Hearing and Understanding
Proverbs 2:2 Let your ears listen to wisdom. Apply your heart to understanding.
Growing up we learn to hear. Maturity comes when we understand and apply what we have heard to our lives.
Now, not everything we hear is wisdom, nor good for us so we need to practice through the process of recovery to discern between what to apply and what to reject.
In the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous I would hear the words ‘take what you want and leave the rest.’ Which basically left me to choose what I accepted and rejected from the program. A dangerous option for someone who had spent their life doing just that.
Recovery is not about taking what you want. Recovery is about understanding you need to do what God wants.
- Are you ready to accept your need to do what God wants?

What The Bible Says
My people will live in the safety of my shade. They will grow like grain. They will bloom like vines.
We will no longer be babies in the faith. We won’t be like ships tossed around by the waves. We won’t be blown here and there by every new teaching. We won’t be blown around by the cleverness and tricks of people who try to hide their evil plans. Instead, we will speak the truth in love. We will grow up into Christ in every way.
Prayer: Lord today open my heart and mind to You.
