10 Spiritual Tips For Recovery

Your freedom from addiction must first be gained in the spiritual realm before it can be experienced in the physical and emotional realms. Take to heart the following tips as you walk down the road to recovery.

#1 The time to begin your recovery is today. “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.” (Hebrews 3:15)

#2 Realize that recovery is a lifelong process, not a onetime event. “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” (Phillipians 3:12)

#3 Pray daily for victory! It is through prayer that God protects you. “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” (Matthew 26:41)

#4 Read your Bible every day in order to get strength from God. “My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word.” (Psalm 119:28)

#5 Meditate on Scripture to fight against falling into sin. “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” (Psalm 119:11)

#6 Attend church every week to worship God and grow with others. “Let us consider how we may spur one another toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another.” (Hebrews 10:24-25.)

#7. Share your struggles with caring loved ones. “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.” (James 5:16)

#8. Have confidence in God! Prioritize growing in your relationship with Him. “Seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6:33)

#9 Depend on Christ’s strength to stay drug free. “I Can do everything through Him who give me strength.” (Phillipians 4:13)

#10. Know that permanent change is possible. “Nothing is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37)
