And there was no way that they could deliver themselves out of their hands. (Mosiah 21:5)

For I am unworthy to glory of myself. (Mosiah 23:11)

And were it not for the interposition of their all-wise Creator,…they must unavoidably remain in bondage until now. (Mosiah 29:19; emphasis added)

Here are three more scriptures to “liken unto ourselves” if we want them to really speak to us. Blending them together, we might hear them say: There is no way, child, that you can deliver yourself from your enemies—your fear, your anger, and your guilt—that you are attempting to avoid by using your addiction. Avoidance is not deliverance. Of yourself you are unworthy and have no glory or power. Until you realize that it is the power of Christ and His atonement and grace that is “sufficient for you” (Moroni 10:32), you will remain in bondage, having no power of yourself to freeyourself.

We must all come to a place where we realize the following as Ammon did:

Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my own strength I am weak;
therefore I will not boast of myself. (Alma 26:12)

He Did Deliver Me From Bondage, p 20
