According to the Journal of Religion and Health (August 21, 2019), 73 percent of addiction treatment programs in the U.S. include a spirituality-based element. There’s a reason for that.
The Bible is full of examples of the benefits of a spiritual connection for those seeking to improve their personal lives. We read this account of Abraham, one of the most prominent figures in history.
“He moved from there to the mountain east of Bethel, and he pitched his tent with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; there he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord” (Genesis 12:8).
Abraham went all in with his worship of God. What does it mean to worship? I’ll spare you the theological punditry of my seminary background. Let’s keep it simple.
Worship is giving God the best that he has given you.
Recovery Step: A dynamic walk with God is integral to lasting recovery. And worship is integral to that dynamic walk. So why not set aside a moment for worship right now? How does it work? Don’t make it complicated. Worship is giving God the best that he has given you.
