Proverbs 14:30 A peaceful heart gives life to the body. But jealousy rots the bones.
Living in recovery per God’s will makes life valuable. Through this process, God asked us to choose life through following Jesus rather than leading life per our own sinful desires.
God wants us through the process to stop trying to control our own destiny and let Him guide us. This makes sense based on the way we lived prior to recovery and the fact that Christ knows better than us what is good for us and what we need to keep moving forward in life.
God also asks us to submit to Him in order that we might lose our self-centeredness and understand the value of our own lives and the lives of others in our circle of influence.
- What value do you place on your life and the lives of others now that you are progressing spiritually in recovery?
Prayer: Lord help me to place the same value on life as You do.
