Aside

John 17:14-15 I gave them your word; The godless world hated them because of it, Because they didn’t join the world’s ways, Just as I didn’t join the world’s ways. I’m not asking that you take them out of the world But that you guard them from the Evil One.

A scientific study in the Journal of American Medical Association claimed that hospitalised heart patients supported by praying people needed fewer drugs and had fewer complications than those who were not.  In most cases as small group of three to seven people participated.

Recovery meetings provide support to those who gather to share, It benefits us when we draw to ourselves a small group of friends or fellow fighters against lifes problems for the purpose of regular prayer.

Matthew 18:20 says “When two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.”  A verse that should be quick to prompt action in our lives. A verse that raises tremendous posibbility for us to help each other as we walk the road of recovery together.
The WORD For Recovery

God Has a Plan

Aside

God speaks: “Exactly as I planned, it will happen. Following my blueprints, it will take shape. I will shatter the Assyrian who trespasses my land and stomp him into the dirt on my mountains. I will ban his taking and making of slaves and lift the weight of oppression from all shoulders.” This is the plan, planned for the whole earth, And this is the hand that will do it, reaching into every nation. God has planned it. Who could ever cancel such plans? His is the hand that’s reached out. Who could brush it aside?  Isaiah 14:24-27
The WORD For Recovery

Live Your Beliefs

Aside

Psalms 51:14 Take away my guilt. Then my tongue will sing about how right you are no matter what you do.

Guilt comes from giving in to our temptations. To eliminate guilt in our lives we need to eliminate the cause of our guilt. Because of who we are, where we have come from and what we are going through now all of us have some degree of guilty feelings. In the past, we have hidden them behind our problems and defects.

As we go through the process of recovery and especially in the process of repairing relationships we need to learn to lean on God. We need to learn recovery is a process of daily confession our sin to God to avoid the temptations around about us.

Guilt in our lives comes from a failure to do what God expects us to do. Learn to live what you believe.

  •  Do your actions match your beliefs?
  • If not, why not?

God Doesn’t Come and Go

Aside

thought_for_today.pngDon’t you know anything? Haven’t you been listening? God doesn’t come and go. God lasts. He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine. He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch his breath. And he knows everything, inside and out. He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts. For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind.
