I keep praying to you, Lord, hoping this time you will show me favour. Psalm 69:13
Nothing is hopeless with God. As we progress in recovery we may think “What’s the point?” Feeling we are wasting our time and wasting our time are two totally different things. ‘We are never helpless with God’ We are never without ‘HOPE’ God is the source of all hope and when we feel hopeless He reminds us to ’turn our lives over to Him and totally depend on Him.’
Remember we live in a fallen world. A world where good behaviour is not always rewarded and bad behaviour is not always punished. Sin has made the world unpredictable and ugly. In the process of recovery we need to make sure our behaviour matches up with Jesus example of living right.
Remember God is sovereign. Faith in Him is justified even when all seems hopeless and faith based on reward is hollow. Unshakable faith is built on the confidence that His ultimate purpose will result if we ‘seek through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with Him and His power to do his will.’
