Step Two: I believe God exists, that he cares about me and He can help
me to regain control of my life.
“Time’s up! God’s kingdom is here. Change your life and believe the Message.”
Psalm 130: With all my heart I wait for the Lord to help me. I put my hope in his word.
As we go through the process of spiritual recovery these Twelve Steps challenge us to ‘Believe the Bible’ To accept it as God’s Word and to trust if we learn it and apply it to our lives life will get better.
Before coming into recovery I knew of the Bible I had seen a couple. I had been taught some of the familiar Bible stories in Sunday school. I had seen some of the stories in movies.
My first encounter with the Bible in recovery was through a devotional book I bought
pre-becoming a Christian called ‘God’s Word’ Through that devotional I believe that God began communicating with me. It was following a relapse after eighteen months of sobriety in A.A. I believe God spoke to me for the first time. Or maybe it’s just the first time I heard Him.
- Have you ever heard God speak to you?
- Did you listen and obey?
