October 5 Chp 51 v 17 TWELVE STEPPING WITH STRENGTH FROM THE PSALM
The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit.You will not reject a broken and repentant heart ,O God .
STEP 1 - We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable.
I have said it before and I will say it again. Addiction is the By-product of a broken heart and a very hard head . Many of our prayers go unanswered because we are too busy playing God .God cant fix your broken heart and remove the desire to use if your playing his part .In the Psalm God is giving you a promise that you will not be rejected if your step 1 is sincere from a broken heart .Getting the heart broken is one of the easiest things we do to ourselves. Denial and Pride are two of the most common heart breakers in the world. Throw in outside sources such as abusive addictive parents to your mix and you will wind up with a prideful self preserving person with a iron clad impenetrable heart .Surrender and brokenness are Gods key to removing your self medicating ways .The blinders are gonna have to come off and if your not willing to remove them God will do it for you through your foolishness. You are the greatest of all his creations.The gift of life he has freely given you is not to be lived defeated , addicted , and way below your potential. Intelligence is one of the gifts we have been given but your pride has strangled it into submission and left you stuck in self defeating ways. When your down and only then God will pick you back up again ,brush you off dry your tears and put you back together again.
Proverb 4: 23 Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.
