FREE! Session 6: Circumstances Choices Consequences
Ponder, Action, Prayer, Challenge
Read Galatians 5: 24-25: Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
Sometimes keeping in step is like an uphill climb. We keep going. Sometimes it is like just flowing, running quickly to the goal as if running downstairs.
Think about what it would be like to be completely free of your addictive behaviour.
Take one of your addictive behaviours and imagine nailing it to the cross.
If you are ready, ask Christ for forgiveness and freedom from your addictive behaviours. Pray for the will to be ready. You may discover that there is a fight inside you as you seek to do this.
Continue being thankful and take the opportunity this week to think about the choices you are making every day and the impact these choices have on both you, and people around you.
Each time you navigate a step or a stair, or even just walking; just imagine keeping in step with the Spirit and asking our Lord to help you do this.
Prayer both morning and evening
Lord Jesus, help me not to react in and to the circumstances in my life with unwise choices. Help me seek you with all of my life, trusting you with all my circumstances, choices and consequences – past, present and future. In Jesus name. Amen.
Read the Key Verses, Galatians 6:7-8 everyday this week: Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
Memorise if you are able.
Optional, really significant verse to read and ponder: Read 1 Corinthians 10:13 everyday:
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
