SPIRITUAL FOUNDATIONS

“These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock”.  Matthew 7:24

God’s Word is foundational for the recovery process. It is our foundation stone, designed for building our lives on.

We are all unique. God created us all in His image, but He also created us as individuals.

Today I want to encourage everyone to find out what works for you. There is only one way to achieve recovery as far as I am aware. That is God’s way!

Do not be pressured by others to do what they did. You are not them.

Take time to get to know God and His plan for you and then establish your foundations built on how He guides you. God will not guide you in any direction that goes against his Word,

  • What is God saying to you about His plan for your life?

Prayer: God help me listen for, establish and apply Your will for my life

  • CHRIST IS THE ANSWER

Remember, there is only one foundation, the one already laid: Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:11

John 3:16 “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.”

Romans 15:13 May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!

  • TRUSTING HIM MAKES LIFE STABLE

The Master, God says: “Watch closely. I’m laying a foundation in Zion, a solid granite foundation, squared and true. And this is the meaning of the stone: A TRUSTING LIFE WON’T TOPPLE. Isaiah 28:16

Proverbs 3:5 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.

Proverbs 10:9 Honesty lives confident and carefree, but Shifty is sure to be exposed.

Hebrews 12:28 Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander.

  • GOD HAS IT ALL PLANNED

I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. Jeremiah 29:11

Romans 8:27-28 He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.

Proverbs 16:9 We plan the way we want to live, but only God makes us able to live it.

  • GOD IS WATCHING US

The bottom’s dropped out of the country; good people don’t have a chance”? But God hasn’t moved to the mountains; his holy address hasn’t changed. He’s in charge, as always, his eyes taking everything in, his eyelids Unblinking, examining Adam’s unruly brood inside and out, not missing a thing.  Psalms 11:3-4
