Let everyone on earth learn about you. Let every nation see how you save people. Psalms 67:2
Day: 27 August 2017
Hebrews 13:15 Through Jesus we should always bring God a sacrifice of praise, that is, words that acknowledge him.
Today I attended Church at The Bornia Salvation Army to meet up with a friend of mine who is currently in The Salvation Army, Bridge Programme at The Basin. It was so good to mix with these men and women as they worshipped God and to speak with a number of them after the service about my own experience, strength and hope through a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit.
It reminded me a lot of my early days at The Salvation Army Mount Baker Corps, whilst on the Bridge Programme and encouraged me to see the obvious signs of life transformation in people through what I still believe is the best recovery programme in the world. But then I could be biased.
Thank You, God, for the opportunity to experience Your presence in people’s lives/
You should be happy that you are sharing in Christ’s sufferings. You will be happy and full of joy when Christ shows his glory. 1 Peter 4:13
1 John 2:9 Suppose someone claims to be in the light but hates his brother or sister. Then he is still in the darkness.
Not everyone you meet on the journey of recovery is on the right path. In the Bible hatred and love as moral qualities are not primary emotions. They are attitudes expressed by our actions. In recovery knowing who’s on the right path is expressed in how they live, not what they say.
1 John 2:26 I’m writing these things to warn you about those who are trying to lead you down the wrong path. Recovery requires repentance and repentance needs to be accompanied by action.
Recovery means more than just knowing the process. It means putting the process into daily living.
- How are you applying the processes you are learning in recovery to you daily life?
Prayer: Help me to apply the things I am learning in recovery to my life daily.
