Let Go And Let God
Road to Freedom | Part 3
Road to R.E.C.O.V.E.R.Y.
R - Realizing I’m not God
E - Earnestly believe that God Exists
C – Consciously Choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.
“Love the Lord with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength” Mark 12:30
In Matthew 11 Jesus said “Come to me all you who are weary and overburdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me for my yoke is easy and my burden is light”
What could keep me from taking this step?
Pride; I don’t want to admit I need help
Prov. 18:12 “Arrogant people are on the way to ruin because they won’t admit it when they need help.”
Guilt - I’m ashamed to ask God for help (Psalms 40:12)
Fear - I’m afraid of what I’d have to give up.
Worry - I confuse the decision-making phase with the problem solving phase.
1 Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you”
Doubt - My faith seems so small
How do I take this step?
Accept God’s Son as my savior
Acts 16:31 “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved”
Accept God’s Word as my Standard
2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness”
Accept God’s Will as my strategy
Psalms 40:8 “I desire to do your will My God, your law is within my heart”
Accept God’s Power as my strength
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”
