How can you have VICTORY over your defects of character?
Principle 5: Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to
remove my character defects.
Beatitude: Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires. (Matthew 5:6)
Step 6: We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
Biblical Comparison: Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up. (James 4:10)
Step 7: We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.
Biblical Comparison: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us
from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
Identify character defects
Change your mind
Turn over character defects
One day at a time
Recovery is a process
You must choose to change
Dear God, show me Your will in working on my shortcomings. Help me not to resist the changes that You have planned for me. I need You to “direct my steps.” Help me stay in today, not get dragged back into the past or lost in the future. I ask You to give me the power and the wisdom to make the very best I can out of today. In the name of Jesus I pray, AMEN.
