Isaiah 29:9-10 A Eternal High In The Spirit Of the Lord

Isaiah 29:9-10

10 Be delayed and wait, blind yourselves and be blind; They become drunk, but not with wine, they stagger, but not with strong drink.10 For the Lord has poured over you a spirit of deep sleep,He has shut your eyes, the prophets; And He has covered your heads, the seers.

My life before Christ, was always looking for a way to get high. Marijuara, LSD, & any kind of alcoholic beverage. Once I was offered cocaine, but I wasn’t brave enough to try it. But the High I get now living the presence of God my Creator, never comes down & the side effects are not harmful. I still have friends who get drunk & smoke pot, they ask me if I think it’s okay, since marijuara is a natural plant & grows like wildflowers. My thoughts are this, drugs & alcohol are a way for people to escape the troubles of the world, or simply relax. Maybe or maybe I support marijuare or having a beer once & awhile, but giving the Lord your concerns & resting in Him is way better.

Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

But a lot of people who read scripture say, where God put green plants in the Garden of Eden to consume, therefore, it must be good.

Genesis 1:30 and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to everything that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so.

If you were students of the word of God, you would know, Adam & Eve, had no stress or worries in the Garden of Eden. So when they ate any green plant, it was in the form of a salad to feed their hungry stomach, not a release from a hard day’s work, hard labor didn’t come until after Adam & Eve disobey God.

Genesis 3:19 By the sweat of your face You will eat bread, Till you return to the ground, Because from it you were taken; For you are dust, And to dust you shall return.”

So does a son or daughter of the God most High need drugs or alcohol, as escape the stress of daily life? Maybe you should study God’s word & learn for yourself. But the Lord gives pastors & teachers like myself to tell you what God’s says about matters like this & many others. Plenty of Bible passages say alcohol can cause trouble & a couple say it can be a benefit. Both Alcohol & drugs can make your mind think and do crazy things & be more open to sin. Scripture if you are not sober minded you more than likely to sin less. God Bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you & so do I. Sam H.

1 Corinthians 15:34 Become sober-minded as you ought, and stop sinning; for some have no knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.
