We need to be aware in the process of recovery of our strengths and our weaknesses.

SIMPLE BUT NOT ALWAYS EASY
Matthew 4:17 “Change your life. God’s kingdom is here.”
Matthew 4:19 Jesus said to them, “Come with me”
LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE
Matthew 5:16 “By opening to others, you’ll prompt people to open with God”
RECONCILE WITH OTHERS
Matthew 5:23 -24 “This is how I want you to conduct yourself in these matters. If you enter your place of worship and, about to make an offering, you suddenly remember a grudge a friend has against you, abandon your offering, leave immediately, go to this friend and make things right. Then and only then, come back and work things out with God.”
God told Abram: “Leave your country, your family, and your father’s home for a land that I will show you. I’ll make you a great nation and bless you. I’ll make you famous; you’ll be a blessing. I’ll bless those who bless you; those who curse you I’ll curse. All the families of the Earth will be blessed through you.” So Abram left just as God said, and Lot left with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran. Genesis 12:1-4
These words keep ringing in our ears: Today, please listen; don’t turn a deaf ear as in the bitter uprising. Hebrews 3:15
Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it! 2 Corinthians 5:17
In the process of recovery, we are going to come across people who seem like they are in recovery.
Marriage is a committed relationship between a man and a woman. http://ow.ly/i/onjuR
Not everyone is mature enough to live a married life. It requires a certain aptitude and grace.
We need to realize and accept that things will not always go according to our plans
Don’t get caught out. Listen to God today and do what He says you should.
A Wycliffe Bible translator writes: “I went to the Amazon jungle in 1963 among the Apurina people. I was the first to challenge Satan’s dominion over this people. My purpose was to transfer them from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light.
“Unfortunately, in spite of a Master of Theology degree, I was not aware of these truths [about spiritual warfare]. I got clobbered! Satan wiped the floor with me. I didn’t understand what was happening.
“I knew that Satan and demons exist; the Bible is clear on that score. But I knew very little about how they operate and virtually nothing about the use of our weapons, whether for defense or offense. My professors transmitted the idea that demonic attack wouldn’t be a problem for us.
“[But] the warnings in the New Testament about conflict with Satan and demons are all addressed to believers. We are involved whether we want to be or not. And the stakes are high—the glory of God. Our enemy is committed to making us ineffective in our personal lives and in our ministries.

1 Corinthians 14:8 If the trumpet call can’t be distinguished, will anyone show up for the battle?
1 Peter 5:8-9 Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith.
Revelation 12:10-12 Then I heard a strong voice out of Heaven saying, Salvation and power are established! Kingdom of our God, authority of his Messiah! The Accuser of our brothers and sisters thrown out, who accused them day and night before God. They defeated him through the blood of the Lamb and the bold word of their witness. They weren’t in love with themselves; they were willing to die for Christ. So rejoice, O Heavens, and all who live there, but doom to earth and sea, For the Devil’s come down on you with both feet; he’s had a great fall; He’s wild and raging with anger; he hasn’t much time and he knows it.
Proverbs 25:28 A person without self-control is like a house with its doors and windows
