UPPER ROOM 25TH NOVEMBER 2022 DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE
As I write this, I am 11 months into my journey to sobriety. It has been a difficult pathway with many challenges, but I am encouraged by Philippians 4:13. These words aid me in my recovery from addiction and empower me in my daily activities. Believing in the power of Christ makes all the difference. Although my circumstances overwhelm me at times, I gain strength from Christ.
There was a time when I thought that things would never improve, and I would have to abuse substances for the rest of my life just to cope. But Christ has given me the confidence to stay committed in my recovery and seek the spiritual, physical, and psychological healing I need. I know that I would have remained in the bondage of addiction if I had not had Christ as my source of strength. When we fix our minds on Christ and believe that through him all things are possible, it may not be easy, but Christ will strengthen us to push through.
Dear God, help us to see you at work in all things. Increase our faith in your providence. Amen.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
In good times and bad, I will praise the Lord.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
