The Road to Recovery – Step 2

We continue a series on the Road to Recovery, finding healing for our hurts, habits and hang-ups, as expressed by Rick Warren, and based on the Beatitudes of Matthew 5.

Step 2—Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him and that He has the power to help me recover. I don’t have the power, but God does; not only does God know best, but He has my best interests at heart. My choice is to do life on my own, or to humbly bring my life to God and experience His supernatural divine comfort. Turn to Him in the power of the Holy Spirit today.

The Road to Recovery – Step 1

“God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him,
for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.” Matthew 5:3 (NLT)

We begin a new series on the Road to Recovery, finding healing for our hurts, habits and hang-ups, as expressed by Rick Warren, and based on the Beatitudes of Matthew 5.

Step 1—Realize I am not God. As long as I continue to think I can ‘fix’ myself if I just try hard enough, I will fall. Only from a position of humility can I approach God in His holiness. Only as I admit my poverty of spirit and my powerlessness in the face of my sinful desires can I become open to letting God empower me to both choose and do good. Ask God for that humility today.
