In one way or another, God makes sure that we all experience what it means to be outside so that he can personally open the door and welcome us back in. Romans 11:32
God gave us all free will. Even though He knew the mistakes we were all going to make. The addictions and compulsions we were all going to fall for He let us make our own choices.
God also gives us all the opportunity to rectify our mistakes. Jesus came to save sinners. God’s opportunity for us to be reunited with Him. To live our lives according to His purpose.
One of the hardest things for any of us to do is admit failure.
The ‘Good News’ is we are now in a place where everyone is on the same page and we are all aiming for the same goal ‘recovery from the pain our problems have caused us through our bad choices.’
None of us is good enough to achieve recovery on our own. The Bible tells us that. We all need God’s help and we all need each other.
We are all in recovery because of the opportunity Christ presented via the cross and the involvement of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives.
Prayer: Today God I commit to looking out for the opportunities You present, especially when I am struggling seek out someone to share it with.
