Living Life Recovery Reflection #233

Let God Use You

2 Timothy 1:7 God didn’t give us a spirit that makes us weak and fearful. He gave us a spirit that gives us power and love. It helps us control ourselves.

 Power and love are two of the main drivers of our spiritual growth.

Gods power is available to us through our everyday living. It is easy for us as we go through the process of recovery to believe “God only uses special people and I am not special.”

 Often in my life when I talk to the Holy Spirit I ask God the question “Why me?” Because I feel pretty special. Knowing where I was, what happened and where I am now makes me feel like God really cares about me.

Every time I ask God that question He gives me the same answer. “Why not you?” Recovery has nothing to do with how good we are and everything to do with how available we are to be used by God.

  • Are you open and available to God?


Prayer: God use me today wherever You think I am needed.

You can look forward to sharing God’s glory.

Gos says your okay

Great blessings belong to those whose thoughts are pure. They will be with God. Control yourselves and be careful! The devil is your enemy, and he goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to attack and eat. Refuse to follow the devil. Stand strong in your faith. You know that your brothers and sisters all over the world are having the same sufferings that you have.  We have been made right with God because of our faith. So we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through our faith, Christ has brought us into that blessing of God’s grace that we now enjoy. And we are very happy because of the hope we have of sharing God’s glory. With God’s power working in us, he can do much, much more than anything we can ask or think of
