Testifying at NPC Rongai – addiction recovery


Last weekend I visited a church, Nairobi Pentecostal Church – Rongai, where I was invited to share my testimony and encourage the congregation. I am glad that God chose such an unworthy vessel such as me to do his work. I give glory to Him, my deliverer, giver of life and my strength.

It was great to testify once again boldly professing God as my deliverer as this journey is not easy. He saved my spirit, he is transforming my mind each day and I believe that some day I shall be resurrected with Christ in his second coming.

So, just to give a highlight on the solution I have seen practically working in so many men. Fighting sexual sin as I have come to find out cannot be won in a short time. It is a journey and you need to fight one day at a time. If you have a problem with sexual sin;

  1. the 1st step if to admit that you have a problem. Share with someone of the same gender who can pray with you, who will not condemn you and will continue to encourage you.
  2. 2nd, accountability with this person is important. Each addicts story is unique. You have to know what makes you vulnerable and set resolutions for yourself that you will be held accountable to. No one will get you out other than by trusting God to help you through this and being accountable
  3. Then engage the battle;
  • Through your eyes – Starve your eyes and learn to bounce off everything sensual that arouses you. Memorise and use the word of God as a shield (when all is ok) and sword (during temptation). eg Job 31:1, Eph 5:2, Gal 2:20,
  • Through your mind – Feed your mind daily with the word and pray. Learn to create a filter on what goes into your mind. It all starts with a thought.
  • Through your heart – Fight for all that you value, your life in eternity, your children, your wife (present/future), your calling (job/in church)

I hope this helps someone out there.

    I was at Nairobi Chapel when you shared your testimony..It was such an eye opener.Thank you. God bless you and enlarge your ministry to reach many I came to know of I-stopped during that service and I wish many people knew about it since many could find help here as they could be ashamed to open up to people around them.

      Hi Faith,
      Thank you very much for your comments. I appreciate the time you took to give me feedback. I guess the strongest way to spread the testimony has been word of mouth. There is true power in testifying.

    I know of your journey and it is amazing to see how the Lord is using you in great ways. Who would have thought that stuff that once was shameful would be used to put you on the pulpit in different churches, on magazines and even on radio..keep the fire burning,your’s is a true testimony of God using broken vessels!!
