Lesson #25: The 7 Reasons We Get Stuck !
“Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” Galatians 5:25
Just as there are many things that are beneficial to and essential for our recovery, there are unfortunately also many things that can threaten to side-track or even derail our recovery completely. This week, we’ll be discussing some common pitfalls that can face us. Once we’ve identified these threats to our continued recovery, it will be far easier for us to recognize when one of them is present in our lives. We will then be better equipped to resist falling for these traps. Remember also that we increase our ability, stability, and responsibility when we increase our accountability to God. Keep prioritizing time with Him each day and continue reaching out to the sponsors and accountability partners that the Lord has put in your life.
“For good judgment and common sense…trust in the Lord completely; don’t ever trust in yourself. In everything you do, put God first, and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success.” Proverbs 3:5-6
Principle 8: Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and by my words.
“Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.” Matthew 5:10
Step 12: Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
“Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.” Galatians 6:1
