1 Corinthians 15:34 You should come back to your senses and stop sinning. Some of you don’t know anything about God.
Understanding God is not as important in recovery as obeying Him is. I think A.A. is a great fellowship and it has helped millions of people find recovery across the world. One of my problems with A.A. is the concept of ‘God as I understand Him.’
I have a confession to make: “I don’t understand God” What I do understand is that He loves me and because of Him and the influence of His Holy Spirit in my life I live a life that s far better than anything I could have ever imagined for myself, Jesus disciples though they spent a lot of time with Him. Seen Him do a lot of miracles and heard everything He said still had difficulty understanding Him.
May God give you discernment and understanding as you go through the process of Life Recovery. He didn’t give you an understanding heart, perceptive eyes or attentive ears until right now. Now is your time to become all that He has planned for you to be. Above all and before all He wants you to do this: Get wisdom! and Get understanding! It takes wisdom to complete the process, and understanding to set it on a firm foundation.
We got the basics from Moses. But endless knowledge and understanding come through Jesus.
The way God designed our bodies is a model for understanding our lives together: every part dependent on every other part. In recovery and in life we need OTHERS to know and to understand God, His Word, ourselves, and what He expects from us.
