GIVING GOD PERMISSION
Job 31:6 Let God weigh me in honest scales.

Sometimes we allow our emotions to get in the way of our recovery progress.

Over the years I have been in recovery I have seen many people give up because they have a problem with a person or a situation over which they have no control.

In my life, I have given God permission to monitor my character and to address with me anything that exists in it that He does not approve of.

Sometimes that means me making changes in my life I may not like or agree with. It also means my life is a current process of internal change as I grow spiritually. Confession is not a one of event because even though we are in recovery we will still get it wrong sometimes.

– When has God revealed to you change is still required in your character?

Prayer: God show me today areas I still need to change
