2016 Day 66
Step 10: Now that I am in the process of change, I will check myself daily to make sure I am not slipping back into my old ways and if I am, I will take steps to rectify it.
Hebrews 2:1 We must hold on all the more firmly to the truths we have heard, so that we will not be carried away.
Freedom comes from God dependency. Complacency can come from lengthy periods of self-sufficiency, resistence or refusal to indulge. We need to guard against complacency.
Paul says in 2 Corinthians 3:5 There is nothing in us that allows us to claim that we are capable of doing this work. The capacity we have comes from God. Through our addictive and compulsive behaviours God has humbled us and pointed us to Him instead of dependency on ourselves.
It’s easy to slip: Never lose sight of God. The sacred hands of Jesus are forever open to welcome us into personal relationship.
Relationship with Jesus is an important part of the process.
