Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified, the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart. Be strong, all you who hope in the Lord. Your courage and unity will show the scoffers what they’re up against: defeat for them, a victory for you—and both because of God.

The Bible isn’t Spooky!
God won’t put up with rebels; he’ll cull them from the pack. Psalms 34:16
I have a friend whom I have known for quite a few years now and have walked the recovery road with, who talks about ‘spooky stuff’ continually happening to him. He is talking about the Holy Spirit’s moving in his life.
There are verses in the Bible that concerned me when I first read them. That’s why the Bible needs to be investigated and not just read.
This verse is talking about God’s authority over us.
There is no point in pursuing spiritual recovery and growth without letting ‘God be God’
Growing up I attended Sunday School. I belonged to the Boys Brigade. I learned who God was and I learned who Jesus was but I never learned about God’s authority over me.
One of my biggest problems as a teenager and in my early adulthood was acknowledging and accepting authority.
DON’T IGNORE GOD
The Holy Spirit says, Today, please listen; don’t turn a deaf ear as in “the bitter uprising,” that time of wilderness testing! Hebrews 3:7-8
GOD FIRST IN EVERYTHING
This is the assigned moment for him to move into the center, while I slip off to the sidelines. John 3:30
People who hate discipline and only get more stubborn, There’ll come a day when life tumbles in and they break, but by then it’ll be too late to help them. Proverbs 29:1
#Learn #Recovery #Discipline
Prayer: God let me know today that You are, God and I am not.
