God’s eye is on those who respect him, the ones who are looking for his love. Psalms 33:18
God Rejoices when we follow His will, live our lives in every area to His plan and purpose. Now I know that is not easy but that is why it is called ‘Spiritual Growth’ None of us got to the point in our lives overnight where we thought ‘I think I will follow God’ It was a process of trial and error where we tried things and sometimes failed, but we never stopped trying.
It says in 1 John 2:9 Anyone who claims to live in God’s light and hates a brother or sister is still in the dark.
- LOVING GOD IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT IN THE BIBLE
- LOVE NEVER QUITS
- GOD’S LOVE IS BEYOND OUR UNDERSTANDING
- GOD’S LOVE IN US IDENTIFIES US AS HIS
One of the identifications of being on the right track in recovery is how we treat and react to others. Through us God wants to love others who still suffer from the negative effects of addiction and compulsion. A very wise mentor of mine told me many years ago “Archie because of who you are. because of your experience, strength, and hope you have been given the ability to reach people that won’t even talk to me.” God’s love not only sets us free it prepares us to be used by him to make a difference in the lives of others.
