4o Days of Recovery ~ Day 39
Hebrews 13:16 Make sure you don’t take things for granted and go slack in working for the common good; share what you have with others. God takes particular pleasure in acts of worship–a different kind of “sacrifice”–that take place in kitchen and workplace and on the streets.
As we share our own spiritual recovery with others, we share the good news of God’s healing power. In so doing, we become stronger in our own recovery and stronger in our faith in God.
Realize You Changed When You Turned to God For Recovery
You groped your way through that murk once, but no longer. You’re out in the open now. The bright light of Christ makes your way plain. So no more stumbling around. Get on with it! Ephesians 5:8
Out in the open called and challenged by God to reach out to others still suffering the negative effects of addiction, compulsion and dysfunction.
Recovery Involves Moral Responsibilities and Opportunities
It’s what we trust in but don’t yet see that keeps us going. Do you suppose a few ruts in the road or rocks in the path are going to stop us? 2 Corinthians 5:7-8
Recovery is a continual process of spiritual growth that is reliant on daily contact and communication with God through the Holy Spirit.
Being in Recovery Involves Constantly Testing Ourselves
Figure out what will please Christ, and then do it. Ephesians 5:10
Step Ten Now that I am in the process of change, I will check myself daily to make sure I am not slipping back into my old ways and if I am, I will take steps to rectify it.
Constantly checking I am seeking to find and to do God’s will in every area of my life. And seeking His strength and His power to do what I need to do to live as an example to others so they too want to investigate His promises for their lives.
