Stop Trying To Be Someone You Are Not

Read: Luke 7:24-28
Focus Verse: Luke 7:28

John the Baptist committed himself to being who God called him to be. A prophet sent by God to prepare the way for Jesus.

As we go through the process of recovery. Learn the Twelve Steps and apply them to our daily lives God will reveal to us each His purpose for our lives. In doing so He promises to be with us always, guiding and strengthening us. Revealing His plan to us as we mature and grow spiritually.

We may think recovery is too difficult for us. That we cannot become the person God is calling us to be. News Flash! We already are. God is not calling us to be anyone other than the people He intended us to be. God in His wisdom created us, knowing we wouldn’t always get it right. Knowing we would make mistakes. Knowing there would be time all of us would intentionally ignore Him. Knowing that He included in each of our unique plans time to grow, times to get to know Him better and times for selfishness, self-seeking ambition,. Times when we will try to be anyone but who He created us to be.

The reality for each of us today is we are exactly where God knew we would be and He is patiently waiting to see what we choose to do next so He can get on with creating His plan in and through our lives.

RECOVERY IS A CHOICE
Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!
Deuteronomy 30:19

THE CHOICE IS OURS
Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil. Proverbs 4:25-27

CHOICES DEFINE OUR FUTURE
God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him. James 1:12
