Recovery Part 1


RECOVERYrestoration or return to any former, normal, and better state; the action or process of regaining possession or control of something stolen or lost.



EVERYONE has issues and we all need RECOVERY.


1 John 5:17 All wrongdoing is sin


SIN = Missing the bullseye; less than God’s best; less than perfect.


Romans 3:21 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.


The first step is to stop DENYING and start ADMITTING.


Proverbs 28:13 Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.


How we choose to respond determines the OUTCOME.


Proverbs 5:21-23 21 For your ways are in full view of the Lord,

   and he examines all your paths.

22 The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them;

   the cords of their sins hold them fast.

23 For lack of discipline they will die,

   led astray by their own great folly.


Recovery is a process and takes…



  1. TIME.




  1. WORK.


  1. HELP.


But is starts with CONFESSION.


1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

James 5:16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.
