Joy is a result of Worship
The LORD spoke to Moses, “Tell the Israelites: These are the appointed festivals with the LORD, which you must announce as holy assemblies. Leviticus 23;1-2
Worship involves both celebration and confession. God encourages joy in recovery. He wants us to celebrate recovery. He also wants us to seriously reflect on our attitudes and actions and go to Him with immediate confession of sin when it is necessary. In recovery we all need a balance between celebrating who God is and what He has done in us.
