We should be free from alcohol for good. It’s out of our hands and in the hands of God,
so we don’t need to worry about it or even think about it any more. But if we haven’t
done this honestly and fully, the chances are that it will become our problem again. Since
we don’t trust God to take care of our problem for us, we reach out and take the problem
back to ourselves. Then it’s our problem again and we’re in the same old mess we were
in before. Do I trust God to take care of the problem for me?
Meditation For The Day
No work is of value without preparation. Every spiritual work must have behind it much
spiritual preparation. Cut short times of prayer and times of spiritual preparation and
many hours of work may be profitless. From the point of view of God, one poor tool
working all the time, but doing bad work because of lack of preparation, is of small value
compared with a sharp, keen, perfect instrument working only for a short time, but that
turns out perfect work because of long hours of spiritual preparation.
Prayer For The Day
I pray that I may spend more time alone with God. I pray that I may get more strength
and joy from such times, so that they will add much to my work.
