Believe The Bible

Psalm 130: With all my heart I wait for the Lord to help me. I put my hope in his word.

As we go through the process of spiritual recovery these Twelve Steps challenge us to ‘Believe the Bible’ To accept it as God’s Word and to trust if we learn it and apply it to our life’s life will get better.

Before coming into recovery, I knew of the Bible I had seen a couple. I had been taught some of the familiar Bible stories in Sunday school. I had seen some of the stories in movies.

My first encounter with the Bible in recovery was through a devotional book I bought pre-becoming a Christian called ‘God’s Word’ Through that devotional I believe that God began communicating with me. It was following a relapse after eighteen months of sobriety in A.A. I believe God spoke to me for the first time. Or maybe it’s just the first time I heard Him.

  • Have you ever heard God speak to you?
  • Did you listen and obey

#Listen #Hear #Follow

My children, come. Listen to me. I will teach you to have respect for the Lord. Psalms 34:11

I guide you in the way of wisdom. I lead you along straight paths. Proverbs 4:11

Where two or three people meet together in my name, I am there with them.” Matthew 18:20

We belong to God. And those who know God listen to us. But those who don’t belong to God don’t listen to us. That’s how we can tell the difference between the Spirit of truth and the spirit of lies. 1 John 4:6

Prayer: Lord speak to me today and let me hear You.
