Persistent

Be persistent in prayer, and keep alert as you pray, giving thanks to God. Colossians 4:2

Don’t give up two minutes before the miracle happens. Being persistent and following a task through until it’s completion is a huge part of the recovery process. Many of us struggled with not completing what was set before us. The task became a little difficult, or we started being uncomfortable, and we were done with the assignment God had entrusted us with.

Being obedient to God means that we need to be persistent to be able to complete the task He has given us. In 2 Kings 5:13-14, Naaman was told by Elisha to go to the Jordan River and wash off seven times to cure his leprosy. Naaman was not happy about having to bathe in the Jordan River, even one time. He saw the Jordan River as not clean and questioned if there were better rivers for bathing. Naaman did go and bathe in the river seven times and was cured.

God is calling us to be persistent even when it doesn’t look like we are in the cleanest of rivers. Recovery is messy business. The rooms of recovery can look a lot like the Jordan River. We are being called by God to be persistent with our own recovery and with how we love those who are difficult to love. God has given us the task of recovery and this task is a lifelong process. We are in recovery for a reason and not a season. We have been given the task of recovery, which calls for us to be persistent and not give up before the miracle happens.
