WE ADMITTED WE WERE POWERLESS AND OUR LIVES
HAD BECOME UNMAGEABLE
Romans 3:23 says “Since we’ve compiled this long and sorry record as sinners, and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us”
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. with His help and guidance we are more than enough.
- Decide today to follow God’s direction for your recovery.
- Find one person in your support group who you have something in common with and commit to helping each other.
Prayer: Just for today Lord I commit to doing whatever You direct me to do and when I am struggling seek out someone to share it with
WE ARE ON A DIFFERENT PATH
Success in recovery is knowing God personally and living in a way that pleases him. It is loving him with everything you have—your passion, prayer, and your intelligence. The more you get to know him, the more you will love him.
Jesus said, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’ Matthew 22:37
Ecclesiastes 10 verse 10 Remember: The duller the axe the harder the work; Use your head: The more brains, the less muscle.
Refuse the kind of lifestyle choices the Bible says are worthless or dangerous to your long-term well-being. To obey God’s Word is to align your values with God’s.
Micah 6 verse 8 God already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just, be compassionate and loyal in your love, and don’t take yourself too seriously— take God seriously.
Godly living simply means valuing what God values. To have godly values, you need God living in you. He promises that when you ask him, he will send his Holy Spirit to live in you, helping you to value and to live out what is truly important
FAITH ALLOWS YOU TO WALK ON HIS PATH OF RECOVERY
One day at a time. It gives you the knowledge to know what the next right thing to do is and helps you to identify things that are no good for you.
2 Corinthians 1 verse 21 God affirms us, making us a sure thing in Christ, putting his Yes within us.
PRAYER Just for today Lord I commit to doing whatever You direct me to do and when I am struggling seek out someone to share it with.
