Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.


Americans are drowning in a culture of addiction. Everything from drugs to alcohol is sucking people under. The social and political tensions in the current society exacerbate the problem. Groups like Alcoholics Anonymous continue to help people who struggler fight this problem. However, sometimes more is needed.

Here’s additional help.  Miraculous intervention can come through the faith of another person who walks with us through difficult days. Ron Adams (a fictitious name to protect the person’s identity) found that his wife Joyce’s faith made the difference in his recovery. Make no mistake about the fact that an addiction is frighteningly hard to break.

Ron and I became good friends after he gained control over his problem. One evening he told me his story.

During the years that he was an insurance salesman, Ron began drinking heavily. With an outgoing and engaging personality, he tried to cover his constant drinking, but the act failed. Joyce could see his blurry eyes, glazed look, and staggering gait when he came home in the evening. Her faith became the key that unlocked the sealed door in Ron’s mind.

Any possibility of faith in God was non-existent. As his drinking became even more compulsive, Ron had no idea where to turn because he didn’t believe in much of anything and his personal relationship with himself was crumbling by the hour.

However, Ron knew Joyce had a firm and consistent faith in God as well as exhibiting a personal relationship with her heavenly Father. The only thing keeping her staying with him was her unshakable faith. Could she have enough faith to carry them through? Ron believed she did. Desperate, he had no other place to turn. Ron made a decision to hold on to her faith.

That was the turning point.

When Ron wanted to drink, he would talk it over with Joyce. He kept holding onto her faith as his means of staying sober. Joyce kept praying. As the days passed, he stayed away from the booze. Without medication, a therapy group, or outside help Ron found his way to sobriety and a new-found faith. He personally discovered a God who could thwart his compulsion.

Ron believed that he had received a miracle.

If you, or someone you know, can’t handle an addiction, here is a way to that miracle by allowing someone else’s faith to be your support and strength until you find your own. You can act like you believe until you truly do believe. When you struggle throughout the dark, call out to the God who created you. He would be delighted to  bring you into the light and  help you  become whole.

Remember miracles never cease!
