I once was a slave to an addiction. My addiction eventually led to criminal acts that resulted in incarceration. Following the exposure of my addiction I managed to live a tolerable recovery. Little was I aware that God was working in my life and desired that I experience genuine recovery.
Today I gladly proclaim that Jesus has set me free. I will always face temptations as we all do. However, I have become an over comer with a “genuine victory”. As I began to facilitate groups and emphasize to others the permanency of the work of Jesus I became convinced and trusted my Savior to release me from the bondage of my addiction.
As I began to read and study more closely than ever the life of Jesus I was enlightened by His Holy Spirit of the truth of the miracles of Jesus. He went about doing good, healing the lame, giving sight to the blind, raising the dead, forgiving sin and meeting the physical and spiritual needs of all who by faith would trust Him.
It was obvious that when He healed the lame man that he was totally healed. He did not have to go to an orthopedic surgeon or to physical therapy. In fact he did not even walk with a limp. He was totally healed of his lameness.
When Jesus healed the blind man he was made to see. He did not begin with a blurry view of the environment around him. He did not go to the optometrist and get a prescription for glasses. He was able to see. He was totally healed of his blindness.
