Unless the Lord had helped me, I would soon have settled in the silence of the grave. 18 I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me.19 When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.
We can count on no one but God to help us overcome our addictions and compulsions. When we are tempted to relapse He is there keeping us from falling because He is our defender. He does not allow temptation to destroy us beyond hope.
God is involved in our recovery, encouraging us to seek His will for our lives and His power to live as He wants us to.
