If you choose not to work on your recovery, you’re choosing to get high! The little foxes will creep in and erode your recovery foundation. When you don’t choose God’s truth, you’re inadvertently choosing the devil’s lie. It’s critical to understand that no choice is making a choice. It’s extremely dangerous when you choose to entertain doubt, fear, anger, low self-esteem, condemnation, worry, anxiety, and lies. God’s given you the authority to use his weapons to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.
This is about progress, a day at a time, to let go and let God. You’re no longer a slave but God’s own child and everything he has belongs to you. The Father gives you the authority to move out of your mind and stop being critical of yourself for the times you fall short. You actually glorify God by asking for his help, submitting to his authority, and knowing Jesus’ blood already covers the circumstance you’re so worried about.
Just as you believed who the enemy said you were, it’s okay to now receive who God says you are—one of his kids.
Lord, I pray I will forget yesterday and receive what you’ve got for me today. I desire to throw a grateful party for you rather than a hissy-fit for me.
