind when I hear your story, I hope it helps you.

    Ephesians 5.

    15.See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

    16.Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

    17.Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

    18.And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

    19.Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20.Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

    21.Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

    You're not doing anything wrong. If you believe Jesus was the son of God and have sincerely asked God to forgive your sins you have already been born again. If you're interested in understanding the Bible better, I recommend looking into Shepherd's Chapel Bible study videos. They explain the Bible in detail verse by verse with context and cross-reference to other relevant verses.

    I am growing in Christ. A sister is counseling me. I am receiving Bible study on a weekly basis along with Sunday service now. Thank God! I no longer run the street!
  • Racquel - in Reply on 1 Peter 5
    Thank God for growth. I am listening more and more to Jesus put people in front of me to heal my body. Hopefully I continue. Thank you for your prayers and happiness. I thank God for strength and being able to sing to him.

  • Salvation of Family Members - in Reply on 1 Peter 5
    Matthew Chapter 18

    18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

    19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

    20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

    I agree with you that the Holy Spirit would go forward and open the eyes of the spiritually blind and deaf: to hear and understand the Gospel of Christ. I agree with this brother, that on cords of love the Holy Spirit would draw these family members to Jesus for salvation and forgiveness of sins. Love covers a multitude of sins: May love and forgiveness seal their salvation and shelter the new birth from all persecution.

    I pray for nothing less than what You, Jesus, did for me. May Your Holy Spirit undertake in their new birth and sink their roots deeply in the Life of Jesus.

    Together, we ask this in Jesus Name and believe we have what we have prayed for.

    We praise Your Holy Name.

    Dear Lord, I give you my entire heart, soul and being. All of the training, studying and skills are yours. Each work that I do and the money I earn is done in your honor. I lay all of my hopes and aspirations at your feet. I pray that you will bless my work and find favor in all that I do. When I meet new challenges in my work, I pray that you will help me to overcome them and excel in my job. Please guide me throughout the day so that I may walk in your path in all that I do.

    May all my joys be multiplied through the hope and love of Jesus Christ. Because I believe in you, Lord, I know that nothing is impossible for me. Through you, I can do all things. I pray that you will Give Favor in what I do. When I make a mistake or stumble, give me the wisdom and guidance I need to do the right thing. May your love reign supreme in my life and may I always work toward a better knowledge of you. Amen.

    Jesus I agree with this your child that you will strengthen and enable her to refuse the traps of the devil. Keep her and her child safe while You bring her to a man of God, according to 1 Corinthians 7; to shelter, protect and guide in partnership. Help her to depend on You until that time. Song of Solomon 2:16. You depend on Jesus to help you with those things you need help with. Put your precious faith in Him.

    Alex on Isaiah 65 ,The new heaven and the new earth which is the H.G. our new Innerman ,That heavenly Jerusalem ,mount ZION WHICH IS SPIRIT . You are come unto mount Zion the city of the living God that Heavenly Jerusalem and a host of Angels, this is all in the spritual realm in our hearts and minds etc. As Jesus said the Kingdom of God is gonna be WITHIN you via that good seed the Living WORDS of God. And that good seed is gonna form Christ in us which is the H.G our NEW INNEMAN which answers to the new Heaven and the new earth as Isaiah said as the new heaven and the new earth shall remain so shall thy seed and name remain OUR SEED AND NAME IS THE WORD OF GOD THE SEED OF THE SOWER, the contents of the book, The new covenant . Thats y God said i will give them a new heart and a new spirit which is our new innerman the H.G. Not a literal new earth or new heaven ,its in the Spritual realm as the H.G is in the spirtual realm. Behold i make all things new means everybody is gonna get a new heart and a new spirit which is the H.G. that new Jerusalem, thats y its called the city of the LIVING GOD AS GOD IS SPIRIT . Ya gotta realize there is absolutely nothin wrong with this beautiful earth ,Its only our Old ADAMIC NATURE which is in rank with satan that needs to be destroyed with his baptism of fire etc and thats what the new heaven and the new earth is a new heart and a new spirit ( Christ in you ) the kingdom. And that is y the NEW BIRTH IS SO IMPORTANT we are gonna birth that new innerman via that good seed the Living Word . If i have told you earthy things and you believe not how shall you believe if i tell you of heavenly things ( That new earth and new heaven) being born from above etc. A new innerman our fruit unto God via that good seed etc. There are many scriptures that says that this earth ( the literal earth ) will abide FOR EVER, And I will destroy them that destroy the Earth . Outa the hearts of man proceeds all manner of evil, thats what needs destroyin
