Episode 10.
Titled: Modified.

My name is Mr Gabriel Osom , I live in Lagos and this is my true story on the intervention!🤵🏿

Prologue.

There’s a time when we feel all hope is lost, and that we can never rise up.

There’s a time when the situation looks so tough, and the journey so rough that we are about to give up.

But then something happens. Something beyond our imagination! Something beyond our expectation! Something I call the INTERVENTION!!

**********************************

Indeed the devil’s plan is to steal, kill and destroy. He does not have a good plan for anyone and it pleases him whenever we commit secret sin, because that gives him the right to stand before God and boldly accuse us. This was my case many years back, as I drowned in the sea of secret sin.

***********************************

Before I became born again, I was living a life of sin which no one knew about. Neither my siblings nor my close friend knew about it, because I properly covered my sin that no one was aware of my addiction.

I got addicted to watching pornographic videos through an extended family member whose mobile phone was full of porn videos. From the first day I watched a video and failed to expose the evil act, my life never remained the same again. Although I appeared to be good on the outside, I was dirty and filthy on the inside.

From watching pornographic videos, I moved to having a girlfriend, which was against the principles and values given to me by my parents and religion. I got so entangled in the relationship and in sin, that I started engaging in some acts which I couldn’t believe. I visited so many pornography sites in order to download the videos on my phone so I could satisfy my immoral desires.

I got so addicted to the act, it began to affect my mind. Sometimes I felt I will run mad, but still no one knew about it. Absolutely no one! I attended church services, to see if I could get a solution from the sermon preached, I was slowly dying inside. I knew within me that the only solution was to expose it, but I was too scared to do so, so I covered my sin and continued to wallow in it.

Fortunately for my soul, I became very ill and I thought I was going to die and go to hell. I called one of my leaders in the church and confessed to him, thinking I was already giving up. I cried and cried and cried to God for Mercy but it seemed He wasn’t responding. Finally out of His Mercy, He healed me and I became strong again, but I went back to my vomit, because of the ungodly relationship I kept with my girlfriend.

My conscience troubled me greatly, I wanted to be free but immoral desires kept pulling me back to the ground. Finally, after much battle in my heart, I took a strong stand to amend my ways and live a clean life. I broke up with my girlfriend (even though she does not know why I did) to show how serious I was in my decision.

Out of the desire to please God and amend my ways, I started studying the Word of God. I started by reading the book of Mathew, chapter by chapter each day till I was done with the entire book.

And guess what?

That addiction left me and I was filled with God’s word, and the evil urge had no place to dwell in me again. This reminds me of His Word in Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled”.

I also began to preach to people individually and in commercial vehicles, proud to be a lover and son of God. And the great news is that from the day of my deliverance till now, I have never gone back to that addiction nor desired it.

In conclusion, I would love to end on this note:”The word of God is hard for a hardened heart, but soft for a solemn spirit.” This means the word of God can deliver you from every addiction, if you will just be broken to the Lord.
