TWELVE STEPPING WITH STRENGTH FROM SCRIPTURE
Step 3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God.
Psalm 40 v 2 -He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet on a rock, and established my steps.
Miry - very muddy
Did you ever run in real deep mud? Most of us have and it was almost impossible to move in any direction! Getting out of the mud was even worse and pulling with all your might meant losing your shoes. Sounds a lot like addiction to me. Almost impossible to get out and you lose stuff trying to escape! Sometimes you get one foot out and the other one gets stuck. You try to run but you get stuck running in place because you can't get any traction. Sobriety for a little while and a slip and right into relapse.This without a doubt is the essence of addiction! The scripture verse is telling you how to get out of the mud of addiction. Surrender, Believe and Pray! God will not only pull you out, He will put you on solid ground and establish your steps.
