Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Proverbs 3:5-6 is an excellent verse for anyone involved in Christ-centered recovery. Most of us have spent a lifetime attempting to get through life on our own strength and our own understanding. We have lived with this false belief that whatever is in our minds is real. We never stop to consider that just because something is in our heads does not mean that it is real. In fact, there’s a good chance that it probably isn’t real.

There’s an old recovery adage that says, “Your best thinking got you into recovery.” While those words are direct to the point, Proverbs 3:5-6 does a great job of explaining about “our best thinking.” It pronounces how we shut ourselves off from living in God’s will as we are relying on our own understanding. Trusting in our own thinking causes us to not trust anything but ourselves. Our paths become our own and not the paths that God has set out for us.

In recovery, we start to address our long standing habit of compulsive self-reliance. Many of us have depended on our own thinking and ways of doing things for so long that we never gave ourselves an opportunity to trust God. The underlying issues of addiction and codependency stem from our futile attempts at being able to go through life without trusting and leaning on God. Recovery is providing us with insight and wisdom to see that we can’t do life without God. We are letting go of our lives and allowing God to be fully in control. We are realizing that God’s plan for us is far more wonderful than the plans we tried to have for ourselves. We lean on God, and He shows us His abundant plans for our lives.
