Recovery Devotion 152, 2017

GOD CARES

Matthew 5:3 “ Blessed are those who are spiritually needy. The kingdom of heaven belongs to them.”

We can’t earn access to the kingdom of heaven. It is a gift from God, given to us because of our spiritual need.

I love it when people say to me – recovery is a spiritual program. It has nothing to with God or the Bible. My response is always the same – try taking God out of the recovery process and see how far you get.

We all need God and we all need to understand:

– He loves us.
– H e cares about us.
– If we want to succeed in the recovery process, we need to learn to depend on Him.

Change in our character is not for God’s benefit it’s for ours.

– Do you understand why you need to change?

 

Prayer: Lord teach me to depend on You and to work at changing myself
