4/13/2014 - RECOVERY


Slavery :  The condition of being a slave; bondage; a condition of submission to or dominion by some influence, habit etc.

Recovery: The act or an instance of recovering; specific; a regaining of something lost or stolen a return to health, consciousness, etc. A regaining of balance, control, composure.

Isaiah 61:1Romans 7:14-25 , Rom 8:3-4 , Rom 7:24-25, Luke 4:18


You do not have to live in slavery in a spiritual sense. A slave to your past a slave to an addiction a slave to anything that is keeping you from living the victorious life that Christ died for you to live.
Worry can keep in bondage also. You are always recovering from something because we are always to be growing. Do not let others steal your joy or ensnare you or trap you. You must be balanced in your life and you can not have balance if you are bound by something. 
You have to continue to gain control of your life day by day and being in recovery whether it is from drugs,alcohol, pornography, or what ever ensnares and enslaves you. The flesh speaks a different language than the spirit and wants to be heard the flesh wants to war with the spirit because the spirit also wants to heard so this creates the war. God does not give up on you and neither will sin .
Rom 7:15-2315 For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. 16 Now if I do what I do not want, I agree with the law, that it is good. 17 So now it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me. 18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.21 So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. 22 For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, 23 but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.
Every body has a war going on within themselves and some do not know how to overcome this war. Christ Jesus is the only way to overcome this war. Do not judge people because you have know idea the war people have going on writhin themselves instead show grace as God shows us grace every day. See the reason behind peoples issues instead of judging them look beyond the actions and look at the cause. Do not volunteer to be a slave to something.  Those who are slaves to something can recieve freedom in and through Christ Jesus.

Know yourself and live in the truth of what you discover during your assessment of who you really are. Than you can begin to take the appropriate action to work on your weaknesses. You can not wait until your ship has taken on so much water that you are well on your way to sinking before you begin to take action. You have to be able to be truthful with yourself and be willing to bring your sin into the light because sin always wants you to be alone. Sin wants to keep you alone so that it's power can grow to the point of overpowering and overcoming you. You see when sin has you alone it has already deceived you to the point of secrecy. Anytime you find yourself alone with your sin you have allowed deceit to nestle in. This is why you must do continual inventory of self to see exactly where you are in your walk with Christ because the enemy is constantly seeking who he can devour . Knowing yourself and assessment of yourself is a sure way to gage where you are and what the holy spirit wants you to work on. Do not get so entangled that there is so much work that it becomes overwhelming. Watch the door of weakness because Satan is always waiting to come in . You are the one that allows him access. The handle is on the inside and most people do not understand this truth. Satan wants to come through the door of weakness and close the door behind him so that he can separate you from the light. Do not allow sin to take up residency. Pride is the culprit of prevention of acknowledgment of our sin. To turn the handle of pride is the first step needed in order to open the door to evict the sin that has gotten comfortable In your life. Without confession of our sin we become helplessly vulnerable to satans controlling will. If we guard the doors of weaknesses in our lives and be sure to fortify them than the enemy will not be able to come in so easily. Assessment and inventory of self gives you the opportunity to see the exposed areas in your life. Submission of your will and the laying down of pride enables you to seek out Godly wisdom . After seeking out Godly wisdom than you must be submissive to the Godly wisdom and advice that is given because clearly listening to the voice of justification and compromise does not nor will it ever work. If you are not willing to listen to truth and are only interested in listening to someone that will only tell you what you want to hear than you Clearly have no intention of change. The person that seeks out Godly wisdom and advice from someone that will lay truth before them wants to shoot down justification and compromise in order to Grow. If sin has you alone than it is time to take it and expose it to the light. Once into the light the sin will loose it's power over you. Sins enemy is called accountability. When you desire accountability for the sin that is now exposed , your chances of gaining victory over your sin increases tremendously. This is because truth is being embraced instead of denial. Take inventory of your life and assess where you are weak at and than take the necessary steps to strengthen the weak areas. It's time to stop allowing sin to get you alone and have it's way with you. It's time to go to work.

God has designed everyone with a void specifically for him to fill. We spend a lot of time and effort trying fill this void with everything except God. We were created to worship. The problem we face is worshiping other thing's. The things we place before God become idols. One of the most important parts of church is praise and worship because this is the one thing we can give God. 4 pillars of a mans heart is a book that every man should read. Men love to be worshipped just as God loves to be worshipped. The worship men receive from woman is different than the worship that we give God. If you worship God than you will be fulfilled not needing anything else to worship. Love is a spiritual quality and not a physical quality. We have either merged the two or completely swapped them out. Most people believe love is physical. You must be able to know he difference between the spiritual and the physical. When you love a persons spirit you are on the right track because the physical is going to deteriorate while the spirit can stay the same. The spiritual side of a person is what you should love. People fall in love with the physical and anything you can fall in with you can fall out of. You need the love for God and the love of God in your life and when you reach this place you will live contented. We love God and recieve his love and than we can love people correctly. The command of God to love others is based on the love we are to have for him and the love he has for us. God is not asking us to do anything he has not or is not doing . God loves therefore we are to love. We are to love even those who dislike us because it is not about them or us it is about God . Think about how God must feel with us and the love he continues to shower us with . Love your enemies and show the love of Christ because at one point we were an enemy of God and he continued to love us anyway and thank God for this. When we sin we are at enmity or hostile towards God and yet he continues to shower us with love and beckons us with love. What is missing in most peoples lives is the love of God and the love for God not thing's not people . Love will give you peace love will give you joy and most importantly contentment. You have to love God more than we love ourselves we are to love God more than anything or anyone. When we live this out our lives we bear more fruit than the world around us.

Work towards consistency daily in Christ. When we are receptive to the holy spirit it will continue to remind us who we are and who's we are. The spirit is always revealing and bearing witness to truth. There are people that are striving to break free from their sin while others are addicted to sin. Sin is like a disease and can quickly spread if left untreated. You have to come with a committed heart to follow Christ. When you are committed to following Christ and are committed to being disciplined , it is an impossibility for God not to change you. If the holy spirit is trying to lead and guide you and you are in the way realize you are quenching the spirit of God the spirit of truth from it's work in you. You should not be telling God you do not want to do his will and turn a deaf ear to him because if you think about it when we petition God we not only want God to hear our petitions we expect him to hear.Do not sink into your mess when you can ask for help. The holy spirit has never done us harm it has never done us wrong. Because people have failed us and let us down than it is easy to lump God into the same mold of not trusting. The flesh is so quick to act and tries to get ahead of the holy spirit. The holy spirit needs to be ahead of the flesh stirring the ship not into peace and calm waters not the flesh stirring us into the storm of chaos deceit and tragedy. Right will always reveal itself to you and when it does do not ignore it.
