MARCH 15 V 33 TWELVE STEPPING WITH POWER IN THE PROVERB
Reverence for the Lord is an education in itself .You must be humble before you can ever receive honors.
STEP 1 - We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and dysfunctional- behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable.
Reverence is respect for God and when it comes to active addiction I had none. My favorite thing to do back then was to throw the Precious name of our Lord Jesus in a swear around like my whole world was falling apart and it was His fault. If someone were to disrespect you your response would be is to attack and then walk away ..right . Well what do you think the Lord does , yep your right He takes your hurtful words and the pain you cause him and ,no he does not hold it against you like I would ! You can pray to God all you want for sobriety but he is not gonna listen or help until you start giving Him the reverence and respect He deserves. The Proverb is deep but it is clear instructions on how to receive the help we so desperately seek. Step one will teach you how , but you got to do your part stop using His name as a curse word . When its warm and sunny outside thank Him . When your coming of a five day binge and your not dead or behind bars thank Him . God is not asking you to be a priest or a nun all He wants is some respect you give Him that then He will hear your prayers and help you find sobriety
.Matthew chapter 10 v 38 - Those who do not take up their cross and follow in my STEPS are not fit to be my disciples .
