As I have stated previously I grew up believing in God. What I didn’t believe is He had anything to offer me, because I believed God’s job was to help the weak and I never saw myself as weak.
I am and have always been a strong willed individual. I see what I want and I go after it.
In recovery this can be a strength or a weakness. Strength because when I made a conscious decision to pursue recovery it was with 100% commitment. Weaknesses because I do not always give the right consideration to other people’s views, and sometimes I have to admit God’s leading. What helps me to overcome this is I believe strongly God is in control of my life and the life of others and I need to let Him lead,
- Do you believe God is in control?
- Are you prepared to let Him lead?
What The Bible Says
Do your best, prepare for the worst– then trust God to bring victory. Proverbs 21:31
If you’re not sure, if you notice that you are acting in ways inconsistent with what you believe–some days trying to impose your opinions on others, other days just trying to please them–then you know that you’re out of line. If the way you live isn’t consistent with what you believe, then it’s wrong. Romans 14:23
He told me, My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness. Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9
Prayer: Lord today I give complete control of my life.
