Christian Recovery Devotional

Some of these people have missed the most important thing in life—they don’t know God.

1 Timothy 6:21

Developing and maintaining growing, loving relationships is a priority as a Believer in recovery. Many of us lived our lives thinking we didn’t need anyone else. In recovery, we discover that we have core beliefs that are contrary to living a life of fellowship with Christ and other Believers. One of these beliefs is, “If people knew me as I really am, they wouldn’t like me.” We bought into this lie from the enemy, but now it’s time to get rid of any part of this old belief that we’ve been hanging onto.

Another core belief is, “If I rely on others to get my needs met, they will never get met.” This belief separates us from Christ and causes us to become compulsively self-reliant. We start to have an “us against the world” type of mentality. We all have to rely on Christ in order for us to do anything in our lives. We need each other, and we need Christ in our lives; none of us can make it very far on our own.

One of the main tasks of recovery is learning who we should allow into our lives. We can’t allow everyone in, so we must prioritize friendships with people who know and love Christ. We look for people who walk the walk and talk the talk of Christ. These relationships allow us to grow past the old core beliefs we were once stuck in. We learn to rely on Christ and others to help us get our needs met. Because of our relationships with Christ, we know it doesn’t matter how others view us. We learn to let go of trying to make everyone like us, instead we become real and authentic.

Today’s Prayer

Father God, Help us to see the need to have healthy, genuine people in our lives. Help us to have true and lasting relationships that stand the test of time. Let us prioritize who needs to be in our lives while at the same time loving everyone. Help us to be like Christ in how he loved others and surrounded Himself with people who loved and cared for each other. Amen.
