On Eagle’s Wings, Meditations for Christians in a 12 Step Program

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him.

Jeremiah 17:7

In Step 3 we “made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God.”  To do this we need to trust God and have confidence that He will see to our needs; that He will protect us in times of trouble, guide us to the right action when under trials.  We also must have faith that God knows what is best for us, now and in the future.  Our program states that we must have a spiritual awakening, a complete personality change.  Believing this, we can pray with the saints of old, “Create in me a new spirit.” When we do this, God promises to bless us. This is why our program recommends, “Let go, Let God.”  With daily use of this step, we can be assured of doing the next right thing.

Anyone who trusts in God will never be put to shame.

Romans 10:11
