Philippians 2:14 Do everything without finding fault or arguing.
Obedience to God and His recovery process is often difficult. Many of the problems and issues we came in with are still present in our lives. Because we are now in the process some of our issues can seem even worse now that we are taking time to look at them instead of ignoring them. Sometimes this can lead us to the belief we are never going to successfully achieve recovery. That’s not true. Suffering is an important part of the recovery process.
You have heard the cliché “No gain without pain.” Sometimes pain is necessary in order for God to get our attention. Many people in the world today don’t respond to the biblical truth until they experience pain. That’s why we all have a rock-bottom experience.
- Are you willing to listen to God?
Prayer: Lord help me to keep going, even when it hurts. Let me see the goal and keep moving towards it.
