God has a training plan for each of our lives. Whatever situation you find yourself in, no matter how difficult or easy it may seem God is using it to train you to be more like Jesus.
HIS TRAINING PLAN REQUIRES OUR WILLINGNESS
1 Timothy 4:7-8 says “Don’t have anything to do with godless stories and silly tales. Instead, train yourself to be godly. Training the body has some value. But being godly has value in every way. It promises help for the life you are now living and the life to come.”
Isaiah 1:19 You have to be willing to change and obey.
Daniel 3:28 “They were willing to give up their lives. They would rather die than serve or worship any god except their own God.”
Romans 13:1 You must be willing to obey completely those who rule over you. There are no authorities except the ones God has chosen. Those who now rule have been chosen by God.
Hebrews 13:13 Let us be willing to suffer the shame he suffered.
We all say we want recovery and are willing to go to any lengths to get it. But are we? All through the process of my life, Living Life Recovery God has challenged me to be willing to go places I felt uncomfortable, to do things I did not understand and to trust Him even when all seemed like it was falling apart. Through my willingness to let God be God and follow where He leads I have learned to do so many things I never thought I could and today I want to give the glory to Him. Because without Him I am nothing and have nothing worthwhile.
Today if you are struggling in your willingness to do what God wants you to do or go where God wants you to go I want to encourage you to put your faith in Him because he will never let you down.
