Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

We want to be rescued but we don’t want a rescuer. This is our dilemma. We want to be rescued but we don’t want to have to admit that we can’t dig ourselves out of the hole we’ve dug for ourselves. We are on a sinking ship manned by drunken sailors and there are no lifeboats.

Christ is our rescue plan. From the moment Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, God had a plan for restoration and reconciliation. Christ was that plan. God didn’t leave us on our own after we had disobeyed Him. His love for us was so great that He gave us His Son as a rescue plan.

In recovery, we go against everything our compulsive self-reliance screams for us to do. In recovery, we learn how to rely on God and surrender to His perfect rescue. We can’t rescue ourselves. Christ is our rescue. He left the ninety-nine to find the one. Christ’s love has rescued us from a life of isolation, pain, loss, and bitterness. Christ has set us on new ground with others who have also been rescued. The rooms of recovery are filled with the rescued. We are the rescued and are forever in Christ’s care.

Jesus, thank You for rescuing us. We are learning to rely on You and not ourselves. Thank You for giving us a way out of darkness and sin. You are our rescue plan. And we are the refugees from the darkness. May we always be in Your beautiful light.  Amen.
