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)
Voluntarily submit
Identify character defects
Change your mind
Turn over character defects
One day at a time
Recovery is a process
You must choose to change
Focus  Question:

What character defect are you going to ask God to remove?  What will you stop doing and what will you start doing? 


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.
