So you have accepted Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Savior, Now what?
It’s a Road to Recovery…
Recovery from what?
Your sinful nature, depression, addictions, etc., which you are all free from but….You must believe.
Let me Explain, because of the well known story of Eve eating from the FORBIDDEN Tree, and Adam part taking and eating as well, they fell into Disobedience. SIN.
but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.'” Genesis 3:3
Not only were they in disobedience they did not Confess their sins or had taken Responsibility for their Actions nor Repented. They Blamed others for their mishaps.
It’s almost like, you have this cool friend, right? You give him your puppy to take care of, (hold on there is a point) and You tell him “you can basically feed him anything you want Dog food or even food from your table, But DO NOT give him Chocolate.“
You trust that when you come back all will be well and you will see your cute puppy soon. Then all of a sudden, go over to pick up your Puppy. And he DIES in your loving caring arms. And you ask your “Cool Friend” “What happen!” and he tells you “Well the puppy that you gave me to take care of was whining and wanted the chocolate I was eating.” “YOU FOOL” (I’d imagine you’d say that)
[Note: I am not saying anyone is a dog here…jeez, just an example 😛 ]
Wouldn’t it have been a little easier to forgive your “cool friend” or much more honorable for him to come at you sincerely and say”I’m so sorry. Yes, I gave him some of my chocolate. I didn’t think this would happen, Please forgive me”, and he repents and asks for your forgiveness?” (this is just an example)
The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”
Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” Genesis 3:12-13

This is why we are all born into Sin. Nothing we can do can wash away our SIN, it is by Grace we are saved!
We bare Sin on our backs, & at times we carry the same chains of sins from Generations upon Generations. We must STOP this vicious cycle of being DISOBEDIENT and go towards LOVE, to GOD! These “burdens” are withholding you from entering GOD’s Holy Kingdom.
JESUS CHRIST died and took the BLOW! He took the Punishment of every single PERSON! He was the Lamb of GOD.
In the old days they used a Lamb as a sacrifice unto GOD to wash away their sin at that time. Jesus CHRIST was that LAMB for our SINS he Was GOD’s sacrifice.
It is important for us to Confess our sins to GOD. So CONFESS and Believe in Jesus Christ who died for your sins, Who washed you clean from all sins & Trust and know in your heart that GOD Loves you so much he Forgives You.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all that you have, heart, body, mind & spirit. PRAY, ask in JESUS precious name for this. This is where you should start.
You lust, and have not: you kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: you fight and war, yet you have not, because you ask not. James 4:2
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall Psalm 55:22
If you are worried or negative thoughts are attacking you, you must TRUST in the LORD and that GOD is taking care of everything and He has washed you clean from ALL unrighteousness!
Just remember that every level you are in with GOD, with Christ you get a new revelation, EACH verse is oozing with POWER, REVELATION & GOD!!!!
This Video will Help put it into Perspective…

GOD LOVES YOU
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:8
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
What does it mean to LOVE?
Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1 Corinthians 13:7
