Recovery Devotion 158, 2017

2 Corinthians 5:17 Anyone who believes in Christ is a new creation. The old has gone! The new has come!

One of my favourite Bible verses. This in my recovery saved my life.

I never believed when it came to step six change in my character was possible. Anyone who knows me will tell you I am a creature of habit. Always have been, always will be. I don’t adapt well to change. And, I always prefer to be in control.

This one verse gave me new hope in my life. Hope that if I trusted God and did what He told me to do I never needed to be the person I was in the past again.

I want to tell you, in my recovery journey I experienced so much change. In me, in my circumstances and in my life. Changes that without God’s interaction would have led me straight to relapse.

Today I am a different person because I believed what the Bible says about change.


Prayer: God help me today to accept change and run with it.
