Let’s talk about one of the demons that can bring you down the hardest – futility.
When you start believing the lie that recovery is futile, that your periods of relapse have rendered you hopeless, that is when you are in real trouble.
Dr. Jay Stringer writes, “When futility goes unaddressed, it will eventually taunt us with the message that nothing can be done to change our situation. We may hear ourselves say, ‘There is too much sexual brokenness behind me to overcome. I am unwanted and beyond repair.’”
Stringer adds, “The people who struggle the most to transform their sexual lives are not those who have fallen the hardest; it is those who have learned how to resign to small doses of unwanted sexual behavior over a lifetime.”
If you have endured a great fall, praise God for that! You are now ready for a great beginning.
Recovery Step: “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord” (Jeremiah 17:7). When your hope is in the Lord, everything is possible.
