God’s claims of always being good are grounded on His claims of being all-loving, all-kindness, and all-faithful. Getting to know Him and all He has done for us, is doing for us, and will do for us is the strongest argument for obedience to His will any of us needs to move forward in recovery and spiritual growth.
How many times as a child are we told when questioning things in our lives “God made it” and been content to believe what we were told.
When we look honestly at where we have been, what we have done, and where we are now how can any of us doubt God’s intervention in our lives? He has kept us safe to reach where we are right now As children He has allowed us enough life experience to realize our need for Him and has offered us the opportunity to love and to serve Him.
Service to God through recovery, giving up our selfish ambitions for His Divine will makes us courageous enough to face the future in the knowledge He cars about us, equips us, and prepares us to become better versions of ourselves in His strength.
2 Timothy 3:17 says “Through the Word, we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.”
My hope and prayer today is that everyone reading this will seek and find their S.H.A.P.E. according to His will so that everyone He brings into our spheres of influence will seek to find their S.H.A.P.E and pass on the message of God’s love to all who still suffer from the negative effects of addiction and compulsion..
