Slave to Gambling, Now Free in God | Danilo Palomar Story

Unknowingly, Danilo Palomar was trapped in a cage.

It seemed pleasurable yet Danilo grew up behind the bars of gambling. Passed on by his parents, Danilo resorted to borrowing money so that he could play the game of luck.

Worst is that he would waste the money, which he saved for school as a working student, on gambling.

Danilo remained tangled in this addiction even after getting married. His desire to raise easy money through gambling greatly affected their food business.

He couldn’t see the effects of his addiction – the debts he accumulated and the heartbreak it brought his wife.

But then, God wouldn’t let Danilo stay and get further in the path of slavery to his vices.

Danilo got invited for a part-time work one day, with a condition requiring him to attend church. Enticed by easy money, he went for the job.

Never did he think that the opportunity will lead him to God. He received the miracle of transformation and got the will to turn his back from gambling and his other vices.

In his surrender, Danilo found that he doesn’t need money as much as he did. To him, it is more important to find the treasure that will never perish – the eternal life that Jesus has gave him.

As Romans 6:16 says, “Do you not know that when you offer yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves to the one you obey, whether you are slaves to sin leading to death, or to obedience leading to righteousness?”

Danilo is now free from being a slave to vices and is experiencing a life of freedom in Jesus.

“I have grown to love God more. I cannot understand it but this I know – God is mighty and He is now my everything,” Danilo said.
