In his place shall arise a vile person ……. he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue. Daniel 11:21
In recovery, we realize there is no mincing of words, no pulling the wool over our eyes, no departure from honesty and no infiltration of fantasy. We face the facts, we see ourselves as we really are, warts and all. But we also see the hidden credentials. We are confronted with the truth of the Bible and challenged to consider Christ.
A caring God gives high premium to those who drugged by lies and ruined by recklessness come to sanity and rectify their mistakes, ideas, and ways. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:7 This is the commendable thing in honesty to do: Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Isaiah 55:6
It is incumbent on us, to be honest, and face up to the truth. Not allowing ourselves to be cheated by an abundance of intrigue, should it appear. We need to maximize our effort at gaining God’s commendation for seeking and knowing Jesus Christ as our One True Higher Power. 2 Timothy 2:15 “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” Jesus said Luke 12:2 There is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.
